Sea view with cool breeze


Amazing sea view with better accommodation and good service for the gust. Food is good. But less options for vegetarians. Must visit once in your life. Much popular among foreigners. Indian visitors are rare. So please promote this place and explore with this resort

Average Hotel with minimum facilities


Minimum facilities only available. But the caretaker was kind. Location is good. Very near to sea shore. Also there is a good veg. Hotel within 5 to 10 minutes walk. They buy the Breakfast from outside which was very poor. They run in side restaurant only during season. Hence traveller must check with season or without breakfast

Perfect location and great value


We were looking for a nice budget hotel in Kovalam. Its hard to get a clean budget hotel in this part. We stayed here for two days. Building and Rooms : There are 2 building in this hotel, the older and the newer one both were decent. All the rooms were large, with TV and Fridge. Cleaning: They are regularly cleaned and beds and towels changed daily. Staff : Staff was really helpful and friendly, Snail is the owner, Joseph on front desk and yes Mr. Biju the booking Guy. Restaurants : There are a few beach restaurants in front, all providing very good food at reasonable prices. The beaches : The beaches are good, particularly Samudra and Lighthouse. Good value for money. I would recommend this hotel to everybody. Advice to travelers: There was no lift so possibly not suitable for those with mobility issues and please keep a torch with you to use "tuk tuk".

Overall cleanliness was fantastic there


Parking facility was available there. Hotel was good and I faced no problem to find this hotel. I stayed there only for two days. I visited there by private car with my family. Food facility was available there but I preferred my food from outside the hotel. Exterior and interior look of the hotel was well maintained. Staff behaviour was friendly. I booked AC room there and AC, geyser and other necessity items were available there and functioning properly. Hill view was visible from the room window. I belong from Madhya Pradesh and my mother tongue is Hindi. There was no delay in allocation the room. Sightseeing trip was managed by our self. Kovalam place is lovely destination for outing. I have no suggestion for hotel improvement. Overall cleanliness of the hotel was very nice.

Good stay ; recommendable hotel


My stay was good at this hotel as I visited with my family and stayed for two days. The interior appearance was good. The room was spacious and well maintained with all the amenities and had a good view of hill. I did not take my food in the hotel. There was no delay during sign in and sign out process. I did not utilize any activities as I went out for sightseeing. After a long time only for few hours, I went there. Nothing was arranged by the hotel and even the transportation was by our own for sightseeing. The money which I spent was reasonable and I like to recommend this hotel to other travellers. There is no suggestion from my side.
