This is the fourth time that we have stayed at this hotel. We had a room on the fourth floor, with a great view of the sea and sunsets. The room was large, well equipped and supported by great room service, including a very efficient laundry service. We only used the restaurant for breakfast, but this was available to a...

We spent two weeks at the Turtle on Beach on a Mercury package and this was our third stay in Kovalam. We arrived at around 4am and our check in was quick and efficient and our room was ready for us. We stayed in an ocean view room on the 4th floor and were really pleased that we paid the...

Visited this hotel for one night. I have to admit the rooms were amongst the most spacious I've stayed at. They were also very clean and well kept. The excellent views from the attached balcony is an added advantage. The food at the coffee shop was lower than average and took extremely long to arrive. The breakfast buffet was disappointing.

A different set up and wonderful boutique type hotel in Kovalam. Great feel and nice stay. Lots to do around. Only drawback is no.private beach for the hotel guests. Otherwise....... there us a lot of scope for a wonderful vacation. Food and beverage is excellent with equally impeccable service. Kudos to the team.

Issues: - I made a booking on the day of arrival through the hotel website, and arrived at 2am: they did not recognise my booking or have a room ready, took until 4am before I finally got into a room. - I had emailed the same day to request a transfer from airport and they did not reply - They...

Some reviews mention the hotel doesn't have a private beach, it's not licensed or the walk to the beach is not short. All true, but that's all known prior to arrival so there's nothing to complain if you know what to expect. What is real - the hotel is on the slope and overlooks the sea, the rooms are nice,...

We stayed there with 2 other families. Rooms are clean and spacious. We had a beautiful balcony view of the ocean and the pool below. Staff, service and food is excellent. The only downside is that they don't have a private beach area. The beach is a 10 min walk down a steep hill - going down is fine however...

Although there are some impressive wooden carvings around the hotel, the use of dark wood and clunky furniture in our bedroom was not helped by the total lack of drawer space, few shelves and hardly any hangers in the cupboard. Having lived out of our suitcases for the previous tour we had looked to a little more convenience. The lights...

Sadly not a 5 star or even close but apart from the management perfectly adequate. Hotel décor very impressive in parts but tired and dated in others but in fairness to the hotel they were addressing this with ongoing maintenance especially on the decked areas but this did mean smell of creosote for 2 weeks and brown foot soles. Rooms...

The original wooden door to my balcony had been replaced by a shower-like glass door with a finger-size gap to the outside on all four sides. Mossies love me and I reacted with shock but the staff laughed; didn't understand, said 'you have plug-ins'. I did a quick check and, yes, it was almost identical to the bathroom door. The...
