Hotels at Covalam beach do not have access for car and you need to depend on the staff of hotel to carry your baggage. This hotel doesn’t have lift and stair case steps are very steep that if you are allotted third floor you will not dare to come down again. You will get exhausted. Hotel is little inside comparing...

This hotel is a bit dated, it almost felt like an east village walkup. Nice surprise when we got to our room and saw the balcony with the ocean view, so nice. The AC worked but got too cold and was freezing on my head at night. The control didn't work, so couldn't point it in another direction. Besides the...

Stayed in Hotel Neelkanta from 19/01/2017 to 21/01/17. It’s almost on the light house beach, the best beach in Kovalam. Nice view from the see facing rooms and its restaurant. Added advantage is its small but nice swimming pool. One can enjoy swimming in the see as well as in the pool. Nice and cooperative staffs. Various options for breakfast...

I found it difficult to rate this place because there were so many conflicting factors. There is no disputing its amazing location - that is worth 5 stars. But it was extremely shabby and pretty grubby in most respects. It was a similar standard to an Indian home stay I have done in the past. I think some minor areas...

Stayed at Neelakanta between Christmas and New Year in 2016. We had a wonderful time all round. Notable was the courteous staff who were available round the clock for any need small or big. The restaurants provide scenic views and sumptuous food that complement the experience. I was staying with my aged parents along with other family members and the...

Visited in January 2017. This is perhaps the best location on light house beach. Rooms are clean and services are up to the mark. one can enjoy the beach even from the balcony of the room. The only demerit is lack of lift.

Stay away from this hotel if you can. Staff is rude and arrogant. Rooms below substandard, toilet and bathtubs are dirty, A/c doesn't work before 9pm (which they wont tell you in the beginning) and the cherry on the cake is staff is rude and arrogant.
