“Relaxing and enjoyable, great location”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights to start our trip in India. Very close to sandy beach. Two pools. Nice rooms and villas. Buffet dinner and lunch was very good. Our doughter used the spa and was very satisfied.

Room Tip: Do not choose the rooms close to the lower/beach pool. To far away from the restaurant.

I had visited the hotel on 30th December, 2013. The total staff consisted of 2-3 persons only. The room was not cleaned well. Intercom was not working, I needed to ask for everything (towels, soap, water). No food was available, They argued that unless significant occupants are there in the hotel, they won't prepare anything.

I had visited the hotel on 22nd & 23rd February 2013. The hotel was recommended by "YATRA.COM". I was informed by "YATRA.COM" that your hotel has 3 star deluxe facility.

However I was disappointed because your hotel was like a lodge at Kalbadevi (Mumbai) or Chandni Chowk (Delhi).

The total staff consisted of 2 persons only. I was given a room on 3rd floor, but the lift was out of order & I had to walk 3 floors everytime. Inspite of informing the so called manager that I had undergone a bypass surgery, he did not allot me a room on the lower floor. The bed sheets were also dirty & torn. There is no restaurant as claimed on the website and the filtration plant of the swimming pool was also out of order.

I feel that "YATRA.COM" in connivance with the hotel has cheated us. Repeated calls to "YATRA.COM" to make alternate arrangements also yielded no results.

I recommend that no one should ever stay at this hotel or travel with "YATRA.COM".

With Regards

Room Tip: Never use this hotel. Take reference from known persons only.Do not go by photos on the website.

1. No room service available even after repeated request.
2. Does not clean the room even insisting repeatedly. Doesn't mop/clean the floor everyday.
3. Intercom was not working.
4. Breakfast is worst. No taste in the food. Even tea is hopeless.
5. No channels were coming in TV.
6. Too much noise created by other guests as they stuff too many people in a single room.
7. And worst is, do not hand over the keys to the manager while going outside. They might allot your room to somebody else. It happened to me.
8. Not a good value for your money.

I stayed here on 22-23rd November 2012. The Location is great, a 5 mins walk brings you to Kovalam beach & under light house. My room on 2nd floor is too spacious with 3 sections and big balcony with a view of kovalam beach. Just enjoy the sunset. Kovalam has frequent power cuts but the power back up is there with excellent TV reception. The hotel service is prompt & boys are on their toes. I enjoyed the b/f it was tasteful. There's no Lift but the eateries along kovalam beach complements the missing restaurant. The tariff is moderate so a value for money and if you are not staying much in hotels and spending days time in roaming in town/beaches, this hotel is for you. Not fit for guys who just want to cool their heels.

This hotel is around 1 km from beach next to sagara resort. I stayed here October 31. Hotel is average. Rooms are spacious. They have a small dining area near to swimming pool which they call as restaurant. Rooms, and room service are good. Its worth for amount paid.

Room Tip: Take a room in top floor
