“Cure Holiday”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Arrived on 07.01. until 02/04/2014, we had a great time at the hotel in Kovalam Grandsea Indien.Le staff very decent and clean. spacious and clean rooms, the price is a little high, but compensated by good and friendly service. It is sure that I'm not going to India in a five star hotel. the price for this quality is justifiable. The owner of the Hotel is very available and the needs of clients. The next time I return to the Grandsea Kovalam Hotel is still my home. Many of the personal success.

Room Tip: Nice room, nice balcony, some worries with the water pressure and hot water is not always the appoin...

Kovalam/Light house beach is where this property is and is in the interior like there is no main road or anything you gotta walk through a passage to get there. We were worried till we reached the entrance and even when we saw the building from the outside, but we were not after we got the room and the balcony view. I will not say we had the best view, but it was enough for what I had initially pictured. I had about 70% visibility of the sea and the rest blocked by near by buildings.
Coming to the room, we had requested for a sea view, and the rooms are bigger and cleaner.
But for everything you need to walk down like for water, food or anything.
I had asked for a 2 wheeler a month before I made the trip, the management promised me to get one and after reaching there they told it is not available, they should have taken it more serious and made arrangements than waiting for me to ask them because of which Auto, taxi costed extra with the new year around.

It is just a few minutes away from the light house beach and the shacks are amazing, the food especially they have all the cuisines.

Over all go here if you are just going to spend time in the beach and in the balcony. Dont expect good services here!!You are on your own. Give credit to the two boys who work here, they cook they serve they do the cleaning and everything.

Room Tip: Sea view of course

Great Place to stay!!!!
I was quite pleased by the way the Hotel staff and management treated me and my family.

With the help of Mr ChandraPrasad (part of Hotel management), I was able to arrange a get together with my old college friends in the roof top restaurant of the hotel.

Mr ChandraPrasad and his crew arranged excellent buffet dinner which was combination of both traditional Kerala and Chinese cuisine. We all had a wonderful time there.

However, what my Kid Diya liked is the fact that the Beach is a stone throw away from the Hotel.
Every now and then she wanted us to take her there and enjoyed to the core in the calm but naughty sea.

We are looking forward to visit the Hotel again in our next vacation.

regards
Ranji

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea are really great

We had taken one night stay at Trivendram,Kovalm beach,hotel grand sea before going to Munnar from KanyaKumari, hotel was nice and room is clean and big with a big attached bath,only the bad thing we face is the quality of water in the bath room was very bad initially,it was smelling very badly ,may be the room was kept close for so long or the supply water is bad. we inform to the care taker for the hotel ,but he cant help in this regard.
after flushing of 2-3 hour running water ,we found the water was liitle good to take bath.

We are happy to live here. We have a grand room with balcony and good view. The rooms are clean and it`s not long to go at the beach. 5 minutes. We are here for 4 weeks for treatments ayuveda and it`s near for the doctor and treatments. The hotel is not near on the street and tranquility. We want return next year and we want to stay at the same hotel.
We are from germany and it was the first time here and we like it very much.

Room Tip: the room for 2 people is good an our room 104 is very big and with a nice seaview.

The main problem is. Whatever was written here, It was not provided in the hotel. They were not knowing that breakfast was mentioned in Tripadvisor.

No Television due to Sea problems, Atlast they did not give me a bill too.

The Grandsea Hotel is a good deal, but to be fair you need good legs to stay here. A walk to the beach is about 5 minutes downhill, the walk back is uphill (duh) and at times very steap. The rooms are spacious and has A/C (ours did not work for 3 out of 7 days though) and attached bathrooms with hot water. The breakfast is served on their roof top and is continental.
