“Run Down, but OK for Kovalam Beach”
Reviewed 24 January 2007

The Best Western Swagath is an older property with only central AC in the okder wings of the building. It's at the top of the hill directly above the Kovalam beach - good for access to either lighthouse or the other beach. Also near the Leela 5* hotel too. For US$75 a night it was overpriced and the included breakfast was marginal. If you stay the rooms in the new wing (numbered 500-515 and 400's) all are brand new with balconies overlooking the pool, in-room individual AC units and are very clean.
