Racist Place. Please Avoid.
by Eugene M on
I had booked to stay here for a fortnight. I have been to Kerala 5 times, love it here and have many dear, platonic Indian family friends. I asked a close friend to help me with the move to Coco Land. Unfortunately, as we climbed the steps to my room, the staff started shouting at him as though he were a criminal, telling him that he had to wait outside whilst I went lugging suitcases on my own. He took it very graciously but I felt profoundly ashamed of how he had been treated. I left immediately and will never go back. I checked carefully that it would be fine for me to receive Indian guests before I made the reservation as I knew another friend would be visiting later in my stay. Glad I was able to avoid the same treatment for him. If you believe in basic human equality, please don't stay here. They don't deserve your custom.
A place for quiet stay

Not a place overflowing with comfort, but if you opt for a quiet stay with moderate facilities, this is for you. I found this place good for relaxation and also to focus on some work. Though the beach is near, the property is remote to the usual disturbances of a crowded place. The person managing the place is friendly and helpful. Power failure can be a problem as the establishment doesn't have a back-up facility.
Better than many of the options there!

Booked 3 rooms and was given 2 on the ground and 1 on the 2nd floor, so better confirm if you are travelling together.
Best part is the balcony in each of the room! and we spent most of the time there,
Getting Hot water maybe difficult for most part of the day, you will have to settle with warm water!
But i must say, among the other hotels in that vicinity close to beach, this was one of the good ones since its spacious and nice and 5 min to Hawa beach.
Person who manages it ,is really a nice guy and will help you with everything with a smile.
Looking forward to visiting it again whenever i visit Kovalam
Giving it a 3 star instead of 4 for the price thing!

spent a lovely few days staying here. The rooms are clean and very comfortable with good bathrooms and nice airy balconies. Everyone is very friendly and extremely helpful. Beach is a short walk away. Hotel is surrounded by great restaurants.
Just dont Opt!!

Travelled in October with family, expected a comfortable stay, seemed good in pictures but the pictures are too far off reality.
You have to pull your luggage yourself on a path with drainages on both sides, that is the only way leading to the resort.
Reaching the resort we discovered there was only one person as the staff who manages the whole resort. We booked three rooms out of which one was found to have a non-functional AC,when we asked to change the room he told us to add some extra charges, later we changed the room as there was no other option. And for the other two rooms it seemed they were controlling the temperature manually from somewhere.
Then there was no room service, they could only managed to give water that too not mineral, I am not sure was that filtered even? Since we reached at lunch time, we headed for the beach restaurants to have some food, as for our luck, beach was not so far but when it rains, the only way to the beach gets all drenched up in water.
Just for the lack of resort services we decided to be at the beach till night, when returned to the resort just to find again the AC was not working in the room we changed, manager and his technical guy tried and tried on,shouting at each other in their own language, and it went on till midnight, then not for our surprise he again asked to shift the room.
It was just one night stay at the resort,seemed like there were never ending problems.
Lack of maintenance and poor service. If you are charging like professionals, first be a professional or dont call it a resort.
All other resorts or hotels in this area at this price are providing far better services like proper AC, room service, restaurant,free internet etc
Not recommended for families.
