I had booked thos hotel and the beach sea view is BREATHTAKING. Also, the option to sit there and enjoy the breeze is AMAZING.
If you're going with friends or family, do check this out with awesome breakfast (I highly recommend to add it in your booking as the rates are very high in restaurants).
The hotel is situated in the beach front. The rooms have balcony opening to the sea side. The property is in the middle of Shacks and quite a place for some fun in the weekends. The rooms are modest and meets basic requirements
It has excellent location with a beach view. A central location with a foot outside the hotel is a foot on the beach, Very friendly and helpful staff.
The flaws overweigh.
It does not have lift, However, the staircase of bad quality with different stairs of different heights, which makes normal tourists a fuzzy effect.
The food here was of the needs some improvement.
it must be the effect of 31 January, they served with uncooked dumplings, very little choice for vegetarians hardly any vegetables except daal and paneer.
The pricing and photographs suggest you would get a fairly nice room. In reality the entire hotel is filthy and poorly maintained; the bathroom lacked ventilation and was covered in mildew, the towels and sheets felt dirty, and the pillows smelled bad. The a/c just barely worked and did not effectively remove humidity from the room.
The rest of the hotel was covered in dust, dirty dishes were left outside in the corridor for the whole time we were there (two nights). Additionally the rooms have no sound insulation. The location is good but there are plenty of other options in the same area .I would not go near this hotel again.
Hotel Neelakanta location is one of the Best in Kovalam with most of the rooms sea facing. One can have a view of the beach while sitting on the bed. Also its wonderful experience while you are swimming and also have a view of the sea. The maintenance needs a lot to be improved. There was a 9 hours power cut on 28 Nov and also on 29th morning,2018. There is a 15% discount on restaurant but food is not good.
