This little hotel takes some beating, it is situated close to the beach, it is very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the pool is probably the best we have found, private and crystal clear water. Very good value . Book it, you will not be disappointed. We will definitely stay here again.
Cheap, clean, very nice and seviceminded staff. Close to the beach. Few rooms so you get to know both guests and staff
We asked for an extra bed for my daughter and they fixed it immedietly.
Suitable both for families, pairs and singles
he staff were so incredibly helpful. The pool was lovely. The location is fantastic, its right by the beach but back one row so its quieter.
It could have been a little cleaner, the sheets and towels were a bit stained but that was the only downside.
We had an enjoyable visit in Nov/Dec 1916 so we decided this time to stay for six weeks from mid November 2017 until after Christmas.
We had asked for the same room as last year, near the lobby, as this meant a better Wifi reception. Unfortunately there were some noisy guests on occasion who managed to disturb our sleep.
Previously I had spoken to the owner about some simple improvements like a few shelves in the wasted space in the lower half of the wardrobe. Nothing had been done which is a pity. They could do with replacing the rather outdated TV sets. They also discontinued the provision of drinking water in the room. The owner seems to be focused on adding some 'economy' rooms and an Ayurvedic clinic - I have my doubts as there are already too many in Kovalam. However, my partner consulted with the doctor and thought he was good, but did not have any treatment.
Otherwise nothing has really changed, and we still think this is one of the best options, especially if you want a pool (the sea is not really suitable for swimming). It is in a quiet location, but not far from the action. It is very clean, welcoming and quite comfortable, the pool is excellent (they now have nice new parasols from Switzerland) and prices are still quite reasonable. The staff haven't changed, most of them have been there for years, and really are one of the hotel's greatest assets. They are helpful, smiling, hard working, nothing is too much trouble.
If we return to Kovalam we will certainly stay again.
They are good & having very nice hospitalization next to beach (not beach view). But the staff and breakfast will not let you disappoint by their services. Swimming poll is best and very neat. Loved the stay, we had with this property.
