I remember, when we came to this hotel in 2007. We were renting a room for 100Rs and for this money we got pretty awesome, clean and beautiful room with large balcony and a hanging chair. This year we came to Kovalam again. We were thrilled to stay in the same hotel, expecting same comfort and cleanliness, friendly staff and tasty breakfast. To our disappointment this hotel turned into a gross place... The rooms were so dirty, not saying about the smelly bathroom... Bed sheets were ditrty as well and seems, no one ever was washing these bed sheets. Restaurant by the hotel served tasty food... but i still would avoid it because it was quite dirty around (no one got a stomach bug though - we were happy about it). So we actually stayed there for only one day and we were so sad to leave, because our expectations, based on previous experience were totally ruined.
