We stayed here for a night, and felt our choice could have been better. We did not feel welcome upon arrival. We had booked a standard sea view room . We were told that our reservation was only for partial sea view room which indeed overlooked the auto-rickshaw stand. The guy at front desk was rude, and asked us to talk to travelguru without really wanting to talk to us. Room type should have been rightly specified in travelguru or this hotel must have a working website. We didn't want to argue further. Room was spacious and clean. There is a TV, AC but no fridge. No lift. The corridors in our floor were never lit. It was dark always. Hotel is located right on the beach, just a few meters away from the waves. Only a few minutes by auto to the bus stand where the AC buses to Trivandrum start from. Plenty of restaurants nearby along the promenade overlooking the sea. Breakfast was simple and average. Will not stay here again. Found a few other beachfront hotels along lighthouse beach. Wouldn't have been a bad idea to explore those as well.
