I checked out after one night of a three night stay, I've never done that bedlee I checked out after one night of a three night stay, I've never done that bedlee

by ReallyWildEep on February 20, 2017

I've stayed in many places and never before have I checked out early. This is a perfect example of a conveyor belt property - get them in, get their money, get them out. It trades on a view (which is good) but seems to think that's all that's needed. When we first arrived the manager asked for our names then immediately asked what time on our final day we would be checking out. Way to make people welcome! We had booked a deluxe double with balcony, and were given room 13. This turned out to be prophetic... we tried putting the aircon on but it didn't work (nobody's fault, so I'm not having a go at them for this). I assumed the batteries had gone in the remote so on our way out I advised the manager. I was met with a patronising look and asked if I'd like him to show me how to use the unit. Wow. They did try and fix it but it couldn't be done that evening as the shop wasn't open, which was fair enough. I asked if there would be a reduction in price for the night and was met with resistance and finally a "maybe". I didn't have the heart to ask why certain lights and switches didn't work, by that point. Later I tried using the shower. It was a joke. The hose didn't fit into the rail, the rail wasn't fixed properly to the rail fitting, and the doors could not be shut being that they had come off their rollers in the semi-circular unit (the doors were square?!). The result was that once the shower was on it snaked around like a mad thing and water would fly everywhere and through the gaping split in the doors, soaking the floor (there was no bath mat supplied to soak). I know this sounds like a comedy sketch but the shower was basically unusable because as soon as it was on, the showerhead had to be held with one hand and then you couldn't physically wash yourself/your hair. The shower floor filled up with water, the plughole was black with gunk (which was concerning given that it was struggling to deal with the water and I was stood in it) and the water itself was cold to tepid. I stood there and thought "hang on, I'm paying fifty quid or more for this, per night, what the hell...?!" and decided that I'd call it quits and look elsewhere. A decision I didn't regret for one second. When we left, the manager stood there with a petulant look on his face. I was charged the full price (for aircon that we didn't receive) and not once did he ask why we were leaving. He probably thought we were leaving because of the aircon. We weren't. On the plus side the bed is firm but comfortable, and the view from the balcony is good. You could stay here just for that (even though there are cheaper better views to be had in the beachside hotels) and ignore the fact that that's the one good thing about this place, but it's not exactly cheap for the locality and there is no real 'service', especially where the manager is concerned (he's rude). So yes, you could stay here for the view and nothing else, but frankly, why would you want to?

Total disappointment inspite of prior communication and clarification via emails. Total disappointment inspite of prior communication and clarification via emails.

Before paying them advance, I had got confirmation via email that they will provide us room in ground floor. The air port pick up from TRV was smooth and without any problem and since we reached at night, we requested for dinner to be ready, which we got. But that was it. They gave us room in first floor. The steps were very steep. Service was not upto the mark. Checked out after staying for only two nights, because of not so good behavior of their front desk staff Sreedev, who was also a great liar (inspite of prior written communications, he continued to lie). The view from balcony was good and bathroom was clean. They arranged for lunch and dinner in the room as we requested but still, hospitality was missing. Don't know how the other guests slept in the blaring loudspeaker. Their website is totally misleading, by the way. They do not have any restaurant in their resort (another glaring lie!). The staircases are too steep and if you have to eat b'fast, you have to climb down to the basement (which the receptionist Sreedev insisted on calling "Ground floor").

A good place to sleep, that's all! A good place to sleep, that's all!

Good things -- Good location, spacious room, good furniture, clean bathroom, good quality of sleep. Bad things -- No room service, staff is dead and non-obliging, no breakfast available, nothing. We took a triple room, but despite begging the staff, they did not give us a third blanket. That's not hospitality!!!! Advice -- good, only if all you expect is a place to sleep. Bad, if you expect anything more. I will never stay here again!

Excellent position and service Excellent position and service

The resort is located at the best possible location......bit away from all the noise of the market. It has got great view of the seashore and great views of the lighthouse can be seen. They are very honest as the staff. The best parts of the rooms are the bathrooms with shower stations, heated toilets etc and the great views. Beds are very comfortable. Has an average spa too. The restaurant too is not bad but serves mostly snacks. The private beach is really a true place to bathe away from the noise of the nearby major beach but with the same facilities. Must stay for luxury seekers but economic pundits.

A wonderful place to stay at Kovalam A wonderful place to stay at Kovalam

Varma Beach Resort, is a very good hotel to stay, it has a good service, the manager Sri Dev will be attending all your sugestions, with the posibillity to get to an almost private beach at only 5 min. walking. You can have a simple but delicious breakfast, the rooms are well maintaned, and is away from the main market of kovalam beach, so is a peacefull place to comtemplate the sea from the balcony of the room, highly recomended....all of this in a good price,,,,,
