Hotel Sea view Palace might not be a star hotel but our stay for 2 days at Kovalam was great. The rooms are not very spacious but the location is nice. The long balcony connecting all the rooms together is an ideal place to chill out with friends. There is a shack within the hotel premises which offers a variety off food and drinks. taste wise its good. There are AC rooms available and i really enjoyed staying at the top floor. If you can adjust on the rooms then this hotel is good. Staff is helpful.
