Kovalam Beach Hotel
Ranked #30 of 92 Kovalam B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

So after negative reviews still gave it try since the photos were really nice. I must say the place is really close to the beach just 40-50 steps, rooms are good and clean. The reason i am giving 1 star is because of their staff and service. On day 2 of my stay (check out day) they did not have a buffet breakfast so the person in charge told us to order alacarte food, i only ordered for 2 egg white omelette and toast bread, upon check out the manager charged 160 Rs for the omelette and said egg is not included in the buffet breakfast, oh common instead of the entire buffet breakfast you cannot serve your guests with omelette ? Which hotel on earth does not give eggs in the breakfast ? Also he did not provide me the invoice or bill for that charge, so i know he took it. The owner should really think about such incidents as these are degrading the hotel ratings. I would surely like to stay here again but will opt for Room only option since they charge you for the breakfast but never give you one and ultimately you have to buy your own breakfast. Recommended for stay.

Room Tip: Do not choose rooms on 3rd floor

It was a wonderful trip to Kerala during monsoon.
We stayed Kovalam for 3 days and it was a memorable experience.It was raining almost all the day and night, the beach was peaceful. The hotel is a small boutique one on the end of the beach, enjoyed the food and ambience.

We stayed in this hotel( delux room)from 17 Feb to 21 st Feb. booked through agoda. It was an leisure trip. Online Photo is always good . We choose this hotel after reviews. But when we entered in this hotel . It was not like that. In four days we could not get hot tea. We asked for south Indian food which was not available. Only in day time lady at the reception could understand Hindi & English . Once that lady gone there is no body whom you can tell your requirement. We order whatever was available there i.e. Paneer Butur Masla . But they served us Manchurian type dish of paneer. Which was not eatable.About Wash room- at first glance it look that everything is fine once you use than one can know . Bath tub was too small that an average built person can not adjust in that . Hot water available only after complain. only small bath soap was available in washroom. Air condition was fitted at the head . If you feel hot and try to adjust the temperature of AC than you feel cold. TV Remote button was not working. We requested to change the remote but request unheared.

Room Tip: i dont think there is any room with good view

We stayed in this hotel from 17/2/2017 to 20/2/12. Gone through other reviews but this property do not match with the review. We stayed in deluxe sea see view room. You can have small view in between tree. Service is very poor. Only in day a lady in reception can understand Hindi or English. After that nobody is there who can understand even English. Washroom looks good but not good as bathtub size is too small that you can not sit properly. Towel are old. No dustbin in wash room. If you wash your face at washbasin the whole floor get wet. Only small size soap is available in washroom. Very dim light in washroom. In bed room blanket is very thin . And the is installed at above the head. If you switch on the AC you will get cold after five ten minutes. Few buttons of TV remote was not working. Ask to change but no response. Breakfast is ok but if you wish to have dinner than you are disappointed. First there is no body whom you can tell your requirement . Somehow if communicate you will think why you have ordered food. We have booked this hotel through aggoda. Not worth at the price.

We stay at beach hotel I and II for 2 nights (we were a big group). The beach was in front of us. Location was great. Rooms were good at both beach hotel. Rooms were however overpriced, but we paid certainly for the location and it was high season, so it might be ok.

The Beach Hotel II is supposed to be a hotel of a higher category. So it is very surprising that they don't allow you to pay by Credit Card. As it was demonetization, it was very difficult to become Indian currency. We told to the manager several times, that we really would like to pay by card, especially as the amount we had to pay was high (15'000 Rupees).... In most place we visited in India, people find solutions (e.g. by using the credit card device of a relative). But not here. At the end, we pay in US Dollar, but at a low rate ... As a result, we didn't use their restaurant...
