The rooms are large and comfortable, the views from the balconies excellent. There are fridges, AC, fans and the beds comfortable. Plenty of places to eat nearby. One great advantage of being on the beach-front is to be able to walk easily to the water. I found the service from Davie to be excellent - he was so ready to fit in with room cleaning, and even offered us a tour of Kovalam. Padma, the manager, was already ready to attend to any problems we had, and was quite a knowledgeable guy if you get talking to him. There are some downsides, which affect all frontal rooms at Kovalam. The sun streams onto the balconies for most of the day, the heat making it impossible to sit out there except in the morning and evening. But because this accommodation is on the corner, two of the rooms face Hawa beach, while the other two face Lighthouse beach. Those facing Hawa beach (or Sea Rock beach) get less sun, so you can sit out most pleasantly right up to around 1pm, watching the fisherman and swimmers do their thing. Another possible downside or upside, depending on your preferences, is that it is situated at the northern end of Lighthouse beach. If you want to swim and hang out up the southern, foreigners end of the beach, it is quite a walk. But if you prefer the more real Indian life at Hawa beach, you are right there, unless you get tired of watching Indians screaming in the water and walking the beach in their saris. It's a personal choice, but we found the northern end less pretentious and more relaxed, aside from the problem of Domestic tourism overcrowding in the peak season. The sound and smell of the speed boats are a problem, but really it's a minor irritation. Then there is the problem of the bad tap water, which affects most of the places in that area of Kovalam. Padma is aware of the problem, and has tried to address this, but in the end, I expect they will need to install a good water filter - Kovalam's municipal water is not good. Most locals use well water, but they may soon find the development in the valley will dry up these wells, as it has done in so many places in India. In all, these are excellent rooms. I can recommend them.

Ok , for 25 euros per room per night, with A/C and an ensuite bathroom, what do you expect? The room was clean, though sheets/towels old, but there was wi-fi, a TV and a fridge, with a balcony with just awesome beach views.....5 metres to the beach and all shops/restaurants. Ask for the deluxe (????) room on 2nd floor for the best balcony and view. On arrival, ask at the adjacent shop and they phone the owner.

We have stayed for 18 days all over Kerala and the 4 nights that we have spend at passage to India resorts kovalam was by far the most disappointing. water in pipes are sticky and dirty. No maintenance and no basic hygiene whatsoever!.the rooms were smallish with a small balcony. Strictly average. Normal selling rates of this resorts is A/C ROOMS ;1000 RUPEES AND NON A/C ROOMS 600 RUPEES, I don't know how they ask higher rates than a good hotel. he AC never worked and in spite of several complaints, the reception guy always said try after 5 minutes it should be working by now. and have to say this is the worst hotel on the planet! All in all not a great stay and we wouldn't go back.
