Visited for the 20th consecutive year 06/12/19 to 17/01/20. No other place comes near this gem. The location and entire staff from the MD and his wife down to the housekeeping team and everyone working at The Sea Face make it so special. I think the world will change drastically after Covid but hope we are able to return to see our special friends (family). Locals and returning guests. Stay safe all until we meet again.
we were there in early decmber ! The owner or manager was very sweet to wellcome us .we asked to see the rooms first before paying for room. rooms looked ok to us so we paid in full ! boy as soon as we got settle what do you think we saw thw ? the tub was a disaster,electric outlets were burn & electric fire can roast you any time ! Then came night & i lifted the bedcover & what do you think i found ? It had blood stains & some other stains !sheets were torn ! they had to go threw 10 sheets to find the clean sheets ! i was so upset for the money i paid to stay there was a mistake but i was too sick to move ! i would sugesset to tripadvisor people or any agency that they should go in person to to see anyhotel before recomending it ! anna
Rude staff. The way these restaurant people talk is terrible and rude. We went with the baby and took along some baby food with us, since the baby cannot eat outside food always, the staff shooed us away and said outside food not allowed. This is not acceptable at all
We have been visiting this Hotel for a number of years. We stay with family in Trivandrum city & use the Hotel facilities to escape the heat & humidity of the city! There is a reasonable charge to use the pool, sun loungers & towels. This Hotel is a bit dated but clean and the staff are excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is good, we did not eat here in the evening on this trip but have in the past. The menu has an excellent choice of Indian food, however like most places the lunch menu is restricted but still plenty of choice! Even my very picky 10yr old found something to her liking!! We have stayed overnight in the past & the rooms were dated but clean & comfortable! They are in the process of updating & renovating these at the moment. Direct access onto Hawa beach & the lighthouse beach, great for a walk. Also, in the morning good to watch the local fishermen bringing in their nets! …
This review is about the hotel's restaurant only. The location on Hawa Beach is superb. You climb up the stairs to a very nice terrace that overlooks both the beach and their pool. The view is especially delightful at sunset. This hotel is one of the few places with a liquor licence, so we went to legally drink! The tables were nicely laid for dinner, but the professional waiter was happy to let us stay for drinks only. We had beers, and rum which they served as requested with ice, limes and soda on the side so we could mix it to our liking. Drinks are not cheap, though. I quite liked the ambiance, relaxed, yet a bit more sophisticated than most other places on the beach. I thought we might have dinner. I read the menu and found that they do mostly Western food, some of it quite old-fashioned to boot, and some BBQ. There was no Indian food generally, and nothing at all for vegetarians. Regretfully, we had a few drinks, and had dinner elsewhere.…
My husband and I took a short trip to Kovalam for 2 nights. We have visited Kovalam many times, but have never stayed at Hotel Sea Face. The hotel is near the angle of Hawah beach and Lighthouse beach. The room was good, the bathrooms clean, the staff pleasant and the pool was well maintained. The breakfast included with the room was sumptuous. It was a relaxed holiday.
Such beautiful view of the beach with sun's reflection on it in the back drop of slender coconut trees makes you get a thrill once you step into the balcony of your suite/room. We did not want to leave the place!
This review is just for the food . We had a great expectation, but food quality was much below expectation. Moreover the charges where very high. May be due to season, but food quality needs to be improved a lot . There are plenty other options for dining all along the beach. Experimenting is the best way to find the best...Lucky next time.
Resort located at the correct place. Sea view rooms available.Rooms are very good,very friendly staff. Good parking area. Good restaurant especially seafood items. Can use pool facilities, if you have swimming suits with you. Overall experience “very good”.
We found the Sea Face to be a very good hotel with comfortable rooms in an outstanding location. The rooms were fully equipped to a high degree and had very comfortable beds. All linen and towels were changed daily It was ideally placed for the beach and the walkway to all the local bars and cafes. The pool was very clean and tidy. As it was the beginning of the season there was plenty of room to lounge about on the sunbeds. We did not eat in the restaurant but other guests assured us the food was very good. We did study the menu and it offered a wide range at reasonable prices. The weather was cloudy on a couple of days as the second monsoon was just coming to an end however this was most welcome and a break from the sun. The temperature was around 25-30C. So much so we now think November is a good time to go to Kovalam and avoid the growing band of tourists who go Jan - March. In general we really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Face and hopefully we will be going again.…
