Stay with family for three nights. Had several incidents that showed the total disregard for customer service from the staff. Even though the name says "on the beach" there is a very steep walk to reach the beach from the hotel. The breakfast even though had lot of options, the quality was just average.

If you want to be robbed, cheated, ripped off or lied to, this is the place to go! Lighthouse beach is disgusting dirty horrible place, but is the best of the lot, so you can image the others. Steer well clear, worst place i've ever been. TERRIBLE.

I was supposed to wait for more than half an hour after check-in, to get my luggage into the room. We called the reception guys twice and they kept on telling that yes we are sending your luggage. It is not a budget hotel! it comes in luxury hotels, so we expect services from them. Kovalam has electricity issues. The...

We booked a garden view room which was ground floor - you could hear the sea and it was nice and quiet. Nice room, quite dark could have done with more lights, and maybe a few more hangers in the wardrobe as there is not much storage space for a long stay holiday. Clean room though and shower was good...
