The hotel is not having parking facilities, breakfast area and they also dint give this idea while booking their rooms. The staff doesn't have manners to talk to the visitors including women. Toilets are not clean. We observed many lizards. Also there is no lift in the property. We had to climb 3 Stairs with heavy luggage.Disgusting experience. Wont suggest a stay in this hotel.

This is a cheap Hotel and there is no Hygiene in the Hotel. We had a stay for 2 nights in this hotel, we found 3 Lizards in our room and ants all over the corners. We requested them to change our room, but he said you will find the lizards in all the rooms as this building is 20year old and was asking us to leave the Hotel as he would be very happy if we leave their Hotel. The person there has no manners to talk to people, no manners to talk to women's specially. We early checked in from the Hotel . PATHETIC EXPERIENCE. Request you not to waste your money by staying here.

The staff here are fantastic; we had a nighttime flight out of trivandrum and while we had to check out of our room they set us up on the balcony to give us a place to base ourselves & our bags for a few hours. The location as well is just great. Air con etc, very close to the beach - can't think of a bad thing to say. Our rooms were clean and large, all in all a very friendly place.

This year we were joined by our daughter and 8 year old granddaughter and we had two rooms on the first floor for a total of 18 nights. Nas and Noushad were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Tea on the roof terrace looking out over Lighthouse beach is always a winner! Efficient aircon and ceiling fan gave us comfortable nights, and having clean bedlinen and towels every day was much appreciated. Sumi the taxi driver proved a real asset, taking us to Poovar, Trivandrum and the Elephant sanctuary. We enjoyed meeting many old friends along the beach and hope to return to Kovalam again in 2020.

This is a wonderful, quiet little hotel about a 10 minute walk from the beach. Rooms have big, comfortable beds, with air conditioning and ceiling fans. Sheets and towels are changed daily, and the rooms are spotless. Nas and Noushad are super-helpful and always on hand, regardless of the time of day or night. Fantastic value, and I'll definitely be returning next year!

Stayed here for a week and a half at the end of April/beginning of May. Room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff was very welcoming. I honestly can't think of a bad thing to say about the place.

We spent 4 days at greenshore, kovalam and it was perfect. The location was just nicely out of the way yet right next to lighthouse and the beach. The management and staff are truest outstanding and nothing was too much trouble either by email or when we arrived. Our room was very spacious and had fridge, tv etc and the most comfortable bed ever. We had a judge balcony with a sea view too. There was a rooftop for breakfast or just to chill with great views. The staff are amazing and organised a trip to Trivandrum and our taxi back to the airport too. Thanks again greenshore it was a fantastic end to our 3 weeks of travelling.

We've stayed here many times and have always found it utterly charming. The 'boy's' Nasser and Noushad couldn't possibly do more for us. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and the bedding was changed every day. It is no more than a 10 minute walk to the beach where all the facilities that you would expect are to be found. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Greenshore to anyone.
