“Best hotel at low price and right on the Light House Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

This hotel is by far the best hotel in this price range and right on the Light House Beach.

Since it was mid January, the weather was not that hot, and there was enough wind from the sea to make the rooms cool, I asked for a non AC room on first floor. The tariff for non AC room during high season is 1500 Rs.+15% tax and in off season 800 Rs.+15% taxes. AC rooms are 2300 Rs.+15% Tax during season and 1500+15%tax in off season. Though it was high season but I bargained and got the off season rate. There are some economy rooms on the ground floor also, for which they would ask 700 Rs. but i think you can bargain for it also :)

My room was basic, had attached toilet with hot water, spacious and clean. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. There were mosquitoes in the room but one of the staffs, JC, gave me two liquid mosquito destroyers that helped me to have good sleep. There was a balcony in front of the room but not so private as anyone could walk in. However, my room (108) was at the corner so I did have some privacy. When I checked in, there were people in the other rooms on the same floor, but next day they shifted to the 2nd floor and the whole floor was empty :)

Initially I wanted to stay in hotel Grandsea, but when I reached kovalam, I found that the hotel is a bit far from the beach and uphill. So, I started searching for hotels near the beach which have clean, spacious and sea facing rooms. I checked few hotels but didn't like them due to darkness and lack of cleanliness. Finally, I selected Sea flower beach resort which is just on the beach and the closest to light house road.

I really loved to be in sea flower beach resort. Every night the Arabic Ocean used to sing lullaby for me and I used to get up in the morning hearing sound of the ocean. It was a heavenly experience I must say, that is why I always prefer to stay on the beach.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are brighter; and also ask for corner rooms. If you choose Non AC room on first flo...

As I had taken a cheap non- beach hotel on my last trip to Kovalam (a week earlier), so this time I was willing to shell out a few extra bucks for a beach side hotel. After checking various options for an hour, I finally decided on Sea Flower Hotel at the end of the Lighthouse Beach. I spent 2 nights in a ground floor room. Rooms were clean and large and staff was very friendly. The hotel being at the end of the beach doesn’t offer the best ocean view but it compensates through its quiet surroundings not frequented by hawkers and tourists. In short, if you are keen to stay at a cheap beachside hotel, Sea Flower is a “must consider" option.

Room Tip: If you really want a good ocean view, spend a little more and opt for a sea facing room on the first...

Fantastic value, stayed the first night at another hotel, paid 3 times more than i paid at Sea flower and i found i had a better experience at the sea flower.
Located on the southern end of light house beach, the position of the hotel catches the sea breeze better than any other restaurant on the beach front which make a difference when you have been out in the sun all day. This is a budget hotel so don't expect the cleanest rooms or a comfortable bed. Though the service is great and the position is ideal.

Very clean hotel with friendly staff. Stayed on 2nd floor in room 212. Great views of Lighthouse beach and situated at end of beach so a quiet beautiful location with easy access to all the Kovalam has to offer.

Room didnt have a fridge, but staff were happy to put one in our room at an extra cost

Staff were friendly but had to be asked to clean the room and replace toilet rolls - not a huge problem though as lif is pretty relaxed out there.

Stayed at 3 hotels in Kovalam during our vist and this was the only one that promised and delivered hot water - each room has it's own little water heater that is simply operated by a switch

Had to leave hotel to catch our flights at 1am - staff said they would be happy to wake us and order taxi.... but turned out we had to wake them. Taxi driver had been ringing bell for 30 mins with no reply. We nearly missed our flight.

If we go back to Kovalam, i would definitely stay here again

Stayed two nights mid January 2011. Lovely position right on the beach near the lighthouse, only the sound of the surf and birds at night. Sadly the staff are a fairly useless, I had to make our own beds on the first night as the assistant manager had "forgotten" and the only sheet he had was out of storage and smelt a bit mildewy. He promised to replace the bedding the next day, but it never happened. No hot water, not a problem as we prefer cold showers in this climate, but if it is important to you it would be an issue. To cap it all they added the 15% tax at the end even though I had confirmed the total price on booking. A shame as it could be a really nice place. At the price there are better in Kovalam.
