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.
