“Loved everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2009

We stayed 4 nights at The Beach Hotel in Kovalam - their second, recently opened hotel (the 'older' no-AC hotel is in the same building as the German Bakery), at 4.000 INR incl. breakfast for a double room.
Fair enough, we were easy to impress after a coackroach-infested housebout trip....but this hotel really is a gem: bedroom and bathroom are very clean, bright, modern and tastefully furnished, beds are very comfortable. The balcony is spacious and provides great views of the ocean and the 'beach promenade'. Breakfast is made to order from a small menu. The staff is super friendly and helpful.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2009

This is a really lovely place to stay. It hadn't been open long when we stayed, and was in immaculate condition. Rooms are spacious, spotless, lovely decor, good showers. Nice bedlinen and towels, and little details like interesting ornaments and soap provided that I wouldn't necessarily expect in a place in this price bracket. Lovely balcony seating area out the front, looking out towards the sea. The restaurant upstairs is fantastic - great breakasts, good for lunch and dinner too, - a really varied menu with Keralan dishes and European style stuff too, we found plenty of options for kids. The guys who run the rooms were friendly and helpful, and offer a good and inexpensive laundry service. Fantastic location, right on the sea front, with shops, sunloungers, restaurants all just outside.

Very small downside of the location is that when we were there the waves were huge and noisy at night!! Not noisy enough to keep us awake, but may be a problem for light sleepers. And am not sure if the waves are as big all year round as they were when we were there. (Could always take some ear-plugs!). Also, be aware that there is no road down to this end of the beach, you have to walk (about 5-10 minutes), but there is a pretty good walkway all the way along, fine for a buggy. Just don't be surprised though when your airport taxi drops you off some distance away and says ok, get out and walk!! We pre-booked a taxi from the airport through The Beach Hotel and were very glad we did - the airport was SO busy, the taxi was a fair price, and the driver pulled our suitcase all the way along the beachfront for us.

This place far surpassed our expectations. It's a really lovely and convenient place to stay. Highly recommended!
