Went to Kovalam in Dec (28, 29) 2011 as year end vacation with family (wife & kid) from Bangalore and stayed in Jeevan Beach Resort for 2 nights. During booking time from Bangalore, we had asked for Non AC rooms with sea view. We even insisted on paying booking amount, but Mr. James (the manager) said he doesn't need advance payment and he would keep the booking, based on email confirmation. I was surprised & happy as Dec is the peak season and none of the other hotels promised rooms without partial or full booking amount. On reaching the hotel, our room was not ready (around 12:30pm), but Mr. James was extremely nice and asked the house-keeping to get our rooms ready promptly. We found the rooms were really good (as they were deluxe rooms). Rooms were big, the bed was a little small for the 3 of us (wife, kid and myself), bathrooms were big and very clean. The best was the balcony and the view from there, simple superb! Staff was quite friendly and Mr. Renjith at the reception was extremely responsive and helpful. Our room fan had a problem, he ensured that it got repaired by the Electrician by evening. We had lunch the first day at Cafe De La Mar (at the resort), we ordered for Prawns biriyani (it has pineapple pieces in it!), beef fry, chicken noodles. Didn't find the taste that great, was strictly average, though the quantity was quite generous. The best part is, this restuarant (amongst the few others) serves various kinds of beer and not just KF. Having a chilled beer and then going into the sea for a dip was heavenly! One irritation was- there is no parking of the hotel or in this part of the beach (lighthouse beach). Had to park in Hawah Beach parking area and a good 10 mins walk from the resort. But then, none of the resorts in lighthouse beach has their own parking, so can't call this as a fault!

Overall, a great place to stay and would definitely visit this resort again, when I am travelling to Kovalam in future!

For foreigners dharmshala is Indian religious places which gives you free stay

We booked this beach resort after seeing rating on tripadvisor.

Pro

1. Good location, its just in front of sea

Cons

1. You won't get what you are promised. I booked sea facing rooms on first floor two months earlier, I was surprised to find that i was given two non sea facing rooms on ground floor when i reached at 1 p.m. I end up fighting with manager for three hours and he gave finally sea view room at 6p.m as he was doing some favour.

2. Zero in cleaniness, filthy bathrooms, broken taps

3.Room service, i should give negative marks- We order sandwich and tea. Tea came 20 minutes earlier then sandwich :), of course we finished the tea before sandwich, otherwise it tea was getting cold (since it was not in kettle, only on loose cups).We went to reception, but order of sandwich was not canceled. In end we returned sandwich and even payed for it !!!!!!!!..is any traveler listening.

Its more of a dhramshala (religious indian places, which give you free stay), every night i used to go outside to get myself drinking water

4. I don;t know how how its restaurant is rated high. You need to have one hour to wait for food.
And yes if you are an indian, they will treat you secondary (of coz outside nationals pay them good tip)...so be prepared..to get a feeling of being inferior in your own country :)
