We came to Trinco for work and stayed at this hotel for two nights. The room was spacious with a large bed, AC, good TV, small fridge and a kettle to make tea/coffee. The bathroom was also spacious with separate shower and nice towels. Everything was clean. There was WiFi but the internet was too slow to use. We had a private balcony with chairs from which we could see, hear and smell the sea. The hotel has its own small pool which is suitable for swimming. It's well maintained and not full of chlorine like other pools - we really enjoyed it. As it was the off season, no swimming in the sea was possible. The beach was a little bit disappointing, which however is not the hotel's fault! Three plots north there is a pack of dogs which come running after you - no beach to walk alone. Also, this year, due to covid and no tourists being around, the beach was not cleaned (plastics washed ashore from the sea). I have been to Nilaveli many times and I assume this will change again once the tourists are back. However, sitting on the balcony we got the full pleasant "beach feeling". We definitely will come back.

My wife and I spent Christmas at Cardamom and enjoyed every moment of it (3 nights). The rooms were fantastic, very interestingly the bath tub is in the room (not toilet) which adds a bit of uniqueness to it. The room is spacious and bed is comfy. The provided amenities in the room were great as well. The beach is clean and very nice (we noticed a bit of garbage in an adjoining property though), the best part of this is that the beach is really close to the hotel. The staff were absolutely fantastic and very accommodative. We had really good wifi (both signal & speed) and a ecstatic view from our room (Room 310). This combined with the 'lazy' chair they have on the balcony, you are in for a hell of a relaxing time. A/C is very important to me, I normally have the A/c on the lowest possible setting and have noticed that the A/C in these hotels are not good, which is in contrast to this place, the a/c was working perfectly and you do need it since its a bit hot in Trinco. Finding the hotel is easy and safe parking is available. The room and hotel are clean, immaculate and maintained well. At the same time, i do need to mention a few areas of improvement. Ofcourse, my views could be subjective but none-the-less, I should mention the same as they are not big issues and can easily be addressed. When I visit Cardamon again, I hope to see these addressed! - The food is really expensive and is fairly ordinary (perhaps borderline, not tasty). We were on BB basis so it didnt affect us much since we ate out most of the time while exploring the area. - They have a good big screen tv, but they are currently facing issues with teh tv provider, so unless you plan to hook your laptop to the tv, it will just be there as an ornament - Whilst there was hot water available (little better than warm water though), the pressure was not good at all. - No cupboard, baggage rack and an extra chair in the room. I would highly suggest that the rooms have a cupboard, a baggage rack and an extra chair in the room. They did manage to orgnaise a baggage rack but it would be better if they could provide a wardrobe as well (especially for those of us who stay for extended periods of time. - They lack a website, which is really important as it will showcase the hotel. Would I recommend this place? Most definitely yes! Will I visit again? Most definitely yes! I would like to thank the following people for making our stay memorable; The Reservation Manager, Dexma The General Manager, Shashi The front office Manager, Manoj The front office executive, Kumaran Our waiters, Vidu & Dinesh The pool attendant, sachi Housekeeping, (I cant remember the names of the gentleman and lady who cleaned our room) Maintenance / Porters (again, I cant remember the names of the three gentlemen who took care of our maintenance issues and luggage handling)

Its overall a nice hotel and the facilities were nice. Rooms were adequate which kept us quite comfortable. The beach was right next to the facility and we all enjoyed good sea baths and making sand castles. However, they need to attend to the finer details which is quite important in this business. Main area to improve was the food. Breakfast was just okay, as we didnt see any variety throughout our entire stay (3 nights). We requested for sandwiches around 3pm which they were unable to deliver instead gave us some french fries. Since the hotel is located a fair distance from restaurants, it is seen as a negative. Staff were friendly and humble. It will be better if the management interacts with their guests a bit which will give them an idea how to improve this facility.

Room Tip: Suite rooms face the beach. If not insist on the rooms in the corner which has a better view...
