The check in/check out procedure was slow as the reception staff lacked confidence. The room furniture as well as in the restaurant need special attention.

One of the best hotel by far i have visited in Kovalam. They have their beach and also they have very spacious rooms. All the rooms are beach facing and right on the beach. The service is very good and also the property.

Thanks for the review. Food served in our restaurant is taxable ( 20.5% on food rates). Even Taxi charges are taxable. hence it feels bit costly when compared with local restaurants or taxi's. We look forward your next visit to stay with us. Regards. MANAGER More

We deeply regret for the inconvenience caused to you. It was very unfortunate that you had such experience. We do periodically pest control in all rooms. Regarding the delay in service, on those days all rooms were almost full. we have noted your concern and had initiated corrective action so that such incidents do not happen. Regards MANAGER More
