It is better than a budget/average hotel definitely. The swimming pool is nice. The rooms (we stayed in a deluxe AC room) are pretty basic with good AC. The bathroom size was ok but not very good – needs better maintenance; the drain in the shower area was getting chocked; the commode water pipe was leaking; lots of ants in the bathroom. The balcony was pretty big with a table and 2 chairs – but no sea view in this hotel – at the best you can get the swimming pool view.
Major issue with the rooms is that there’s no furniture apart from the bed, a basic wardrobe and big refrigerator. At least 1 table and 2/3 chairs or a sofa is required.
Do not go for the breakfast option as it’s horrible. You can just walk to the other nearby hotel restaurants for breakfast/lunch/dinner.
The Hotel location is very good (comparing with ‘no sea view’ other hotels in the area). It’s just a min walk from the Kovalam beach i.e. on the slope (road) of the beach.
The Hotel reception people and Manager are very nice. Sunil (Manager) is a very nice person and the lady too. Madhab, the bell boy doing any kind of odd jobs is also a very nice person. But do not book transportation from them. They arranged airport drop for Rs.800. I didn't take it and got a cab (which picked me from the hotel) from Uber for just Rs.275.
Overall, if you are not looking for an expensive sea front (sea view) hotel, then Jasmine Palace is a good option.
