Great location

Posted Mar 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
I have been here before, so I like the location, the room is always clean, but there is never ant hot water, the breakfast there is everything you would want / wifi always works in reception area. The only down side would be, for some it is a long hill to climb to get back to Hotel . The staff is always helpful, I would go back.

Good hotel

Posted May 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great pool , beach access and food. Mediocre parking space and hotel entrance gate, Entering/ exiting the hotel premise is a pain. Will be lucky if able to park your vehicle properly.

Excellent view with comfortable stay

Posted May 10, 2013
Pros: Ayurvedic Spa, Food & View from the room
Cons: Amenities within the room
Location: 20 minutes ride from Trivandrum Railway Station and closely placed on Light House Beach road
We had a pleasant stay at Soma Palmshore. Hotel is located at Light House beach, with its own private beach. Commutation becomes easier as it is very close to Trivandrum Railway Station. Its location near light house beach is overwhelming as you can have calm surroundings and enjoy your stay better. Hotel's restaurant is good and overall it was a lovely holiday at Soma Palmshore. I would recommend this hotel as value for money.

A lovely little hotel with its own private beach

Posted Feb 16, 2013
Pros: Helpfulness of staff. The pool, gardens and private beach
Location: Really good locationi within easy walking distance of the main beach and restaurants.
I stayed at the Soma Palmshore for 1 night at the end of a two week tour of Kerala and after lots of travelling it was really good to find somewhere so peacefull and set in such beautiful surroundings.. I was pleasantly surprised by the helpfulness of the staff. The room was a little small but the balcony was a good size with a view of the pool and private beach. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the main beach and restaurants. A newspaper is put under the door in the morning and breakfast was very good.

Perfect for lazy days

Posted Jan 17, 2013
Pros: Position
Cons: Food
Location: Excellent
Position of the hotel would be the best in Kovalum! We stayed in room 415 which was separated from the main building in a bungalow group of 5 rooms. Brilliant position and wonderful to sit on the verandah and watch the surf roll in. Staff were friendly. Food was OK. Breakfast along the main shopping district is much better. Good value for money!

The whole hotel is mismanaged. there is no responsible person to see that everything is in order. The chef is terrible. Bathrooms, towels, rooms, bed sheets etc are not at al clean.

stay at soma palshore

Posted Jul 24, 2012
Pros: location, swimming pool, ambience, and front office
Cons: house keeping and only house keeping.
located in a cool and romantic place... stay was really confortable and soothing. but the housekeeping staff were just terrible.. there was not water supply in the rooms atleast couple of hours before my check out... even though reception guys were co-ordinating to re-instate water supply, the housekeeping wasn't even aware about the water supply failure... in turn i had to check out even without taking a bath..

Nice hotel,"cottage" overpriced

Posted Jun 3, 2012
Pros: Nice view, private beach
Cons: "Cottage" not as described, smelly bathroom, weak internet
Location: On hilltop above quiet beach
Good:-- Overall, ok hotel with nice view and private beach, Bad -- We booked a cottage on Expedia at the highest price listed and a deluxe room as well for our family. On hotel's website, it describes two cottages with a living room area, but we were given a regular room. When I talked to the manager, he said that we were in a "Kerala" cottage which was a row of 5 hotel rooms with no living area and did not exist in their website description. Nice location but disappointed that we didn't get what we paid for, not as described. Weak/nonexistent wireless signal in room. Bathroom had a strong smell..
