Basic Hotel close to the beach and restaurants

Posted Jan 6, 2017
Pros: Clean Friendly and very helpful throughout our stay.
Cons: Dining room could do with a bit of redecoration and extra lighting.
Location: Excellent location near to the beach with plenty of taxis to lots of sightseeing at very reasonable prices.
The hotel was basic but very clean and tidy. Clean sheets and towels every day. Room cleaned every day. Bed very comfortable and Air Con and Fan in every room. Staff very friendly and helpful when my husband fell ill one night. Would recommend to anyone wanting just basic hotel room. Breakfast very good but dining room a bit dingy. It is situated in the mainly Indian part of Lighthouse Beach and although very busy with Indian tourists at Christmas and New Year absolutely no problems. Excellent service by Hotel staff.

Worst hotel I've stayed in

Posted Dec 30, 2016 on Hotels
One of the worst hotels I've stayed in. Cramped room, outdated furniture,dirty linens. No wi-fi in the room and lack of car parking space. Only one word for this hotel -- AVOID

Comfortable Hotel near to the amenities.

Posted Mar 20, 2016
Pros: Near the amenities, pleasant staff.
Cons: The pool itself was ok but the steps to it could do with tidying up. The kitchen bins were near the steps which wasn't very nice to walk past.
Location: Near the amenities and beach. Lots of restaurants. Buses nearby to Trivandrum although up a hill to catch it.
Hotel staff welcoming and helpful. Pool area and approach needed a bit more looking after but overall a good stay. The food was very good and reasonable.

Convenient, close to beach and restaurants

Posted Jan 13, 2014
Pros: Location and very pleasant staff
Cons: The pool
Whilst the hotel was typical of Indian standards we were unable to use the pool as it was so dirty.

The hotel is currently under construction. Currently, no lift. If you have aged persons and a third floor room, you are in soup! Otherwise, hotel stuffs are nice and the room cleanliness is OK . Toilet is nice and clean and that's why I liked this hotel. Location wise is also very close to the beach.

Marine Palace Hotel in Kovalam for all the noise

Posted Feb 24, 2012 on Hotels
Main problem was lack of hot water most of the time, though in the hot climate that was less of a difficulty. The central situation makes it vary noisy, at least in the room where I was, facing the busy road, and the temple, with a lot of music, singing and drumming being broadcast by loudspeakers, starting early morning. My last night was to be a special festival there, and the noise was to go on all night, but forftunately I left at 2 am. for my flight.
