This is by far one of the best places to stay if you want a beachfront vacation in South India. Awesome rooms, lots of activity, courteous staff and a brilliant ambience. I have been here several times, but this time the F&B service will incredibly slow every time we ordered something - in the restaurant and at room service as...

We travelled from Chennai for just a single day stay and it turned out to be the best decision...this has been a constant recommendation from my parents who visited Fish Cove back in 1982. The hotel has soul and has absolutely wonderful people deployed all across...right from check in to the housekeeping, they were all superb. The F&B outlets are...

It is a good resort for a weekend out. the rooms are very quiet and relaxing. The downside is that there is only one pool in the whole resort and the rooms at the new garden wind make it a long walk to the pool.

Fishermen's cove is a nice resort located near the sea. It's got a nice swimming pool and a tennis court. The only problem is the rooms. They are way too small. Villa's have a really nice view, but they are not very spacious. The food also wasn't up to the mark.
