We stayed 4 days at marina guesthouse in Kovalam, we were in the bottom floor and the room was clean and spacious. This is a calm place at only 20 meters from the beach. The owner is a cool guy and you can speak easily with him.

We highly recomend this place, it is very clean, well located, 10 seconds from the beach but a little hidden behind the front street so you are not completely exposed to passages. Everything you need is near by. The atmosphere is calm and happy. You can get a room for a good price. The hosts are very nice and welcoming....

We stayed here for about ten days, and there are some notable advantages. It is not on the sea front, but only a very short distance behind and in the centre area,slightly towards the lighthouse end (beside Santana restaurant).

“There're almost twelve rooms, ground floor, first and the second. The second floor rooms might be hot, in case you've booked a room without air conditioning. So ground and first floor preferred.”
