Stayed here with the family for two days. The property is very well kept and clean. The hotel has its own private beach which is very clean and well maintained. The rooms were clean and cozy with all amenities. The staff was very cordial and well spoken. Food can be an issue but that is a minor point. The resort...

Samudra is owned by Kerala Tourism Development Corporation, the government of Kerala institution. Though its a government run property, the service is good and the location is one of the best in Kovalam. It has direct access to the beach also.

This hotel has an excellent sea view . But the whole hotel stinks right from reception to room. Breakfast was good but lunch was very bad . Can stay only for the view . Have so many good options near this hotel for this price.

No in room information means you are then left to wonder about meal timings, hotel activities which to be honest equate to nothing. The swimming...
