Great location but no understanding of maintenance
Location is great with nice views from the higher floors
When I arrive I was given a room without a view even though I booked one with a view When I complaint I was taken to a room with a view The blind in my room did not work I asked them to fix it which was doen by the vening all except the one in the bath room. The aircon/ AC did not work I reported it the morning when I left and that evening it was still not working. I reported it again and it was fixed. The furniture is quite weird. The suite had a bed and a small dresser (very low with no chair) in a rather large room. The other room had a dining room hight table with no chairs only two corner coaches with plastic upholstry. The hotel is in need of a coat of paint and somebody should train the staff to focus on detail.

Great hotel operated by 5 star friendly staff
Great location for those who like extraordinary scenery, super friendly staff who support you all the way through, mild taste food as compared to most of the major cities in India.
We live in Delhi and spent 3 nights at Turtle On The Beach for holidays. This hotel offers best scenery in Kovalam Beach area (except Leela which is located slightly away from Kovalam Beach). Please have a try climbing up at Sky Suite for the best view. The hotel is not located ‘on the beach’ but in a walking distance from the beach. The only thing you need to consider is a steep slope which you need to climb up when coming back to the hotel. The staffs are super friendly and are ready to offer any support. At the time of our visit, we were offered to take better rooms instead of the lower grade room which we booked. This may not be expected every time however, the readiness to offer the best service feels so nice, especially if you are a visitor from other major cities in India. The hospitality of this hotel is definitely better than those ‘Luxurious’ and ‘Gorgeous’ 5 star hotels. Besides, surfing at Lighthouse Beach is FUN!

The best Stay
1) Sea View from Balcony # 501 2) Hotel Accomodation 3) Friendly Staff
I booked my vacation in this hotel at the last minute. Didn't had enough time to go through the reviews.. So we were more anxious on how this hotel looks like.. Whether it suits the money we paid. When we arrived, we had very good welcome. Next we were accompanied to room by an executive. As soon as we are in the room, our doubts were vanished.. We felt that it was the best room we ever stayed.. Awesome sea view from Balcony.. We enjoyed our stay to maximum extent.. Food is Good. Every time we are in Restaurant we found Chief Chef asking for our experience. He even made few dishes according to our taste.. I will strongly recommend this Hotel to everyone.. I would want to say Very Big ThanQ for the management of this Hotel to make our holidays the best one.. Last but not the least, I made a good decision. :)

Good Ambiance, Nice Interiors,
Well Maintained, Good Ambiance . In Room Dining was horrible, late service with cold food. Onam Sadya was horrible, double charged for poor quality and less dishes.
Nice property, but certain areas need special attention, Like In room dining. Food should be served hot and on time. Customers look forward for quality not discount. When I complained about delay in serving, and cold dishes including soup, I was offered discount. so sad, and at last when the final bill came there was no discount also applied. who is going to complaint at the time of checkout about such matters. Please take extra care to avoid such lapses.
