Fantastic Location

Posted 21-Feb-2014
Pros: Great Location, Pool and Beach.
Cons: Breakfast and Breakfast area.
Location: Lots of eating places, money change, internet and shops nearby. On the Beach.
Because the location is great and they are busy the owners/Manger rest on their laurels to a degree. Downstairs Restaurant is very nice. Upstairs where the meagre breakfast is served needs a daily clean. Floor is filthy, bird droppings and cigarette ends, dirty table cloths. Grumpy old man with a couple of lads bring up ready cooked toast (cold) every day a bowl of hard boiled eggs. 1 Jug juice. Bananas. For Europeans that's it. Some Indian Rice dishes (cold). A little machine gives out white sweet coffee. No fresh Coffee or urn of hot water for tea. We took our own cereal and Milk up. Anything extra you pay for. They would be better not doing breakfast if they can not do better. Piles of dirty plates stacked at the top of the stairs. They did change our room after a few days as we never had hot water. Reception staff were very willing to help. Could do with more beds around the pool area.

Great Location

Posted 17-Feb-2014 on Hotels.com
Location of this hotel was perfect right on the beach front in the middle of the lighthouse beach. When we arrived there was a slight delaying getting into our rooms but the staff did do the best they could to accommodate us. Jeevan is the only liscenced place to sell alcoholic beverages so if people wanting that much needed beer tend to head down here. The bathrooms weren't great and had to wait till around 9 if you wanted a shower that wasn't cold.

rooms were dirty had to ask for the toilet to be disinfected on arrival,i ask the maid twice to clean the room but it never was.breakfast menu was 3 dishes of indian food or fruit juice hard boiled eggs toast jam and bananas every day the same.coffee out of a machine had lots of sugar in it, one lady had hot water and coffee out of a jar so as to not have the sugar and on asking for some milk was told no chance (those words). i must add that the restaurant on the bottom deck which was open to the public was really well run and the food and service was excellent.but i wont be returning to this hotel but will eat in the downstairs restautant.

Just the job for a relaxing holiday

Posted 11-Jan-2014
Pros: The location, the staff and excellent food.
Cons: Things can always be improved but as this hotel is making great strides to upgrade I will reserve comments until after my next visit.
Location: Located right on the beach, excellent eating places and good shops
First time at the Jeevan Beach resort but have been to Kovalam several times. This hotel may be rated lower than some in this area but the staff were 5 star in their kindness and friendly nature. It is currently undergoing upgrading but this takes time and money but as far as a holiday hotel in Kerala this is a great place to stay.

location is excellent .Right on the beach.

Pros: location
Cons: room services needs improvement.
Had a enjoyable stay for 3 nights with family. Food in the restaurant is expensive. Swimming pool is a small one and not useful. Overall good place to enjoy vacation with family and friends.

Poor value for the money. The Hotels.com voucher/receipt said ther was TV & fridge yet there was none. To get these 2 facilities I had to upgrade so cost was around A$90/night. This resort was not worth that amount. Same mediocre brekky each morning. Room was not cleaned for entire 4 days of my stay. There was problem with filter so swimming pool was murky green for most of my stay. Sorry but could not recommend especially at such high rates.

Pros: Large bathroom / wetroom, location on beach, patio outside room.
Cons: Other guests!
Location: Central for eating, shops, taxis, right on beach.
Stunning location, right on the beach, near all the restaurants and amenities. Staff very helpful. Pool very clean and inviting. Would have liked more hanging space for clothes. Bathroom/wetroom ideal, and large, ideal for Indian holidays. Would recommend.
