We had a pleasant stay at Soma Palmshore. Hotel is located at Light House beach, with its own private beach. Commutation becomes easier as it is very close to Trivandrum Railway Station. Its location near light house beach is overwhelming as you can have calm surroundings and enjoy your stay better. Hotel's restaurant is good and overall it was a lovely holiday at Soma Palmshore. I would recommend this hotel as value for money.
Turtle is not on the beach. It is a 5 min walk. The staff is friendy, the food is excellent. They claim to have a meditteranean restuarant that doesnt have falafel. Their WiFi is terrible (0.2Mb/sec). The toilet flush is weak and they do not provide hair conditioner. Massage was excellent, but they dont have services like hair removal they advertise.
The rooms are large and beautiful. My experience was mixed Lots of litter on Kovalam beach. Would not visit again.
We booked for 5 day's, I wish we could have booked for longer, the whole experience was so relaxing. Our cottage had a sea view so we fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the ocean. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Parveen, the housekeeping supervisor, who would check daily that everything was okay and sort out the smallest problem straightaway.
