Pros: Sceneries around the hotel is good . Food is good.
Cons: Need better cooling in the rooms. Need better way for accountability for laundries collection and returns.
Check out is miserable. Tried to charge for laundries for some body else. Did not allow me to leave without paying money for somebody else laundries. Not going to visit this place again.Room A/C is miserable. We took the land cottages for two days.

The resort has a lot to improve.There were issues with bed bugs which was resolved quickly but that shouldn't have happened in the first place. The chairs in my balcony were of inferior quality( stayed in 201) and the phone was not working. My cousin stayed in room 202 the minibar was not stocked and there was an old bed kept in the balcony which was requested to be moved out but was not done. The staffs are very helpful and the restaurant gives clean food and the taste is also OK so no issues there. There is no WiFi in the rooms for accessing the WiFi you have to go to the lobby.

should be better for the price

A fancy resort with a few problems. Best feature is the pool - it's beautiful, fringed by palm trees, and very clean. The food was not as good as I had hoped; I had just been staying in Trivandrum where the food was better. Worst things about this hotel: the staff is constantly trying to get you to order "extras" like food and drinks which shouldn't be extras in the first place. For the exorbitant rates this resort charges, meals and at least water should be included. Also bad: they were doing loud, buzz-saw construction in the cottage right next to mine, well into the night.

A laid back holiday at Poovar

Posted 21-Oct-2014 on Hotels
We stayed in a floating cottage which was an outstanding experience. Location & property is perfect. Seafood was excellent. Service quality is poor. Except for one who made our stay good, rest of all staff looked not trained. Very good outdoor activities like boat rides, beach stay & other garden specific activities.

expensive and not worth it

Posted 27-Dec-2011 on Hotels
i stayed in the floating cottage for a day. The room was ok but there is no hot water. Room service will take 1hr to deliver food or water. The surrounding is not worth the money. The only good is we can feed fish from our room. Udhaya samudrha hotel is very good. We can enjoy the beach and the hotel rooms.
