We were comfortable and relaxed at Shirley's beach hotel. It is very simple, with cold showers only, but the service was personal and polite. The space was very clean and there was a fan to cool us down if we wanted it. We had a simple but welcome breakfast delivered to our balcony, from where we could look out over...

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The rooms were large enough. The service was also very prompt. The boys who attend the guests for room service were too helpful. I can remember that on one night we arrived late from the sightseeing tour and all nearby restaurants were closed. The boys came as near ones and they offered...

This was our first visit to Kerala and picked Shirley’s Beach resort based on previous reviews. We were not disappointed as the accommodation was clean and very well presented. We were met at the airport by Shirley herself which shows how much this family wants to please its clients and make them most welcome. I had contacted the hotel prior...

When we stayed, the owner was away and the place was a mess. Rooms were basic; missing soap in the bathroom and some lightbulbs; but this we expected. Our room was also incredibly noisy since facing the street; we were woken 3-4 times during the night. What was hugely disappointing and frustrating was the way we were treated by the...

This hotel is good and clean, the rooms are big and convenient and has air condition. The breakfast was nice and brought up for us to the room. On the other side the price of the room was high, above 50 USD and the location is not on the beach. So I would say that you can find chipper hotels...

Spent 2 weeks here over Xmas 2012 and new year. Personally collected by Shirley in the middle of the night and taken to the hotel.

We stayed here 5 nights and was very pleased with the quality of the room and the helpfulness of Shirley and her staff. The room was bright, airy, and clean with a nice balcony. The location was pretty close to perfect, just a short walk from Lighthouse Beach. Shirley picked us up at the airport personally, recommended good places to...

We stayed here a total of 3 weeks purely because we felt so comfortable and safe here due to the friendliness and great service from Shirley, her son and her staff. They personally came to pick us up from the airport which was a nice touch. Shirley has two places, one closer to the beach and one a bit further...

I was doing my first solo travel in 2011 and the trip to Kovalam and the hotel was very stressful. As soon as I arrived Shirley sensed my unease and worries and from then on she literally took me under her wing! She looked after me so well, kept checking up on me to make sure I was okay and...
