Food, and overall layout
Rooms were cramped and low ceilings clautsrophobic. Club rooms are better
the whole hotel sp terrace restaurant with infiniti pool
traditional dance at the dinner , could have been better
The food was awesome! Great place for a weekend trip! But bit expensive!
The warm smiles and professional service. Good facilities and great food.
the rooms seemed a little run down. our room definitely needed repainting.
The facilities like pool, natur, beach. Service in the restaurant.
WiFi not included. Extra bed not in pace at the time for check in.
All staff were outstanding in helping you in everyway. Treated like royalty. Not cheap place to stay but worth every ruppee
good hotel good location good food
The location was excellent. the view from the bedroom balcony (sea view) was exquisite. The food especially the sea food was very good.
no drinks was served in the beach restaurant , however they brought from the restaurant upstairs . the prices for drinks was unreasonable.
the buggy staff was wonderful. really friendly and helpful bunch of guys and they were always quick to pick me up and take me where I needed to go on the grounds.
waitstaff during dinner and lunch buffet could have been more attentive. I waited far too long to simply get a water refill and getting my bill also took too long. perhaps it was because I was a solo traveler but still that's not an excuse.
swimming pool, gym, location, helpful personell
expensive (at booking.com the price was initially lower than it appeared to be), dirty and small private beach, mosquitos, poor buffets (almost no seafood and international cousine but many things are spicy and specifically Indian), poor kids' entertainment
Location, staff very courteous.
Wi fi wasn't complimentary even in a club room.
Beach- good for a swim View from the room Staff /Service was excellent Raju from reception provided excellent service Close to tourist sites
Private Beach very small & lots of fisherman Sea view rooms had a damp smell
Food and bathroom
The entire resort was excellent, I loved the ambience and facilities, the prompt response and the staff were extremely nice
I guess I came at the wrong time as it was raining and I didn't get to enjoy the beautiful scenario as much, I would choose a better climate to visit the next time
The Club Rooms and the view from there is outstanding, if you are planning to stay at Leela you must ask for CLUB ROOMS, the staff at front office was amazing especially and particularly ARUN ! Great Property!!
Wifi Should be complimentary and Happy Hours must be extended throughout the day to Club Guests
Ok location and nice chinese restaurant
Having had an amazing stay at Leela Goa we were expecting the same type of experience but were bitterly disapointed: 1)Rooms are a bit old and we got a lot of mosquitoes as doors dońt shut properly and dońt have nets 2) pool area is a bit small and beach part is very tiny and not so nice 3) service was terrible as we were promised babysitting services in the evening and did not get it, waited 2hours to get a yougourt for our child, were not even able to get mashed patatoes for our kod as was not "on the menu", never got our terrasse light repaires or the outdoors mosquitoe repellent we were promised... And other small things I won't mention. We were told that "we will make it up to you" bit no gesture was made. This was not up to the Leela standard and would recommend to go to Taj or other luxury resorts in Kovalam instead
Welcome , swimming pool,
Lot of mosquito which discourage us to go to the open bar and hotel in the evening really needs to do something about it
Inefficient Staff, Poor service, exorbitant restaurant prices, lack of cabs and long wait time to transport to main lobby.
The location is still fabulous!
Check in and check out that took FOREVER while being cooked in AC-less area!, roach infested rooms, run down bathrooms and the place generally looking aged, harassment by vendors in so called "private" beach, general feeling of insecurity in the sea facing cottages, and .... well the old charm is simply not there. Next time, we will check out other resorts nearby.
Swimming pool doesn't have change room nearby// health club not adequate//lack of steam bath/Jacukzi// house keeping staff not alert//
Amazing location, friendly staff, excellent food & facilities. Everything was perfect.
Leela property is very good though there is hardly any beach and that was disappointing. Staff were very good except the one person who was there at the checkout as he did not adjust the advance which even after a month I am not aware if it has been refunded back to my card or not
Property is very good. Room was excellent with a great view. Staff was very good. I was well received at the airport and then at the hotel check in was very easy and comfortable thanks to Ms Athira. Akhil made sure I was very comfortable in the restaurant and George served some very good mojitos at the pool. All in all it was a great holiday and I look forward to going back again
Every one very respective & smiles safe, secure & compliments cost are genuine I will keep on refer everyone
Surrounding hotels inside plot need to put more lights & luminous for safe /decoration purposes
The hotel is located in one of the best spots in Kovalam, near Trivandrum, Kerala. Nice weather - not cold, not overly warm Generally warm and friendly staff
We were made to sit for nearly half an hour while they took ID cards of me, my wife and even demanded one from our daughter. Isnt the ID of one person enough? What if my wife was not carrying her ID? Mildly irritating way to start. Doors, knobs etc were worn out and were old in our room Room size and toilet size was just okay / comfortable. When you consider the fact that this is The Leela and that you are paying a premium, the size, quietness and comfort level is not what it should be. The so called private beach had local people coming in for fishing and smoking between the rocks. There is a Mosque a little away from the hotel. I respect all places of worships. But there is is no logical reason for it on a beach. I feel that the Mosque may have been built by the nearby business complex owners so that the Government will not touch their probably illegal construction, close to the sea. Anyway, mildly irritating to listen to morning prayer calls on a BEACH RESORT The uniforms of many staff members looked unclean and sweaty. Okay, I understand people sweat. But a premium hotel operating in a somewhat warm country should provide fresh dress to their staff twice or thrice a day.
Facilities were excellent and the location was good, the room was advertised as being 435m but was actually only 45sqm - a bit different!!
Drinks prices absolutely ridiculous, a coke was 250 when outside the hotel was 20!! Lack of choice for food, fresh fish not readily available despite being next to the sea, ended up having pizza which was nice but not what you would expect to have to order at a five star hotel
