Peaceful poolside rooms with excellent food!
Highly recommended. Manager was very flexible and switched us to a downstairs room when we requested. Bottled water on request. Restaurant had excellent food which would be brought to our room if we desired. The chef even baked us a surprise cake to have with dinner on our wedding anniversary!

Excellent Ayurvedic treatments, caring staff
The health treatments were just what I needed during a difficult time. I lost both of my parents in the last few months and the staff at Ideal were so gentle and kind. I felt so nurtured and safe there. Just be sure to go to bed early on Saturday as the nearby temple gets going at 6:00 Sunday mornings and goes until noon!

Nice Hotel
I really enjoyed my time at Ideal Resort. It was relaxing with really good food and a good pool. I didn't try one of the massages nor was I on the Ayurvedic cleanse so I can't comment on those aspects. The bed was comfy and fairly firm. Shower was good, once I found out how to get hot water out of it. Given the ongoing money issues here, there are two ATMs within a couple of minutes walking distance which were always stocked with notes. Very helpful at the moment.

Good value resort
No need to go there for Ayuverdic treatment; you can simply go for a quiet and restful place to stay and to unwind. 20 minutes tuk-tuk ride from Kovalam beach/restaurants, and 5 -8 minutes walk to Chowara beach Only downside was being asked to smoke away from the pool area because other guests 'thought we're here to get healthy', even though it's an open area and you may be 20 metres away from anyone else! So be prepared to put up with the holier-than-thou attitudes of the 'worried well' from various parts of Europe. All in all, though, I'd recommend this place for a quiet holiday.

A former nice resort ruined by cheap tourists
According to the other reviews the resort wasn't so bad. Well, now it is. I booked the best room and got and outdated one half facing the pool and half facing a wall, so it was quite dark. At 6am in the morning hotel staff started moving furniture so I wasn't able to sleep. At 7am kids started using the pool with their clothes on. It seemed like they were washing it in there. The water is accordingly dirty. I asked to change the room to another one not close to the pool even though it doesn't have AC. The manager tried to help, but he was also limited by the bad resort he's managing. The new room was also noisy from 7:30am on. For the third night the manager offered to move me to another hotel. I declined and found one myself. He refunded me part of what I paid. Expedia didn't care about any of this and didn't give me a refund. I just got some self-loving text blocks back from them. Last time I used them.

My favourite hotel
My second visit to this hotel and not my last You don't go to Ideal for 5 star facilities but go for 5 star service, most pleasant atmosphere and tranquillity. Intimate hotel where every guest is important . All the staff from the Manager Shamer to Chef Binu to the security -seem to be hand picked . Great food , excellent therapist great hotel. Cannot wait for my next visit
