My wife and I stayed at the Old Lighthouse Hotel for a few days in December and January 2015. We found it a very comfortable with good food with pleasant and helpful staff. I found it particularly enjoyable to have a cold beer, even a Kingfisher, which can be a rare experience in Kerala.

You have to try this hotel! It is very, very good with nice staff! The beach is too dangerous for swimming, however the pool more than makes up for it. And as many people have written before. Old Lighthouse is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to your friends. Thank you very much for making my... More
