Stayed here for a couple of nights. The place is well located with a host of eateries and other attractions nearby. There is nothing much to write about the hotel though. It leaves a lot to be desired for sure. Everything from the beds, toilets and cleanliness is below par. The only face saving is the greenery surrounding the place... More

Location is good but that's it. You can get it cheap so it's good for young travelers but there are much nicer places nearby on the main roads. The concept of home stay varies but in this case there is a low class hotel on the back of a home. This is not a quaint B&B.

We had a variety of problems with our stay at El Paradiso. Initially, they wanted to give us a second floor room but in spite of the fact that we requested a ground floor room, they wanted to take us to a second floor room. Also disappointing was the fact that there were no facilities for our driver and his... More

A great reasonably priced guesthouse. The owners were most helpful and provided us with information on how to walk to places we were interested in. If you don't like sweet food just remember to say "no sugar" as fruit salad was a tad too sweet.

Good stay in Thekkady. Large clean rooms, with balconies to sit and read. Bathrooms had hot water and nice home-cooked breakfast available in communal downstairs area. Family are friendly with good information on tours. Thank you for our stay.

This is a very nice and clean homestay where you feel right away 'at home'. The family is very friendly and they serve you very good breakfast in the morning (and let you try the local food if you like). Perfect time here!

We had had some accommodation problems in Munnar and El Paradiso was just as the name says for us, clean comfortable, good rooms with ensuites, well situated and a welcoming helpful host who could arrange trips for us. I'd have no hesitation recommending this, except that they mentioned that they are opening a new hotel near the Periyar wildlife sanctuary... More

We enjoyed our stay at El Paradiso, with the friendly family hosts. Unlike other homestays we stayed in during our trip to Kerala, dinner was not included in the price here (and was not usually served), but this gave us the chance to go out and sample some local cuisine. On one evening we did have a cooking demonstration at... More

We received a welcome tea on our arrival at around 2pm. The owner, Babu, sat with us and asked about our journey so far and plans for our stay Kumilly. He also gave us information of what was available. We let him know that we wanted to visit the national park, do a light trek and catch a Kathakali performance.... More
