I booked this on the internet and it was just perfect! We were made very welcome and our room was brilliant, with the BEST shower we have ever had in India and beyond! There is a balcony where you can sit outside, we were on the second floor at the end, lovely room, very clean. We booked all the trips... More

We spent 2 great nights at Maria and Mr Babu's home. They were very helpful for organising the jungle safari, we enjoyed a cooking class and the following delicious meaĺ, and went to visit the new hotel of Mr Babu: the Elephant Route: brand new, beautiful rooms and amazing views on the reserve all around!!! Highly recommend!!

This is exactly a home stay as they have allowed us to prepare food for our child who has not eaten well since last 3 days. It is located at 1 km distance from the Periyer Tigre reserve. Also, the Kathakali perfofmences and the KRSTC stand is in the proximity of 1Kms. The breakfast is good. The owners were helpful.... More

Good size room with balcony. Comfortable stay in the middle of town. Nothing fancy but functional nonetheless. Babu and Maria were wonderful hosts and gave us a tour of their new hotel (Elephant Route) which looks amazing and definitely where we will stay next time.

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.
