This place is not a hotel but kind of home stay managed by a family. Good location and well furnished rooms. But poor service made our stay miserable. On reaching the hotel, no water was available in the room. Next day morning also same thing was repeated. Not a drop of water was available in the bathroom. All taps went... More

Well equiped rooms is an exotic garden. The guest house is run by a ever so friendly and helpfull family. I loved the personal touch. Close to a part of the village, Near to spice gardens! It's a pleasant stay in the mountains after visiting the tropical south!

Very pleasant house with good big bedrooms. Location quite good on the edge of town. Only a short walk but you pass a troop of monkeys and the edge of the National Park. Watch for the large fruit bats roosting high in the bamboos. No safe in the room and no AC. AC not needed while we were here. Cool... More

The guesthouse is run by a warm and welcoming family who go out of their way to ensure you are looked after and enabled to enjoy Thekkady without stress. The room was very clean (always important for us) and spacious with a fan to keep you cool at night. Activities around the area (elephant rides, tea factory tours, tiger treks)... More

It was hard at first to choose a guesthouse in Thekkady, close to the Periyar Reserve, but after making some reservations and looking more closely at all the websites, I opted for El Paradiso. This turned out to be an excellent choice!. It is the rear part of a family home, but designed for guests. Quiet and on an internal... More

We stayed here for just the one night over the Christmas period and had a great experience for such a short amount of time. The staff/family were very friendly and always willing to help. We had arrived fairly late that evening and had nowhere to eat and despite her evident tiredness the landlady still insisted on cooking their sought after... More

Staff were very friendly and willing to help. Clean and nice enough rooms with comfy beds. The place has free WiWiFhowever only in the lounge room or on top balcony in far corner near road. Would recommend for someone who wants a place to sleep or relax for short period of time but not a pamper
