Cozy little hotel where I lived for almost three weeks. Rooms are simple and have everything you need. Affable and friendly staff. Very good location between two of the best beaches, Papanasam Beach and Black Beach. Very good food in the hotel restaurant, European and Indian. Especially good selection of fish dishes and seafood. I will definitely come back here.... More

Its a marvellous place to spend a week or two, especially if you are peace loving. The place has the vibrant touch of traditional kerala and the recipes are spicy. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Always at your service 24x7. The beach side view is to be preferred while staying there. I had a beach side view and... More

Reaching the property seems to be difficult. Difficult narrow path going through fully habituated village path originally made for bullock carts. Do not lose heart. Path is narrow but safe in mid night. Once you reach there it is a real good place to un wind. One should go for relaxing only. Good beach. Good sea view restaurant to eat... More

The restaurant is outsoruced and manned by friendly folks serving only conitinental and North indian (No local delicacies). Again easy on your wallet. Since it was monsoon... More

I booked Non-AC room in Clafouti resort for 2 nights. Rooms were clean and well maintained. There was no TV in the room but when you have scenic beauty just outside your room, why will you need a TV in your room! The restaurant at the resort was well maintained. The range of Sea-food they are offering is huge. Food... More

Stayed for one night. Cozy, calm, mostly private, even outside in the premises, though that may have something to do with the fact that we went during off-season. The manager was helpful, breakfast at the cliff-top cafe overlooking the sea was great. The cottage rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. No TV in the rooms, but you wouldn't want it... More
