My sisters and i went during off season and that has its perks and flaws. There were no guests other than us.He arranged a room where we could all stay together and have our sister time. We really enjoyed the swimming pool. Special thanks to Mr.Anoop for having cleaned out the pool especially for us.

We stayed during December'2011 for 2 nights in the cottage. It is almos within the beach and we can view the sea from the room itself. The pristine small beach for enjoyment is exactly 2 minutes away from the room. The night market is 3 - 4 minutes walk from room. Cleanliness and staffs are bit issue but the location... More

The last time we stayed here, there was a power failure for an entire night. They dint have any generator back up and i couldnt sleep one bit with all the heat and humidity. The whole experience was stifling and as unpleasant as it can get. So my advice is, stay away from this place if your idea of a... More

This hotel was suggested by my travel agent. I accepted their suggestion and do not regret it a bit. A thouroughly anjoyable quiet place, the hotel has most of the amenities, though some of them do not work and you have to bring it to the notice of the management. The hotel has both brick and morter structure as well... More

Cocroaches in your room. Dysfunctioning ac. No cleaning. No toiletpaper. Noise in the night. And high-end prices. Don't go here. You get exploited. The huts are much too close to each other. No privacy. No goodies? Yes, the endless toar of the arabian dea. But that's gods gift. That's free.

This is to warn people when booking with these guys. We made a reservation via email (from abroad) and kept calling, emailing etc and were told our reservation was confirmed - yet we still wanted to pay our deposit - but then they disappeared and finally a month or so later finally got back to us saying the rooms were...

I booked to stay here for a week over the Christmas break. The location is good, very peaceful and the heritage cottage I stayed in was clean. There were a few problems though: the bed was very hard, the windows have no screens or bars so you can't keep them open at night and it's almost impossible to find someone... More

Spent 9 days here over new years and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. We stayed in a cottage and had no complaints. The location is perfect, 2 mins walk from small beach and only 10 mins along the cliff tops to the larger beach. We ate at the restaurant several times and had no... More

The website pictures and reviews paint a much better picture than it really is. As this is a negative review, I will try to explain my dissatisfaction thoroughly so you can make your own judgement to spend your hard-earned money on Woodhouse Beach Resort. To give you perspective, I am ex-US Army and my wife is 7 months pregnant, but... More

Overall, a good value-for-money stay. My room was nice, the restaurant was good (very happy with the complimentary brekkie options), the staff friendly & helpful & the beach is right out front. Only one negative: my room was right above reception and beside some kind of office, where all the staff congregate, and it did get quite noisy at times.... More
