Rooms were very well furnished, spacious and clean. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the cliff and at 800 rs a night, a real bargin! The wifi is good when it works but with frequent black outs in the town don't expect anything too consistent. The hotel manager and staff are very nice and accommodating ensuring we had... More

Great stay at Oceanic, really close to all the eating and drinking places along the cliffs. Clean room and the air con was really cool! Best of all was the helpful and honest advice from the manager and his staff, who were the friendliest we've met so far. Nice view from the balcony. We hope to go back soon. Highly... More

I think we were pretty much the first customers of the season in Mid-November. Our room was clean, mosquito-free and quiet. Staff was friendly but not always available. The wi-fi didn't work properly and there was no restaurant, but the hotel is very close to the North-Cliff restaurants and the beach. The beach itself is very small, by the way,... More

We stayed with Saju - longer than expected. Nice guesthouse in the second row to the restaurants. Every room has a different wall painting above the bed, clean big bath, no cockroaches in the rooms! No noise at night. The staff was very helpful with renting scooter, taxi to Trivandrum and very nice to talk to. Plus the guesthouse is... More

The balcony is cosy and Satu tries everything that you feel comfortable. They can also arrange pick up from airport and tours. It's better to stay in oceanic which is very close... More
