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

We stayed here 1 week - the location is quiet, in between many other hotels and guesthouses - rooms are airy, clean and comfortable. Hot shower is also available. Each room has a private veranda. The beaches are within easy reach.

Stayed in the hotel for one night and have only positive things to say about the experience. Cool rooms and clean and friendly staff. It was safe and is a very short distance from the beach. I would recommend to all. It is certainly better than the beach huts.
