We were at Abad's Turtle Beach Resort, Mararikulam, located between Kochi and Alapuzha. This was a family gathering for the Onam festival and we had booked nine rooms for two days. This resort has a seabeach and a swimming pool, so for those people who like water and sun and sand and surf, this is an ideal location. The resort... More

For ordering extra glasses (2 additional versus the 2 already placed), the staff has the audacity to blatantly refuse you. Also, they will then send someone to check on the glasses that were provided in the room. The trauma continues... More

Only problem we have faced is service. They have taken long time to get the room ready for us. We have got the rooms at... More
