We stayed on the Pulickattil House Boat in August of 2014 and we had an amazing experience thanks to the staff on the boat. Their hospitality and service made up for the negatives of the boat itself. The boat was relatively old which is not the problem but the rooms had a moldy smell and things were falling apart. The... More

Hospitality and food were the highlight of this trip, Staff is very friendly and supportive. For people who love sea foods, this is a paradise. Rooms are quiet goods. We can have Ayurveda massage. Evening time you can enjoy with a tea and snacks while sitting in houseboat lobby.

I actually had more expectations on this one, although this one was not bad , may be luxury ones offer better stay.. I booked a deluxe house boat, its all for ourselves and it was fine.. The captain and chef were courteous, (although expect them to be dressed better).. For non vegetarians its a treat, for veggies like me it... More

Double minded on whether to rate it 3/5 or 4/5. But then, its +1 just for the Feel Good Factor, which includes the hospitality, food, and the Alleppey in itself. The Good: The houseboat guys are amazing people, they make you feel at home, great cooks, the feel of tea with pakodas while sitting in houseboat lobby with rain outside... More

I have just returned from a weekend in Cochin, such a beautiful place. We spent one night aboard a 2 bedroom houseboat provided by ELITE HOUSEBOATS. Was more than impressed. They went over and above to collect us from Cochin airport and returned again the following day. Houseboat was in perfect condition and very clean, staff were friendly and welcoming.... More

Coco boats - avoid avoid avoid! Paid for one of their best boats and got an ancient dirty old boat. They refused to refund the difference in price. There are lots of different boat companies so avoid cocoboats at all costs. The owner couldn't even as much as apologise - dishonest crook

Stayed one night on a house boat cruising the backwaters of Alleppey. What an experience! It's simply breath taking and very relaxing. Our boat was simple but clean and the 3 guys that came with us were lovely. Took care of us amazingly and we felt very safe with them (3 females travelling together - no one else with us).... More
