We booked 3 nights in the bungalow,which was up some very unsafe steps and cost £22 a night.On our arrival it took the lady all of 5 minutes to clean!However the location on the beach was good and the guy Manu was really nice.There was no hot water and the bath felt like it might fall through the floor.The first...

Apart from its beach location this place is hugely overrated. Also bear in mind that although it's by the beach, it's a long way from town and other amenities. We stayed for 2 nights in the bungalow, the most expensive of its rooms. The room was not clean, and the bathroom looked to be rusting away. The bungalow is a... More

My girlfriend and i turned up in Alleppey late in the evening and followed a Lonely Planet recommendation to stay here as we were going to jump on a houseboat the next day. We were told that there were no rooms at their primary location, so were shown to the annex. A lot cheaper, mainly due to not being right... More

yeah, what to say about this place. they were very accommodating to the budget traveller. we spent 800 ruppees a night. the owner was an interesting individual who had good help. they own another place down the street. not much to say about this beachfront place really. the owner is cool and the location is fine.

We arrived in the afternoon and the owner jay was nice enough. We took the cottage on the beach, which was quite expensive but seemed worthwhile. A loud crowd was right beside us, but this was not an issue in the afternoon. When we came back at around 8 pm, the party was much louder. We checked the room and... More

No frills rooms right on the beach. Bathrooms leave a bit to be desired but was roughly the right value for what we paid. Beachfront chairs and deck overlooking the water were great for hanging out, and it's a fun crowd. We did the ocean view cottage the first night and a more basic room the second night which was...

Great place, right at the beach front with super relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are simple but comfy. Jay and Manu who run the place are great guys, super friendly and honest and always helpful!! They helped us organise the Kerala Backwater boat trip, yoga classes and further travel arrangements.

My partner and I stayed at Mandala for 4 nights in November 2014 in the large ensuite beach hut. The location of this accommodation is amazing, the properties are right on to the clean, quiet and largely tourist-free beach and yet only a 5 minute drive from Alleppey town itself and the backwater tours. Also a great place for wildlife... More

I loved my stay here. The rooms were basic, btu the staff and help was super. Jay and his team cover everything and anything. Theres a little tree house to sit and spend the night laughing and playing music right on the beach. A stay for 3 days easily becomes 3 weeks. Watch out.

The room we took was a ground floor one for 650 Best budget place in town. Awesome location on a very quiet part of the beach, almost private. Good internet speeds (for India). Laid back chilled atmosphere. Very basic room, not much light a bit cave light, needs a thorough clean. No hot water. What makes this place is Jay... More
