We reached Alleppey at 7 Am morning and got the ferry at the jetty point to the hotel. The ride to the hotel in jetty through backwaters is one of great experience. Though we reached the hotel much before the check-in time, the staff was curteous and made us comfortable. We had an infant with us, the staff even helped... More

Hotel has very good infrastructure, viz swimming pool, location with good views, games room, well equipped facilities. However the restaurant service is very slow and inadequate wrt comparable standards. Needs a lot of improvement in terms of quality and speed of delivery. Also being at an isolated place, you need to depend on the ferry service provided by the hotel... More

The hotel doesn't have a bar so thats the only drawback but if you carry your own booze then its becomes real fun. The pool is well maintained too. Overall a pleasant... More

We stayed in Citrus for two days. The place is beautiful and so is their service and housekeeping. The aroma therapy centre is also awesome. But the only sad part about the whole thing was their food. Infact when we asked them about their best recommendation they suggested " Maggi noodles" can you imagine that!!! We took a pool villa...

We had to wait for around 30mins to send the motor boat for pick up, even though we reached on the time as communicated to us by the hotel and then when the motor boat reached for pick up, the driver went missing,...
