“Good job overall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

We paid 2,000 (A/C non-seaveiew) per night at Baywatch, Cherai Beach. Our father-son excursion was really great. The hotel itself leaves much to be desired but can easily overlook all things considered. We found the service of the staff was out-of-this-world; restaurant staff was so-so. Food was excellent and a good value. Chicken 65 (boneless) was excellent and so was the coconut chutney and dosa. The furnishings must have been constantly wiped to keep them so clean. Sea spray is really hard to keep cleaned up and the room and restaurant showed the marks of lots of hard work. We found everyone willing to go the extra mile and we didn't care that we didn't have hot water or some of the paint was peeling. The hotel driver (Rajeeb) drove a nice car but was not nice how he took us out of the way and to the places he wanted us to see (not what we wanted to see), also he was 20 min late to pick us up for the airport and when he did finally come his fuel gage was on empty! Not the hotel's fault. We had the place mostly to ourselves, the beach was a blast.

Room Tip: 105 was a good one, but no sea view. We could have paid a bit extra, but didn't for sea room...

My husband and I stayed at Baywatch Beach Resort and were far from impressed. While the property is one of the few on Cherai Beach directly on the sand, the rooms don't have much of a view. There's a large gate running around the property which is frequently closed. The rooms downstairs appear to have once had decks that looked out onto the beach, but they've been enclosed in a weird anteroom. The food is overpriced, and the rooms were very basic. We will not return, and I suggest anyone interested in visiting Cherai Beach to go to another resort.

We a group of 40 people stayed at Baywatch Beach resort on 09/17. We have finalized after a long negotiation with the Manager. Here I have to mention the Manager Mr. Aneesh. He was so friendly and have arranged the accomodation and food exceptionally well. Even though the resort can accomodate only 32 persons, we have been offered the nearby homestay which is equally too good.

The support staffs were so curtious and have served well.

Campfire was arranged along the seaside which made for our fun activities and dance floor.

I would say it was well organized and worth for any official parties.

Food was too good and it still remains in our tastebuds.

Kudos to each one of the member of this resort. Right from t eh checf, support staff and the Manager.

Room Tip: Choose for sea facing rooms

My husband and I have pre-paid for three nights at his hotel through our travel agent. We were booked to stay 13th-16th August and had paid extra for a room with a sea view. When we arrived there was no evidence of a reception area and our driver went looking for a staff member. We waited around the restaurant area. At this point we noticed that at 1.30pm there was absolutely not one table set up for service, with some tables stacked on one another. There was three young men drinking beer. The entrance from the beachside had again several young men hanging around. We felt there was no one staying at the hotel and felt quiet unsafe. We did agree to look at our room which was down a dingy corridor, there was a large hole in the wall outside our room. The view that we had paid for yes indeed you could see the beach but you were also looking over the hotel rubbish yard. The hotel is absolutely nothing like the photo's that are on their website and this is very misleading as we chose this hotel based on the pretty beach (which is very dirty), the nice tables and outdoor eating and the umbrella's along the beach. We did not stay. The hotel did not refund any of our money saying they were fully booked, this we find very hard to believe. We have since emailed the hotel and they have never replied. We have been travelling for over 20 years and never have we walked out of hotel and a pre-paid one at that. Very disappointing and the website should be shut down

This resort in the only one facing the beach.
Resort is clean and staff are very friendly,professional and helping. We booked 4 to 5 rooms connected to my brothers marriage for 2 to 3 nights. Accommodation for my relatives and friends were arranged here. Mr Suresh (owner) was very helpful and went out of way to help us to arrange party for my friends and relatives. Infact I was very much impressed by the special care extended by Mr Suresh and his hotel manager to make sure my friends and relatives were all comfortable during our stay with baywatch.
Loved the local fresh fish specially prepared for our party and other typical spicy kerala food . Chef also makes nice continental food as per our request.
Resort is perfect for value for the money and for relaxing in the cherai beach. Paravur town is 10 mts from the resort and well connected with Cochin which takes another 25 minutes from Paravur.
We recommend baywatch as the best one in cherai for experiencing the beautiful beach in cherai to full extent. will surely visit again in our next visits.

Room Tip: top floor,one facing to sea in middle of the resot

We had a sea facing room (room 103). Absolutely marvelous view. Bath room was huge. Service was good though not excellent. Staff was helpful. TV(set and connection) was average, but who wants to see TV at such a location. But for the price (3K/day) during new year) it was absolutely great. The best part is the rooftop restaurant, having dinner while in cool sea breeze and see waves crashing on the beach was one of the best experience of our stay. I would definitely recommend this resort to my family and friends.
The staff are very honest, had left my N95 mobile phone(cost 25K) at the resort, I called my phone expecting it to be switched off and lost for ever, but the receiptionst picked up my phone, took my Gurgaon address. Received my phone via courier in 3 days.
