“Very Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The resort is located very close to the entrance of the periyar tiger reserve

The rooms are immaculate, but a bit cramped. Each room comes with a small jungle facing balcony, which offers you a view of a dried up lake and thickly populated bamboos (or atleast they look like).
We only had a breakfast at the place and it was excellent! The staff was very courteous and the hospitality, great!

One major drawback of the place is that it is situated bang on the main road leading to the periyar tiger reserve(so are many other resorts), which makes the place least tranquil. The road has traffic all day, especially in the evenings, and the sound of vehicles( which you least wanted on a holiday) irritates you! The resort also lacks a swimming pool.

Pros:
Clean and well furnished rooms
Great food
Very close to periyar tiger reserve
Excellent hospitality

Cons:
Least tranquil
The view from the balcony is not so great, and you don't get to spot any bisons or some 'wild' animals, as they mention!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have a better view of the 'jungle'!

Stayed here on 4th Dec 2012 as a part of my package with Make My Trip
The hotel is located adjoining the buffer zone of the jungle and all rooms are jungle view. The rooms have been tastefully done with the balcony and bath area looking into the jungle. You can see a lot of birds and monkeys from the room itself. The atmosphere is simply addictive and I wish I spent more time in this resort.
Service was top class with the owner of the hotel personally supervising the operations.
The restaurant serves good a-la-carte food with most of the dishes mentioned on the menu actually available. Service could have been better. The restaurant is a bit understaffed.
Overall I had superb time in the resort though I feel tour operators give too less time to Thekkady which is a very nice place with lots of activities to do.

We had been to Jungle Park resorts for 2 days and we had chosen the jungle view rooms.The rooms were neat and average.The food is not that great. Since our package included breakfast; the breakfast was strictly ok.The staff were good and helpful.Not much to do in the resort.Well there are many resorts in & around which are low priced and yet great.

Room Tip: The jungle view rooms on the 1st floor ie close to the reception area are new rooms and cleaner than...

A reasonably new hotel, Jungle Park Resort is ideally located near the Periyar Tiger Reserve. The check in & check out was smooth and efficient. The room was spacious, neat and afforded a decent view of the buffer zone between the Tiger Reserve and the town. The breakfast spread was limited and could do with some additions in the menu.
Mr Farookh at the reception stood out for being extremely helpful and exuded a very positive attitude.

This hotel is 5minutes awat from the entrance to periyar tiger reserve,and it's brand new,really.

My room was with jungle view,you get a tiny balcony, bed, flatscreen tv and comfy beed

Restaurant is clean, food ok,basically indian.

Staff is friendly and nice, but for example room wasnt cleaned up after my first night. But it is ok for indian standard.

Nothing is wrong with this hotel, but definately you won't remember your staying here...
