“Nice hotel but spider friendly rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for 1 day. Since our trip to Alappuzha wasn't confirmed, we dint book it. Before going there, I had read reviews about this place and decided to check this one out first if and when we reach Alleppy.
Luckily when we reached there, standard rooms were available and we took one of them. It was a basic clean and tidy room at the first glance. But when my wife pointed out the spider webs, I checked the whole rooms and found there were numerous spiders and webs even close to bed and besides it. We were quite disappointed, we checked another standard room but it was the same as well.
Then we checked the only left out room ie Deluxe room on first floor. Even though it had the same problem, it was relatively less. So we decided to go for it and then staff cleaned the room again.

After that, our stay was quite relaxing. It had a beautiful view of beach and sea from room and they even have a couple of chairs and a table for us to enjoy evening Tea with snacks. The in-house food is quite cheap and delicious. So we had our lunch, snacks, dinner and breakfast all there only. Backside of resort opens to beach from where we went to main Alleppy beach.
The Service was quite good and staff was quite attentive. The food HOT served at all times was quite delicious. The manager (Gypson... pardon me if spelling mistake) was quite helpful and had good understanding of how to take care of clients.
The owner (William) on the other hand, wasn't as humble as he should be and we would have shifted to another hotel if it wasn't for Mr. Gypson.

Overall, it was a nice budget hotel with a superb location and superb view (only from Deluxe rooms) and we, more or less, enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: Rooms were quite clean and presentable apart from the fact that there were many Spiders and Spider-w...

Dear Mr Salil,

This is in reference to your above feedback about your stay at Casamaria , thanks indeed for your positive notes about our hotel regarding the ambience ,food and the services of Mr. Gypson , Regarding the complaint of the Cob webs found underneath the cot and behind the doors, in no way can be justified by us as it was the genuine fault by our housekeeping department. Even though we had requested you give us five minutes to could clean up you were not prepared to take it and tried to negotiate with us on the room rates instead. I had no other go but to deny discounts, since we maintain a uniform rate with the other clients who were staying at Casamaria then. That was the only reason for me to have suggested you to try taking a room in our nearby hotel , I am really very sorry if you had found me not humble in that statement and my sincere apologies for the same.

We consider the customer complaints/ feedbacks as our school books from which we learn and your complaint is taken seriously and we will take care in future

Warm Regards

William Rodrigues

The hotel is clean and the closest to the beach in Alleppey . The staff are friendly, go out of thier way to be helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. Ample breakfast, toast cerelas, eggs and in the day and evening super food.. Its not three star but cosy and very good value for money indeed. We will be going back next year and during our stay talked to many repeat guests all who were impressed by Gypson and his staff who go out of thier way to make your stay more than pleasant. Rooms are simple but well equipped with fridge , tv , dressing table will overload and blow the trip switch in the room but then with the beach so near who needs them? Beach goes for miles and is sandy , Take a torch to India there are many power cuts and whilst there is street lighting its not like here in the US.

Again we would recommend the Casamaria Beach Resort 10 out of ten for friendliness and Location

Room Tip: Book the rooms on the first floor

We choose to stay at Casamaria Beach Resort by the reviews of the customers given in Trip Advisor , I Checked in to the hotel with lots of expectations This is just a Glorified Homestay with 6 rooms , The advantage of the hotel is the Location ( on the beach ) , Small Garden and the Staff who is very attentive to the Guest and apart from this there is nothing else and it would have been better if they had a pool , and Balcony on the first floor , The Rooms are again basic with just a TV and a Mini Fridge , the Beds and Cot could have been better , Food is Good , Mr Shine was outstanding in his services to the Clients

However I would suggest the new customers to check in to the Hotel without any expectation or imagination then you will enjoy Casamaria for sure

Room Tip: Do not have too much of expectations

We were a group of 5 friends who landed in Alleppey with a booking at some other Resort. However, since we didnt like that resort we decided to move out of there and searched for a new place. We happened to go to Casamaria Beach Resort - a decent resort with good rooms. The best part about the resort was the Location and the well maintained Gardens ,Rooms were cozy and clean with AC, Hot Water, Mini Fridge and all other basic amenities. Room Service was also prompt in most cases.
However, the beds were not very comfortable and one of my friends had a stiff back after our stay of 3 nights out there. Also, the complementary breakfast left a lot to be desired. The beach is also just about walking distance. Not in a position to talk about the quality of the beach area since it was raining heavily during that weekend (July 8 -2012 ).
Its a decent place for the price we paid ...

I must admit, having read a few good reviews about this place, I was not sure if I had made the right decision by booking into this hotel. Besides, I am always apprehensive about hotels, which add words such as "Boutique" in their name, just to lure tourists from abroad. But the moment I set foot into this marvelous property, i was pleasantly surprised. It was a nice quiet little place well suited for our needs.

The hotel is about 10 minutes drive from Houseboat docking point and located right on the beach , Well maintained garden , The rooms are nice and cozy, very clean and basic and it would be better if there was a balcony and we had The Hotel Owner , Mr. William Rodrigues is extremely cordial and is willing to go that extra mile for anything a customer needs. The hotel staff is very friendly especially Mr Gypson and the Kerala food served there is a treat to remember


Overall, I would highly recommend this place for travelers who want to enjoy a relaxed trip on a not-so-lavish budget

We choosed to stay in Casamaria Beach Resort by seeing the review on trip advisor , trust me it is an amazing place , We felt as Home away from home as the Hotel staff were taking good care of us and were catering to all our needs , very patient and co operative , The highlight of our tour was the Bar-be-cue dinner which we had in the night which we made by ourself with the assistance of our Chef Chandan , We are longing to be back to Casamaria once again

Room Tip: Book the room which is on the first floor to have a view to the beach
