We stayed here for 3 nights during March 2013. Blue Mermaid was very clean, quite basic but very pleasant. We had booked to stay at Kannur Beach House (Next door) but refused the rooms we were offered. We were fortunate enough to get a room at Blue Mermaid. A blessing in disguise. A much nicer homestay at a lower room rate. Whew!!!
We were made very welcome by Indu (Owner) and her staff.
There was plenty of food at each meal. The food was typical Keralan cuisine with fresh fish for most evening meals and fresh fruit to accompany breakfast. The filtered (Not bottled mineral) water provided with the meals was perfectly fine to drink. We never had an upset stomach.
Overall, a very nice relaxing stay in lovely surroundings right by an empty beach.
