As part of a tour of Kerala, we had the misfortune of having to stay one night at this 'Fawlty Towers-esque' shambles of a hotel. I agree with other reviews that it is in an idyllic position but you soon forget about that when there is absolutely nothing to do or anywhere to go !!!
Firstly we were the only couple in the hotel which was a little disconcerting in itself but we decided to have a wander anyway. The pool was in real need of TLC as were the sunbeds available onto which we had to put our own towels as no one was around to supply the towels mentioned in the brochure (picky but a valid point).
Next, the power blacked out every 5 minutes or so and the cable to the TV shut down totally.....this being a nightmare as there is simply NO entertainment at all in the hotel !
Dinner.........maybe we would get salvation ? Oooooooooh no ! As we were alone in the hotel, the buffet was not offered so we ordered from the ' a la carte ', a very loose term in itself ! What with the constant power failings, no alcohol on offer and having the staff stand right on top of us for the entire time, the experience was dreadful. Coupled with this, I had to send my food back twice as a) it was freezing and b) the chicken was nowhere near cooked !
Feeling very sorry for ourselves, we went trudging back to our ' shack ' and drank a litre of vodka (luckily purchased at the airport) which we drank in the dark because the lighting had packed in for the night and in the morning skipped breakfast whilst nursing terrible hangovers AND ESCAPED to our guide who we nearly hugged with relief.
I think you will be catching the drift of where I am coming from with this review and believe me, this is the edited version !
