Looking at other reviews, I was not sure how we were going to like this hotel. It does really seem to that people love it or hate it. To find it from the airport, get a taxi ask for Puthenthoppu. The hotel is about 200m meters beyond the big church in the village. There is a small shop on the... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Nothing in this hotel is actually there what is stated in the hotel description. We had booked and prepaid delight deluxe room that was supposed to be the best room in the hotel. The hotel actually does not deserve to be called hotel at all, it is more like a... More

This is the review by another of our guest who stayed during the same time you stayed. "Superb location with Pacific character (Palm beach, warm sea, gentle wind, fishermen, not tourists). Dedicated, thorough on Individual Staff, creates family atmosphere. Trip with the hotel chef. Quiet village approximately 30 kilometres from the city". I do not understand the reason for your...

I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of my Keralan holiday as a solo female and I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere at the hotel and a chilled day at the beach. I had a comfortable room overlooking the pool with the lovely quiet beach visible beyond.The owners admit that they are not professional hoteliers but they go... More

I stayed here for two nights at the end of my stay - as I was flying out of Trivandrum. Matthew and his wife collected me from the airport which was great. The journey was about 40 minutes in total and it was nice to chat about the local area on the way. The property is lovely, it feels like... More

We booked this hotel through clear trip. We booked two rooms for two night and I'm writing this review while I'm at the property. There are many issues with this property which you come to know while you're here. 1. Rooms: The room images shown are extremely misleading. The image is of supposedly the 'super delux room' (which we got... More

We reached by a cab from Trivandrum city (this is about 20 km from the city). Mathew, the resort owner, received us. We reached in the afternoon; advise to inform lunch requirement in advance. Else may have to wait until prepared. The cook, Tijo, is friendly and made reasonably tasty food (we ate vegetarian). Ramesh, who is the caretaker, is... More

This was a lovely hotel to stay in, set in palm trees fringing a beach still used by fishermen and uncolonised by tourists. Friendly family owners are hands-on and intent on supporting the community and natural environment around the hotel. They gave us helpful advice on what to see in the Trivandrum area, and could arrange trips, including visiting a... More

I have not attended Palmleaves as of yet but they have been quick to reply to my emails with confirmations and set up a taxi pick up from the airport. This contact has really put me at ease as a first time traveler to India!

If you like a coconut palm fringed beach full of rubbish, mainly plastic, wild dogs and men defecating in the shallows, then this is the place for you. Hardly picturesque. Added to that women need to be covered up, even then I was leered at and cat called even though I'm in my 50s! Also, couples are frowned upon for... More
