Booked Citrus Allepey for my wife's birthday. Stay was great as the room was facing the backwaters, felt just like a docked houseboat. Requested the manager to arrange a cake n also plan for candle light dinner in the room. The hotel staff took care of that veru well. The complimentary boat ride makes up for not staying in the...

This is a nice quiet retreat away from the hussle and bussle. We were pleased to stay here rather than on a houseboat which would have sent me stir-crazy. This place allows a free one hour boat cruise each night which is more than enough. A few little things that were slightly frustrating: breakfast is not included in the price... More

It is nice place but some improvements would be welcome. The rooms are nice and there are various sizes of the same. They are kept fairly clean. The view from the room of the lake is very relaxing with house boats and a good view of the sunrise. To get to the place a ten minute transit by boat will... More

We do not recommend staying at this hotel. Rooms was not clean. Grounds and hotel ( with exception of lobby) are in disrepair. Here are some pictures that illustrate the disrepair and lack of cleanliness- the broken glass table in the room, the bugs, nasty trash can, etc. There were so many bugs outside the door to our room that...

Everything about it is lovely: the super friendly and helpful staff and their excellent breakfast buffet were what we liked the most. When they knew we are newlywed they surprised us with a great flower decoration in the room. Hotels are about service and at citrus Hotel they sure know how to treat their guests. Little disappointed with swimming pool... More

This resort is full of positive vibes. The rooms are super clean and well maintained. We were lucky to get a lake view facing room which was amazing. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly lavish and very delicious. The hotel provides a great houseboat tour to the backwaters which is a must do in Kerala. We tried local food at their... More

Our stay was at very short notice, having arrived at another hotel in alleppey that was inadequate. We upgraded to suite at a low cost, and were extremely impressed with the comfort, the cleanliness, and the courtesy of all the staff. Breakfast was good, and we had an evening meal which was good quality and value. We will definitely stay... More
