I stayed at Estuary Island Resort with my wife and kid for 3 nights, as a part of our last leg of 8-nights trip to Kerala. As you enter the resort, there is a sign-board which says that it is a place where a beach, a river, a lake and a sea come together and create a spectacular view. I...

We stayed in the room 'Estuary garden' and the room was just average. There weren't even chairs and tables in the room. The washbasin was choked when we reached and after repeated calls, the people came after 45 minutes. The water was dripping from the AC the whole night. In the morning when the repair person came he probably just...

We had to stay in a room which was on the 2nd floor and all the heat was trapped in it. It had a peculiar charm to it though with shorter roofs on the side, it seemed the management wanted to get maximum out of the limited space. The pool and the courtyard between pool and jetty were great especially...

If I could apply NO stars, I would. This is a large resort past its prime. The rooms are large, but over the years maintenance has been done very cheaply. The end result is a tawdry ambience in the room. Our room had a balcony with glass doors but if we left the doors open even for a moment, Crows...
