“Go Kerala”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2011

Had booked a sea view room for 2 weeks. The room was nice with a great view. Big waves hitting the rocks, nothing for sound-sensitivs. During the stay I was informed that i needed to change rooms becouse of doubblebooking. When the same happened again decided to move out. Poor managment, not reliable. Happened to look in their kitchen backstage, wouldn´t dare to eat there either...Not a recommandation from me.

We had spent two days in the huge Sagara beach resort before we found this little gem.
This is NOT a luxury place in fact far from it and probably would only suit budget traverlers or backpackers however the friendly rustic feel about this place won us over. Its situated on its own a few hundred metres around the corner from the main strip but well away from the crowds.
It only has about 9 rooms, most with balconys that have a wonderful view right next to the ocean. The rooms are basic but big and clean, no swimming pool or anything like that, but it surely makes up for it with the friendly staff, great views, a small but romantic restaurant right on the ocean with good but cheap food. Excellant place for the budget traveller who wants to get away from the crowds.

Room Tip: Maybe check it out first before you book because it's not for everyone. Ask for a room with a oc...
