Punnamada resort 
We visited the punnamada resort in end of may ,the weather in Alleppey at the time is hot and muggy. My group had 2couples with 3 children and one senior citizen. 
The resort is located right at the lake and commands excellent views .we took the garden villa rooms which didn't have a view but were large and charming built in typical keralite architecture .lots of wood and attention to detail ,it had an open plan bathroom which was very interesting and first time experience. They have a lot of indoor activities - billiard ,pool table ,  chess ,table tennis ,carom ,and others
Outdoor activities were badminton ,volleyball ,trampoline for kids ,cycling ,fishing ,paddle boat .they have a canoe for which a staff will take u out on the lake which was very nice . 
The kids were thoroughly enjoying themselves and there was a lot to keep them occupied.
The swimming pool is in poor condition ,the mosaic tiles are getting loose and they hurt one of our group members,others have also reviewed against this ,but it seems the hotel is negligent here.
Breakfast was very good .we had a meal here but it can be expensive ,and u don't have any other options close by .And getting out for meals at night is a hassle .
The staff is attentive and took good care of us.
Overall the layout is very nice and it has a heritage feel . The staff is attentive and took good care of us.the meals are decent.the kids had a very good time and u can safely let them run around.
Its the kind of place where pleasent memories are made. 
I Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: No eateries around , try to get an map plan ...

We stayed for 3 nights. Resort is excellent place to relax. We were a couple with two little children, food was excellent, staff hospitality was very good. You should try the boat house from the resort it was a very nice experience. May be will have more fun with a group. And cost wise A bit of a pinch in the pocket, could have been little lesser. I got a deal for 27K for 3 nights with a 5 hr house boat cruise..About the spa not very convincing it was tooo...expensive. Over all enjoyed the stay can rate as 4 star experience.

Away from the city in a tranquil environment, beautiful surroundings, fantastic food and welcoming room to rest. Even though our stay was only for 4 days, we enjoyed almost all activities, the early monsoon and the amazing houseboat ride. The stay was topped up with the delicious food & excellent service. We enjoyed the traditional yet modern Kerala , from lake view villa to relaxing massages. All in all a fantastic Holiday and tons of fond memories…. look forward to visiting again…

Room Tip: Lake View Villa is the best choose...

HI ! We three couple with our two child of 5 years visited this resort in may 2011. It was the last destination of our Kerala trip. And let me tell all the readers that this was our most ever memorable visit to any resort..
We stay there for three days and all the facilities given to us were not only as per their promise but even more..The rooms, The swimming pool, The restaurant, Even the bath rooms were also very neat, clean and worth our payment. Their staff members were also very co-operative .. even after almost a year, still I remember one of the manager’s name..Mr. sanjay.
Food served to us was really of great test. We never tested such mouthwatering ‘ BEET VEG. CURRY and KERALIAN RICE. And it was a gentle suggestion from one of his main kitchen staff.
We enjoyed a lots of other activities to like, playing keram, chess, table-tennis pooltable and even cycling in their indoor- outdoor places…and ya, all these was FREE of COST..
If u want to ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF SUNRISE and GREAT NESS OF SUNSET FROM A LAKESIDE BENCH, it’s available for u specially at PUNNAMADA.
At the end a TRUE NATURE LOVER must go and STAY AT PUNNAMADA for AT LEAST 3 DAYS to explore and enjoy the beauty of nature and the resort thoroughly..
WISH U ALL A HAPPY STYING..

The location by the lake is simply breathtaking! It's only minutes away from the noisy town center and yet as soon as you get there you feel you are in a whole different world! The staff was extremely polite, accomodating, and very discreet. The food was AMAZING! The best throughout our trip in India and certainly among the top from all our trips. As we were few guests at the hotel at the time, they prepared everything for us on the spot and overall we were treated like kings! I've travelled a lot and this was definitely one of my best expereinces.
