I would only recommend the Lake Paradise Resort for the location. Everything else was mediocre at best. It should also be noted that the Lake Paradise is only accessible by boat, provided by the resort. So if you plan on walking about town after sundown, you will have to arrange pickup by phone. The property is located in the backwaters of Allepey. The location is beautiful, but be advised this is a no frills kind of place.
The food was tolerable but cold most days. Food is served family-style with fellow resort guests. Guests receive whatever food is prepared that day, so if you're a picky eater or have food allergies, be advised.
We sprung for the deluxe room with A/C. The accommodations were so so. I'd call it glorified camping i.e. bare bones.
We did enjoy a very nice boat ride through the backwaters provided by Anthony Tours for the Lake Paradise, which I would highly recommend.
Overall, I would recommend this resort for the adventurous traveller just looking for a place to crash. For someone interested in a good meal, warm shower, and a nice room, look elsewhere. Maybe spend a little extra money for a nicer resort along the backwaters, there appeared to be quite a few.
Likeliness I'd stay here again....doubtful. Do I regret it...not at all.
