Nice Hotel by the beachPosted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: Nice quiet location with very clean, spacious rooms. Very close to a lovely beach, restaurants and bars. helpful manager who arranged trips and taxis.
Cons: Laundry service was slow. Items were missing, including an expensive jumper and t-shirts were shrunk 2 sizes. Whites were rather grey.
We were really pleased with this hotel. It was located right by a lovely quiet beach and not far from some restaurants and bars. Some only sold beer as 'special tea' so you have to ask. The hotel will provide chairs to sit on the beach if you ask. Rooms were spacious and very clean and the air conditioning worked and was quiet! From the upstairs bedrooms you could sit by the windows and watch the sea. Breakfast was a good mixture of fruit, eggs and toast. The manager could not have been more helpful, arranging trips and onward taxi to Cochin. Our only complaint was we used the laundry service. It took 2 days to get our clothes back and they arrived only half an hour before we left. When we looked at the laundry in our next location, we found items missing, including an expensive jumper. The whites were more grey than white and not even splash marks had been washed out. The t-shirts were shrunk and shiny with over-ironing.

Tourists and human waste do not mixPosted Feb 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed here for a week in February with my wife and overall we enjoyed the experience. I would agree with all the good points that have been written however there are a few areas that need sorting out. The first is the hot water system; we could deal with the fact that it was only on for a limitted time in the morning as it could be switched on when needed at other times. The problem was the awful racket the water pump makes. I read about this in a previous TA review but it is a problem. Beds very hard too. The bigest issue was that the naturally beautiful beach is used by local fisher men as their main toilet. Whilst I understand that this is all part of the local culture, Casamaria does claim to be a beach hotel so they should at least try to keep the beach adjacent to the hotel clean (as the beach hut owners in Goa do).

Ok place but wouldn't recommend the resortPosted Dec 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms were ok but the resort was a waste of time, we were told marari was better. The sea was rough and had sewage running into it. The hotel was friendly but overpriced. Hot water lasted 15 seconds. Think carefully before you stop at this resort

Great service - but not a resortPosted Nov 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
We spend 1 night here. Sheets were so dirty they had to be changed, but this was done fast and with a smile. There is no restaurant, so you cannot eat here - however they manage to serve you breakfast here. Service is great and friendly, but that is also what will carry this hotel through. Rest is so so. For 1 night transit stay it is ok, but though 3-4 km from the main houseboat area.

its not a "resort" and its overpricedPosted Oct 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
"resort" to me means some kinda of recreation/entertainment is available on campus. here we were at Casamaria "resort" and all it had were a dark micro-reception, 3 rooms on the first floor and some coconut trees in the backyard with access to the beach. thoroughly disappointed - hot water was not available - you request for it and you get it after 30 mins is what we were told - we asked twice in the span of 45 minutes and we finally got lukewarm water after one hour. totally overpriced and definitely not worth staying at for the price. asked to hire "Shkaara" boat and were quoted an exorbitant rate whereas in town, we could rent for half the price. totally not my cup of tea.

excellent service and breakfastPosted Oct 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located near beach and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Breakfast was excellent and service up to the mark. Our stay was comfortable and enjoyable.
