Pros: Staff, garden
Cons: Liqueur licence
Location: Kerala backwaters
We loved our stay, the staff, especially at reception is exceptional. The lack of liqueur licence is a bit of a disappointment. It's always nice to have a cocktail on vacation.

Beautiful & peaceful

Pros: Excellent staff & beautiful grounds.
Cons: Would have been nice if the hotel was licensed. Staff to have name badges.
Location: The hotel is located in a traditional Kerala fishing village not a tourist resort, but the hotel can arrange trips to the Backwaters, Cochin, Allepy
We stayed for 13 nights in a detached villa which was next to the beach. From the time we arrived to our depature the service at Abad Turtle beach was 6*. The grounds are beautiful & it very peaceful the only sound coming from the birds & the sea! The butterfly garden is lovely & there is an abundance of wildlife such as Indian palm squirrels, various birds & fruit bats which you will see from 5pm. It was also fantastic to sea the Sea Eagles fishing off the beach. The food in the restaraunt both breakfast & evening meal were excellent. There is a lovely clean swimming pool here too. The area surrounding the hotel is not a tourist resort but a traditional Kerala fishing village, which is why we choose this hotel. Don't come here if you want tourist shops & restaurants, but do come to enjoy the nature & to relax.

An amazing beach hotel; a sort of smart village.

Pros: 1. The private beach 2. Butterfly garden 3. Organic vegetable garden
Cons: 1. Plz provide mat outside the rest room. 2. Plz provide pool towel sufficiently.
The hotel premise is like a modern, smart village. It's a huge property and itself can be considered as a touristic spot. An environment friendly battery operated car made our stay easy to move from one spot to another. it's very useful for the older guests. Cycle track, children park, indoor play and the pool are other facilities to make the guests full time busy. I will definitely return into this property in future and recommend my friends and relatives to avail.

Reasonably good getaway location

Nice location, natural / organic environment. Would have be an awesome holiday had the aircon been working in good condition, not attended to effectively despite several calls. Seemed as though the resort was short on manpower as it took them almost half an hour to send the cart / bell boy to pick up luggage while checking out

Pros: Calm place to relax with family. There were no mosquitos even though there is so much stagnant water.
Cons: Staff at front desk needs to be more confident and, more fluent in english. They seemed timid. Travel related help would take long. Massages were OK.
Location: Alleppy & Kumarakom.
We spent 3 nights at this resort. Very pleasant place with good landscaping, facilities, cottages, ayurveda center. Restaurant has good breakfast. Dinner is good too but the buffet food is too rich and spicy. Vegetarian choices were there but seemed to be same every night!

Pros: beach and rooms
Cons: lots
We had read the reviews about this hotel before we booked it,so we were warned. Beautiful area and resort but very very underwhelming service. Firstly they didn't seem ready for us when we arrived,after faffing around they were ready minus an extra bed for one of my kids that took just forever to get to us and when it did my wife and I had to help the guy lift it into the room. The restaurant staff tho very sweet were clueless in Kerala,absolutely clueless which is not acceptable for this price bracket. The beach here is really beautiful,just super lovely and chilled. On our last day we ordered a car and driver which was then 2 hours late and really messed up our travel plans for that day and we had a long journey ahead. The manager and staff were just useless in sorting the car situ out. Eventually when we left after a free lunch!! We were told to pay the driver Rs6000 rather than the Rs 7500 we were quoted which made me think are these hotels charging a quite large commission on these journeys and ripping off the drivers who do a really hard job??

Green place , near to beach, clean and neat rooms. Everything was pleasing but don't expect too much luxury or wow thing. You can enjoy greenery, less crowded next to resort beach.

Pros: The location
Cons: The slowness of service
Location: Perfect
The hotel is beautiful and is very good value. However, don't expect speedy service - especially in the restaurant! The food is tasty but takes a fair while to arrive! However, if you're not in a hurry it's perfect!
