We had a wonderful trip to Kerala in January 2017, except for terribel experience from one Resort in Munnar. I thought it would not be appropriate for me to keep away from writing a review about one of the Resorts in which I stayed. I had just glanced through the reviews in TripAdvisor. After visiting the resort, I called my...

It was just an average resort. In rainy seasons its little witty in nature. Its very hard to find if your driver do not know the place. Breakfast was very good but paid dinner was not. Reaching resort an adventurous task.

We stayed at Woodpecker resorts for two nights. We were met by a friendly staff. The check-in process was easy and they were able to make adjustments to our room requirements. (The in-hotel rates are much higher than the OYO rates!!). The rooms were very nice and in general well-maintained. There was not much of a view from the resort;...

This is not at all a resort. No proper food. We ordered food and had to wait for 2 hours to reach us. We lost our hunger by that time. When asked, they said that there is some difficult situation in the kitchen. We noticed that there was only one server. I am sure that there would have been only...

Except for the route, the 6km drive through jungle to the resort, I liked every thing else. The staff was very good and the rooms were good. The break fast was very good. Overall a very nice experience

We booked via Oyo for a weekend getaway while be were staying at Kerala. The room was spacious and was very clean and was value for money while we stayed there.

Calling themself as Resort is a BIG LIE. Its nowhere near to be a resort. I had been here with my friends by booking from OYO rooms.
