Bad and rude hosts!!! Bad rooms..the host can’t take any bad review and is foul mouthed! If you are going and dont want unnecessary tension and harassment give them good reviews! 😃 They asked me not to visit again and I will totally oblige! After all they dont want me to suffer. They torture you only once and then will help you by asking you to not cone again. Thank you!

Nice place with friendly staff and nice vibe in general let down by couple of points. Firstly on booking.com it said air conditioning is optional at extra charge but both rooms we stayed in didn’t have that option. That needs to be corrected on booking.com. Quite a big deal when it’s 33 degrees. Next problem was that on checkout payment , as what has happened in a few Indian places they told me I had to pay in my home currency. Firstly this is illegal under MasterCard registration. The customer has to have option of local currency. When telling them I didn’t want to pay in pounds they told me I could choose ruppees after I entered my pin. This is simply wrong as by that point and as per my receipt I had a “mark up 3.5%” added to my charge for the conversion which I didn’t want. They said some rubbish about how it doesn’t matter and it’s a good rate and then they said how their bank rates are bad or something and how this bank Axis does this. This is totally untrue . And anyway, which one is it ? Is it you don’t like charges or there’s no choice and it’s good for me anyway? I find it massively disingenuous for an establishment that prides itself on being friendly and open to westoners to use a system sneakily to make more money and misinform the customers. If u want to charge me more for using a card, let me know that’s the case. don’t lie to me about you having to charge in my home currency because your bank in India won’t let u charge ruppees. Absolute nonsense. It’s complete lies and scam basically . Really sad that the German Indian owner lady tries this absolute lies . Shameful really deceiving customers. Most people, if not all, won’t even notice what’s happened but they need to stop getting away with it .

Sorry you fraud, you are misjudging and wrongly accusing us! We gave you the choice and you made the choice! Did you forget about it? We have the prove on the slip signed by yourself! Talk to your bank before you misjudge me personally and my business! I already sent you the prove, check your mails and think before you misjudge people in public! Your behaviour is disgusting and you should be ashamed! Also we do have the option for AC rooms, unfortunately you only got our last room without AC, means the option for AC was simply not available anymore. We were sending you a detailed message about your chosen room category and even when you checked in we explained again that in this low budget category there is only a ceiling fan available. We offered you an upgrade in case a booking gets cancelled! Do you remember? Think or ask first before you write nonsense about wrong details in the listing! Your entire review is misjudging and therefore rubbish!

I stayed for a night at this property and the only plus is its location. I booked room which is listed as twin room with terrace, hoping I will get my own private terrace or balcony - but I was given a ground floor room. When I asked about the terrace, the guys said the building has a terrace which I can use. The room and bathroom were neat and clean. Mind you, there is no AC in the room and it can get quite hot during the night considering the Kerala climate. You are paying almost 4000+ rs and there is not even mineral water kept in the room or no breakfast included. Hence I felt the price you pay is not really worth it even though they claim it is because of the season. The road to this place is difficult to find and dont rely on google maps. Also if you have an SUV, you may land in trouble and have to park outside. The only advantage is the accessibility to the cliff which is right infront. (doesn't mean you have a beach/cliff view). We visited their cafe, NOMAD for breakfast. Nice staff and nice ambience, but exorbitant prices. 2 boiled eggs will cost you 160 rupees! Choose this place only when the rates of room are well below 2000 rupees! Not happy at all.

Response from nomadamcoco, Owner at Mad about Coco
Responded 13 Jan 2020
Dear RSV99, thank you for reviewing us but we actually have some doubts that you were staying at all in Mad about Coco. 1. Absolutely all of our 15 rooms have a Balcony on the upper floors and terraces/ verandas on ground floor. There is not one single room coming without a private hangout outdoor area equipped with hanging chairs lounge sofas, tables and clothes racks. it's not possible to not seeing them as you are entering the room on ground floor from the furnished terrace/ veranda. 2. We offer in various common areas on our property free water refill stations where you can get as much free drinking water as you want. For that service we are offering a glass bottle in every room. 3. Breakfast is included when you pay for it in advance. 4.For our non-AC rooms we had in December a maximum rate of 3500/- per night, including breakfast 5. The location is perfectly set with GPS on Google maps and even trucks can enter our property where we are offering up to 3 parking slots for cars and more than 10 bikes/ scooter. We are one of a very few properties in Varkala offering parking facility. We even offered you to book your space in advance. 6. When you compare our rates with most of the neighbour houses with less facilities and lower standard then a rate below 4000/- in the Christmas/ New Year's Season in the prime location is a great deal. The rent we pay for the two Guesthouses and the huge Restaurant in the absolute prime location with sea view, salaries for 30 employees and the electricity bills are exorbitant, but Eggs with Butter and Brown Bread for 160rs are actually not! When this is too much for you we suggest to stay at home, especially in the most busy and expensive time of the year - all over the world! Your Mad about Coco Team
