The main bonus of Jicky's is the manager, who is just lovely. He was extremely helpful, and super friendly. He chatted to us for ages, and made us feel like we were his friends more than his guests. Jicky's is in the perfect location, a couple of minutes walk to the beach and yet tucked away out of sight and...

Stayed here overnight and i absolutely liked the place. quiet and laid back. the manager, Nijad, is a wonderful person. he is very helpful, jovial and an ardent ManU fan! the place is a few minutes walk to good eatries and shops and just on the clifftop. and if you enjoy paintings there's an art gallery right by Jicky's which...

Stayed three weeks, it was lovely. Clean and cozy and most important: no bugs! I enjoyed having a bathroom with hot water and a only 2 minutes walk to the cliff. Nijad the manager is a very nice and helpful person who knows where to get ripe Jackfruits or knows where you can see and pet sweet puppies. :)

Lovely place to stay. Chilled out, laid back. Off beaten track but a couple of minutes to restaurants, shops etc on cliff top and beach. Basic accommodation but overall atmosphere fantastic. I rented small bungalow with terrace. My own little house. Loved it. Clean with HOT running water. A huge plus. Nijaad the young manager is lovely, helpful and charming....

We had a great four days at Jickys - made better by the manager Nijad. He was so helpful and kind AND a Manchester Utd supporter which delighted my husband as I don't think he has ever met anyone as passionate and knowledgeable about the team as he is himself! Jickys is a 2 minute walk from the cliff/beach -...

We had booked after seeing the good reviews here but were a little disappointed. Although relatively cheap it was very basic with only the most minimal facilities. The room looked like it needed a good coat of paint. We were given one of the cottages and it might that rooms in the main building are better but this one definitely...

Stayed for 1 night while travelling around Kerala and Jicky's was our favourite. Clean rooms and accommodating staff. Jicky's is in a great location and a great price. Beautiful paintings on the walls, mosquito nets and a big book exchange. I would definitely go back.

Stayed here for a week and enjoyed it. We stayed in a spacious bungalow overlooking a calm little garden. Friendly staff, the guy in charge even invited me to his house when I asked him where I could see a Premier League game. Also, really good yoga on the rooftop!

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of weeks and could have stayed longer. The rooms were very clean on arrival and staff offered to clean the room on a number of occasions throughout our stay for no additional cost. The hotel is located in a secluded area but is only a two minute walk away from the beach and...
