We did not get the chance to stay in this location because even though we had a booking number from our tour agent, the owners of Marari told first there is no reservation on our names, and then they changed their minds saying there was a reservation, but they did not receive the payment. We paid for beach front room, instead they offered a workaround, with rooms faar from the beach, small and not at the same value as the one we've booked (around 6500 INR). The disappointment came with the fact the lady who owns the place did not even wanted to talk to our agent, she was passing the responsibility to us, and making us the intermediates. We believe this is not they way customers shall be treated. As a customer, after spending 10 hours getting there, the last thing I need is to be the one talking to both the owner and the agent to get us stay in the room we've booked. In the end we had to search for another hotel at 10 pm since they kept changing their minds, saying next day they will give us the room we've booked, to the fact they don't have it available at all. My expectation was to get a room at the same value, not less.Hope nobody will go though this again.

We stayed here for 2 nights in an AC room on the first floor. The room was big and the balcony was nice with a lovely view of the sea. However, the price of the room was quite high considering that a lot of the room was quite run down and in need of a facelift / clean. The property itself is set back about 50 metres from the beach, but has a clear view with just a few palm trees in the way. The rooms are big, with plenty of cupboard space. The AC and fan were both very good. (The non-AC rooms only have a standard desk fan, but may be better value for money) The balcony is shared with the neighbouring room, but there’s a nice little wooden divider you can pull across to give you a bit of separation. We were lucky not to have neighbours when we stayed, and so were able to book private yoga teacher to teach us on our balcony. Jasmine, her family and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. However, it wasn’t great value for 3,500. We were fine with the room and don’t mind a bit of rust and dust around a place. But it’s only since we’ve stayed in 4 or 5 other places around Kerala that we realised how expensive this place was for what you get. As it was the first place we went to we didn’t know otherwise. The floor and bedding etc were perfectly clean, but other things like the ceiling fan and bathroom windows were caked with dust. We think it’s probably one of the higher end places to stay in Marari as all the other places we walked past on the beach looked more basic. (Apart from the big expensive resort) And there isn’t as much competition in Marari, so that may be why prices are higher. There wasn’t any food available in the evenings so we walked to their friend’s restaurant which is about a 7 min walk towards the main road, but after that we went to places along the beachfront. Overall, we had a nice stay in a very nice spot on Marari Beach. Just adjust your expectations downward if you’re expecting something you could get for 3,000 in another part of Kerala.

We had a lovely week on Marari Beach as usual, it is definitely one of our favourite holidays spot. But having tried different options around throughout the years, we are not that green anymore when it comes to accomodations and activities. So, we loved the location, and looking at the ocean from our bed. But we were disappointed at several things such as the overall value for money. The shower was dripping a few drops and termperature of the water was always very unsure. The A/C and the Wifi were pretty much of the same sort, working for one hour then out of function for a long while, I understand this is the beach side, this is Kerala, this is India. But with a certain price comes a certain level of service. And there it was all to the minimum. On top of that we constantly felt like being a bother. From the day we booked and had troubles having answers to our simple questions from Austin, until the day we left and felt a bit like everyone was releived, which we never felt anywhere else before... Last comment: the front of the house is a bit of garbage, a bit of firepit, a bit of laundry drying place and is not at all what you would expect from a place where once again you pay 60€ a night for basic service but supposedly a splendid view. It does actually sort of ruin it. All in all we had a great time because we were so happy to be back to that place we love that is Marari, but it could have been a whole lot better.

This is a great place. It's bang on the beach and the rooms are overlooking the sea. Try to book the first floor rooms for better view and privacy. We did that but due to some communication gap with travel agent we ended up in the ground floor room. Still not many regrets. The veranda was a great place to sit relax, read a book, look at the sea or the coconut trees. It's a breezy lovely veranda. The host couple Austin and Jasmine make you feel very comfortable. Simple and good breakfast. On request Jasmine and her mother will cook you a delicious dinner as well. We stayed for just one night. If we get another chance we will start longer on one of the first floor rooms.
