We had a wonderful stay at El Oceano Beach Villas. We had spent 3 weeks exploring much of India so the peace & quiet at this venue over looking the sea was ideal. The staff were lovely so helpful & obliging, nothing was too much trouble, especially the team in the little beach restaurant. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed at El Oceano villas for 8 days at the end of our India trip. It turned out to be a perfect place to relax after a wonderful Indian experience. We stayed in a beach villa which was clean and comfortable with air conditioning in the bedrooms. It was quiet and and a few yards from the sea. We ate in the small beach restaurant and breakfast and dinner was prepared by Simson and his team. The food was delicious with a good choice. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we became good friends. The management produced a lovely surprise Birthday Cake for my husband, which was a delightful touch We cannot commend all of the staff highly enough as they always went the extra mile, even taking our cards to the post for us. Our stay was truly memorable. Thank you.

We stayed at Coral Villa, just a stone's throwaway from the ocean. Beautiful Mararikulam beach is just a 5-minute tuc-tuc ride away, and the resort itself is perfect for a quiet beach getaway. We tried the spa and I had the best ayurvedic massage ever, for a very reasonable price. The restaurant is excellent, and the staff are very friendly and helpful, without being over-solicitous. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the coral beach house. The House is a period property with an oldy worldy cham. A/C in both bedrooms Great sea front location and views of the evening sunset. Free Tuc tuc service to the main hotel as the 4 beach properties are a 5 minute ride down to the beach. Great restaurant for candle lit dinners in the garden and spa facility. Very friendly staff. willing to go the extra mile to make the stay enjoyable

We stay at Oceano for two nights and really enjoyed our experience. The property provides a very relaxing experience, with villas right on the beach as well inland properties situated in a well kept and lush garden. The staff is very attentive and helped provide a really nice stay there. The rooms are clean, spacious, comfortable and fit in with the environment. And the food was really tasty! Special thanks to the cook, JK who served up some great, authentic dishes and was really hospitable and friendly.
