In Jan 2020, this was our last group ride before the pandemic hit us hard. Overall the stay was good. We booked the all the rooms as we were close to 15 bikers. The guest house is in very calm and peaceful area, where we can spend quality time with friends. For family the same owner has a campus next to this one. It's not that luxurious stay, had all the basic requirements. The place is well kept neat and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and host to meet all our request. They served good homemade food especially the local fish dry roast and the inhouse Kerala breakfast Puttu which I had for the first time.

I stayed at Manshore Guesthouse during my 3 day trip to Kannur last month. I had travelled to Kannur to watch Theyyam festival. I reached out to Manshore Bay Guesthouse to see if they knew the temples in which Theyyam was organized. Nikhil, the owner was very helpful, he figured the temples and different Theyyams that were to be performed during our stay there. I din have much expectations towards the property, but when i reached the place, i was blown away from how simple and effective the property was. The room was sea facing and within 20 meters, we had our own private beach. I was truly happy that we went ahead with this property for stay. The manager Mukundan was quite helpful, arranged a rick, took care of our food and even managed to wake us up for a 2.30 midnight Theyyam performance. We were 2 girls and they made sure we were safe :) That's the biggest plus i guess. The food was super yum and it was made as per request. That said, rooms are decent, well ventilated, washrooms could be kept cleaner, that would be my only suggestion to the owner at this point. My overall experience at Manshore exceeded expectations. I will go back to this property if i visit Kannur again.

We loved our stay at Manshore Bay resort. The room (deluxe double) was fantastic, very clean with a comfortable bed, good air-con and wi-fi. The view from the room and balcony, of the little beach and bay, was amazing. The owner and his family couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. It's a basic place but worth the money, especially if you want to really chill out for a couple of days.

Nice, spacious room on top of the resort. Beautiful views over the coast. Garden for Yoga practice. Food was very good. Variation for breakfast was also very good. Staff attentive. Mike, the manager, was always attentive for our needs. We extended our stay as we felt really comfortable. The way down to the beach is a little risky. In walkable distance there are some other amazing beaches. Overall I can highly recommend. Thanks the Manshore Bay team for having a good time.

If you want to relax and refresh ,far from the hustle bustle of everyday life then this is the place for you. This is one of our favourite place to go to when we want to chill. The beach might not be a very long one but it shall be your own private haven. Mr Sureshappan always tries his best to accommodate whatever wish and fancy you might have. Food was amazing and the hospitality is always top level.

Called at the reception on 1st Dec 2019 at 5 pm and found them to be full of attitude and arrogance when asked the reception about facilities, room size and price of different category of rooms. Was told 'you like it then take it' in a manner to discourage asking any more questions and then slamming the phone even as conversation was on...I wonder what ordeal the guest out there would be facing...at loss of words for such behaviour

This is neither a resort, nor a hotel, as it purports to be in its advertising. It's a poor quality homestay. Yes, it's on the beach, but the water had a brown film on it and rubbish bobbing around when we were there. There is a larger beach close by, but that also had rubbish strewn in the sand and bobbing in the water. Neither were beaches that we would swim at. As for the accommodation: - Our "deluxe" room had patched up (but visible) cracks in the wall, a cupboard full of cobwebs and nowhere else to store anything, 2 single beds pushed together with a very thin mattress and uncomfortable pillows, and a kettle with some Nescafe coffee and sugar (no tea) - The bathroom was very basic, with nowhere to leave anything. - Other than the sheets, nothing else looked or felt clean. - Wifi barely worked in the room. - The thin curtains let the light in all night and we had no privacy if we left them open in the daylight to look at the sea view, so we had to either contend with the child from the next room sticking his face in the window or close the curtain and forego the promised sea view. - The common area also looked and felt unclean. Staff were nice enough, but hardly customer focused. When we tried to pre-order breakfast for 8am (because we had to be somewhere by 10am), they tried to talks us into an 8.30am breakfast instead (because, according to them, 8am didn't work with their timing). Food was as basic and expensive as the accommodation. We were charged 300 rps per person for some fish and a few very small side dishes and cheap samba rice. Breakfast was ok, but slow service at 8am (despite us ordering the night before). We had to ask for tea and then ended up leaving without it because it took too long. No idea why people have rated this property so highly! We got conned by the reviews - think twice before you do too!!

Manshore Bay Resort is in all ways exceeding our expectation and certainly our best hotel / guest house experiences in India (maybe in the world after travelling to 15 plus countries) 1. One of its kind environment - Waking up with sounds of sea waves, private beach, v limited rooms / exclusivity 2. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable host (Nikhil) who helps us plan out our trip (including Theyyam and a Kerlaite wedding). We also have numerous interesting conversations where he shares his culture and insights 3. Super friendly staff (Sucesh, Naveen, Vineeth) who always have a bright smile and keep the resort spotlessly clean. Sucesh was very kind to invite us to his house where we have amazing conversations with him and his wife 4. Delicious food - Nikhil mum cooks one of the best Indian meals I have ever had in my 5 trips to India

After 24 hours flying to India Manshore Bay is a welcome sight. Whilst a challenge to get to by car or taxi, our host Nicholas escorts you the final few hundred metres with a smile and no problem. The hotel is multi-levelled with our room being part of the older building and very suitable for our basic needs, clean, all necessary furniture and facilities, and a real double bed! although the mattress is firmer than at home. We ate Indian food from breakfast to dinner and it was homely, fresh and very very tasty. The staff try very hard and whilst their English isn’t extensive they try, they learn and everything is done with a smile. The hotel can sort anything for you....trains, taxis, recommendations for places to visit, just ask. The beach is small and relatively private and Thottada beach is a short walk away which was empty when we went. The sea is warm and at the moment the swell is quite strong but lovely when you’re in. You can sea the mussel divers daily going about their business, there is plenty of fish life (and also to eat) and we saw a school of dolphins pass by and also some jumping out of the water - so special to see, not your normal sight over breakfast. It is a peaceful place with the quiet only broken by the occasional fishing boat motor and the very infrequent tuk-tuk. Overall this is a friendly, homely place which is slowly upgrading. So don’t come if you want the trappings of big hotels, but do if you want a relaxed time, idle chats, reading on the veranda with cold water or beers, mixing with the locals when out walking and not forgetting swimming in the warm Arabian Sea. Thanks Nicholas, (and his mum the cook) Nevin, Vinny, and the old guy from down the road who also helped.
