Service
Value
("The Island of Coconuts"), a unique heritage resort cosseted by a coconut grove, residing on the banks of the river Poovar, at the juncture where the tranquil river embraces the roaring Arabian sea!. The resort is virtually encircled by water. Here nature offers you her bountiful best - a riverbank, a beach, lakes, ponds and backwaters. Look out from the resort , and you see the river beyond which is the delightful private beach and yonder, the sea. If you dream of relaxing in a heritage room or lying on the beach, lulled by the sound of waves and the rustling of palm fronds stirred by tropical trade winds, then Isola Di Cocco is just right for you.

We reached the location at 4:30 PM on 28-March and requested for a boat trip during check-in but at 5 PM, we were told that due to high tide warning the public boats (public boats run by various union) were not available, we then went to the reception stating we saw boats with passengers, and we were told they were private boats. We had come to the resort from so far just to see the natural beauty of the backwaters. We were also told that boat service can be requested only before 4:45 PM (which we did at the time of check-in) or after 8 AM next day(it becomes quite warm in summer esp. at the beach). Later we realized that the all the public boats (run by the unions) were running as normal. Near the swimming pool (where they drop and pick up passengers), the boats were accepting passengers directly (with reduced rate as compared to what was mentioned by the resort management). The boat drivers even mentioned that they pick the guest till 5:30 PM and can pick up at 6AM as well(if requested directly with them earlier). The boat drivers were giving the service as usual on that day. We ended up just roaming around the hotel. We even met few people inside the resort who had mentioned that they took the boat service at 5:15 PM. Please also note that the bathroom/toilet/restroom in their heritage villa is open which is not mentioned in their website. The service from all other staffs were good except the reception manager. As the main purpose of the visit did not materialized, we were utterly disappointed by the unprofessional behaviour.

Very beautifully located by the dramatic Arabian Sea and mangroves a perfect place to rest and recover after long travels. Buffet breakfast and dinner was varied and plentiful. Rooms were beautifully cleaned daily by Bhindi who made us some lovely towel sculptures. Housekeeping supervisor Praveen was very attentive and we had lovely chats with him. The Ayurvedic hospital gave us super massages - unforgettable experience- so oily!!! We also had a Balinese massage at the spa which was delightfully energising and relaxing. Thank you to jobe who helped us select our treatment. Everyone is friendly. Sageeta at the front desk even helped me with making a payment. We were very happy with our stay. We loved taking an afternoon tuk tuk to poovar town for a coffee and look around and chat with shopkeepers. The birds and nature around the resort are lovely to watch too.

Compared to other hotels on our tour this was most disappointing. Had 3 days at the end of our stay. Didn’t see many smiles from staff. Food plentiful, although restaurant didn’t have an inviting atmosphere. We had to keep asking about facilities, communication could have been better, a folder in reception, booklet or folder in your room. We made the most of our stay, boat trip down the mangrove, visit to the ‘sand island’ seen from the hotel, tuk tuks to Poovar & Kovalam are a great experience. Special mention to Sheela at the therapy hospital for the tentative massage (thank you)

This hotel has the most beautiful grounds but sadly the staff are the most miserable I've come across. This was the last stop on a 2 week tour and up to this point, every hotel has been great. We endured 2 nights in a row of violent fights with staff in the restaurant, and they refused to call the police. It was traumatic with young children witnessing awful scenes. Waiters were only interested in Indian guests. We were refused late check out, despite the hotel being empty and they would not budge. Showers and toilet by the pool disgusting and our room needed a proper deep clean. Nothing at all to commend this hotel other than the gardens. Our other 6 hotels have been great so we are not complainers usually.

I liked this hotel a lot. The location, the staff, the views, the food, the cleanliness and the facilities were all spot on. We were upgraded to a room with a private pool which was a lovely touch. The rooms were beautifully equipped and more like a small apartment than a hotel room. The grounds were immaculately maintained and the pool area by the restaurant was fantastic with the best shaded areas and sun beds out of the 5 hotels we stayed in. Unlike most hotels, they had an area where you could sit and have a beer or wine taking in a wonderful view of the inland waterways over to the beach that was reachable via a short water taxi ride. The yoga studio overlooking the inland waterways was an inspiring place to to a bit of early morning exercise and like most other hotels, there were plenty of mats. A lovely hotel that we would definitely return to.

1) Rooms are good and big 2) location - you will be lost 3) Being a 5 star proeprty, iron broad and iron was missing 4) They will give slipper and shaving kit on asking. They should be kept in room itself 5) Breakfast - not able to cook north indian properly - service is just worst - need to ask multiple times for live dosa and hot parantha 6) Swimming pool - awesome 7) Take more time to spend in resort other then spending a night only - resort is worth exploring Tips : Please spend ample time here in resort. Can't reach by public transport, only accessible via private vechile being located in remote area.

This was our last property on an organised tour with driver on a bed, breakfast and evening meal package. Can't comment on value etc. Drive up to the property is interesting - poorly maintained roads, lots of rubbish around but that is prevalent, unfortunately. Security guards on entrance - not offputting. Building is beautiful - wood, porticoes, lofty roof space etc. Lots of bungalows and mixture of accommodation - some newer than others. Grounds are well kept, some very pretty plants and grasses. We had heritage room 29 - again, heavy on the wood interior, no windows, little light but very good air con. Outside toilet and bathroom was a surprise but usable. Seen better days, to say the least, and outside sitting space, practically unusable - would have preferred a balcony - but don't know what our operator actually paid for room. Service good - overall. A little slow in areas, but could benefit from more staff. On first day, I had booked a massage - but couldn't find location and was mis-informed by a number of staff - I think this was a mix up in communication and error on my part. However, used the large pool area overlooking the sea - beautiful location, excellent pool, sunbeds tired and not the most comfortable, but located 2 in the shade with pool towels. Bit disappointed with some of the European guests who seemed to have 2 sunbeds, 1 at each pool - very greedy and selfish. Food was buffet style, although some appeared to be offered a la carte. Okay, not hot but that was because again a lot of the guests just left the serving trays open etc. This was the worse fare offered during our stay but overall, acceptable. We had to ask for bottled water but was given it. We were not ill during our stay which was a bonus for us. On the second day, hotel ordered us a tuk tuk into town (5 mins) and he charged us 200 Rupees. On our return we hailed one from the street, who charged us 50 Rupees for a longer journey. When we raised this with the hotel we were told it is because they are in a union. I had my massage on the second day too - I didn't know what to expect and although a surprise (I won't reveal any further), I was due another free massage which I declined, so consider for yourselves. Others within the complex were loving their experiences. The setting is beautiful and was obviously a place of splendour. It is tired now, and would benefit from further investment and refurbishment.. One thing to comment upon is the spectacular birdlife - sea eagles (brown and white headed) are resplendent and offer their very own aerial displays - literally 15 feet away from you. I would have paid for this show alone. We also saw kingfishers and an owl. There were also a couple of very cheeky squirrels present too. We only saw 2 cockroaches although a neighbour very noisily objected to the frog she was sharing the shower with. Lucky her. In terms of noise, this was very disappointing for us. No privacy between our rooms and noisy neighbours. Also, there was a hindu festival at the local temple and throughout our stay, overnight, there was chanting, very noisy drums and generally disturbance to a level, which affected our sleep. For this reason alone, we wouldn't return or recommend. Also, can't comment upon the value of the hotel as we don't know what the operator actually paid.

We stayed at this accommodation by sheer coincidence. We were not able to stay at our booked accommodation due to its poor state and booked this hotel 30 minutes before arrival. We were accomadated at the Ayur Deluxe rooms. The venue is typical Kerala backwater themed ayurvedic resort. The staff were courteous and friendly. Please take time to walk around the resort, enjoying the river, ponds, and beach views. We had access to a pool in front of our room, and river bank was around 100 meters from the room. Very peaceful, quiet place with a good restaurant. The rooms are old but kept clean. Access roads to the hotel are not in great state.
