Worst ever


I don't have words to describe most annoying experience of our kerla trip ,,, dy lied wd their hotel pics on booking sites ,, its totally against expectations which v have acc. To their pics. Its location is inside, and the way even on entrance there is sewerage kind of naala ,, then there is no one to attend in reception. Room is pathetic ,, I have never seen such a small room and AC is not working ,,, bathroom is in very bad condition even latch is not there. Its kind of betrayal as v can not visit hotel before booking, v rely on booking site, but dy mk us fool, even v have to be there for 2 days But only one night v were able to stay, next morning wdout even having breakfast v checkout dt pathetic place. V are disappointed as v plan the trip and think as dy show in their photos and this is what v got. Very bad experience.

Budget family resorts in Kumarakom, Kerala

Posted 24 May, 2017

When I thought of selecting a destination of my Holiday trip along with my Son who is on vacation from USA in Nov 2012, I opted for Kerala and the famous back water resorts, because it gives an opportunity to stay relaxed from the daily routines of life I stayed in Illikkalam family resort in Kumarakom during November month which ideal to visit Kerala. The resort is on the banks of Vembanad lake and sitting at the porch we can watch the drifting House boats and watch the birds fly during the day and sunset The service is good and food is prepared from their own farm grown vegetables, served at resort and also at the dining hall. The local trips to Bird sanctuary is arranged, houseboat ride is provided by embarking right in front of the resort. Travel arrangements are also provided by management. Internet service also available for visitors but no WiFi facility is available This resort is for the family with kids looking for middle class budgetary range.

Average rooms but good staff

Posted 24 Feb, 2016

Location of the resort is very good. I stayed there with my family. Rooms are very small. Service quality also very basic. But location is wonderful. Food quality is also very average and costly. If any one looking for great location with average service and rooms then they can select this resort One thing I want to say that people of the resort is very honest. On the time of leave we forget to take our one luggage but they called us and give it back to us. So it was really great experience from their side and I like to thank them.
