The location on the cliff top was excellent and the massages in the associated Ayurvedic centre were amazing. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice grounds and great access to a fantastic beach. Food at the hotel restaurant was also very good, though service was quite slow.
No clear invoice was provided at checkout and the extras added up to more than expected.
We've luckily been upgraded (for free) to the Oceano Eco for 1 night. It is less than 100m away from the standard Oceano and has very nice rooms with views to the pool and the sea. The Oceano is, actually, an ayurvedic center with proper doctors, assistant/masseurs, etc... Which we did not know and enjoyed quite well. The place is really worth staying at: the staff is awesome (genuine people) and the environment fantastic (nice garden, nice outdoor decoration). The restaurant is delicious. The first night we had a buffet (which was OK, but nothing special). We hesitated on the next day to eat there, but realized that you can order a la carte...and we ate there for almost each lunch and dinners for all 4 days. Restaurant is also open for non-guests. They also have remote tables facing the sea for more peace or romantic dinners / lunches. The beach is just down the cliff...once you walk down the stairs. They have scooters to rent at very fair price. I forgot my book in my room, and one staff member came to the train station within 10 min after I called, to bring me my book and allow me to catch my train on time....with my book.
Cannot get the WiFi from all the rooms (ours could not). So many people stay in the main entrance to get a signal. The room we got at the normal Oceano was basic (which is fine), but quite humid. We did not stay much in the room anyway.
Staff were just outstanding: friendly, helpful, good sense of humour, etc. etc. Beach is absolutely clean and quite private, just down the 182 steps at the end of the small garden. Other guests provided interesting companionship. We do plan a return visit!
Unfortunately the medicinal aspect of the Ayurvedic treatment sort of backfired on us, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. Otherwise, well, there was nothing we didn't like.
It's a beautiful place and the staff are all friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the birds and squirrels in the garden.
Nothing, it was all fantastic
In general staff is efficient and eager to help. If you prefer peacefulness and a secluded beach then the south cliff is the place to stay. The Loft rooms are airy have a (partial) ocean view.
Can do with more sign boards along the road as non-local taxi drivers would have a difficult time finding the location. But after arrival the reception did have a map detailing the surrounding sights. During my stay another guest complained of an "ant problem". I did find a few ants crawling onto the desk but as I did not have any food in the room, that is of no major concern.
The garten was beautiful, like a paradise! The beach also! Food was great especially when dining alone at a table facing the sea. I would definitely go back (but in another room :)
My room was in a bad position, and it wasn't very clean and there a lot of ants and water coming inside from the window.
poor ,really unimporessed,booked way in advance to get a quality room as shown on intrnt a white loft apartment,when we arrived we were given a really poor quality room overnight after alot of fuss they eventually gave us the one i had booked for but took half a day to get it ,,,fighting for something i had paid for n booked well in advance as a quality place slightly more exopensive than we would have paid except that at this point in the journey i knew we would look forward to some luxery so not all impressed but the man there very kind and helpful staff
The gardens and beach were lovely. Food delicious. Staff very helpful.
No A/C in the rooms - would have been good especially in the evenings. Not possible to get a drink after 10pm.
Everything was fantastic - location, service, local area, food, helpfulness of staff - they really went out of their way to give you what you desired. My 60th birthday was brilliant - great stay there with friends
Loft room was very hot, and would have benefitted from better insulation or even A/C. More sun loungers around the garden or adjacent pool.
I looooved the location, the view, the staff, the beds, the weather, the local people around.....everything! Just Go! Don´t miss it!
Great beach, good pool, forthcoming staff. A very calm place with a wonderful atmosphere
No a/c in the room. Mac charger kills the electricity, although this seems to be the case in all the Kerala.
We stayed in the cheaper ground floor fan room and it was excellent. Nice view of the sea through the beautiful gardens. Room cleaned every day to a high standard. Free water provided. Good on site massages and yoga for a fair price. Plenty of info about the area and trips plus an almost private beach just down the steps. Gorgeous.
Food in the restaurant was very average although only at lunch there. One waiter quite unfriendly compared to other staff. Extortionate rickshaw costs to the restaurants are an annoyance the hotel needs to get under control.
