We stayed 2 nights at El Paradiso. The room was comfortable with a reasonable bathroom. What was really nice was the balcony outside the room. It's close to everything in Thekkady and also to Periyar National Park which is why we were there. We didn't eat breakfast there although it is available as some really nice cafes close by.

I have stayed at this clean and tidy Homestay before, and had a great time. This time, however, the proprietor was extremely rude, refusing to accept he had made a mistake about losing my visa and refusing to look for it, saying I hadn't given it to him. He reiterated this a number of times and ended up shouting. I...

We were four girls traveling, stayed 2 nights in El paradiso. We've done the reservation by email. The rooms are nice, clean, quite and affordable. Elyas and his wife are adorable. The breakfast is good: toasts, butter, jam, bananas, eggs, coffee/tea. There's hot water. There are swings in front of the rooms and free wi-fi.

Our room was clean and neat. The owners were very hospitable. They were always home to answer questions for us or if we needed them for anything. The food was good. Excellent location with the ability to walk into town safely for shopping and food. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this homestay in Thekkady.

This makes me feel perfect homestay. Location is also very good in the city. All sightseeing places are within 3-4km. Hotel rate is also budgetary. Though they don't have any restaurant, you can take lunch in any other restaurant in walking distance.

El-Paradiso is perfect for good home stay. The owner is very friendly. Hospitality is too good. The hotel is maintained by family. We checked-in around 1AM and the entire family was there at reception to receive us. The rooms were completely clean, neat and too spacious with large balcony. There were no AC(obviously not needed). Only breakfast is provided and...

El Paradiso is on the street of homesteads in Kumily, which makes it just a short walk from the Periyar office and the town's shops. It's clean, the road is quiet, and our room cam with a nice private balcony with chairs, table, and a swinging seat dangling from the roof. The shower was great. On the negative side, breakfast...
