We booked the romantico villa for three nights as MAP plan. Over all very good experience! Location is perfect, food was at accepta level.(Food as such was nice but they served it cold! I asked them about it but the problem remains till last!) of course on request you get hot stuff but Buffy spread is cold only. Room was big,full of modern amenities and gives full satisfaction. Only issue is with the jacuzzi- The location for the jacuzzi was fantastic but as earlier reported by some of fellow trip adviser members, the hot water was not in enough quantity.(It runs cold after filling up the tub by 25%, It takes at least 30 minutes to heat the water in the heater and when it gets ready the water in the tub gets cold!) after struggling with this either you lose your interest in it or you lose your pesons! I asked the person through whom I booked the stay(Mr.Rasheed at main office, Cochin) before finalizing the booking, and he assured me that the problem was resolved and there won't be any problem now! And it happened in spite of this clarification. But again the view that this particular villa offers, is unique and is the best in this property(Room no.306). So if one can ignore the inconvenience offered by jacuzzi, they can enjoy thoroughly.
About getting there- We hired a ford figo from ZOOM cars,bangalore(A self driven car option available in banglore) this car was very good and served our purpose nicely. But I feel that without own car/taxi there can be lack in enjoyment! As the location of this property is quite remote and one without car can feel he has become handicapped! GPS assisted map application is very useful in this area. As if you are not use to malyalam, then there are very few who can help you!
Sight seeing- Not much of the sight seeing is around but property it self can be the sight! and if one really wants to go around then there are few lakes and falls(Which are closed by this time of the year!).
Places of interest- We visit to pukket lake and banasura sagar dam. Both are worth visiting. We came across a wonderful tiny restaurant called 'Coffey grove' near wytheri they served really nice food. We opted for kerla paratha and fresh green peas masala both the items were classy! (The tag line of this place is 'WE SERVE FRESH' and they really do!
