“nice place to relax”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

Stayed here in mid Jan for 3 nights (first floor) The staff was good and so was the food.
Like some one mentioned here, the Wi Fi is a problem and it just functioned for some time on the first day.
Could not figure out the complicated shower system so had my bath in the bath tub.
The view of the beach is great from the first floor and you can hear the waves crashing.
Suggestion: Keep some sort of a mini shuttle service from the Hotel to the boat jetty/Chinese net, as getting a rickshaw from the front of the hotel is very difficult and to walk it up, its too long.

Room Tip: The west side rooms have the view of the sea.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a group tour. I know it was selected in part because it was a good price for the amenities. My room was on the ground floor. It was clean, spacious and mostly pretty quiet. The air conditioning was OK but a bit noisy. The bathroom was huge and very stylish, but you definitely need to get instructions for the complicated shower or you it will spray you all over before you get in. Also be clear about when the hot water is turned on in the morning and off at night. The Internet is an issue on the ground level which you have to work around. Charging phones and laptops is a problem because of power outages. Ask the staff to guide you. The grounds are lovely as is the view from the upper balcony. Breakfast is fine. The staff were very nice, no complaints there and I did enjoy my espresso drink offered when we arrived. One of the members of our group had to change rooms because of a chemical smell that irritated her, but they accommodated her nicely. The Chinese fishing nets are not far away but get clear directions or you can walk for a long time in the wrong direction! Exploring is easy via tuk tuk.

Room Tip: Try for the upper floor if you want Internet.

We spent our first night of our honeymoon here. This place was such a treat. Super clean and really friendly staff. We had a garden room which had a nice view of the pool and was nice and spacious. It is a heritage hotel and restored to a fabulously high standard. Beautiful and elegant public area's, spacious bedrooms with great air-con to keep you cool.
Lovely maintained gardens.

Also, Joju was super responsive and helpful over email, which made planning from the US very easy. They arranged our taxi from the airport and the next day to Allepey. We probably paid more than we needed to, but our driver was great and we knew we were in good hands.

Thanks for the staff and manager too.we will come back again::::::::

Room Tip: rooms on the right side

when we arrived at hotel poovath the place was overbooked (while we already paid via internet), so we had to move to a different hotel for 1 night. we wished that we stayed there, because the poovath hotel has bad service, bad wifi, switches off electricity at night so AC turns off and batteries are not charged. above all the hotel serves instant coffee at breakfast despite of the high room rate. the manager sareth only knows 4 english words: "sorry this is complimentary".

I had responded to this review earlier but i don't know why it was not published. Anyway, this time i would rather refrain from a detailed response because this review doesn't deserve one. The previous and next reviews will very clearly clarify the doubts of any viewer about the quality of service and standard of our hotel.
