This was my first time visit to Alleppey. Overall I stayed in Alleppey in for 4 days and had a great time. I stayed one day in a Houseboat, one day in a beach side resort and the other day in Green Palace Kerala Resort. Out of all these 3 places the best experience was in Green Palace Kerala Resort. There is nothing wrong about this place, everything is just perfect.
Please do keep in mind this place is not exactly in Alleppey, its a few kms away from Alleppey atleast a hour or two journey. Once you reach the place you have to take a boat to get to the resort, this again is provided by the resort staff itself. Once you get into the boat and start reaching the resort, the resort welcomes you with a pleasant view. The staff Sabu & Sunil were the best guys I ever met. Sunil answered each call of mine and within a minute he catered to my needs. I stayed in the River View AC Cottages. There is a small Balcony which overlooks the river and the view is great, The rooms are very spacious.
Yes there are Lizards, Insects, Power issues etc. What else can you expect if the resort is on an Island. When the lights are On in the night they attract insects & that attracts lizards, that's just a food chain. I Avoided all these by doing basic steps, I closed the balcony door after 5 and closed the curtains that made sure none of the insects and lizards came in the room. We had our lunch in the balcony overlooking the river. There is nothing much to do other than enjoying the view in your Balcony as the place is an Island. Please avoid this hotel if you are looking to spend time outside the room, this is typically a place where you will be spending most of your time in the room. However, I did go for a small walk in the evening.
I had a train to catch at 6pm the day I vacated, since the check out time was at 10-11 I had to wait in the railway station for a few hours. I bought this to the staff notice they told me the rooms are empty for the next day and you can stay here untill 3 or 4pm without any extra charge, which was a very good gesture by the staff. Not only this I reached 1 hour before to the check in time.
Things that I liked :
1) Everything. The food, The Staff, The View, The Room
Things that I did not like :
I would highly recommend anyone to stay in this Resort, I will keep visiting this Resort in the future.. Stay more than 2-3 days might be boring as there is nothing much to do around the resort..
