Myself with my wife, in-laws and my dog Banjo, stayed at Ananda Beach Home from Nov.16th to 18th. From the moment we arrived at the resort, Mr.Thomas, the manager and other staff welcomed us and showed us our rooms.
Ananda Beach Home located away from main Alappuzha town, but right on the beach. I could see no other resorts around except a small fisherman village nearby. Though sea is very rough, the beach is relatively clean. It is not a good idea to venture deep into the sea here. The rooms consist of a small but comfortable balcony overlooking the sea. Although the rooms are small, it feels cozy and comfortable. Important aspect of the room is the open air bathroom!. However, most of the bathroom fittings ware either leaking or badly stained. We preferred to have bath by felling buckets. Biggest let down in this resort is the badly washed, dirty and stained bath towels. We were forced to use our own bath towels.
I must admit there are very limited choice of food variety, but it is more than compensated by yummy homely Kerala food cooked by a lady Malayali cook. Full marks to excellent room service and house keeping.
On the final day of our stay, our train was scheduled to depart at 5 Pm, but we had booked our rooms for only 2 nights. We were supposed to vacate the rooms by 11 Am. We requested the resort owner to allow us to stay till 3 Pm, he readily agreed and allotted one room!.
Overall we enjoyed our stay, and wont mind recommending to others, I will take this opportunity to thank all the staff for their excellent service and the owner for considering our request and allowing us to stay more time.
