This is only a small place in a quiet location over a road from the beach. We couldn't fault it. Poly and jessy the owners were really nice. But for me what made our stay here was the 4 members of staff who did all the waiting on guests, the food was very good rooms were clean, they couldn't do enough for us. As alcohol is a bit hard to get in Kerala and the hotel is not licensed to sell it. SAM the head waiter used to jump on his scooter and fetch it for us. He even arranged for a tuk tuk driver to take us into town to a shop where we could get spirits. All the staff were really friendly and very attentive. We only stopped here 2 nights as we were travelling around Kerala. We did return to have a meal and say our goodbyes. Thank you Sam and the other 3 lads who I can't remember there names for a really nice stay at the Cherai beach residency you were BRILLIANT. I can't praise you up enough, hope to see you again sometime.
