We headed straight for this place on the basis of the excellent review in the Lonely Planet Guide book. Most of the reviews on various websites were all ravingly positive, and all mentioned the owners by name as being part of their great experience. Only one review that we could find noted the fact that there were new owners very...

I sent an email a month in advance to book the penthouse. I even called him because he said the room was free but didn't send me a confirmation email. Then he confirmed the booking on the phone. One day before our arrival I emailed him again to say when we would be coming and first he said he accidentally...

Mandala is right by the sea in a beautiful spot, has clean (ish) simple rooms and is a great place to hang out. HOWEVER - the owner is currently scamming people. I booked a month in advance to stay there and when I arrived the owner claimed I'd made a different request. He managed to give me the rooms he'd...

I stayed here one night and a few days later I had a few hours to kill and came back for no charge. I would Hooghly recommend staying here. The staff are very friendly also. Take out can be delivered and it was incredibly good food.

My friend and I had a very good experience at Mandala Beach House. The ownership recently changed hands and the new owner was very friendly and accommodating. He was making some changes to the property that I think will make the little beach house even more attractive. The rooms were definitely budget but clean and comfortable. We also loved being...

After one of our accommodation options fell through upon arriving in Kerala from Goa we called Mandala and fortunately there was a room available. We took the "Penthouse" which was RP 2000 per night. To be honest the room itself was a bit ordinary for that price compared to other places we had stayed but given it is an absolute...

Our young host was really nice and helpful. Location near beach is nice. Vibes chilled. Room we're in (a double @ 600) is a bit grubby but fine for the money (room fan not ceiling fan - brutally decorated bath room etc). But fine. Would recommend overall!

Dirty an beach dogs everywhere. The only positive thing is the location right in front of the beach (which is dirty as well). The owner is nice but not the most helpful guy we have ever met. The beach in Alleppey is pretty dirty, so the whole town doesn't have a lot to offer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mandala is a small guest house located on a quite part of Alleppey Beach. It has two basic rooms, one bamboo cottage and another cottage with a great view to the beach. We just started our annex property near Mandala and it got upstair rooms with sea view. All rooms are bath attached and three of them with bath tubs. We organize some trips to the sea with fishermen, to the back waters and we also do BBQ on the beach. You can have a comfortable and relaxed stay over here. ... more   less
