Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great overall experience with excellent service
We booked into the Serenity houseboat as part of tour package. The pick up and transfer to the house boat was easy and great- the room provided was comfortable and clean and so also the bathroom. The boat itself was spacey for our family and had 3 areas to sit and view the scenery - front of boat on min floor - the middle area where we also ate (very comfortable sofas and dining chairs) and a 3rd option at the very top (slightly hard to get to) - very clean and comfortable. Arun was the chef and Bishal the main helper - they were very helpful with our requests on anything - the food options were broad and quality of food was great- lunch was HUGE (including local fish and chicken) apart from vegetarian options - we asked them to reduce items for dinner and breakfast - good quality food - snacks and chai were also excellent. The boat went through some channels and them cruised on the lake - we came back to the starting spot and spent the night on the boat - went for a short cruise after breakfast and returned. My only criticism was that I had imagined us cruising more through the channels and maybe docking at the different spot and return but I should have researched more - overall excellent experience (and unique).

Allepey houseboat tour
The worst experience and was a big disappointment. They are very good at scamming tourists who comes from far to stay in their houseboats. They do not value customers money and time. We have booked for the entire day and night, but since they themselves were late to pick us up from the port, we missed watching the best view as they need to stop their boat exact at 5pm. They picked us up from the port at 3:45pm, and gave a very short tour in the backwaters and didnot take us to the spot where we can see the sea and backwaters together. I will never recommend this houseboat to anyone. They willl never achieve success by frauding customers. SHAME ON YOU!!!!

NOt Happy
booked deluxe 1 bedroom houseboat but its comes out in worst experience . Room bathroom not clean . Room doesn't have any cupboard or table to keep our small things like bottles watches mobiles . Room doesn't have lock , no hot water in the mornings . Evening snacks is also offered in limited only 1 plate for 3 adults . Bathrooms were stinking.The only best part i enjoyed is the alleppy beach which is outside the boat . Rest on houseboat over night stay is not recommended.

Great Clean Boat & Great Service!
We were a group of 8, touring Kerala from Canada in Jan 2020. Arrived at the pick up point and the boat was there in 5 minutes. The four bedroom boat looked way bigger than all the other houseboats docked at the pick up point. We were welcomed in by Kalesh and crew with cool tender coconuts. The rooms were all super luxurious, clean and had air conditioning going already. Morning, we were taken around narrow lakes, shown the local life and then docked for lunch. The lunch was a mix of great tasting traditional dishes all thanks to the friendly and humble Chef Vidyadharan. The chef was kind enough to give us a quick tutorial on making Kerala style crab roast. The boat docked at a local Toddy shop during the rounds and we got to taste fresh toddy too. The whole crew was very accommodating of all our additional requests. The houseboat was docked around 5.30 PM local time and we got to see some fireworks on our way to the docking area - agreed that was the best way to end a perfect day. Dinner was served later that night, the food was delicious and there was so much of it. Breakfast was great the next day morning with both continental and traditional options. There was traffic on our way back to the drop off point which was also a great site. Overall, great experience - giant - clean boat and friendly staff. I would absolutely recommend this if you are planning for a house boat vacation in Kerala.
