Pros: The location is amazing: quiet, well maintained, well lit at night to walk the pathways to the villas. Wonderful friendly staff. Room and bathroom are spacious and clean. A restful place.
Cons: The diner menu could have had more choices.
Cons: I didn’t like breakfast
Pros: The Palmyra House provides a very relaxing stay. The rooms are a good size with large windows that provide natural light. Comfortable seating is offered outdoors. The water in the outdoor pool is pleasantly warm and clean. Meals are offered at a covered but open setting - it is quite a nice area. Although the menu is limited, it offers variety and nice tasting food. The staff are polite and very accommodating to all the guest’s needs.
Cons: Communication with the property was challenging when I attempted to book online directly with Palmyra House. Their online forms did not provide accurate information. As a result we made the booking through booking.com which was a much smoother process.
Pros: Staff are welcoming and genuine. The setting is beautiful and tranquil. Facilities stunning and clean. Great stay in Munnar.
Pros: Incredible place Luxury and charm at world's end Amazing birds and nature
Pros: Palmyrah house is a very nice place to explore the Mannar area. Surprised with the gym! The staff and the manager were very nice and helpful; we highly recommend it.
Cons: Obviously there is nothing anyone can do about it, but the amount of flies became extremely disturbing, specially during meals.
Pros: This is our 2nd visit to The Palmyrah House. Pleasantly surprised by the huge improvements to the place since our 1st visit 2 1/2 years ago. Rooms are spacious and comfortable , Service is excellent, staff very helpful and polite. Peace and Quiet. Lovely place to relax far away from crowds. Beautiful unspoiled and crystal clear beaches a little off this place . Resident GM Udaya is extremely knowledgeable and helpful of places to see around the area, and about bird life. Loved seeing the Migrant birds and Flamingos on our 1st Visit unfortunately our 2nd visit was not during the Migratory season informed that November - January is the best time to see the birds. Nonetheless enjoyed our stay .Hope to visit again sometime .
Pros: Beautiful hotel in a nice location. Rooms were very spacious and lovely large balcony
Cons: On arrival there was very little 'welcome'. No welcome drink which is very unusual here. Within minutes of entering the room the staff member told us there would be an additional room charge for the children. Having lived in Sri Lanka for many years we are used to sharing the room with our children and would of course expect to pay for their breakfast. We have never been charged a room fee for the children. When we questioned this and asked what they were getting in the room for the fee we were told we would need to speak to the General Manager. When we spoke to him we found him to be very unaccommodating. One child with dietary requirements is normally not expected to pay as he does not eat the hotel food. When we told the Manager this he kept telling us it was hotel policy and there was nothing he could do about it. So one family paid an extra 40 dollars for the room fee. We found the Managers attitude to be quite rude and unhelpful. The food was of a basic standard and we were told to order dinner on arrival and breakfast at dinner time. The food was already on the table when we came to dinner and was by then cold. At numerous times the hotel manager quoted hotel policy as a reason for not being flexible. We would have hoped that they would have been more willing to value customer satisfaction. It is a shame that they are seemingly taking advantage of being the only quality hotel in Mannar.
