Jicky's Nest is a few minutes walk from the beach front, so not a bad location at all. The rooms are clean but don't expect great facilities. It's simple and does the job. The service is good but not amazing.

We´ve been at Jicky`s 2 years ago (Garden Bungalow, without A/C) and the stay was great. The bungalow was very spacious and clean. This year we booked the A/C bungalow and at arrival we`ve been shocked how small and dirty the bungalow was. Bedsheets had been stained with black marks, everywhere in the room dirt and dust. A lot of... More

It was a pity we had booked the bungalow in the garden. The bungalow has no good price / quality. It is dark, no daylight because there is no glass in the window and only closed with wooden panels. The airco is not good located. In the night you are blown out of the bed. It is not clean. Not... More

The hotel is not on the cliff itself, thus very quiet. Cliff and beach at 2mn walk. Discrete and gentle staff. Stayed in the main building. Small but convenient rooms with a tiny terrace. Clean. Worth the 1500 INR (though cheaper rooms available) No breakfast of food, but the cliff with dozen of restaurants is so close.

Room was okay, clean enough, but no hot water etc. however we used these guys to do our laundry - it was returned it to us damp which isn't the end of the world, but they ruined 5 of our shirts/ tshirts. They came back with huge navy blue stains all over them which won't come out. Can't wear them... More

We stay 10 days in a quiet cottage non AC well connected with the beach (some steps to go down the cliff).It's not a luxury place but correct. The cleaning was made every day and towels and sheet changed also.The breakfast is correct,and the restaurant also, but the service is very slow if you go at rush time.The beach is... More

We stayed in the larger rooms away from the main building for 4 nights. Whilst there was no air conditioning, there was hot water and mosquito nets. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the staff helpful.

The price is very cheap and the location is excellent for Varkala beaches. However, our room was more like a cell and it wasn't very clean (stains on towels, unclean bathroom, etc). We expected basic but this didn't even meet that requirement and furthermore our room light and fan were also controlled from outside the room so unsuspecting fellow guests... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, very friendly welcome, and staff friendly throughout. We had an upstairs room, which was decent and clean, hot shower, with an area to sit out amongst the palm trees. Only a 2 minute walk to the clifftop path by the beach. It was great to be set back from the cliff path activities when we... More
