Hi all, We stayed at Jickys for a few nights in April of 2014, and had a really great time exploring the area, and really enjoyed the good location of our accomodation, Jickys. On our fifth night we had been silly enough to keep our valuables on the table with the window open and had them stolen while we were... More

The room is basic fan, mosquitoes net (very useful) ,nice bed and a small balcony. There is in room Wi-Fi. Hot water is there, but it is not available in the shower only from the tap so you have to use the bucket. The hotel is 4 minutes from the cliff on a path with poor lighting . We felt... More

Stayed here 3 nights, very happy with our room, we had a fan and mozzie net. Nice seating area outside the room, also with a fan over it which was good at keeping the bugs away when sitting outside in the evening. Close to all the restaurants etc but set slightly back so nice and quiet in the evening, felt... More

Lovely stay, clean room and good price for time of year. Room was perfect and comes with mozzie net and fan – two mins walk to main strip. Very helpful and can arrange taxi trips if needed. Thank you!

We has a cottage which was nice enough but very expensive, as we looked around Varkala we found much nicer places much cheaper because they weren't on Trip Advisor or in the Lonely Planet. My advice is don't bother using web portals to book your accommodation, our experience so far has meant every place on TA or other booking websites... More

Comfy bed (which is hard to find in Kerala). A great mozzie net (which was needed). Room was small but clean and well decorated. Free filtered water dispenser. No hot water but a good shower. Good location 2 mins to the beach. Can't fault it, I paid 1300rs through Agoda.

Stayed for one night, then upgraded and went elsewhere in Varkala. Room was 1,000Rs, fan (no A/C), double. Very basic room. Mozzy net provided. Sheets stained, so slept on sleeping bag liners. Room felt sandy-dirty - ie like it's never been (or going to be) clean. No hot water. Short walk to south end of beach / cliffs. Convinced that... More

Jicky's is run by a helpful and friendly family. The rooms are clean although our room was on the small side. I felt it was excellent value. The toliet paper and filtered water were free. We were never pressured to do any tours or Ayuvedic massages which was certainly a relief! It is less than a 5 minute to the... More

We stayed here for five days for 600 rupes per night. Had a lovely view of the garden and just a short walk to the cliff and the start of north cliff restaurants. The room was clean with mosquito net. No hot water though. A great place to stay in Vakala and just off the main route.
