We stayed two nights and had a really lovely stay. Mini Oscar was kind and accommodating. We had initially booked a INR 3500 room because her less expensive rooms were booked, but by the time we arrived there was a cheaper one available and she had it ready for us. The rooms were a totally decent size with lovely hand... More

Very lovely, definitely stay here if you go to Varkala beach, it's cheap and clean and practical. The rooms are such good value and pretty, the beds are comfy, fans and hot water in the bathrooms. Yoga in the mornings on the roof! Short walk to Coffee Temple - best place for breakfast and good coffee - at last!! Highly... More

We booked on line with hotel.com for £116,(3 nights) but when we saw the room we decided not to stay here, it was very expensive for a very small basic room in a scruffy garden with no views or a nice place to sit. It might suit some people but it was very over priced (on line at least) .... More

We arrived at Jicky's with a booking for one night that we immediately changed to 3 and then later to 5 nights. Our room was a good size, very clean and white with an attached bathroom with cold shower, plenty of windows and access to a shared balcony. The marble floors help keep it cool as does the fan.

It's a very good budget hotel to stay. I stayed there for one night in Standard double room. Located in a nice location very close to north cliff of Varkala. Room is good as per the budget. It has a nice mosquito net above the bed. There will be lot of mosquito if you open the window, so you have... More

Our stay at Jickys was a perfect start for our Indian holiday. Our room (cottage) was clean and spacious, and the garden was beautiful. The location is great - there's only a quick walk to the cliff and main beach. The staff was extremely helpful, and helped us with getting our missing luggage back from airport. There's nothing to complain... More

Very quiet and peaceful place, extremely good service and fair location - not directly near crowdy walkway, but close enough (2 minutes walk) to the beach. You can rent a private scooter for just 300 Rs and go wherever you want. You can also leave your backpack and go for a longer trip. Just visit Varkala, check-in at Jicky's and... More

Good clean budget accomodation. Inexpensive set of rooms run by friendly staff. Very close to cliff and beach but no sea view. A torch is useful at night for dark path. Arranged transport from airport for competitive rate. Recommend highly.

Location is just behind the taxi stand at the helipad situated on the South cliff area. The cliff is a minute walk and within 15 min you can reach the black beach or 5 min for the central beach. Room and bathroom clean. Came with a useful mosquito net over the bed. Prices are reasonable but but better value could... More
