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

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.
