I was there with my husband last week for 4 days and we wanna thank the entire Clafouti staff for being so friendly and helpful. They made our stay very comfortable. The rooms are very well maintained and the sea view from the room was just awesome. Overall the entire resort was beautiful however what made our stay even better... More

Clafouti is an eyesore on the otherwise picturesque Varkala cliff- the management is irresponsible and greedy. Shortly after I made my booking through booking.com I was approached by their manager ( Mr Vishnu) he pleaded with me to cancel my booking through the website and book through him directly saying he would upgrade our villa to the honeymoon cottage And...

an excellent hotel to stay with amazingly cooked food with the restaurant right next to the rooms. Very helpful staff. The view from our room was befuddling. Rooms are spacious enough and cleaned. The restaurant provides amazing food. Alcohol is prohibited on the cliff premises. Though you can ask for beers in big porcelain cups ;) ;). I would recommend... More

Clafouti is the hotel on the front line of the Cliff, so all shops and restaurants are near. Hotel territory is nice and green. Rooms have big windows with mirror coating. Even on the ground floor during the daytime you are able to live with blinds open and don't mind if anyone sees you. Room interior is minimalistic; standard rooms... More

This place was a treasure trove for us. Rooms were very clean and had free wifi. Affordable rates. Very safe for single women. These guys organise railway station pick up. The best property on the cliff witha great restaurant. Loved it

We had been to this place in July 2014. Well its a bit late but few pointers as I remember. It was off season and most of the beach side resorts and rooms were closed. We chose clafouti after checking few not so good / clean hotels to stay overnight. The entire area of this beach resort is well maintained... More

We loved staying at Clafouti for one week. Our rooms were simple, but clean and comfortable. We were offseason, so they upgraded our rooms without charge. For the price, it was an excellent choice. The location is a short walk to the beach, and the garden setting was idyllic. We ate in the restaurant daily, and found the staff helpful... More

Located quite in the center of the 'beach promenade', Clafouti was a peaceful resort with well-maintained garden and premises. We stayed in a room with private entry & bath, and were very pleased with the simple (simple as in only basic necessities) and very clean room. The view was nice from the room, and just a couple of steps from... More
