We went and visited Varkala for 7 days and started here. The cottages are lovely, the staff are very friendly and the while resort is spotless. The staff are always on hand to help out in any way they can. The beach is within a 2 minute walk and it is a very quiet secluded beach. It is at the... More

We went on as a big gang of 21 members. We had almost booked 8 rooms but were alloted 7. We really had a great stay. The breakfast bills were adjusted based on our request. The restaurant is right on the beach and it was really wonderfull. The beach was really colourfull and just a step down from resort. But... More

Great location as it is right between the two beaches, extremely helpful staff and manager, though we have to shout out every time we have to reach them, but again, they are always around. Newly renovated property so rooms are clean and in good condition. It's on one end of the cliff, so be prepared for long walks on the... More

My sisters and i went during off season and that has its perks and flaws. There were no guests other than us.He arranged a room where we could all stay together and have our sister time. We really enjoyed the swimming pool. Special thanks to Mr.Anoop for having cleaned out the pool especially for us.

We stayed during December'2011 for 2 nights in the cottage. It is almos within the beach and we can view the sea from the room itself. The pristine small beach for enjoyment is exactly 2 minutes away from the room. The night market is 3 - 4 minutes walk from room. Cleanliness and staffs are bit issue but the location... More

The last time we stayed here, there was a power failure for an entire night. They dint have any generator back up and i couldnt sleep one bit with all the heat and humidity. The whole experience was stifling and as unpleasant as it can get. So my advice is, stay away from this place if your idea of a... More

This hotel was suggested by my travel agent. I accepted their suggestion and do not regret it a bit. A thouroughly anjoyable quiet place, the hotel has most of the amenities, though some of them do not work and you have to bring it to the notice of the management. The hotel has both brick and morter structure as well... More

Cocroaches in your room. Dysfunctioning ac. No cleaning. No toiletpaper. Noise in the night. And high-end prices. Don't go here. You get exploited. The huts are much too close to each other. No privacy. No goodies? Yes, the endless toar of the arabian dea. But that's gods gift. That's free.

We made a reservation via email (from abroad) and kept calling, emailing etc and were told our reservation was confirmed - yet we still wanted to pay our deposit - but then they disappeared and finally a month or so later finally got back to us saying the rooms were...
