It was a pleasant stay there. My wife and I were able to take a "mini vacation" at wood house Beach Resort. Check in was super easy. Our room was ready a little before actual check in time. The room was very clean. Nothing to complain about. It tied us over. Easy walk to the beach. Are actually going back... More

I was reccomended this resort and stayed with family for 4 nights. We had two triple rooms and a beach hut. The rooms were good for the price (it was off season). There were a number of unforseen issues - the roof leaked in one of the beach huts, there was a power inturruption due to the heavy rains, missing... More

Rooms are really nice. Sea is just in front of the resort. The view is good. We were taken good care of. We had a very good time. There is scope for improvement in the breakfast. Otherwise, it was fun.

If you like clean rooms/bathrooms then this hotel is nothing for you. But on the other hand, the rooms have a great view to the Ocean, just a really great location to get directly to the beach. The were really friendly to help for any qeustion you may have. Breakfast medium. The super location makes all to a good stay... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and I loved this place. Near the black beach, you could hear the sound of the ocean, the rooms were very nice .This hotel is bit more expensive than average but absolutely worth it.

We stayed one night in a normal room and the next two in now of the cottages. I'd say that the rooms themselves were pretty basic, although for the price and the location they were excellent. It was far enough away from the multiple shops and restaurants to mean it was quiet and private, but close enough to mean within... More

One of the smaller resorts in Varkala, but this adds to its charm and intimate feel which made it very easy to meet some other residents at breakfast and get to know them. The staff are friendly. Rooms are well looked after and offer decent value for money. All windows have reflective panelling so you can see out but others... More

Stayed here with our kids (12&14) for NY. We all shared a wooden house. The accommodation was one step up from what we had stayed in so far but cost no more. We all share a room - bit of a squash but it worked. Bathroom hot hot water and the room had A/C at no extra cost. Wifi too.... More
