The location of the Guest house is very close to the stairs that lead down to the main beach. Literally 2-3 minutes walk and then you're also on the main drag with shops, other Hotels and restaurants. When reading the reviews it looks to me that the owners have changed hands. Yet the laid back attitude, helpful staff remains the... More

I would have liked to have stayed at Cliff Top Residency for a lot longer if I'd had more time. I felt very comfortable there- rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff are really friendly and laid-back. The location is excellent too, just a two-minute walk from the beach. I paid 600 rupees during the high season and have... More

The owner, Stanley, was wonderfully welcoming, and always ready to assist in whatever need arises. He is also a great source of information about the area and environs. Cliff Top is well located close to the beach, but not situated on... More

Vakala is a great location to just kick back and relax and the Cliff Top Residency is a pleasant and affordable place to make your base. The numerous clifftop eateries are just a few minutes stroll and the beach is just as close. Stanley and his assistant Jack, are very helpful and the rooms are spacious and cool (20ft ceilings...

We have visit India 4 times now and stayed at many places while travelling around India. Some accomodation can be so bad you either leave after one night or do not even put your bags down. Or you can go to the best and pay the high rates. What we wanted was a reasonable mid range room for a reasonable... More
