Maadathil Cottages is located just next to the sea, the location is beautiful and the cottages were just perfect for relaxing. Our cottage was adjacent to a field of lotus flowers in bloom, really gorgeous. The staff were excellent and very helpful. As it was off season, things were quiet but that didn't deter the staff from looking after us... More

The Maadathil Cottages are very nicely situated at a quiet end of the beach. It's a small property with just a few cottages. This is perhaps the very nicest setting on Odayam Beach, and that is worth a lot. We found the food choices a bit limited here, though, so do familiarize yourself with the offerings up and down the... More

This was our second experience at Maadathil Cottages and we will for sure be back! Maadathil Cottages is situated in a very nice area of Varkala. Our apartment was quiet, no noises from the street. Muhajir and his staff are very helpful and nice, they made us feel welcome. We highly recommend this place.

Maadathil Cottages well deserves their many fine reviews. I stayed there for two weeks in April and very much appreciated the beautiful site and fine service. Even in the heat of April I had no trouble sleeping in the tiled roof cottages with just a fan. There's a fine beach within 100 yards of the cottages- all set to go... More

This place is quite the find. The cottages are well kept, the food is yummy, the sounds of the ocean just a few feet away are beautiful. Muhajir and his staff really do an excellent job with the customer service, they attended to us in such a personal and caring manner. Even the rickshaw driver was awesome at what he... More

Had a fantastic time staying in maadathil and would highly recommend this resort! Was staying with friends in 3 of the cottages and Muhajir really went out of his way to make all our stays extremely comfortable. The resort is small and quiet and each cottage is very clean and well furnished with lots of personal touches (there was every... More
