These cottages are paradise. Hidden away from the tourists and the noise, Maadathil is the perfect spot to enjoy the ocean, see the stars and be surrounded by fireflies. Pleasant 15min walk into town that is very safe. Location is everything and these guys get it right. Rooms are spacious and beds are comfy. Lovely service and nice food. Highly... More

Maadathil Cottages is the perfect laid back, tropical vacation get away. We originally booked four nights but kept on extending our stay. The hotel consists of eight cottages situated beautifully under palm trees right by the cliffs and the ocean. In the back you have a big pond with lotus flowers. Our cottage was simple, but nice, with a well... More

We had a great time in Varkala - visited last week. Quiet & nice looking cottages - we took Lotus which had two balconies. We were bit hesitant after driver took us through narrow passage right over the cliff facing sea but worth it. It's being run by family who is very supportive and will leave no stone unturned to...

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
