Super comfortable cottages and very good service make this place a great find. Located right on the cliff, Hill View Resort made it easy for us to enjoy all that Varkala had to offer. We had a very relaxing stay with our parents and ten-month old baby.

I came to Varkala for three days and stayed at a little guest house nearby. But I realized quickly that I wanted to stay longer--and even longer--and there was no room where I was staying. I met a mom and daughter from France who were staying at Hill View and were very happy there, and then I met a couple... More

We arrived without a reservation and made the perfect choice. Our room was clean, large, bright..with ample storage/closet space and a huge (western) bathroom, and a large, private balcony. There were the usual problems with water/internet/electric, but overall, fine. If power went off, it was never for long and the A/C was good in our room. The staff deserves 5... More

This place is bang on the cliff and in middle of the cliff road facing the sea. Awesome view. Went on a short vacation with friends and my interaction with the front office ppl for the reservations was quite pleasant and they were friendly and flexible. I first opted for the cottages. But after landing there I found that the... More

This place is a bit pricy but we needed some comfort and we found it here. Big room with sofa, tv, very comfy bed, clean sheets and towels, room clean. The shower didn't work well though, sometimes there was no water, sometimes only extremely hot, sometimes cold. We decided to take this room without a/c as there were mosquito screens... More

There are a lot of options in Varkala but I was really very happy with our choice. I can absolutely recommend this place. It is good value for money and perfectly located. The rooms were very clean, the garden well maintained, the staff friendly and the manager very helpful. If you are going to Varkala -> this is the place... More

We had quite some mixed weather, but the staff and the food and the view made this short stay very enjoyable. I have no idea how crowded it might be during the high season, but it was nice in late October. We will definitely come back again, had such a good time. The trips we did were well organised by...

The hotel was bag. The rooms given to us is NON AC instead of payment of AC Room. Food Quality was bad. No service is being provided in room beside being a resort. The resort far way from the city. The money taken for Cottage but they hotel authority provided a single NON AC room.
