This small hotel is located on the cliff top near to all the cafes. The rooms are large with probably a little too much furniture in ours, but still comfortable. The bathroom was large with a huge bath and good shower. Importantly there was loads of hot water. Monsoon when we were visiting so no need for A/C. Fan was... More

Perfect location, very near to the beach. The garden is amazingly green. There are a lot of shops and eating possibilities in the surrounding. Clean and cosy room. The restaurant next to the hotel was good and cheap, but we have to wait 45 minutes for our food...

Clean rooms, close to the beach and the main strip, helpful and kind staff, good laundry service. The only thing I can complain about is the wifi, it seems to be worse at this hotel than many of the bars and other hostels surrounding.

We had a good stay here at one of the deluxe room. They also provide cottages which have much bigger room. One of the advantage is that you don't have to walk long for a restaurant. There is one in front of the hotel and several within 50 meters from the room. Except night there will be someone at reception... More

Located on the promenade the hotel is still quiet. On the front line it has two 2-storey buildings with balconies (we stayed here) and deep inside the territory there are some chalets with terraces and garden. Rooms have anti-mosquito nets on the windows so you are able to breath fresh air at night. Breakfasts are served in Cafe del' Mar... More

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
