I liked this place. The room was big and very clean. I stayed for 5 days. It would have been nice if I didn't have to ask for a clean towel after 4 days. There also wasn't any offers for housecleaning as lots of sand from the beach can become an issue after a couple of days. The central part... More

I have been many times to Varkala and more than three time to Santa Claus, But this time it was really a different experience all because of the new and dynamic management team (Mr.Randeep Shanker and his colleagues). Our entire family was there this time, i would really appreciate their patience in handling the elders and care for my 2year... More

We moved here from another hostel because it was in a much better place, had better rooms and was much cheaper. Staff were so lovely and friendly. When we were there they were building a nativity scene and massive santa claus ready for Christmas! The room was nice, clean and had a fan, no a/c. Wifi was fast. It has... More

It is a very homelike place. The owner is a very nice and friendly guy, helpful and welcoming. We felt so relaxed here. If you haggle a bit, you can also have a better price. The first Indian word is never the last))) If you ask, the owner will also introduce you to the staff in one of the local... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. I was lucky enough to nab one of the front sea view rooms. From my explorations along the cliff these rooms are most certainly the best view your going to be able to get. And affordable! At the time I stayed I paid only 600 rupees which considering the view and proximity to every... More

We stayed at Santa Claus during our visit to Varkala. We intended to stay here for three nights but left after one. The owner is a lovely man who seemed disheartened that we didn't want to stay longer. However, the room, although possessing a lovely view, wasn't great at all. The bathroom was ridden with ants, and the bed was... More

Nice location on the cliffs. The room and bathroom were ok, and there was a little terrace outside with 2 chairs and a table were you could sit (we didn't have sea view). No hot water, but that was no problem for us. The worst thing was the bed; it had a plastic mattress, which makes you sweat all night.... More

The only place closer to the SEA on the entire CLIFF. Good Stay, Convenient Rooms and Friendly Management. Place to relax, eat and rejuvenate yourself. Really fresh Sea Food stores at evening in the Cliff is again a fascinating one.
