We booked 5 rooms. All were happy with the rooms. Nice view and surroundings Well behaved staff. They have balcony in each room. Restaurant was closed since off season. If you go to varkala avoid Tibetan restaurants for food. They take much time. we waited for 80 minutes for food in a near by restaurant. I recommend this for stay... More

Stayed here in one of the basic room. If anyone is looking for a stay right in front of the cliff road and restaurants then this will be a hood choice. They don't have any ambience or gardens in front of the hotel but you don't have to walk long to have food. There is a good restaurant right in... More

We stayed at Green Palace after staying at a luxury hotel over Xmas. We booked rooms as walk in so were able to see them before deciding to stay. They are basic rooms with balconies. The bathrooms could do with updating but they were serviceable. Beds ok. The laundry took 3 days to get back to us - was beginning... More

I have travelled quite a bit in both India and abroad. This by far is the worst place ever. Even though we had done our booking they denied us our booking. When asked they even got security and some local goon to chase us away. Extremely rude staff. From what I saw in the reception the place was nothing great.... More

Stayed a week at GP, good friendly staff, goods rooms right in the middle of the cliff, if only the rest of the cliff was as tidy, local shop keepers etc throwing rubbish over the cliff & the constant harassment to buy something, also be aware of the local speeding in all forms of transport along cliff. This hotel is... More

Perched precariously along the edge of cliff faces, Varkala is a backpacker mecca which is rapidly rising as a resort destination. The beaches are an interesting mixture of fishing folk and hindu blessings which is great culturally and brilliant photography. We chose to stay on the quieter south cliff but moved to the north cliff after our first night because;... More

We booked for three nights, stayed for six - which tells you what you need to know about Varkala in general and the Green Palace in particular! The hotel is in a great position in the centre of the cliff top, set back a little from the edge and pretty quiet (at least it was when we visited just before... More

We found the Green Palace a nice place to spend few days. The rooms are clean, all of them have balconies facing the sea. the ABBA restaurant serves good food,especially breakfast. The only flaw is the music coming from restaurants nearby.
