Whilst staying in Varkala we were advised that it was possible to use the pool at the Akhili Beach Resort. On arrival we paid a sum of money and then went to the pool area where there were free sunbeds but not 4 together, which our group required. The very timid pool boy made it clear that it was more...

The biggest pluses for this hotel are its great pool (the biggest in town apparently) and gardens. It's just a couple of minutes walk from the cliff top. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms are decent value given the pool and time of year but a little aged. Lighting a bit poor, and bathroom could use an upgrade.... More

It was a nice and cozy stay. Location and interiors were really nice. A few odds, like no dressing table lights, no bathroom dustbin, but overall, I enjoyed the stay. I would recommend others to stay at this hotel and enjoy the wonders of Varkla beach and cliff. I felt it a bit expensive though.
