Spent 2 nights at this resort in early May '15. One of the main reasons why I booked this resort was the pool - which is nice and well-maintained. However I cannot say the same about the other aspects of the resort. While the rooms (garden view and pool view) are large, they are not kept in a clean manner.... More

Highlight is the swimming pool area - very clean and tidy, and as it was low season...there was no one else there! We spent most of our time here. Standard room was of good size with an outside seating area facing the garden. Spotlessly clean. Room could do with another coat of paint. Service was very friendly, everyone was accommodating....

Location - The resort is walking distance from the cliff and beach, around 5 mins at max and has a cozy market on the way out just as the pathway opens to the cliff. There is ample parking opposite... More

We enjoyed varkala beach to the best. The stretch from helipad to the other end on the cliff was enjoyable especially during the the sun set time. As for Akhil resort, the room well furnished and clean bath rooms. They provided free car parking free.

This is a very nice place. Rooms are spacious and spotless with fab bathrooms. The hotel is set in lush tropical gardens with a lovely pool which is very, very welcome in the heat of Varkala. There are not enough sunbeds at the pool so this could improve - there are however towels and a drinks service. There is a... More

Akhil Beach resort was a perfect choice for our trip to Varkala, The Second we walked in the front gates we felt safe and relaxed. The resort itself isn't directly on the "cliff" but honestly is a 2 min walk down a trail, No big deal there, It was nice being slightly away from the shops and restaurants. Onsite Restaurant...

We complained and were moved that day to another room which was cheaper and just as nice (C24). Staff friendly, good menu and pool is great size or... More

we stayed for 5 nights in February in a garden cottage. The cottage itself is basic but clean and spacious with a separate dressing room and large shower/wet room. The a/c was noisy but much needed. There is no fridge or tea making facilities which is disappointing, however room service provide an excellent pot of tea within 10 minutes of... More
