Stayed at Marine Palace off season and got a good price. Room was spacious and clean, but not anything fancy. Best experience was at the hotelrestaurant which has a really cool bartender/waiter from Nepal. Thank you for making the stay better. Eventhough this hotel is good we would recommend staying at the north cliffbeach and not the south.

To our great surprise, the owner Babu sent a taxi to meet us at the station so we knew we were in very good hands. When we got to the hotel, as we were travelling out of season, we were offered two large sea view rooms for our family at a discounted price. All the staff made us feel very... More

We got a recommendation for this hotel from a friend and it turned out to be a very good one. The room was clean (the bathroom could be more clean) and nicely decorated. We slept very good because there was no disturbing noise from the surrounding area. Only the sound of the see :)

Great spot right on the beach away from the main tourist crowds with a great litte cafe next door called Sea Sun Cafe where we ate the whole time we were there. Spacious, clean rooms with the best showers in India!! Friendly and helpful staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

This was an ideal spot for us. The palace is wonderfully located on the beach and is away from the main 'backpacker' locations on the cliffs so would be peaceful and quiet in the high season ( apart from the sounds of the crashing waves!) We were here in monsoon, which meant few other tourists and gave us a chance... More

This hotel turned out to be a good choice as we arrived with no booking! Stayed in a double fan room which was modern clean and quiet (good nights sleep)! The restaurant was also good and served up a good breakfast (at an extra cost). I would recommend this hotel!

We had originally planned to stay 4 nights at Varkala Marine Palace but ended staying 3 more nights (!) as the place could not possibly be matched on many levels. Great corner room with a terrace. Super food at the nearby restaurant from where you can observe at length a rare combination of devoted Hindus performing their rites, Indian and... More

This hotel is in a great location on a cliff facing the ocean. There are restaurants and shops around it. I mean you can't beat the location. As far as room goes, we liked the room though we did wish few times that we could have booked the suite which has A/C since it was scorching hot. Our room had... More

Only a 5-7 min walk to the cliff strip, this lovely hotel could be 100 miles from all the commercial "please look in my shop" nonsense that comes with being in the thick of things. Right on the beach with several eating place s to choose from, it is very peaceful. Pay extra and get the "high end suite" if... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the 3rd week of march. It is one of the best beach resorts we have ever stayed. Located right on the beach. Our room was traditional Kerala styled, large and equipped with a small kitchenette which includes a fridge and kettle. No TV, could access Wi-Fi on my smartphone. No AC but additional... More
