“Overall very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The resort is no where close to "luxury"... the location is good but not that great. But still the overall experience was very good because the staff is very good.. they go that extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast was good too.

I stayed here for 3 days. The resorts is at a walkable distance from the cliff. The time we went to Varkala was not pleasant, but the stay in the resorts made us happy and enjoyable. The room service was excellent. Pool a great plus point in the resorts. Don't miss it.

There needs to be a subtext added in here, I proposed to my girlfriend in the pool so it can't be too bad!! Very pleasant place to spend a few days, short walk to the strip of restaurants at the cliff and a nice pool with friendly staff. Breakfast was fine and the room was very nice, nothing at all to complain about. Would thoroughly recommend if visiting varkala for a few days

Deshadan is a nice accommodation and all people in the staff were very helpful and friendly. We were in Varkala in July (low season) and this is one of the few places with swimming pool that is fully operational.

My son and I stayed 4 nights at Deshadan in mid June 2013 and believe it was the highlight of our three week southern india tour. The rooms are fantastic; clean comfortable and well maintained and all located just a step from the beautiful central swimming pool. The restaurant was a joy; even though it was almost monsoon season the two chefs in the kitchen were on call all day for snacks or room service and the meals on offer were absolutely superb! The wait staff were extra helpful with recommendations and their ability to acquire an ice cold bottle of beer for sun-downers was amazing. Likewise on arrival we had no change for the TukTuk cab but reception paid our driver without a second thought (and also without any comment or reminder to us!)
Great place, great hotel and even more impressive staff: reception, restaurant and the chefs!
