We had booked after seeing the good reviews here but were a little disappointed. Although relatively cheap it was very basic with only the most minimal facilities. The room looked like it needed a good coat of paint. We were given one of the cottages and it might that rooms in the main building are better but this one definitely...

Stayed for 1 night while travelling around Kerala and Jicky's was our favourite. Clean rooms and accommodating staff. Jicky's is in a great location and a great price. Beautiful paintings on the walls, mosquito nets and a big book exchange. I would definitely go back.

Stayed here for a week and enjoyed it. We stayed in a spacious bungalow overlooking a calm little garden. Friendly staff, the guy in charge even invited me to his house when I asked him where I could see a Premier League game. Also, really good yoga on the rooftop!

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of weeks and could have stayed longer. The rooms were very clean on arrival and staff offered to clean the room on a number of occasions throughout our stay for no additional cost. The hotel is located in a secluded area but is only a two minute walk away from the beach and...

I had a fine stay at Jicky's. The AC Cottage was really sweet with lovely wall paintings. Jicky's is perfectly located - just a short 3 minute stroll to the beach steps and cliff top restaurants. The young man on reception was a kind and helpful boy too. Would recommend - especially because of the location.

We stayed at Jicky's for the three nights. The place is set back in greenery and is very quiet and peaceful. Room is very clean with fan, mosquito net and a little balcony. Excellent location close to beach steps and the main beach carpark where you can jump on a tuk tuk into town. Recommend the yoga on the rooftop.

This was our cheapest night in varkala and one of the most comfortable. The rooms are nicely decorated cool and clean with mosquito nets. The shower has hot water which was an added luxury and the guy on the front desk was very friendly.
