The hotel is on the cliff facing the beach. The room was basic with no TV(although not important). The service was good enough and we spent hours in the restaurant with a great view of the sea. One of my favorite places to stay in Varkala especially for the location.

Had a chance to stay at the Clafouti beach resort in Varkala. The rooms are large and well appointed. It is overlooking the sea and the walkway is next to the resort. Food was also very good and the service nice

The overall rating is good. I am satisfied with the room and its surroundings. The beach view was nice from the top and very easily accessible. recommended stay near Varkala . But Resort's service was average; i didn't affect that much because most of the time we were at beach side. :)

Must know stuff: The access to most resorts in Varkala is through very narrow, unpaved streets. Be careful if you are driving your SUV's there. The rooms are very... More
