I was reccomended this resort and stayed with family for 4 nights. We had two triple rooms and a beach hut. The rooms were good for the price (it was off season). There were a number of unforseen issues - the roof leaked in one of the beach huts, there was a power inturruption due to the heavy rains, missing...

Rooms are really nice. Sea is just in front of the resort. The view is good. We were taken good care of. We had a very good time. There is scope for improvement in the breakfast. Otherwise, it was fun.

I stayed here for 2 nights and I loved this place. Near the black beach, you could hear the sound of the ocean, the rooms were very nice .This hotel is bit more expensive than average but absolutely worth it.

We stayed one night in a normal room and the next two in now of the cottages. I'd say that the rooms themselves were pretty basic, although for the price and the location they were excellent. It was far enough away from the multiple shops and restaurants to mean it was quiet and private, but close enough to mean within...

One of the smaller resorts in Varkala, but this adds to its charm and intimate feel which made it very easy to meet some other residents at breakfast and get to know them. The staff are friendly. Rooms are well looked after and offer decent value for money. All windows have reflective panelling so you can see out but others...

Stayed here with our kids (12&14) for NY. We all shared a wooden house. The accommodation was one step up from what we had stayed in so far but cost no more. We all share a room - bit of a squash but it worked. Bathroom hot hot water and the room had A/C at no extra cost. Wifi too....
