Clean, well designed cottages. We were a group of 14 and was a perfect destination for us. people could choose hammocks or the swing or play frisbee, or just lay down under the coconut trees with the sound of the waves hitting the rocks.. The owners are always there to help you and guide you around. Very friendly, happy staff.... More

A beautiful gem of a place - perfect if you like peace and quiet . You can sit on the balcony of your cottage and watch the waves . We walked up and down the cliff and saw many resorts , but Maadathil cottages was the best. The other resorts cram too many rooms into a small space. These cottages... More

A perfect hideaway resort south of the maddening crowds of Varkala cliff. Managed by a local and his two brothers, the cottages under palm trees are very well maintained, tidy and spacious.

Excellent place for peaceful relaxation, probably the best in the vicinity of Varkala beaches. Though you don't directly overlook the sea from the cottages, you could hear the sound of the sea. Run by three young and enterprising brothers who are keen to provide good service and don't seem to commercially exploit as they own this place.

The room was clean and the location excellent, as well away from the busy areas of Varkala clifftop. Amenities were adequate, theres a decent restaurant and hammocks by the beach. A little pricy for my budget style but location and comfort make up for this.
