Me and my wife stayed at Maadathil Cottages for couple of days. What a beautiful place along with best staff I have came across. Their hospitality is out of the world. I have stayed in many five star hotels, but these people stood way above all the five star hotel staff. They will go out of their way and do...

Well I would say, with Maadathil cottages, our trip to Varkala became outstanding. We stayed for 2 days in these cottages and the trip became memorable for variety of reasons. (1) Excellent cottages very near to beach, nice and clean. (2) Property is big, so plenty of space to roam around. (3) Swing, benches, hammocks to enjoy in property. (4)...

Having travelled to Thailand on multiple occasions, we were looking for something similar with a cottage style arrangement on the beach in Varkala, India. After some research, we found Maadathil Cottages, which sounded just what we were looking for, and who had many great reviews on Agoda and booking.com, so we decided to give them a try. We were met...

The location is beautiful with coconut trees, hammocks, pond with lotus flowers blooming and only a very short 20 meter walk from the very beautiful Odayam Beach. The cottages are very well kept; they clean everyday, replacing bedsheets and towels. The grounds are also immaculate and we noticed that everyday workers cleaned up the premises of fallen leaves, etc and...

The big plus point of the cottages is its location and of course its staff. The kliffs are in walking distance. After a visit to the more touristic part of Varkala we were even more convinced that we made the right choise in choosing Maadathil Cottages. The bungalow had a large bedroom and the bathroom is very spacious. The veranda...

We stayed at Maadathil cottage for 2 days and it's a lovely place to stay with a wonderful view of the sea but it's on cliff making it difficult to go down the beach. The resort is wonderful with clean rooms and well maintained. The food is not good here. One can stay and relax here and explore food options...

We spent 5 nights in one of the cottages here and had a lovely time. Muhajir and his staff offer excellent service and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The cottages and menu are simple which totally suits the ambience. Our room also had a good view of the beach which is a stone's throw away. The cottages are conveniently...

Location absolutely beautiful, the villas are right on an almost secluded beach (Odayam beach) just 10mins away from busy Varkala North cliff. Staff were very friendly and helpful and good wifi connection (of you need it!). There are a couple of restaurants walking distance as well as their own on site restaurant.

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights at the start of our honeymoon. It was a lovely place to relax after a 24 hour journey to get there. Staff were friendly. Room was clean and the gardens beautiful. Some sun beds and hammocks available. Sea is choppy but my husband swam every day to practice his open water swimming....
