It was very neat and was cleaned everyday. The staff was extremely courteous. The restaurant was really awesome. Overlooking the beach, from the breakfasts to lunch... More

Not well maintained. But beautiful location and lovely staff. Peeling paint and bathroom door wouldn't close. Beach side and hence great view. Couldn't try out the restaurant so can't comment on the food.

I enjoyed my two nights in Varkala and this is the only place right by the beach. It's only a short walk up to the cliff where the other bars and restaurants are too. The place was a little quiet, because of the off season and restaurant looked like it needed a bit of love and redecorating, but my room... More

If you are visiting Varkala beach, you should try the taste of seafood dishes from Marine palace restaurant. They had a wide variety of seafood dishes, biriyanis including fish and prawns biriyanis. If you are food lover, you should once visit this restaurant. You will love the ambiance you get here viewing the beach while having the food.

However we were there in the monsoon season so the sea was too rough/dangerous to swim in - very frustrating as it was hot! A pool to cool off in would be a great addition. Friendly staff, good rooms (but no aircon), good beds (our... More

The Location of Varkala Marine Palace is perfect! The beach is just in front of you. We had a beautiful room with lots of space at the first floor and had the perfect ocean view. You have to walk a view minutes to the areas of Varkala that are more busy, but for us it was perfect, that we had... More
