“Good value for money, huge rooms”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Nice big airy rooms that seemed to be clean. We had a nice view over looking the sea, and Stanley the owner was very nice and friendly. No hot water though as they use a solar system, so it didn't heat up. Good stay though for the budget traveller. Varkala is really beautiful. Go to Cafe Del Mar for dinner!

I have been travelling in India for some time and I got to Varkala and stayed at Mother Palace beach resort, actually stayed more days than I thought because i really enjoyed the atmosphere there. I feel its really a nice place and the room was good with hot shower and it was clean and decent.The hotel has wi fi so was able to use my computer in room. It is very close to the cliff and stairs down to the beach. Stanley, the manager, was friendly and helpful with great knowledge of the local area... I would love to stay there again!

Absolutely horrendous stay in this hotel, worst hotel we have stayed at during our month in India and we have seen some sights!
No running water for 24hours was a disaster, meaning even the toilet didn't flush! When trying to get money taken off for this, the hotel manager argued with us and was absolutely no help at all.
Rooms are cramped, views aren't worth pennies and my god the beds are hard, we had to sleep on inflatable mattresses just to get through the night. Awful! Do NOT stay here!!

So enjoyed our 2 week stay here - started out as 4 nights, but Varkala and Mother Palace was too good to leave. Stanley looked after us well. Bent over back wards to be helpful, including finding a new charger for our stolen one - good to get the mobile phone working again!
The rooms are not fancy, but neither are the prices. A/C is extra, but worth it for a couple of hours a day, although with the breeze it is almost unnecessary. Front facing rooms with balconies are great to watch sunset with a beverage, not sure what the other rooms are like. Well priced for Varkala,a nd the price goes down the longer you stay!

Room Tip: Go for the front balcony ones
