We just spent three weeks in India and have waited to do any reviews until we'd done the whole trip, so we were used to Indian standards etc and could review all the places we stayed fairly.
We stayed at the Hill view beach resort in varkala and booked a month in advance via email. On the day even though our room wasnt ready for a couple hours when we initially arrived due to a late check out they said, when we did get in we were happy with what we got.
The rooms are lovely big rooms with a lovely bathroom attached, with baths big enough for two (which we used a couple of times) and showers. Loads of hot water.
Big comfortable beds, excellent TV with Indian sky type TV boxes and loads of english channels with tons of movies and sport to watch. The staff were were friendly and always available. We got the rooms for 3,000 ruppees a night and this includes a buffet Breakfast which was nice each morning with real coffee, Could order any eggs you liked. Fresh fruit, currys etc.
The bathroom was beautiful but the one issue was water on the floor didn't drain so stagnant water was left. and built up over a few days.
You get nice towels and are given beach towels as well. Its Nice that the room was detached and had a slight side view of the sea. (not exactly the sea facing you expect as as per the description) and some of the other resorts, however it was still a really Good location near the best part of the beach.
Overall one of the best places we stayed!!!!!
