We doubled our time here as we liked it so much. The sea views - with dolphins and sunsets thrown in (though not arranged by the hotel) are a highlight and the restaurant is fantastic (probably the best in Varkala and one of the best we went to in all of Kerala). Try the Odayam Prawns for the best dish you will eat in Kerala and the tandoori chef is an expert.
The hotel included breakfast which was great for the coffee alone and you can get wifi whilst sipping your latte.
Hillview is very close to the beach (though we would recommend walking up to a quieter swimming place further north) but set back so it's not disturbed by music in other places.
Finally, the rooms had AC and fans so sleeping in the heat wasn't a problem.
