I've visited Varkala 3x in the past as a single bachelor with friends and have always stayed at La Exotica. Didn't really notice all the flaws of the property as I was always having so much fun in the beautiful town. Returned their with my wife and 2 year old daughter and can honestly say the only bad thing about...

Location- right next to the helipad. It's a home stay with a neat small lawn. Rooms- very spacious, clean, enough furniture and plug points placed across, WiFi available Pricing- moderate Breakfast- simple bread, bury, jam and eggs. Absolutely worth it.

Positives - Big spacious rooms. We stayed in a non AC room on 1st floor. The rooms on 1st and 2nd floor have balconies from where you get sea view. Sea is at a distance of 200 meters across he helipad. This helipad is not functional. More like a car parking now. The famous cliff road starts within 150 meters....

Comfortable stay, clean rooms with great sea view. Owner of the property are very polite and humble. But in the morning they should offer tea or coffee to guests and little more service rest everything is awesome.

La Exotica has a great location above the beach, close to the shops and a multitude eating choices. The private balconies have a pleasant breeze of the ocean, and the rooms are clean, large and quiet. The owners are really pleasant and friendly. And be sure to ask Ragini about a cooking lesson! She is more than happy to accommodate...

This quaint home like home stay is right in front (or behind depends on how you look at it) on the helipad. Don't worry, it is not an active helipad, I'm not sure of the history, but I assume, it was functional at one time or is just used for emergencies. Our room had the ocean view, there is nothing...

We spent 3 days in this homestay after reading some good reviews in several booking websites. Our expectations were overcome since the first second because the room were we stayed was better than we payed for (a mistake by their side makes it happen). So, I have to say that the ammount we were paying was for a "worse" room....
