“Great property let down by poor service”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Went there in a large group of 3 families. The reception was very friendly and they accommodated some last minute changes on our part with a smile. We had booked garden villas and were upgraded to pool villas which was a very nice surprise.

The rooms by themselves were smaller than I had expected but functional. The intercoms were not working on day 1, and we had a tough time getting the attention of housekeeping staff for basic requests like water and cleanups. The pool was clean but did not have basics like lifesavers/life buoys. The attitude of house keeping staff was like a government servant.

The restaurant is located close to the beach, and our package included all 3 meals. The food was decent but buffet did not include any seafood which was a disappointment. Even in the restaurant, save for one or two, the rest of the staff were lazy and lacked basic hospitality.

All in all, it was certainly good value for money mainly due to its location. Keep in mind that there is no market or other restaurant close by, so stock up and enjoy.

Room Tip: Pool villas have 2 adjacent rooms with a 'link' room joining them. This is very useful.

This was a vacation for my family after 2 years. The team at Varca baech resort was magnificent and ensured that it was a memorable holiday. Mr. Rajesh (EAM) was most hospitable he greeted us at the lobby and gave us a property round. My children did not want to go out of the hotel as there is so many super activities on the hotel itself.
The Chefs and the service staff were forever smiling and the buffet had something for everyone. An elaborate buffet and a change of cuisine everyday was amazing.
Would love to go back. A big thanks to the Varca Beach Resort team, u people are doing a great job .
Regards
Ishaan

We explore varca palms in the month of June 2014. It has a nice beach and directly access. it is just about 200 metres from the reception.We have booked the resort through travel agent. while doing the booking we are thinking how would be the food as our package includes all meals. But after reaching at resort when we had our lunch at restaurant it was delicious.We went for sight seeing very next day and after coming from sight seeing we were surprised to see a cake in our room. When we asked at reception they told us it was complementary birthday cake for my wife. Staffs at hotel are so courtious and helpful if we ask for something they delightfully serve us with a smiling face. As compare to the room rates they have reasonable price. Rooms are quite good. Receptionist was very kind to upgrade us to villa as we booked for superior room.

Room Tip: rooms on villas has more privacy.

One of the worst stay ever. The staff has no idea if u ask for anything and are rude. The room was ok but everything including the phone handset,trays and washroom so dirty. The TV would not work property.

The only saving grace were the restaurant(eg fisherman wharf etc) around the resort.

Left very disappointed.

The hotel is situated at varca beach closer to ramada and zuri resort . Its only 3 star hotel in south which has closest proximity to the beach. Its less than a minute to the beach to be precise.

Their room rates are very reasonable which any city hotel would demand. Good staff and personalised service has basic ameneties
And good food.

Would recommend for honeymooners . Family with small kids and senior citizens . Their is nothing much for youths. ...
