It remains true just as people have described in their reviews here. Me and wife are from Delhi and we travelled in the month of October 2011.
Great Place + Great Staff:
Seashore Beach Resort is located on the South Cliff of Varkala. Mr. Shine, Dileep and the team really go the extra mile to make things comfortable for you. If you are looking for a friendly and helpful staff and a peaceful and quite resort, this is it. The resort offers awesome view of the Arabian Sea. There is a step that leads down the cliff to the beach. We stayed in the standard normal room without the Ac. The rooms were neat and cleaned everyday.
Only breakfast is provided at the resort. But there are plenty of restaurants at the beach. You just need to walk 10 minutes towards the main beach of south cliff. What we found at these restaurants is that they have customized the food for westerners. And we Indians will find the prices to be very high.
But we wanted to taste the authentic spicy Kerala food. For those who want to try the authentic spicy Kerala food at much cheaper rates, you can try the "Dwaraka" restaurant or the "Mango County" restaurant. These restaurants are in Varkala town, just 10 minutes by the auto rickshaw. Dileep or Shine can arrange the auto rickshaw for you. The lunch at "Dwaraka" on a banana leaf is a real treat. We loved the beef fry, beef cry, fish curry and fish fry. Caution: Westerners may find it spicy. The prices are very less as compared to the prices at the beach restaurants.
There are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and resorts in the north cliff. We found plenty of tourists here. It seemed to be more happening specially in the evenings.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time at the resort. Shine, Dileep and the team, thank you for the excellent service.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels.
