“The best location”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

We were supposed to stay only for a week, after a few day we decide to stay for 3 .. The place is on a top of the Clift with a nice and clean beach, you need to walk down ( 278 stairs ), the water is transparent with strong current so be careful.The rooms are clean and simple. The staff was very help full. Every night there is a different activity as live music, cooking class... And there is a place to exchange books. Maria the manager did help us a lot to find our way around India.

Stayed February 2014

Stayed in the Oceano Eco which is the annexe building. It is close so the facilities of the main hotel which can be used. The rooms are large with quirky interiors great sea views from the balcony. The fantastic large swimming pool is a big plus for the annexe though there is limited shade. The location of both hotels is perfect perched above a beautiful empty sandy beach ,just a short walk to restaurants .
The staff were always helpful and friendly and I was very impressed they have an in house doctor .Who was very helpful with my blocked ears.
It is good value for money.Highly recommended.

We were a group of 2 families and stayed for 4 nights.The Place is calm and clean. Don't expect high end service.The place is suitable for families.Facilities to cook are minimal.The rooms are big and well ventilated.Bath room is big and clean.We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it can easily old 2 families and 3 bachelors.I will be going back again.

There are two primary things going for this hotel - its proximity to the beach (the quiet south beach) and the quality of the food - which was some of the best we had on our tours. Otherwise this is an average place, with average to poor service and located in a very poor area (step outside the gates and you a faced with the harsh reality of how many Indian families live) this was at time difficult to take in. BEWARE: due to regular power surges in the hotel guests regularly find that their power cables to their various appliances (lap tops, mobiles, iPads etc) blow. This leaves you stranded - we found an Apple store in Mysore but for others it ruined their holidays. The hotel staff showed little sign of being concerned and simply blamed it on "India"! I suggested notices were displayed warning guests not sure if this ever happened.

Room Tip: We stayed in Oceano Eco which has the large pool.

What do you need more than a beautiful room with ocean view, tranquil ambiance and gorgeous sunset?. We were very lucky to have found this gem in Varkala!. The staff are very open and helpful, good food and again, spectacular view of the ocean! The resort has direct access to a beautiful private beach where you can swim the Arabian sea or simply work on your tan. We were very happy to stay there and definitely recommend it as one of the best resort in Varkala.

Room Tip: choose the newly built Oceano Eco accommodation.

Friendly, open management team and front desk, they know what tourists appreciate and are willing to make you're stay as comfortable as possible.
The place is well maintained, renovated and fresh. Rooms are clean, they have a good view and the garden makes you're stay relaxed.
The food was really good! We were told that the chef cooked for the president! Everything fresh prepared. That makes you have to be patient, it will cost some time before you get you're food.
Sometimes waiters go for the easiest way, a bit lazy. But also friendly and willing to explain about the menu.
