It is a really nice place to stay at if you like beaches. Rooms are spacious and clean. The noticeable thing is that all the staffs, managerial or non manegerial are always willing to service our needs and polite too. The room services are also very good. Infact they are very loyal to their "boss" Babu - who is the person in charge of the resort.

The food served at the restaurants are fresh and tasty. But the only concern is, go for the sea foods they offer only if you can really afford it !!! They are a bit expensive rather than what we expect from this sort of a restaurant. But the quality and taste are ofcourse up to the mark.

When you arrive here you can feel the stress dissolving. The hotel has real character and charm and is located a short walk North of the cliff top resort so it actually is on the beach. We had breakfast overlooking the fisherman bringing in their catch and fresh fish for dinner at a candlelight table on the beach.
The staff are excellent and really make you feel welcome. If you want to get away from it all and relax this is the place to come.

We stayed in March for 3 nights.
The room we had was lovely, the bathroom in particular was spacious, clean and even had a bath.
The bed in the main room was quite large and the a/c and fan worked well.
Although we had booked 2 deluxe rooms with each having a seaview, one of the rooms did not.
Both however had a nice porch area in front as well.
The location of the Hotel is very good and is right on the bach and you can watch the fishermen pulling the nets in in the morning. It is only about a 15 min walk to the shops that line the clifftops. I would definately recommend going in the sea, I have never experienced water as warm as we found here and the waves were great fun.
The food we ate was cooked to a v good standard, my only gripe would be that the choice of dishes was not as good as we experienced elsewhere on our holiday, breakfast in particular I did not enjoy. However being able to eat dinner on the beach listening to the waves rolling in was amazing. The service was very good and the staff were all v friendly.
The hotels wifi was a bit ropey if i am honest, probably not enough bandwidth to cope, a small tip, there was another unlocked network called DLink which you could get near the front of the hotel. We used this as well as the hotels network.
The hotel did experience quite a few electricity blackouts whilst we were there, more than we experienced elsewhere in Kerala, sometimes this was annoying as it took out the ac and fan.
Overall I would recommend this place, but I would look around at the other restaurants along the cliffs for a bit more of a choice.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a seaview as one of our rooms did not.

A very nice hotel! The rooms were big and very clean! The staff were absolutely fantastic! Everyone were superfriendly and seemed to really enjoy their job. The staff in the receptionist were very helpful, with everything from booking yoga to organizing tours. The restaurant staff were the friendliest i've ever met! They werent just great waiters/waitresses, they were also intrested in our over all well being. Plus the food was fantastic! I would love to go back there soon.

We had a wonderful stay at the Palm Tree Heritage. This was the best service I have ever had at a hotel. The owners and staff played with our children. They even planned an impromptu birthday celebration for my son, who turned three while we were in Varkola. The owners were also very helpful when we reserved our rooms and the transport from the hotel. They helped us plan a few trips into the city, on a house boat and to an elephant festival when we requested help (however, they did not try to talk us into any expensive packages, which we appreciated).

Also, the food at the restaurant was the best we had in Varkola. The breakfast with half board included any item from the extensive menu. For dinner I suggest the fish wrapped in banana leaf if you have the opportunity. This dish was a bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants in Varkola, but well worth the extra cost.

Please note that the hotel is a 15-minute walk from the main Varkola beach. We enjoyed being away from the busy shops and restaurants (while still close enough to walk or take a rickshaw). However, if you want to be right on the main beach, this is not the hotel for you.
