“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

This is the perfect place to stay in Varkala, the rooms are huge and amazing, right on the beach, and the staff are all absolutely brilliant! They all speak very good English and are welcoming and friendly, the food is delicious and very affordable. It's easy to walk along the beach/cliff to visit other places but this little private beach gives you a nice little paradise away from it all, definitely recommend staying here!

The location of the cottage was excellent and the view was simply superb. The sea is at your front door you can enjoy the sea at that close proximity. The service was good and the rooms were kept clean. The AC was not good in the cottage which I stayed. The staffs are really helpful. Recommend to visit them for the view of the sea which makes it stand out. A private beach is also available.

My wife and I visited Varkala for the 1st time and Babu (the owner) really made our trip one to remember for a lifetime. He arranged everything from, local sightseeing to the boat trip to the backwaters in alleppey at the best rates possible. He was extremely helpful and the staff was warm and courteous. We had forgotten our passports in the hotel on the last day and left for alleppey, but Babu made sure that we get our passports. The meals we had at the hotel were finger licking good. The fish in a banana leaf is a must try. For the alcoholics, the cocktails are pretty amazing!!! All in all we had an amazing time at the hotel and in Varkala, so kudos to the entire team of Palm Tree Heritage. We will definitely come back again to this place!!!!

Room Tip: Must choose the sea view rooms!!!! The view is pretty amazing

It's a very nice villa. Here we had a private beach, and the whole villa is clean and organized with many plants. The room is furnished by nice wooden furniture. The restaurant of Palm tree had very fresh sea food and they gave nice price! The staffs here are all very friendly. It's worth to spend more days in Palm tree and have a very relax vacation.

We arrived at Palm Tree Heritage without a reservation as the small resort about half a mile away hadn't met our needs. Our two nights at Palm Tree Heritage were great. We had two rooms, and when we pointed out that the a/c didn't work in one of the rooms, staff moved us to one of the new bungalows for no additional charge. The real highlight of Palm Tree Heritage, however, was eating dinner on the beach -- just the loveliest setting possible. Thank you to Babu and everyone.

Babu and his team is fabulous. Best service. Place is heven. Worth recomending to anyone. Food was good, extreamly expensive though. Rooms were spacious and clean. Few alerts though: AC in our room was not effective atall and it was just impossible in the month of May. We were there for 4 days. On the last day of our stay, finaly we were given a different room where everything was fine. Also never book autos or site seeing through them. Even if you do, make sure you pay the Auto upfront and not through Gopal, one of Babu's staff. He charged me 4K for a 2 hour Auto ride per day for 2 days. I would have got an AC INNOVA in that price. All in all good.

Thanks a lot for your interesting review.It seems you conveniently forgot a few things.So now it is our duty to remind them to you.
Firstly your booking was in Palmtree annex,which is our second string sister concern.As we had availability in our main property itself due to some sudden cancellation,we upgraded you to our Family Suite,without charging a single penny extra.It is a newly built suite with brand new air conditioning.Nobody ever complained about the A/C till date.The reason you felt the A/C was ineffective was due to the fact that you were probably keeping the room open most of the time when you sit in the balcony. The suite is right next to the beach and with strong breeze which can heat the room in minutes,but takes a while to cool.
We accept that our restaurant is slightly more expensive than any roadside restaurant due to the fact that unlike few cheap restaurants we don't serve substandard food.Everything that we serve is made of the best quality of ingredients cooked by one of the best chef in varkala.
About the ride,firstly we have to politely remind you that it was not a ride but two day trips for the family of 5,The 4K number is correct but it was not just for the ride.You forgot to say it included boating charges,elephant ride and so on.We just tried to help you by organizing it as a part of our service to satisfy you and not profit oriented.
Again thanks for your feedback,we take it positively and we will make sure to rectify our shortcomings if we have any.
We will try our best to serve you better the next time you stay with us again.
