I have mixed feelings about this place
The pluses - Rafiq is a very welcoming host and the rooms clean and are in a beautiful location creating an incredibly relaxing atmosphere, you are well away from the worst of Varkala
The negative - the food is overpriced and of average quality - and as with other reviewers you only really find out the price at the end of your stay.
Overall I would recommend people to stay but would eat elsewhere (inc. breakfast). There are plenty of places nearby.
