Best hotel option in varkala, this one, though it's not without a few issues. The rooms are quite nice and clean, redone in modern colors and with cool showers. We had a nice sea view room but ended up lying awake as an air conditioner made an ungodly racket, like a super loud toilet perpetually flushing. It took them two days to deal with the issue and then they moved us into a room with lots of water damage on the walls. Management was just a bit off its game, though they did give is a discount after my husband caused a fuss; would have been better if it had been offered, not under duress... Anyway the pool is great and warm and the staff generally really sweet. Lots of kids were there, having a blast. You can walk to the cliffside or take a taxi for under a dollar. Views of Palm trees and ocean are great. It's hard to be stressed in this beach town. We'd go again though if in varkala.
