Really enjoyed staying here...great spot on the holy beach, nice size room with balcony...even had pigeon chicks just outside the balcony. Breakfast was good and varied, dinner in the restaurant also very good. Only problem we had is that we had to leave at 3am to get a flight. I tried to check out the night before and paid my bill however they undercharged me and decided to call me at 11pm that night to inform me they had undercharged and that I would need to pay the remainder when I left at 3am...no problem paying - just really didn't appreciate having such a late call waking us all up! Other than that hick up - stay was great and free internet too!

Room Tip: Choose a large room with balcony or the pool side room.

We boked on site and stayed 5 nights in a Executive room with balcony and sea view (January 2014). We payed 5 500 Rupies/night, tax included.
Nice and clean rooms with a stunning view. The Hotel is situated on the South cliff. Very interesting to sit on the balcony and watch the local people who played, sang, and have fun on the beach. Plenty of restaurangs just around the corner. North cliff can be reached by foot within 5 minutes walk. South cliff is more relaxing than the North cliff, but has got several nice restaurang serving really good and very cheap Indian disches.

We came to varkala a day earlier than expect so were referred to this hotel as i previousl bookede hotel had no vacancies. The view is superb of the beach, sunset, Hindu offerings. Otherwise it is pretty grotty. I think it is appropriate to inform others that the north cliff is where all the action/atmosphere and although we are not staying there, we are making our way up there for all meals and sunsets.

We stayed 3 nights in the hotel. Excellent location, just in front of the beach where HIndus do offerings all day round and close to the cliff with high diversity of restaurants and shops.

We wish to thank the manager and all the staff for the excellent service provided when one person in our group had an accident on sea (nothing important finally) and required medical treatment. The car of the hotel was immediately put at our disposal, the driver helped us with all paperwork in hospital (excellent care an brand new installations) and all of the staff were attentive at anything we could require in the following days.

I can't believe how good some of the reviews are for this place - which is why I stayed there in the first place! Totally the wrong location - the place to be is on the cliff. The room was dated and not clean. Stains on the floor, cobwebs, bird droppings on the veranda, uncut grass, rusty and peeling veranda furniture, rusty light in bathroom, damp in corner of room and I found a cockroach (please see attached photos). When I complained, the staff laughed. A horrible experience.

Room Tip: Don't stay here unless you are used to living in filth
