We chanced upon Green Palace after arriving at (and promptly leaving) the place we were originally booked into which turned out to be a building site.
Green Palace rooms are large, with great air conditioning, TV's, balconies and really clean bathrooms with great showers. Rooms are cleaned every say so there is a real hotel feel about the place although staff were really helpful at all times.
We had laundry done for a reasonable price and the manager even went over to the train station to pick up tickets for us to save us the trouble. It's room only at Green Palace but there are so mnay nice cafe's a stone's throw from the front door that this wasn't a problem.
Varkala is really relaxed and a good spot for chilling out, reading, splashing around in the sea etc.
A top tip is to bring a little torch with you as without fail there are power cuts each night,. Green Palace has a back up generator but the restaurants etc don't and the cliff top path is quite uneven. On our first night we picked our way back in the dark but lots of people had tiny torch key rings etc which would have made it much easier!
