“loved the hotel, staff, and service”
Reviewed 6 September 2007

i am a 50 year old woman who was taking a long break in India. Found Varkala by chance and stayed for Christmas at small guest house but unfortunately on Boxing Day the place was swamped with cockroaches so I packed my bag, ran to find a cleaner place to stay and chanced upon the Green Palace Hotel. The staff were fabulous. I had a v.v. clean double room with balcony - great views of fab gardens and sea. The place was safe, happy and laid on great new years entertainment with fireworks and an elephant. The room service was good, restaurant was great. I became ill with blood vessels (nothing to do with hotel) but they made sure I was taken to local hospital (which was good) with english speaking guide who took me through hospital system. Back at Green Palace, the staff checked on me regularly, organised trips for me, in face, instead of staying 4 days, I stayed 2.5 weeks and hope to return again next year. kathy

As we searched the cliff top locations of varkala , we found Suresh Kumar to be very courteous and not even slightly pushy as can sometimes be the case after you enter an accomodation. The central location of the Green Palace (close to stairs that lead you to the expansive beach) was handy but it was the service of all the staff and especially manager Suresh that made our stay so pleasant. The food in their picturesque garden restaurant was always top class and freshly prepared and also backed up by a fantastic view of the sunset over the horizon. Generally, we found Varkala to be a great place for relaxing massages, lazy days and although restauant service is sometimes slow, it compliments the ambience of what this place is about. Loved it.

While we were in Varkala, we found the Green Palace which looked like a great place to stay. Met the owner and the manager and booked in for the next night. When we turned up with our baggage we were told the room was not available due to unforseen circumstances so were booked in to the hotel next door (Hill View which was totally brilliant). Hill View only had accommodation for 4 nights and we needed somewhere for an extra night so we returned to Green Palace because they were very friendly and we'd mentioned we'd be back. 3 days prior to our needing the room we made a booking. The day before moving we confirmed the booking. On the day of turning up to take our room we were told there were no rooms available and, as the manager was away and hadn't written down our reservation (something he does regularly, apparently) there was nothing the other staff could do except send us on our way.

The advice I would give is pass over the Green Palace Hotel and stay in Hill View which has far superior rooms at similar rates.
