First of all a big thanks to Vineeth for making our stay in varkala a wonderful experience. The rooms were clean i even got an upgrade to a cottage with a direct view to the beach.

I stayed from 7 to 9 Feb. Rooms are renovated but facilities are not proper. Management needs to give attention on cleanliness. Hotel has a nice sea view which is its best point. Food is good in their restaurant. And staff is cooperative.Overall it was good stay.

The rooms were renovated and the facilities are not up to the mark. The restaurant is costly when compared to the other hotels. The hotel location is very good. This hotel may preferred as the last choice

We went to Varkala for the New year's and booked this place as it looked nearest to the sea. And boy, weren't we right!
