My friend and I stayed at Varkala Marine Palace for a week in March 2017 and we had a great time. The staff could not have been more helpful. They were friendly and attentive and always happy to go the extra mile to make our stay more comfortable. They offer Ayuverdic treatments and yoga onsite which is great and the...

Second time at this wonderful place. The ambience is so fantastic. Located just by The beach so that you can hear The waves coming im. The rooms are big and clean. Try The ones on The second floor for a great view. The staff with Mr. Bhashkar in charge are really serviceminded and nice! Once again, great! :)

We stayed here for 5 nights and I cannot recommend this hotel enough! The location is idyllic, right beside the beach and by the cliff front which offers a variety of restaurants and shops which are very appealing to tourists and locals. The interior of the apartments is authentic yet comfortable and you really feel as though you get a...

We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our time in Varkula. We were initially very disappointed as our bedroom was SO basic and depressing (our fault for going for a cheap room!) We changed to a much nicer room the next morning with a great veranda - we were also supplied with beach mats and towels, which were appreciated....

We stayed here for four nights - in one of the 'heritage' rooms on the first floor of the main building. The room was really beautiful, with a vaulted wood-panelled ceiling - one of the hugest beds I have ever slept in and a wonderful view over the garden to the sea in the distance. The rooms were beautifully maintained...

This hotel is right next to the beach with a restaurant overlooking the beach. Varkala beach is long with the cliff at one end which is the main part for tourists. This hotel is at the other end which is used more by the locals. The rooms are divided into overlooking the beach and garden view. We had a garden...

They are even better ... the new beds are beautifully big and comfortable, the thickest mattresses I've ever seen. Bhaskar, although we didn't see much of him as...
