Rooms are really bad The website says it's a pet friendly place but it's not. Rooms are stinky. The restaurant is good though. You can get a vast variety of food at reasonable prices. The sea food is awesome as well as the breakfast options.

Budget Property, awesome ocean view rooms, Rooftop restaurant with a sea view, clafouti has all the ingredients to charm you. The property is beautiful, clean, hospitality awesome. The best thing about varkala is that it is quiet, yet having a carnival like atmosphere, love the place and the resort.

The first impression was not very good. The front desk guy was not very happy to receive us as we made our booking via MakeMyTrip and was bold enough to mention that their commission when booked via MakeMyTrip was very less. I have booked via MakeMyTrip for quite a while and never heard this. But we were on our vacation...
