I been in this place for two nights with my family and we have a very good time. The location is great and rrhe room is nice. There was beautiful garden, but for my opinion the restaurant is the best part of the place, with really nice workers, good food and amazing view to the sunset. Have fun!

Classic location,nice ambience, gr8 view from restaurant..yummy food dishes of all sorts at reasonable price.. But stay is overpriced for facilities provided & services vary according to class of room booked! Still one of the best places there..though many cheap newer ones are coming..

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.

White walls, white sheets on bed at a corner of the room, nothing in the room walls or TV or anything - room decor is boring. no coffee maker, or water bottles provided - breakfast was paid. water was provided...

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.
