The stay here at Haiwa was just satisfactory. The room was not very clean but the staffs managed to clean it before we could enter in. It offers free WiFi as well. It's location is very prompt as it is near the Varkala Cliff and beach. Overall, it's just a satisfactory experience at this hotel. Services could be done in...

The room was disgusting (see photos). The floor and sheets at least were clean but the rest of the place was absolutely not (see photos). The "ad" for the place said breakfast was included but it wasn't. This hotel was quite far from the cliff, it was a bit of a walk to get to the cliff/beach. The only reason...

We stayed in April 2014 and had such a great time here. The rooms were clean and cozy as well as the public areas. Shaila (excuse spelling) the manager was so welcoming, friendly, professional and extremely helpful and nothing was a problem for her. In all a great hotel, walk to the main North Cliff area is a lovely little...

Very plain and nothing to do with beach. Quite far away from the cliff. No hot water, no nice pillows and not the best breakfast. Plus the place where we got the breakfast was looking more like a place to wait for the bus. After one night we changed our location.

Do not expect resort facilities. The Haiwa Resort is a B&B with basic facilities. It has an unusual high standard of cleanliness. There are no gounds outside at present. But they do have massage on site & free wifi. The rooms & bathrooms are clean & comfortable, a reasonable size. No toiletries in bathroom just soap. Breakfast is taken on...

The service is terrible. No phone, no tv, no person to help. we were told that breakfast would not be given. We had to show our booking which clearly mentioned breakfast. Breakfast served was of poor quality. They refused to clean our room, till we forced them. There were no mats, bathroom tiles were broken, hot water was not available....
