Did not get pick up at the airport after having more than 4 emails to confirm pick up. Not most comfortable if you arrive at 4am. We end up taking taxi to the hotel. The room that we boked was good size with decent shower and great air conditioner. The only thing that we did not like was the bed....

We booked over new year and paid 2700 rs on the 31st . unfortunately we did not like the room as other reviewers. I would raccomend to avoid the small ground floor rooms.Because they are ddark and smelly. It can even at this location become quite noisy in early morning due to guest leaving and arriving. The staff was friendly...

We were lucky enough to book this hotel through booking.com as there was nothing left in our price range in Varkala as we booked 4 days before New Year! The rooms are big, very clean and secure and 5 min walk to the beach but far enough away to be nice and quiet. Wifi available in reception, very friendly staff...

varkala is a lovely place. and haiwa beach residency is a perfect solution to fancy it. employees are very supportive, rooms are nice and clean and the fact that the facility is not on "the cliff" (the area where all the bars and restourants are), but just 5 minutes walking from it, guarantee a far better quality of sleep. they...

We stayed here for over a week after looking a dozens of options in Varkala. It was by far the best and we got an excellent deal on an a/c room. The rooms are very clean and the whole building is quite new. It is in an excellent location, just a few minutes away from the cliff which can get...

Quite a cheap hotel in a quiet location just two minutes from the beach of the northern cliff and the city center. Spent several nights on New Year's holidays. Staff friendly and made a small Christmas party as a gift. Helped with the organization of small water travel down the rivers. The hotel is fully justifies the price.
