No sheets/blanket to cover, cold water for shower, no AC, no towels- finally owner gave us (2 persons) one towel-but it was dirty, dirty room,etc...better to avoid. Great position, exactly on the Cliff

We had booked 2 rooms in Puthooram through goibibo but when we reached there we realized that since Puthooram was full, they had asked Santa Claus to block 2 rooms. The rooms that Santa Claus resort had blocked for us should be amongst the worst with no ventilation whatsoever. We wanted 2 AC rooms but since they had availability of...

We went during peak season and there were no rooms available. Owner accommodated us in a make shift room. Very friendly and very helpful staff. Location is very good. Very near to the beach and market. Pleasant view from the resort. Only downside was the hassle through online booking. Since there is no booking fee through online portal, make sure...

I liked this place. The room was big and very clean. I stayed for 5 days. It would have been nice if I didn't have to ask for a clean towel after 4 days. There also wasn't any offers for housecleaning as lots of sand from the beach can become an issue after a couple of days. The central part...

I have been many times to Varkala and more than three time to Santa Claus, But this time it was really a different experience all because of the new and dynamic management team (Mr.Randeep Shanker and his colleagues).

We moved here from another hostel because it was in a much better place, had better rooms and was much cheaper. Staff were so lovely and friendly. When we were there they were building a nativity scene and massive santa claus ready for Christmas! The room was nice, clean and had a fan, no a/c. Wifi was fast. It has...

It is a very homelike place. The owner is a very nice and friendly guy, helpful and welcoming. We felt so relaxed here. If you haggle a bit, you can also have a better price.

“I put average for noise levels as the hotel is perched on a cliff top thus you can the waves crashing. which I thought was great but if you would like a quieter room perhaps have a look at the rooms out back you will be giving up your view though!”
