The hotel location is good and everything in varkala can be explored by walking along the cliff road. We found this only hotel which has a pool facing see in the area. The pool is small and shallow but good for spending time with kids. In case you do not plan to use pool you may find other hotel with similar rooms along the cliff road at better price. Hotel charges you for water bottles (more than MRP) even after high on tariffs. The rooms were good but bathrooms were very basic. In one of the night, we faced sound disturbance from nearby bar/shack. In case you need pin drop silence for sleeping better, do request not to give you rooms at the hotel side adjoining the shacks. We stayed at the property for 3 nights. At the first night, the AC was not working properly depsite checking in late. I got a new room next day and a small discount (15% on 1 night rent) for the faulty AC for the day one (after bit of angry words). Despite all the complaints, I feel the hotel is good if you plan to stay at a decent place in varkala. The breakfast was good and the staff at the restaurant were very good. The location is definitely better than other high rated property in Varkala.
