We really enjoyed our 9 days here with the very friendly and helpful staff. Whenever we needed something like fresh towels or bedsheets they were immediately provided with a big smile. The bamboo cottages are about 100 feet from the Varkala North Cliff, so it's very close to restaurants and beach access. There are hot water showers, mosquito net and fans both inside the cabin and outside where the porch is. Wifi signal was a bit difficult at our cabin but we could go near the reception desk area and get a good signal when needed.
