We stayed at Jicky's for a week and found it the perfect base. The roomz are clean with hot water, the people around super friendly and you are close to the beach. Couldn't have made a better choice!!

The hotel is set back from the cliff which is nice as you wake up to the sound of the birds each day. The rooms themselves however are very average/poor. For the same price (or less!) it is possible to stay in much nicer hotels in Varkala. The English speaking manager and cleaners (who spoke no English) were very friendly which was a huge credit to the hotel as the owners seemed like very unpleasant people. The owners never said hello or asked how my stay was despite seeing them every day for almost three months. The eldest son Oscar was sometimes on the main reception but I think he had learning difficulties so he wasn't able to help much with queries. He did seem intent on pointing out the women he found attractive however which was a little uncomfortable for the other guests and myself. My booking for the hotel lasted almost three months and when I asked for a small discount the owner laughed at me then walked off. When it came to leaving the hotel the owner was walking past me as I was putting my suitcase into the taxi and gave no thanks or gratitude for my booking - strange after she knew I had been at the hotel for such a long time! I'm coming back to Varkala again next year for three month's and will be staying elsewhere!...

Yet another great stay at Jickys! It's five years since I last visited but everything about Jickys continues to please me. It's good to be in a quiet area away from the noise of the cliff, yet be in easy distance of restaurants. Staff as always were really helpful and room was cleaned every couple of days. Thanks to everyone for making my extended stay so pleasant.

The standard rooms are great value. We stayed for 10 days with family so also had a garden room which was twice the price but added little - more space and a fridge each room with outside seating area but the fans have not been installed so it gets quite bites mosquitoes in evening) but otherwise the same (unless 3-4 of you want to share as it then becomes better value deal). Mosquito nets provided. Ceiling fans not a/c which I prefer. Hot water was ok. Great location at helipad end of north cliff just behind coffee temple. Vijith just started his daily yoga classes on the roof. I LOVED these and went every morning at 8am (350 rupees per class). Staff/owners Rikesh and Jackson very happy to help sort out everything from car hires to local phone calls for things.

The hotel is not sea facing but is walking distance from Varkala cliff. The basic room is good and there is no proper cleaning process. Actually no one came to clean the room during our stay. Even though breakfast was complimentary as mentioned in the ticket but initially hotel stuff reluctant in providing us the breakfast. But when I showed them that it was mentioned in the ticket, they agreed. The breakfast was ok ok.
