We spent three nights here as part of a tour of Kerala. The rooms are big and the second floor has a long balcony, with the end room benefiting from a terrace area that is largely private. The host is very welcoming and being set back from the strip means that all of the hotel is very peaceful at night...

Pro: Staff guy was awesome! Very nice and very helpful. Cons: Toooo many bugs!!! No mosquito nets on the windows, only for the bed. I had a giant spider, lizard, small bugs and tons of ants in my room. Only in the morning I discovered many dead ants in my bed, under the blanket... WiFi was very weak and often...

I stayed at Jikki's for 2 weeks a yoga retreat with my wife and a small group from England. The room was basic and cleaned regularly, although the mosquito net needed to be renewed. The location was excellent with easy access to good restaurants, an excellent beach and shopping. Beware swimming in the sea, especially to the left side of...

Jicky's is set back from the Varkala cliffs, surrounded by coconut palms and other guest houses. We only met Nigat, one of the staff, who was charming. Our room on the top floor looked delightful: spotlessly clean with naive green landscapes painted on the white walls. At night the room was quiet but very hot, even with the fan on...

You will get a friendly and helpful reception from the staff at Jicky's Nest. Various rooms at various prices, all are scrupulously clean and the hot water is available all day. Location is good, nice and quiet and only couple of minutes from the cliff top path. A very good budget choice.

Very helpful manager. Clean room with clean linen etc. 1 minutes walk to clifftop restaurants, stalls and stairs to beach. Wifi ok but can be flaky but thats usual for that area. Our accommodation was 1250 then changed to another room for 1000 rupee. Would recommend.

At Jicky's Nijad is a very nice, helpful host and a huge football fan, if you guys are sport enthusiasts. The place is clean and it is right next to the beach. even-though it is very quiet. Sometimes power goes off but it is not a big issue, we travel for other reasons.

A group of seven of us were looking for a quiet location but minutes from the life of Varkala's cliff top. We found Jicky's ticked these boxes. In a little oasis set back from the cliff, we found a little Oasis to spend our evenings with roof top yoga for the mornings. Rooms are simple yet spacious and clean. Hot...

Being at the seaside, it's nice to have the room cleaned daily to get rid of the sand and that's the best thing of this place. The position is not on the cliff and the garden and the palm garden could be kept much better to offer clients the chance to enjoy the relaxed location (not even a chair, empty...
