I was delighted by the exclusive location. All the staff are friendly and provide an efficient service. The bungalows are well appointed and clean. There was plenty of hot water, the air conditioning worked well and the quality of the food was good. I think the most useful attribute was Kunji, the manager. Nothing was too much trouble and his command of English was very sophisticated. Thank you!

Clean rooms in a quiet location a 100 metres from the beach. I had a garden room and it had everything I needed. Lots of place a to eat close by. It’s only a short auto rickshaw ride to the cliff. Super helpful staff and good breakfast included. Enjoyed stay

The lousiest place I had even been. It's a serious sham. There is nothing there. They just fleece you and nothing more. I left in two hours from there. The AC never worked. It was so hot that my pets almost fainted. Request all bit to even think of this place any time . Such a f**ked up place.

The rooms are very small as compared to actual photos. This property in not even beachfront as mentioned by them, there is a tiny dirty pond next to the hotel. The host is very cunning, he will as amount in advance but don’t feel in his trap first take a look of room and then decide. Overall very DISAPPOINTING

The hotel has been rated 4 star but has no amenities of a 4 star hotel. We stayed in Garden View Rooms which was priced at Rs 3100 per night for a twin bedroom. Very poorly maintained property with lots of insects and mosquitoes at night. The bathrooms were stinking. Not recommended for families.

It was really great! The room, personnel and breakfast were beyond any belief! Seaview rooms gave a perfect picturesque view on the beach and sea. The sea itself is within 5 minutes walking. The personnel is very friendly and hospitable.

Stayed here for little over 2 weeks and the word hospitality took on a new meaning for me! Kunji and team made my stay memorable to another degree. They promised me that when I left Varkala my memories would be 'sticky' and surely that's the case. I stayed in the sea facing room on the 1st floor which was decorated mostly in white (my favourite). The entire place has a simplistic yet elegant vibe about it. I could constantly hear the ocean even though the doors and windows were closed. I used to sit on the balcony and have my cup of coffee in the morning and just that experience would relax me for the entire day. Kukku the chef made yummy breakfast every morning (total English style - :D ). They arranged a bike for me so I could visit the cliffs and beaches whenever I wanted. This place is also super close to the beach (like I said I could hear the ocean throughout). Just the vibe of this place is surreal and I would recommend that you definitely visit Mint Inside just to experience the tranquility of the place and the hospitality of the staff. The only reason I rated this 4 stars as I feel they need to improve the washroom and overall cleanliness but that's only because I'm an OCD freak. Point to note - they took care of my concerns the moment I highlighted them. In summary, visit and enjoy your experience at Mint Inside. It's a guarantee you will love it! #grateful #happy #customer

I booked this hotel by using google maps and the hotel pictures. I am certainty NOT disappointed!!!! The rooms are spacious and with a minimalistic decoration, near the beach, near the promenades with shops. The staff was expeditious and efficient, well done!!!! Some tips for the future travelers, the bedrooms with see view are equipped with AC, the breakfast start at 9:00 but they are quite quick on bringing your order. If you can’t stand Arab chants inviting to the mosquee I suggest you a room with Air-conditioning :)
