I don't get how this place received so many decent reviews. It may have been in good condition ten years ago, but those years are long gone. Every cabinet seemed to be somewhat falling apart. There was a refrigerator that didn't work. There was an ant problem, especially in the bathroom. The sheets were old, spotted and frayed. The AC...

A highly recommended resort which has a stunning view of the sea. The rooms were extremely clean, staff was courteous and the complimentary breakfast was great as well.. and the best part is.. you can park your car right inside the resort. You just go ahead and book with no second thoughts.. Also, Esakki (resort manager) was extremely courteous and...

We came here for breakfast a year ago and was the first place we went this time in Varkala. The food is delicious!! So are the coffee drinks! The view of the beach is fantastic as well. There's a nice ocean breeze and they have fans. It's my favorite restaurant in Varkala.

The property is located right in the center of the North cliff and is accessible by car from the Helipad entry. The property is beautiful and of the better properties on the cliff. We had a big spacious room to ourselves. The view from the balcony was great as well. The Hotel is very close to all the best cafes....

We arrived here having already passed a few days in Varkala, so we knew exactly what we were getting. The beds are big, linen and towels clean, as was the toilet, bath and sink. If you're expecting 5* western style rooms you will be disappointed - we thought it was a lovely place to stay. When choosing our room we...

The hotels enjoys a fabulous location right in the middle of the North Cliff. There is access for taxi drop off and pick up, but it really is just a footpath, so very quiet. Lots of cafes and restaurants are within a few minutes walk, and nearby some steep, and unfortunately very poorly maintained, stairs lead down to the beach....

This was my third visit to the hill view resort. The food is great and the staff are very friendly. The cottages are spacious however the bathrooms and toiletries could be better. If you are visiting / staying at Varkala I would recommend the Cafe Del Mar restaurant which is run by the hill view resort.
