We have recently booked the hotel on 9th to 12th of July 2022. My experience with this hotel is horrible and life taking, since I got locked in bathroom for one hour. In middle of night I woke to use rest room and I closed to the door from inside and got locked 🔒 and could not open the door from inside. By the time i was locked my husband was sleeping and was not aware that I am locked. There is phone inside the bathroom but no one was receiving a call. By the time my husband woke up by my screaming he tried to open the door with outside key but it could not help us . he went down to find some person on the staff who can help us to get me out of bathroom. my husband found one person to help us and he tried every possible way to open the door from outside but could not open and finally decided to break the door. by the time he was break thr door the noise was too much so entire hotel people got disturbed and could not sleep properly and i was alone locked inside the bathroom and could not tolerate the noise it was making while breaking thr doo. it was life taking experience for me . i would not recommend this hotel to anyone . its horrible and life taking experience. i was finding my self help less inside the bathroom and its was horrible one hours of my life. please please be aware of this kind of hotel .. i was lucky so i came out of bathroom alive .. if you care for your loved once. never eve prefer this hotel. apart from all horrible experience the view everyone is talking about is not at tall good . its not at tall beach vie. and you cant even stand of beach side of seat on thr beach side since there are lots of pandals and they will be performing some pooja and all pooja stuff they put into beach side…
Star hotel located at a prime religious spot. The beach here is the place where the people of the state disperse the Ashes. Great view of the sea from the room and rooftop restaurant. A decent swimming pool.
A great place to stay with kids. They have a clean pool and the beach is so easily accessible, you can see it from the window and choose to go based on the crowd. Nearby attractions - Varkala Cliff, Kappil Beach (Estuary). Roads aren't great just like all other great tourist attractions of Kerala.
Booked a room at Hindustan Resort on agado.com paying Rs6000 on Christmas Day. I received a confirmation email as well. Needless to say i had high hopes. Unfortunately the series of events that transpired was both a massive letdown and daylight robbery. On arrival i was told that there was no room and that they were fully booked. My waving around a confirmation letter was of no avail. They flat told me to follow it up with agado.com. Catch is that Agoda.com is not based in India. They have zero helplines or assistance except a useless bot that is a case-study on how not to use AI in customer relation. I dont know whose fault it was but i do know that there was zero sincere effort in helping me contact agoda or make things right. I asked for a letter that said that i had turned up and the booking was deied and even that was given. I know only a few things for sure 1. I lost Rs 6000 of my hard earned money. 2 My day was ruined. Moral of the story : Book with Agoda at your own risk. I wont comment on the property but they on first look they didnt seem like the most helpful people. Pathetic.…
The hotel is located right next to Papanasam beach and it's just a 5 minute walk to the beach. The hotel is about 2-3 km from Varkala Cliff. All rooms are sea view with all basic amenities. The hotel has a restaurant on the fifth floor. The rooms are spacious and well kitted. The only flaw was that the room was very damp and smelled of fungus. The balcony and windows were dirty and smelled very bad due to dampness and bird leftovers. The breakfast had a good spread and it was on order due to COVID restrictions. The hotel has swimming pool for adults as well as children, which is well maintained. Giving a three star just because of lack of maintenance, which the hotel can improve. Otherwise worth a one day stay.
View from Hotel is nice but quality of service provided by Hotel are definitely not value for money. No proper ac cooling so they arranged table fan. Definitely not expecting if you are paying for 4-star hotel. Exhaust was not working. For one day stay, we had switched our room still the same issue. No proper car parking space, tap leakage in bathroom, ants in room, no proper bedsheets, breakfast was also not good. Afterall one can avoid this property. Not at all looks like a 4-star one. It is like 2-star hotel provides much better facility than this hotel. Totally Avoidable.
We stayed here for 3 days..and breakfast ws included in the menu..we came around 10 in the morning for breakfast and we were served cold food..we ordered masala dosa and idli and chutney..he took an hour to serve and on asking the waiter to change the food he just microwaved the dosa..and took another 1 hour to serve idli and chutney.. pathetic service in terms of food really..if there was a negative star possible ni would have given that.. pathetic.. please don't eat here..and save your time and go to some other restraunt..
My worst hotel experience till date.. Unwashed linens, cleaning was very poor and waist bins with waist left unattended. Poor quality and worst service in restaurant. No proper AC , Hot water for name sake..my half time during the stay waisted in fixing basic issues. The hotel needs complete renovation before it takes any guest.
Has a great stay at the hotel with my 10 best friends. Beautiful surrounds and reat location near cliff. Everything was clean. Staff was always helpful! Hotel is on the sea shore. Amazing views from every room. Food is ok.
An amazing experience and a wonderful look from the hill top and sea shore. The place is also known for annual rituals ( called as PAPANASAM). You can get good local & international food from the surrounding restaurants. Can reach by by road/ train. Nearest railway station VARKALA SHIVAGIRI. This place is known to the the Saint SRI NARAYANA GURU and his ashramam.
