Actually we went there for an outing. But the ambience was awesome. It is spacious and beautiful. Clean resort. People are so humble and they make very tasty food too. Rooms are spacious and nice. They have a swimming pool for the enjoyment of the kids. Even though the road to the resort is little small, the resort is very spacious in a huge property. The design resembles traditional Kerala architecture with modern facilities. It's a must visit property. They gave us an awesome breakfast. Value for money deal with them.

Hotel can be little difficult to find when coming at night but it is located very close to varkala cliff. It is a good 3 star hotel. Best aspect about this hotel is the staff which is very friendly and courteous. The hotel manager especially was excellent. They made our tone night stay here a delight. Rooms are ok but clean. Don't expect luxury here which sometimes we thing we will get from photos but it is decent hotel.. The other guests that night were unfortunately rowdy locals which dampened the experience little bit

We went as a 4 people gang, it was a pretty decent stay for that price. The staffs were super friendly, Pretty much clean toilets and atmosphere. The pool water quality was tasted a bit different, that was the only down point I found in the stay. Would recommend Deshadan if you are looking for a Budget pool resort around Varkala Cliff.

We stayed here for 4 nights in February 2020. The staff are superb in every possible way. The poolside rooms are good but getting a tad tired looking. We ate meals here breakfast is ok, lunch and dinner we had 3 meals out of 4 which were really excellent, the 4th was when they had a large party in and they could not cope in the kitchen. Pool is lovely. Yes we would stay again.

I booked to stay here for 2 nights but loved it so much I extended my stay . It is a quiet friendly hotel . The pool is lovely and clean and it never gets crowded. The food in the hotel is very good and the portions are huge , not at all over priced . The room was very comfortable and clean . All of the staff were delightful and so helpful . I’d go back again
