“Jickys the best in Kerela”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

I have been staying at Jickys Rooms for the past 15 years on my visits to India. the rooms are clean & comfortable and there is always a warm friendly welcome from Minni& Oscar the owners.& staff There is nothing they will not do for you to make your stay the best experience as well as helping you with your onward travel arrangments too. Over the years the gardens around Jickys have been added too & it is now a green oasis of tranquility.

Close to the helipad, just take the first small alley and follow it to the end. Between the palm trees and close to the cliffs, the beach and to the strip of restaurants (yet far away enough). The owner is one of the most friendly and helpfull women I met. Clean, nice, absloutely recommendable. And the open air restaurant that is part of the hotel and situated at the beginning of the path from the helipad is one of the few genuine vegetarian restaurants!

Really enjoyed Varkala and Jicky's. We stayed in1 room 100 meters from main building. The room was clean and AC was very good. The location is also good, 2 minutes walking from the cliffs and the beach, but in a quiet place. The service was also good, breakfast was average.

My son and I stayed in one of the cottages at Jicky´s at the beginning of March this year. The room was pleasant and very clean. There was a mini patio overlooking a pretty garden with trees and potted plants. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would be happy to stay at Jicky´s again. Good value for the price.

Super clean rooms, the cleanest we experienced during our 4 weeks travelling in South India!!
Very friendly owners, taxi picked us up from airport at 4 a.m as arranged and they even let us sleep in a spare room till our own room was ready later that morning.
Their vegetarian restaurant a couple of minutes walk away serves delicious and reasonably priced food and run y very friendly staff.
