The location is on a slightly secluded part of the cliff but restaurants and shops are reachable within minutes by foot.

I had room 112 and the view was as good as it gets.

The room itself was neat and clean. AC and water heater worked fine. It could probably use a shelf and couple of hooks for clothes and things - it would be a minimal investment to make it a lot better.

The daily housekeeping as mentioned on Expedia didn't show up any of the four days I were there, but to be fair I didn't ask for it nor wanted it.

WiFi is extremely poor. After one day I just used mobile data! since the hotpot disappeared or had way lower bandwidth than 4G. Some of the days it didn't even show.

The restaurant it completely dead. Check review for Oceans grill by me.

The pool is very nice and tidy. A very nice way to cool down during the warmest hours.

All staff were all very friendly.

I'd definitely use this place again if I came back to Varkala.

My family and I stayed at this lovely, peaceful resort last week for a day. We had a wonderful and relaxed stay. The manger Mr Suresh Kumar was very helpful and attended to all our needs. He gave us a free upgrade room from deluxe to Ilam. The room and toilet was very neat and clean. The swimming pool was extremely well kept. The restaurant served hot and tasty food. All the staff at the reception and the restaurant ( specially Ajin) were very polite and helpful. Mr Suresh also arranged a complimentary head massage for us. The location is also lovely and the sunset view is breathtaking.
We had a wonderful stay and look forward to coming again. Highly recommended.

Came to Sunview after it was recommended to us by a couple we met for 30 minutes on our travels. The hotel only had 1 night available at the time but we ended up staying 6 thanks to their hospitality. Suresh was amazing at helping to book stuff even if I did keep changing plans. Plenty of yoga, bars and great restaurants around and of course the beautiful sea x Clean and tidy rooms, nice refreshing pool. Nice hearty breakfast- mainly local food but eggs to order, toast, cereal and fruit.... what more could you want. Absolutely loved this hotel, the staff and most of all Varkala.... we will be back x

Dear Mr.Doron Gimshi / Mrs.Ester Frid,

Greetings from Sunview Beach Resort,Varkala !!!

Thank you for taking a moment to review us on tripadvisor. At Sunview Beach Resort we continuously strive to provide the very best of product and services to our guests.And we noticed your comment and we understood that you are claimed for the hotwater in bathroom,am i right Sir/Madam?And all our rooms are equipped with Geyser for hotwater.And i think probably you didn't switched it.And we have give you the day's cheaper rate with breakfast.And we provided free salads also as per your request when it was not included.Its a just matter of making a call for the hotwater problem.But you reviewed us badly in Tripadvisor purposely.You booked for a filthy room near to our property because of cheap rate.And finally we taken you only just because of your driver.He regularly brings Guests to us.Otherwise we would not.Any way thank you much for your bad comment.

Warm Regards,
