good service good room and good prices
recommended.actually akhil was beyond my expectation.they have got an awesome swimming pool and clean rooms.they almost provide each and every facilities like room cleaning,restaurant,beer parlour,even yoga classes and ayurvedic treatment and a good laundry service.and we never faced a bad experience there.i can strongly recommend rajapark for those who need a quiet and calm atmosphere.they have got a wonderful staff,they never say no to you,whatever you need you can tell to reception manager nitin,and he will fulfill all your needs.rajapark maynot be luxurious destination,but it is simply superb.

We had made the reservation for five nights, but when we saw the place, we wanted instantly to stay there additional nights. The hotel area is beautiful with green garden and very nice, clean and quite big pool. Although all the five people in my group were adults, this place would be most suitable for families with kids too. The restaurant was very nice and the food was delicious.
We stayed at the rooms that were situated in the hotel buildings middle of the area, and although they were nice and clean (and hot water was available) there were also more luxurious rooms and cottages available.
Also there were yoga classes (the teacher was really good) and ayurvedic treatments available in the hotel area. I would recommend this to families, but also to those backpackers that want to have some luxury during there travels in India.

I have stayed at Akhil three times; 2006, 2007 and 2012, and I have always been satisfied.

Hotel arranges airport pick-up. Staff is friendly and attentive, atmosphere is calm, pool is clean, wifi is free. Five minutes walking to the cliff/beach.

On-site restaurant is relatively quick, service is friendly, but the prices are a little bit higher than some other restaurants along the cliff, at least for breakfast items. However, the Jamaican Ginger Beer is the best in Varkala Beach.

Stayed in A/C cottage with hot water this time. Air conditioning is high quality (Whirlpool) and working. Also fan and hot water was working.

In January 2012 I stayed at Akhil. This was my third visit. The hotel and grounds are very quiet while still being well positioned within easy walking distance of the beach. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The staff are always pleasant and Rajesh (Food and beverage manager) and Manu (Front office) in particular go out of their way to be helpful. The restaurant food can be recommended. There is a lovely pool with a pleasant garden surrounding it.
