I stayed here for almost a week with my friend. Rooms are basic but you just step outside and see the ocean, what more could you ask for? :) the owners/ guys that work there were soooo helpful and SUPER kind! They really made me feel so welcome and I would probably stay there again because of them. Close to...

Nice little spot on Northern side of the cliff. Very basic, clean and neat. The views are amazing and nice to sit on the porch outside or lie on the hammocks and read a book or soak up the sun and vibrant atmosphere. Staff and owner are very helpful, good people! The laundry service came in handy. I loved the...

We booked this place in first week of August and found it to be a nice property but nothing in the name of service. The kitchen was closed, no room service. The room was not clean, dustbin was full. Bathroom was not clean at all. Its located on north cliff and quite close to the point from where you can...

I was happy staying here for three nights in Varkala. The rooms are basic and the bed a little hard, but the best thing is really the location - it is literally a stone's throw from the cliffs and the all the main shops, bars, cafe and restaurants. My bathroom didn't have a roof which was quite nice for having...

The location is really superb, but don't expect anything on service. We took 4 rooms, and all the 4 toilets were full of cockroaches and spider web. They didn't bother to keep it neat. The rooms are really average and the off season rate they charge is out of the world for what they offer.

5-star rating location. Great value for money. It is just next to the north cliff road. Rooms were well maintained, mosquito-proof, and quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very lovely garden with hammocks.

I stayed at Bamboo Village in January 2016 for almost 2 weeks. It was my first hotel experience in India. I've been traveling 5 months now and I'm coming back to write this review because my stay here was unparallel to anywhere else during my trip in South and Northern India. The staff was exceptionally attentive to my needs. Always...

I stayed for 10 days, it is a very peaceful place, has a great garden with hammocks. Owner and his team are really helpful and friendly. Rooms have little and lovely balconies. Also the environment is very safe I definitely recommend who travels alone.

The Bamboo Village is greatly located on the North Cliff right on the footpath above the see. It has a beautifully maintained garden with many plant and colorful hibiscus flowers. There are hammock stretch between the palm trees waiting for you to swing and chill in them. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
