We stayed here for one night. We stayed in off season so there is no other tourist is there. Swiming pool is not clean or green colour at that time. Services also average. but they arrange a motorbike for us. May things change at season.

Thiruvabadi Beach Retreat has a superb location at the end of North End Down Cliff. An isolated beach just a few meters away from the resort. Swaying palms all around the place and surrounded by a lot of food options. Only drawback is lace of in-house restaurant. Nonetheless .. a great place to spend a couple of days at Varkala.

I swim for exercise and it was the main reason I was drawn to this hotel. It's big enough for lap swim exercise. I was very happy with the pools condition and maintenance. Our overall stay was pretty good here. The hotels design and layout is unusual and we found that appealing. We didn't realize they were in the middle...

The resort is a scam and a disaster! Our worst hotel experience during 50 years of travelling. Our main reasons for complaints are three: false information on the website, lack of service and hygiene. Website Restaurant. There was no restaurant. They only served a poor breakfast with no options. You had to remind to get what was included. Private beach....

Stayed here for 2 nights.. Big rooms with very nice view and a well maintained pool.. Quite near to the bustling cliff side and yet far enough to get you the peace and calm.. The rooms themselves add value to your trip.. A nice place to live with friends as well as family..

Stayed here for 2 nights. Friendly staff, large room with pool and sea view. Very nice pool! A little bit away from the action on the cliffs (15min walk). Near black beach (very quiet). You will need transport for sightseeing but I was traveling on a motorbike

Easy walk to the beach, nice beach. Very nice view from my room. The price was fair, it was off season. The first 3 days the pool was good, then because of rain and no sun, the water turned green. We were unable to swim the last 3 days of our stay. We were told they would take credit card...

We were due to stay here in April 2014 for 7 nights. Due to a problem with our debit card we were unable to book online so telephoned the hotel the day before check-in to arrange a reservation and here we agreed a price too. Upon arrival at the hotel in early evening around 7pm the hotel was badly lit...
