The place has a good ambience from outside but interior is so mundane. Rooms did not have shelves or glasses. The ambience inside does not much up with its exterior. There arent any blankets or towels either. Food is ok ok. The rooms are overpriced.

We booked the exclusive honeymoon cottage, but we were really disappointed. Hot water was not available , refrigerator, TV was not working. Bed was really poor, and it caused us backaches. You have to walk every time to restaurant because restaurant phone was not working.Spa services were shut down too..We paid more than 11k for the rooms but it was...

The lovely setting of this little café atop a cliff facing the sea makes it one of the best tourist spots - you can watch the sunrise, the sunset, the advent of storm clouds over the ocean and a whole lot of natural sights, sitting in this little restaurant facing the sea. The place has two deck, an upper deck...

Simply amazing resort, which is extremely reasonably priced. Had checked in on July 16 and stayed in 104 Villa, the whether was amazing and the location is simply a delight to your eyes. You would surely love the stroll on pedestrian walkway along the seashore. This is the kind of place where u can sit for hours with no special...

The hotel is on the cliff facing the beach. The room was basic with no TV(although not important). The service was good enough and we spent hours in the restaurant with a great view of the sea. One of my favorite places to stay in Varkala especially for the location.

Had a chance to stay at the Clafouti beach resort in Varkala. The rooms are large and well appointed. It is overlooking the sea and the walkway is next to the resort. Food was also very good and the service nice

The overall rating is good. I am satisfied with the room and its surroundings. The beach view was nice from the top and very easily accessible. recommended stay near Varkala . But Resort's service was average; i didn't affect that much because most of the time we were at beach side. :)

Clafouti beach resort is an excllent choice for a vaction in Varkala. Its located right on the cliff, overlooking the sea and is well suited for a family holiday or otherwise. Must know stuff: The access to most resorts in Varkala is through very narrow, unpaved streets. Be careful if you are driving your SUV's there. The rooms are very...
