Fabulous positioning of the Resort . Spacious clean and confortable rooms. Very nice restaurants. Surprisingly attentive stuff (We left our iphones on the table and the room service boy called the administration so that they put them to the safety box). Great dinner and breakfast.There is no words for Deshadan varkala Staff is as always obedient. food was great.

We had a good time here. The restaurant makes good food too... Although the buffet breakfast isn't something to write home about. Distance from the beach shouldn't be a factor coz the walk is very short.

Good small resort. 10 minutes walk to Varkala cliff- a must watch place with thrilling view of sea. Food was good. Kerala Specialities were good (veg). You can Banana fry. Value for money. Only problem is going to Cliff/coming from Cliff during night time.

Its a simple hotel, is clean, provides a good service. Its not actually close to the beach, a bit of a walking distance. Restaurants close at around 9:00 pm. Tried their breakfast, its mostly catered for non-Indian palate, which is fine. The Wi-Fi is steady, not high speed but good enough. Accessibility is only in the lobby and pool area....

After 4 weeks travelling around India, the Deshadan was a good place to chill. Rooms are pleasant, a/c & fan. Breakfasts were good, staff were cheerful & always helpful. My only adverse comment, is the swimming pool needs some TLC. I stupidly left a pair of walking boots in the taxi at Cochin Airport. I rang up the hotel, the...

This simple hotel was comfortable and the rooms are spacious, all set out around the pool. We visited out of the peak season so more or less had a private pool. Restaurant was fine, although we only had breakfast there, eating lunch and dinner down by the cliff where there were plenty of restaurants with sea views. The staff were...
