I recently visited Hill View Beach Resort in a group of 20 people and was blown away by the attentive and efficient service. The staff were friendly and helpful, for example they organised 10 scooters for us with one hour notice! The restaurant served delicious food, both Indian and Western (we tried both) and offered us split bills to make...

This is a great Varkala property! Strolled along the main road of North Cliff looking for a good place to stay among the myriad of budget/backpacker/bungalow/hotel confusion, and stumbled into Hill View Beach Resort - pleasantly surprised! The front gardens are lovely, full of flowers, avocado trees, and a small fountain. The property is close enough to the cliff to...

We had a great time calling Hill View home for 4 nights in touristy Varkala! While the strip is full of relentless shop/restaurant owners vying for business, Hill View was the perfect respite, its staff completely down-to-earth, warm, friendly and completely responsive to any request. We moved rooms after the first night to get a better view and were thrilled...

This small hotel is located on the cliff top near to all the cafes. The rooms are large with probably a little too much furniture in ours, but still comfortable. The bathroom was large with a huge bath and good shower. Importantly there was loads of hot water. Monsoon when we were visiting so no need for A/C. Fan was...

Perfect location, very near to the beach. The garden is amazingly green. There are a lot of shops and eating possibilities in the surrounding. Clean and cosy room. The restaurant next to the hotel was good and cheap, but we have to wait 45 minutes for our food...

Clean rooms, close to the beach and the main strip, helpful and kind staff, good laundry service. The only thing I can complain about is the wifi, it seems to be worse at this hotel than many of the bars and other hostels surrounding.

We had a good stay here at one of the deluxe room. They also provide cottages which have much bigger room. One of the advantage is that you don't have to walk long for a restaurant. There is one in front of the hotel and several within 50 meters from the room. Except night there will be someone at reception...

Located on the promenade the hotel is still quiet. On the front line it has two 2-storey buildings with balconies (we stayed here) and deep inside the territory there are some chalets with terraces and garden. Rooms have anti-mosquito nets on the windows so you are able to breath fresh air at night. Breakfasts are served in Cafe del' Mar...
