Room with sea view. The gardens are great. However there is no swimming pool and that is a big put off as the =beach itself is a good 15min walk down the cliff. The restaurant is a separate business next doors with the resultant confusion between the hotel and the restaurant about the free breakfast. This should not have happened.

Very nice resort. Were here for a month. Good AC and cable tv. Cleaning staff were excellent. The food in restaurant was good. The fresh fish was so good. The restaurant staff were so friendly. My only issue was the very spotty Wifi. We had an ocean view.

Room Tip: Many hotel options in Varkala. Stay here a few nights while you check out other hotels.

I visited clafouti on 28th February 2018, we booked two see view room and confirmed over the phone because it was a special day for us.
When we reached there they gave us a room which has no view at all. When I asked for change the room, he said we have only these room left. Its up to you if you want it ot not. Else you can pay 10000rs extra and get a better room. I was shocked to hear the response.
The only good things was surrounding but you can find other places as well which are btter and cheaper.

I stayed in heritage villa for two nights. The room size is very small but it is okay for two adults. The cleanliness is not that great floor mats were soiled. The room lacks lots of basic amenities like water bottle, electric kettle etc. For this price range they should upgrade the facilities they provide. The resort has good parking space the roads to reach the resort was very narrow.
Clafouti restaurant is one of the best in cliff, they provide wide range of cuisines.
The evening sea food is at its best the cost depends on the current market rate.

Hi

We actually stayed at the Akhil Resort which is a part of the hotel group. After our first day of trying restaurants in the area we tried the restaurant at Clafouti.

My advice is to forget the other restuarants and stick to Calfouti as we felt it was excellent. The food was great with a variety of seafood at good prices, the staff were brilliant and super friendly (Thanks Max, Amit and the boss 'Raj').

Every night there was delicious selection of seafood to choose from and the service was friendly, and fast. It was also a 'good vibe' restuarant with lots of nice people.

So, I highly recommend you at least visit and give it a shot. Enjoy.
