The location is good, at the end of a small road where it meets the southern cliffs of Varkala Beach. The property appears to be in three parts: a nice Marina Bay Restaurant, a handful of tiny, prison-like cottages behind the restaurant with no views and no breeze from the beach, and about 4 or 5 rooms above some shops. I had one of the rooms whose best feature was that from the window, if I looked sideways, I got a glimpse of the sea. The room was basic, with no airconditioning, dim lighting and several electrical sockets that didn't work (only one socket could be used). Without mosquito net or insect screen on the windows, I was concerned about mosquitoes at night, so I had to spray myself well before going to bed. The mattress was reasonable but the pillows were so thin, they were practically useless. There was no wifi in the room. When I asked, I was told to use the wifi signal from the hotel across the street -- they knew the password! But from that distance the signal was weak and unreliable. There was wifi in the restaurant however. In the bathroom, water pressure was weak, but drainage was good. The towels were old and worn and there were at least three holes in one of them. The floor was a little dusty underfoot. My booking came with breakfast, but I chose to eat elsewhere because I had taken other meals at their restaurant the food was good though the service was quite slow. The restaurant was right on the beach and had lovely views of the sea. I am giving an "Average" score for this hotel only because I got a very good deal, which I suspect was a last-minute price. At the price I got, it was sort-of average value. Any higher price, and I wouldn't say it was value for money.
