Attention cheaters !!! The booked apartment was overbooked, supposedly only for 1 night and we were in a 8m room, no problem. The next day the change of accommodation should take place, now was supposedly the guest of the apartment on the beach, on his return, the room would be ready. Well, it was clear that the apartment was doubly forgiven and you lied to us briskly and after this statement on my part turned away the owner, including "assistants" from Belarus grinning without comment. Finally on the part of mektoub on booking, we would not have arrived and a cancellation fee was charged. I have not experienced anything like this during my 7 stays in India. Stay away, there are a lot of great alternatives in Varkala!

I spent 4 nights here with my wife and 2 children. The owner, Rafik, is one of the most wonderful human beings I have met, and has left a lasting impression on me. His breakfasts were made with love and were delicious. Mektoub is practically right behind the idyllic Odayam Beach, and comprises of 3 buildings with around 10 rooms. The rooms are simple, stylish and clean. Swimming in the sea was safe and the beach was pretty clean. Mektoub is a 20 minute walk to the bustle of Varkala cliff. Go stay there.

The rural location provided an interesting and peaceful setting for a relaxing stay; we especially appreciated the shaded balcony with a view over the ocean and local activity ..Easy access to other dining options and the busier North Cliff was a plus. Although recent environmental events have affected the waterfront, there is still a small swimmable beach. We appreciated having two rooms and two bathrooms, but the kitchenette was of very limited use, except for the refrigerator, due to minimal equipment. Our host Rafik ( perfect English!) made us feel at home and the rest of the staff were helpful and cheerful.

The rooms overlook a grassed area with palm trees, a short walk from a small beach. At the rear are rice paddy fields. It is a very relaxing place. The rooms are very simple with a fan and mosquito net, bathroom but no hot water. Our room had a very dodgy lock which we were assured would be replaced but never was. The breakfast was very poor, a small bowl of chopped fruit and inedible toast and not as shown on their web page. There is now a massive stone breakwater which provides a small sheltered beach but the waves are very strong. We had to ask for water and to have our rooms cleaned.

This was my favourite stay in Kerala - it had amazing scenery, tranquillity and lovely food. It is very remote, but far nicer than the busy North Cliff area and less touristy which we preferred. We caught rickshaws into Varkala and the rest of the time just relaxed on hammocks and by the sea. The rooms are small, clean, and the hot water was a bit hit and miss - but that didn't matter to us. The host is lovely and helpful, and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The local scenery is lovely - rice paddies behind, lily pond at the side, the sea a hundred yards away and water buffalo happily grazing on the grass (and wallowing in the river). I would definitely recommend thisplace if you want R & R and amazing scenery. A much appreciated place to relax on our otherwise busy and hectic trip.
