Good service, good a/c, comfortable beds, nice pool, but bathrooms could have been nicer and wifi didn't work in our room. Somewhat noisy in the mornings due to on-site restaurant/neighboring rooms.

10/10 Exceptional

Wonderful location, good amenities
The Deshadan Cliff & Beach Resort was as promised with all amenities including free wifi, parking and swimming pool. The rates were slightly on the higher side owing to the holidayyum season but still not exorbitant for the amenities offered. Location was perfect and at walking distance from the beach and cliff. The rooms were clean and spacious enough with private washroom and all essential toiletries provided. Air conditioning too was fine as was the television with required channels available. The wifi was a tad slow to be honest especially inside the rooms but manageable. The free buffet breakfast was quite a decent spread and had a mix of South Indian and continental. The food otherwise too was tasty albeit a bit on the higher side as far as prices were concerned. The staff were all extremely friendly and more than willing to help out with a smile, whenever required. Dealing with each and every one of them was pleasant. Overall, an excellent and relaxing stay.

Very nice compact hotel.. near rooms good food.. only suggestions pl provide a proper route map to reach the hotel from say Kollam or Kochi. Google maps takes you to very bad roads along beach if you are self driving

Great otpion for Varkala Beach.
This is a great option for Varkala beach. Super friendly staff and decent, spacious bedrooms. Great breakfast, not the same every day. Fresh fruit juice, healthy stuff. Smooth check-in and check out. Pool hours should really be reviewed, it is too restrictive to tell guests in a destination like Varkala Beach that pool access is not possible after 6pm. Really hoping to go back soon.

A great location at a relatively low cost
We loved staying in Varkala, the Deshadan is a great location, just 5 mins off the main beach and restaurant area. A fabulous beach!! Highly recommend My Place restaurant, Tika Masala and fish in banana leave we’re particularly good! Accommodation great for a relatively low cost hotel with A/C & fan, breakfast included. The only enhancement would have been a in-room safe.

good hotel with great pool
A nice hotel with friendly staff. The breakfast staff were very helpful in particular. The room was good but make sure you get one close to the pool as the ones at the front of the hotel near the road are grotty. A five minute walk to the beach.
