    Everything. Don't look elsewhere go for it

    Booked.net does not communicate the child to the hotel hence there were confusion over whet her the child charge is inclusive or not. Mr. Shyam from the hotel however resolved this for me. Feel Booked.net can be more clear with the terms

    What an unexpected pleasure to happen onto this great place! The pool is fantastic, as are the staff, beds, breakfasts, views, rooms----everything. I can't think of a thing I would change! We loved having a front-row seat to observe the beautiful Hindu rituals.

    Nice clean pool - good staff - food good. Upgrade room was clean and tidy with plenty of space.

    Hotel in areas a little tired, could do with updating.

    The staff were very attentive and helped organise our onward transport. The Indian breakfast was great, we'd definitely recommend the dishes made to order. Very clean pool which is refreshing after being in the sea. Close to good beach shacks and not far from North Cliff. Close to the exceptional South Cliff beach. Very comfy room. Very clean and spacious. Recommend for families, couples and older travellers. Definitely recommend going to the south cliff beach. It's very clean, not crowded and beautiful. The hotel provides beach towels!

    The Hindustan is the absolute best place to stay to enjoy Papanashum Beach. Every room looks out at the ocean and at the sand altars where priests help Hindus make offerings for passed loved ones. Being right on the beach, instead of up on the cliff, was great. Wonderful staff; great breakfasts; comfortable vibe; fantastic pool. We will definitely return to the Hindustani Beach Retreat!

    No complaints at all. We loved it and kept extending our stay!!

    Superb

    Breakfast was good and the rooms were large and very comfortable overlooking the beach. The security man on the front door was very pleasant and so was the man at the pool.

    Staff in the restaurant for breakfast were not overly friendly to say the least! We also didn't realise that tax hadn't been added to the cost of out stay until check out which was very misleading.

    -service was very slow

    Fabulous

    1. The staff is friendly and helpful; somewhat better at the reception than the restaurant wait staff 2 lovely ocean views form the rooms, nice decor and interiors 3 right on papanasam beach, one of the few Varkala hotels not located on a high cliff 4 nice little pool

    1 the beach access is crowded with busloads of people arriving for some religious ceremonies, sundays mean loud music and and even bigger crowds 2 a huge flood light on the beach shines right into the rooms 3 some areas such as the rooftop restaurant need a bit of TLC 4 the breakfast though good could do with a few more non-veg additions
