I visited this hotel with family towards the end of October 2016. The best part of this hotel is the location as it is very near to the Papanasam beach. Also, the rooms offer a great view of the beach through the extra-wide windows. The buffet breakfast, in the roof top restaurant overlooking the beach, was also very good with...

Location of the hotel is too good. Very peaceful.... Rooms were good. Food was average in spite of lots of options. Staff were very generous.... Better choice for them who wants to relax.... Heaven place for sea food lovers....

Our stay at Hindustan beach retreat was not planned, it was a matter of no other choice due to heavy rush during Diwali break in November 2016. Our travel agent suggested us to choose this resort as there were no other options in Kovalam at beach side. We had a day visit to Kovalam too and trust we were so...

This is an average hotel and is closest to the Papanasam beach.Frankly,the beach is not worth visiting and we regretted staying at Varkala for 3 nights.The cliff above the beach is a relatively happening place, but the views from this hotel is n't very pleasing. Staying at this place for more than a day is certainly not a great idea.

We were booked in here as part of our tour and were very disappointed with the rudeness of the reception manager who when we requested a room with a balcony said none were available and we had no choice but to accept the room they offered!!! After making numerous calls he turned out he was right as everywhere else was...

Right in front of the beach. Every room has sea view from the balconies. Nice breakfast arrangements at rooftop restaurant. In room facilities and normal restaurant rates are one a higher side, other better options are available all around in varkala. Overall a good stay and always recommended to sea lovers.

We went there in the noon time and ordered for a fish-curry meals. Except two of us no one was their except few staff. The food is average, and certainly not worth...

I had a wonderful stay. All the rooms are facing beach view. Rooms are big and clean. Food was good. Staffs are polite and friendly. Very near to Janarthana Temple. We manage to see the sun set. Just need a little extra maintenance
