Its the best hotel at the beach. Rooms are spacious, meal specially breakfast is very tasty. Bang for bucks. The staff might need further training and some minor maintenance could to done to make it a five star rating, however their spa provides authentic massage at 1200rs per hour(a bargain for me)...The beach has high tide since at least last...

Go for executive or deluxe rooms. Staff is very polite and helpful. They give more efforts behind maintenance, good breakfast variety and good tasty / quality food. Hotel is located at Papanasam beach, beach is also very clean and lots of options to dine out at beach side near hotel. Nicely maintained swimming pool.

Spacious rooms. Tasty North indian food. A big plus point for the location. It is situated on the varkala beach. Only reason to give 4 starts is that they started there breakfast late. Scheduled time was 7:30 AM but it started after 8:15 AM. We were supposed to leave for Kanayakumari and we got late because of there delay in...

The hotel/lodging house is no where near "As shown on TV". The internet pics are highly misleading. The next door eateries are worth visiting. They have half cut mineral water containers as mugs in the bathroom. Even the ashtrays were not emptied. .....not recommended.

Hotel has very good view if you are interrested in waching the sea. The rooms in the ground floor the once starting from 101 to 106 are very bad. But i felt the rooms in the other floors where better. The 4th floor rooms are really nice. They will tell you that you are being upgraded to executive and will...

I visited Hindustan Beach Resort with a family group of 4 adults and three kids. The hotel is located very close to the beautiful beach. Ours were sea facing rooms. So when you remove the curtain the view is delightful. The entrance displays a small but filled library, for a reader like me, it's a treat. Because of its closeness...

The Hotel is right on the beach and you can see the sea from room. That is the only positive. We didn't like the room nor the décor. The photograph seems so good but it has been taken from an angle which doesn't show the negatives. Stay if you wish to be on the beach every morning and evening. The...
