Relaxing on top of Varkala beach
very nice top hill hotel. Great service, very friendly. Close walk from the beach. The hotel itslelf has all you need. It could be a 5* if the hotel restaurant would be a bit bigger or the pool would have a bit more chairs or be a bit bigger. Our room had the floor that was broken under a dirty carpet. The carpet was changed, but it gives impression with other details, that hotel is a bit old. The room was big so and especially the bathroom. The restaurant is very good. The Gateway is probably one of the best quality hotel in Varkala, the beach village has a lot of hôtels, but it is a bit a dirty area and I am not sure I would pick a hotel right there. Still possible to find ok places, I am sure, but not a 5*.

Enjoyable stay for 3 nights
This was a nice place to spend three days. The best things about the hotel are the pool which was a great size and was very clean, the free yoga in the morning and the standard of the rooms. Service was good in general, but there were one or two occasions when the staff looked a bit lost. If I had to be picky about the room, the bed was a little high, but otherwise we were very comfy.
