Very helpful staff. Good food at their restaurant.

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.

A lot of bang for the buck
Great value for money, best we've stayed in so far in India. Nice pool, fantastic staff, good food in the restaurant. A little jaded but aren't we all? Wifi good when it worked but was a little temperamental. All in all a great stay, would highly recommend
