Lived in a dreamland
Our stay at Taj Varkala was way beyond expectation as if we were in dreamland. Really liked the customer service, SUPERB! We came with 2 little kids. The very best thing was the unbelievable friendliness of the staff very courteous, ever smiling and flawless in every aspect LITERALLY. We stayed here for 3 nights and encountered the most charming helpfulness. On arrival we were dead tired and needed thorough rest.  I am a Taj Silver Epicure member, they immediately got the upgrade to Sea View (one of the best rooms with wonderful views over the garden area, pool, green cliffs & the OCEAN). Breakfast was excellent, pool area & water good & super clean, spa was relaxing, lobby breezy with stunning views. They took extreme care be it the guard who opens the front gate, the front desk and ground staff at the lobby/dinning , the bell boys, or the gentleman at the pool.   Cleaning staff did multiple sessions of cleaning as our kids messed up every corner of room & lobby. Especially for the kids The kitchen staff took all the requests with utmost care (Milk, khichdi, uttapam, apple rice, banana pancakes) , even at the oddest hours of the day.     They really helped us with anything needed at any place (Even at the time of leaving they got the baby food while we were sitting in the car).   Jomilin gave the kids a gift of 2 Remote Cars, we truly appreciated the kind gesture. I would like thank everyone Jomilin, Aswathy, Ratheesh, Sudeep, Nishanth, Veeru, Tony K, Bandi. I have definitely missed a lot of names here especially the waiters & cleaning staff, but I would like to applaud each one of them with three cheers!!  Please extend my wishes to each one of them. Its a delight to be treated with so much warmth & concern. This is what makes a Hotel truly special and such Staff should be appreciated & encouraged.   Taj Varkala team spoiled us to the core !! I am definitely recommending to lots of people, friends & family. I have taken some of the best memorable moments from Kerela. Lots of love from Rajasthan Gaurav B. Anshi B.

Good hotel at the nice place!
I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday staying at this hotel. Extremely delighted to Meet Mr Ridhin at front desk and he is just courteous in taking care of our stay for 2 days. i.e After checking in side the room my wife felt that the Room TV has no access to tamil channels, when reached out to Ridhin he has immediately activated tamil channels for us. The food was excellent and out of world especially to mention meen polichathu and malabar fish curry.
