Stayed in one of the delux cottage here for 4 nights, it was s trial visit as my wife and i are planning to visit Kerala for longer periods. I must say the cottages are very clean,location just amazing, 50 meters from the sea, all you can hear is the sound of the waves. The hosts including the owners, Tayub Bahai, Anas were absolutely great. Nothing was too much trouble.
Although, we have stayed in a few 4 and 5 star hotels in Kerala in the last 5 years, we have decided to spend 4 weeks at maadathil cottages early next year
Thank you Anas, Tayub Bahai and Muhajir

I went to Varkala and I stay at maadathilcottages. It was very pleasant stay. Comfortable room with sea facing courtyard. And the most important thing was family. All family member are very nice humble and always ready to help you. And Mr. Thayoob is a very gentle person. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality.

Great, secluded location with great views - the fishing boats coming in to unload their catch are charming. The food was excellent and the staff were really helpful - our flight was delayed so we arrived in the middle of the night and they let us sleep in and have breakfast late. We wished we'd been able to stay longer here.

Stayed here 2 weeks ago and had the best stay at Maadathil. The setting was beautiful. Little cottages surrounded by palm trees, greenery. Stones throw from the beach. The setting is removed from any busy roads and all you can hear is the sound of waves crashing on the beach just out front. 30 minute walk from varkala north cliff which was great for having the option to stay at the cottages in the peace and quiet or wander to varkala if you feel like it. Anas will send for a tuk tuk to take you to the cliff if you prefer to not walk. There were hammocks, sun beds on the resort grounds to relax on. The staff were incredibly hospitable and helpful. Going out of their way to help you with anything you need - way outside of their job role! This was especially the case for Anas, the manager who was so friendly, always making sure that we had anything we need and even sent someone to get me some tape when my luggage had ripped open! Anas and the staff were really nice and really made us feel welcome. I could've stayed there to live!

Food was delicious. Breakfast was continental, with a varied options to choose from on the menu. Big selection of all fresh juice every morning. Dinner options were varied also and reasonably priced. Indian food very tasty!

Can't recommend this place enough!
