We were 4 friends travelling across India and had originally booked 3 nights at Papillon. Air India re-scheduled one of our internal flights resulting in us arriving in Goa at day later than expected. We contacted Papillon and received a response that they would re-arrange our airport transfer (which they did) and asking when we would be checking out. We... More

Stayed here for 1 night to get a feel of Palolem, beach huts here are plentiful but the quality of the accommodation is sketchy, we had a beach front hut above a shop which was not the best we stayed in, location good but overpriced with what we had to compare these huts with. We did try a cocktail each... More

When in Palolem, you can locate Papillon at fag end of the beach. They have coco beach houses which they rent out. Compared to the price that you pay for a room, its really a good deal. These are small huts made mostly of bamboo or cane. Even in a hot day you wont feel the need of an AC... More

We had stayed at papillon last year for 4 nights. It is located at the south end of palolem beach. Food was excellent here. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Hot water available, which is counted as a luxury here! Will visit again!

My wife and I booked to stay here for three nights in a beachfront hut.We have stayed here before and never had any problems. We arrived and were shown a hut that we had actually stayed in before. We then started to unpack our things and we plugged in our mosquito repellent into the mains socket. We then went for... More

Have been coming here now for several years & for the last 3 years each year on it is improved. Nicer huts. Shelves in bathroom. No matter what you want Heaven & Staff make it possible. I think those with negative reviews are simply not used to simple beach hut life. If you want 5 star book into inter Continental... More

We trawled trip advisor trying to decide on which beach hut to stay in Goa. We finally settled on Papillion as we deemed it the best of what had availability. The location of the huts is amazing and the restaurant is very good. You can fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves, throw on a bathing... More

The reviews seemed very good and we disregarded the few that stated the bad service and rudeness, thinking it was purely subjective, and gave them a shot. Sure the location is nice but the owner seemed incredibly rude, lazy and even sneaky at times (even with his staff) and the overall ambience was very unpleasant. There are so many other... More

I have just returned from my third annual visit to Goa where I stayed for 3 weeks at Papillon over Christmas and New Year. This was my third stay at Papillon, after the first day Papillon begins to feel like home. Heavens staff - especially Dev and Rajah really do go way out of their way to make sure you... More
