We were at first a little worried if it is really true that we only pay 200 rupie per person per night for a location directly at the beach and over new years eve in goa. But it was true and I loved hearing the sea at night in our coconut shed and just walking 10 meters to the beach... More

The service was outstanding, very friendly and helpfull, all the staff did theire very best to make us feel welcome and at home. The best relaxing vaccation in years. Thank you guys, we come again!

Me and my girlfriend had a fantastic 3 nights at Castellos Coco Huts and were really gutted that we werent able to stay longer, we had just had 9 nights in Anjuna and wish we had done it the other way around. The huts are in a great location just a 10min walk from town, where there are some dirt... More

If you decide to stay here because of the price its false advertisement! The owner is extremely rude and will charge you more than the web quotes. Very poor location with nothing around, rats in the beach huts, dirty mattresses that were still wet from the last people's sweat in the night. Do yourself a favor and don't book!

After reading some other reviews i see that we were not the only people that had the same problem at Castello's Tourist Nest - the owner is a HORRID man with ZERO manners and he has NO idea how to run his business. We book a "beach hut" and when we arrived he tried to take us to a very... More

Absolutely awful manager, he tried to cheat us out of the room we booked. He has a temper and no people skills whatsoever. VERY disappointing. Rooms are small, dingey and dirty and the toilets are shared with the whole resort and are dirty. Don't waste your money.

After booking two seaside rooms the owner tried to move us to the most dreadful room in the town. He wanted four of us to share one room (after we booked 2) with 2 mattresses on the floor that had come from outside. We refused and said we wanted to stay where we had booked. He took us back and...

Basic beach huts right on the beach. Spotlessly clean with Mosquito nets, washing lines, plenty of water and a table and chair for inside or out. Despite only paying 400 Rupees for the room, we even got a free pick up from the train station at 8pm saving us 200 rupees. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant right... More

We booked this place through Hostel World,it had actually had a really terrible review (which has now been removed,too much swearing in it)but out of desperation and possibly morbid curiousity we booked it. Idiots! We turned up at the beach shacks instead of the guest house,the owner met us and tried to palm us off with one of his tin... More
