Although there is undoubtedly cheaper accommodation available in Palolem, a stay at The Village Guesthouse buys you a little luxury and pampering. The rooms are beautiful, spacious with good European standard bathrooms, beds, aircon and electrics. A lot of thought has gone into the unique design and flavour of each room. Janet and Goran are dedicated hosts, who spend much... More

I can only echo the other glowing reviews. We loved it here & really hope to return one day. Though Christmas & New Year are party time in Palolem, the Village Guest House remained a haven where we could relax or chat with our hosts & other guests. We enjoyed Yogi's homemade cocktails on the balcony in the evenings, before... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Village for 4 nights together with our friends. The house is nice and it's quite close to the beach - about 300 m. The owners - Janet and Goran - were friendly and helpful AND they speak perfectly English (native) which makes everything easier. Breakfast is served in the garden under the palms.... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said by all the positive reviews already? I've stayed at The Guesthouse for the last two years and absolutely loved it and I'm gutted I'm not going this year. Staying at The Guesthouse made my holiday. The staff are all very helpful and polite. Yes Yogi makes the best cocktails in the... More

We had a brilliant (but unfortunately all too short) stay at the Village Guesthouse in April. This was our first visit to India and we had a wonderful 5 days in Palolem before heading to Chandigarh to attend a wedding. Janet and Goran are excellent hosts and should be proud of their amazing house which has been lovingly restored to... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. Rooms are spacious with A/C, fan and all other amenities. Great breakfast served at a lovely garden. And to top it all, owners are very friendly and will go the extra mile to help with anything needed!!! Best place to stay in India!

Just got back from our stay in palolem at the village guesthouse. Decent sized rooms and huge bathrooms, friendly helpful staff, particularly the owners Goran and Janet who regularly went out of their way to help us. Would recommend for all as a haven close to the beach with ac and wifi!

I stayed at The Village Guest House on the recommendation of a friend. Her view that it was a neatly kept establishment, with simple, stylish rooms in a beautiful and quiet part of Palolem was spot on. The rooms are lovely with ample space. The larger of the two options has a huge walk in showers and doesn't cost much... More

We have stayed at the Village Guest House for the last 3 years, and have only gone back to Palolem when there has been vacancies at the guesthouse. The rooms are great, the hosts are welcoming and treat you as one of their friends. Goren and Janet are great fun and look after their guests. They will go out of... More
