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

Excellent guest house with great hosts in Palolem. This was the third time we have been to Palolem and this is without a doubt the friendliest and nicest place we stayed. It is within walking distance to the beach. We hired mopeds which was great fun for exploring, Janet and Gouran organized the bikes for us. Janet and Gouran are... More

From the welcome to the goodbye, all was excellent. This was our first visit to Palolem and the Village guesthouse it certainly will not be our last. Janet and Gouran were both helpful and treated us all as friends rather than guests. Top marks!! One warning, be careful how many cocktails you consume!!
