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!!

Regulars will be delighted to know that the Guesthouse remains the ideal location for sociable evenings on the verandah with world class cocktails and excellent company. The only change is super thick mattress toppers which ensure even sounder sleep at the end of a perfect day.Goran and Janet are aiming to persuade the breakfast ladies to give bigger portions of...

My husband and I have just returned from a wondrous cheeky week in Goa and I have been inspired to write only my second Trip Advisor review for the Village Guesthouse, as a massive part of what made our time in Goa so special was staying here. I’d been to Palolem over 10 years ago as a backpacker and fallen... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Village Guest and it did not disappoint us. We stayed for 14 nights and enjoyed it even better than the 1st time. The rooms are comfortable and clean as is the bathroom; breakfast is lovely and a very good location – 5 minutes’ walk to Palolem beach or 1 Minute in a rickshaw... More
