Following a 5 month stay last year, I went for 6 weeks early this year and as always, Sash & his crew did me proud. These guys know their customers and take care of their business, food is good quality, fairly priced and the staff are ultra friendly - even though they didn't win the cricket world cup....I really recommend...

We noticed these huts on a previous visit to Palolem. They are on the north end of the beach which is now our preferred end. Sadly the south end is getting busier, noisier & attracting a crowd who would normally stay in north Goa ! (Go back) Huts are basic & set in a sandy garden. Some have individual hot... More

Second time to Fernandes and won't be the last! Brought friends this time and they agree. Lovely location, cute huts - basic but all you need is there. Staff attentive and always ready to help or arrange trips. Sitting here watching the sun go down - bliss!!

Stayed here 2 weeks in early Jan. Great host, named Sash was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and cosy. Made fully of wood, had hot water. Staying upstairs may be too loud in the night due to the sea, so better to stay in huts deeper inside the garden.

The room was basic (as are all beachside rooms) but clean, ditto for attached bathroom which had individual boiler for hot water all day. We stayed in the raised rooms facing the beach which gave beautiful views out to sea, particularly at sunset. Staff are helpful (boat trip can be arranged and is recommended) and the restaurant is good too.

Such a cosy, welcoming family run place, with lovely huts right on the beach. We have been to Fernandes since I was very little, and it has never disappointed us! I highly recommend their huts, which are reasonably priced and Rocky's even willing to bargain! I really can't sing enough praise for Fernandes, it has everything, great huts, right on... More

It was our third trip to Palolem but the first time we staid at Fernandes Wooden Cottages. It's really a terrific place and you feel at home immediately! In my opinion it is good value and the staff is extremely helpful and nice. The food is also great so really there is nothing not to like!
