“Very funky beach huts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2010

We stayed for 5 days at Cozy Nook on Palolem beach. There is no actual road to Cozy Nook, so you need to walk up the beach to get to it - only about a 5 -10 minute walk so not too bad, but don't take anything too heavy and rolling your suticase in the sand is a little difficult! It's the last place at the end of the beach - but it is worth the walk.

We stayed in one of the cottages - we loved it. Bed was comfortable and the huts were decorated with funky Indian furniture. The bed was massive and came with a mosquito net. Upstairs there was a chill out room with a little bed that you could relax on too. The bathroom area was also clean albiet only a cold water shower and bucket to wash yourself with. For c.2500 ruppee a night, i would have thought you would have got a little more for your money, but it was really fun going back to basics for a while. I've gone round the world backpacking a few times now and stayed in similar type accomodation for a fraction of the price, so I'd maybe look around at the different beach huts - there are thousands - before committing to Cozy Nook.

The restaurant at cozy nook is great, my favourite part of Cozy Nook - banana and chocolate pancakes were AMAZING. The service was pretty slow, but once it arrived the food was always really yummy and it was just brilliant being able to have breakfast with you feet in the sand and lying on a bean bag. The restaurant also has wi fi - which is great if you want to get connected to book flights/find your next destination.

Everyone was very chilled out and the atmosphere was great. Palolem is really special. The beach is amazing, with lots of great food and it has a really cool vibe.

As someone that has visited Palolem on a number of occasions and stayed in a variety of the beach hut / resorts that are on the sea front, I can honestly say Cozy is the best deal on the strip. Tucked away in a corner of the beach, next to the lush forest and obviously right on the sea front. Fantastic staff, great kitchen, which is very precious as stomach upsets are common.

Palolem beach itself is a beautiful stretch of idilic sand, with nothing but one story beach huts, bars and resaurants. Incredible seafood all caught fresh that day.

A lovely range of huts, from concrete AC ones to stunning two floor thatched. You really feel like you're in paradise. I considered not reviewing so well as I want to keep this place a secret, but in all honesty I cannot imagine going anywhere else. Get a flight to Goa, head to Palolem and rock up to the Cozy. You won't regret it.

This business has the advantage of appearing in 'The Lonely Planet' which means it doesn struggle to fill rooms - as a result the accomodation is extremely over priced compared to other similar places in Palolem. The service is pretty rude also - they wouldn't even bring our food to our table - they just dumped it on the bar and whistled at us!!! Very weird.....we moved next door to 'Dreamcatcher' 2.5 times cheaper and much better service!!

I stayed here for 5 days - moved rooms a bit - room 1, 2 and 7 (preferred 7 as room was better laid out adn furnished).

I lthe laid back atmposphere and that no eyebrows were raised about two guys sharing a bed.

The food here was quite nice an particularly enjoyed yoga with Ruben each morning - and the massages from Lazo - both great value.

We slept badly due to noise - howling dogs and crows although this is a feature for all places here and it is probably quieter here than elsewhere due to it being fairly secluded at this end of the beach.
Staff were also very honest in telling us that prices had dropped as the season at that point was quieter for all establishments.

Palolem beach as a whole need to collectively get together and address the issue of stray dogs which create such a noise - as well as some of the beach litter.

However, I would certainly go back to Palolem and Cozy Nook in particular. The bar area also was great and enjoyed whiling away a few hours drinking cocktails and reading as well as making use of the Wifi.
