Reviewed February 8, 2013

If you want to stay in a beach hut i palolem - stay at Papillon. In my account the best place for easy living. You get friendly and personal waiters - thanks Raj - and the owner Heaven steps in during busy hours. We stayed for a week, and got the best service.
Papillon has ok huts, clean and tidy. No hot water. Ours was a deluxe hut with fantastic view of the beach and ocean. But its not really because of the huts you stay there. During the day and afternoon there is a wonderful relaxed and peaceful vibe that I enjoyed very much. The difference between this place and other is the atmosphere.

Room Tip: Seaview is always nice

we (me and my wife) stayed at papilon during last week of january for 4 days, i have made no of rounds of the beach, and i can gladly post.... papilon is best..........its about location location and location, with the hanging varandah in beach front rooms, its worth every penny.
food- excellent and price reasonalble.
special event: - live karoke music evening once a week.
we did experiment with other places but found papilons food to be best, but yes pure goan dishes may be tried else where.
travernaki is a greek restaurant, tried slovsnaski ..there......but acording to me , when in india, should try the kebabs instead, (when in rome be like a roman, when in india try indians!) but added advantage is they organise a show with fire.....live in the evening, we were witness to it, it was gr8!.

and yes last note: papilon makes excellent cotcktails, must try them.

staff at papilon: excellent........ i must mention here Amit from Himachal Pradesh, he is a gem, very well mannered and friendly, thank you Amit for making our holiday so special.

only cons: please check the bill, every items that you eat, i guess they acidentally added coffee to my account, but when i brought this to their notice, they gladly removed it.......settled amicable, just a minor issue.

Heaven: very friendly ahd helpful.

thanks and regards

Room Tip: D3, the most beach front room in whole of palolem, we stayed there.

We initially planned to stay a couple of nights in the huts at Papillon and so tried the food as this was on our doorstep. The service was excellent and we noticed they didn't bother with the hard sell to passers by, this was refreshing as every other business nearby hassled you on every occasion you walked by. Food was beautiful and probably the most reasonably priced on the beach. The reviewer 143lesleym has got it completely wrong... yes cheaper Indian food is available nearby but it is not on the beach and food on offer is not comparable. We stayed for 18 nights and ate at the restaurant every breakfast, most lunchtimes and about half of our evening meals. The huts were really good value when compared to alternatives, decent showers, good thick mattresses, reasonable size. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The owner Heaven recommended a massage at Papillon for my sore back, I tried one reluctantly as i'm a bit of a sceptic - it was brilliant and at 400 rupees (less than £5) cheaper than most others on offer. Would definitely recommend Papillon!

5 days with great service, nice view, a clean hut, swimming and relaxing at the Beach. You get the best quality and a lovely atmosphere for a small price. The staff was always around and very friendly. I had the feeling, that they really cared about the customers issues, especially if you are travelling alone. If I would go to Goa again, I definetely would go to Papillon.

Room Tip: Rooms with balkony and beach view are not that much more expensive. Good for small Familie, too!

I stayed at Papillon for 2 weeks in Dec/Jan and had an amazing time.
The food is very good at a great price and the location couldn't be better.
The service was perfect! Every single person who made up the staff was so friendly, attentive, and efficient thanks to the organization of the very kind owners.
Papillon is very safe and there is all the time someone looking over the huts. Rooms are clean and big enough with the wardrobe and proper bathroom. Having a drink on your lovely balcony and hear the sound of waves can't be more relaxing…

Room Tip: The Lux Huts are the best with an amazing see view
