“Great Place to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

It's one of the best places to stay at Palolem. I had booked for 2 nights and Ellie was helpful to make sure that the reservation was done in a flash. got a room next to the kitchen but it was good as i had thought staying next to kitchen will be bad.

all the Boys at the place are so helpful that it reminded me that i am staying at home and not at an hotel. the warm reception and the smile on their face is so damn nice that it keeps you happy at all times.

Room was good with Mosquito net with clean linen. Bathroom was good but needs some make over. Food was amazing. But the price is bit on the higher side.

End of the day, the best 2 days at palolem was at the Nest. thanks ellie and Staff.

Me and my partner stayed at the nest in march and had to spend the first night in a basic hut behind the kitchen for 400 rupees because the other huts were full. We werent too bothered seeing as we were living on the beach but you do get what you pay for. For the next two nights we stayed in one of the more expensive, larger and cleaner huts that have hot water. It was an extremely pleasant experience and what made it better was the way we were looked after by the staff. My partner got a bit sick (dont go to the restaurant on the very south end of the beach with the ramp going up to it) and we felt like we had our parents there looking after us. Lovely place, lovely people and lovely to fall asleep to the waves and wake up to them on your doorstep :)

The Nest is situated right in the middle of the beautiful Palolem beach. From there you can easily walk to both the side of the beach (I would say that it's 1.5 km long) and access the main road if you want to do day-trip to other nearby beaches (I highly recommend it, rent a bike and go!). The staff is friendly and at the bar there is music all day long. Maybe it's not the best place to go with kids, since the nights are quite noisy. But we were there in high season (Christmas and New Year), so we got the less expensive bungalow, no sea view, no hot water and near the kitchens and bar. It didn't bother us, but maybe if you're travelling with kids or with a higher budget, you'd better choose a room with more comforts and farther from the bar.

Room Tip: We were there in high season (Christmas and New Year), so we got the less expensive bungalow, no sea...

Comfortable place on sea front overlooking long stretch of beach. Service was prompt, there was a large menu including more European food than on most menus. Food was good and plentiful, nice atmosphere.

I stayed at the nest with two mates and we couldn't have asked for more. Mohan and his team offer the best service you could ask for, incredibly chilled out but very attentive and helpful. The huts are very comfortable even with 3 big guys staying in it. Best huts in Palolem without doubt!

The best place to stay in Palolem with clean huts and it has all the basic amenities. The owner Mohan and the staff is very friendly and helping in every case. The location of the huts is right on the beach with a serene view and the cool breeze will elevate your mood. It is accesible from road from the rear side, also it is located near to most of the happening places of palolem e.g neptune point. Best huts on palolem beach at very competitive and budget friendly prices.

This place is situated almost at the South end of the Palolem beach which in fact is the most happening beach in South Goa. A party is held every wednesday in the Nest - for those who love to party it is great, for those who seek for peace and tranquillity this may be a slight irritant. Neverthless the party is definitely good. Apart from this minor hiccup, Nest is peaceful, food is ultra awesome. One should must try Golden Fried Prawns/Calamari there. One of the best definitely. Sevice is very good, they will serve food to your room if you wish to stay away from hustle & bustle and spend the evening in your room verandah. Room is basic, one wardrobe, a double bed with mosquito net. The gyser was a bit tricky, one should be careful. One complain is that there were red ants all around the bathroom during the night time. But that doesn't affects your holiday in any way right? Swinging on the hammock with a chilled beer amidst coconut trees and listening to the chirping of birds felt like heaven each and every day. Would to love to come back.
