Only booked here for one night which was a huge mistake as when I arrived after taking in the walk down the beach I realised this was the place for me-sadly after my one night they were full so I had to go elsewhere for two nights but on my return stayed for 2 weeks.
Its in the style of most of the bamboo huts but as its away from the beach you don't get the noise of the howling dogs all night which was my experience in the rest of Palolem.
Not sure what the problem was with the other reviewer about cleanliness-the staff will change the sheets every day if you ask.Communal showers/toilets were spotless,where else can you say that in India?and the en-suite ones were simple toilet/shower but worked fine.
The staff here are lovely and helpful without being in your face and the lady owner Shelly really knows how to cook,the food is home cooked Goan and up there with the best in Palolem.There were a few nights when the bar got a bit lively (c/o Serafin - Shelly's brother and his flavoured firewaters) and a few when it was empty but if you need peace and quiet your space is respected.
Palolem is not the tranquil empty beach it once was but staying here means you can dip in and out of the action as and when you feel like it.The flora and fauna here are plentiful and the monkeys are fun to watch and shy without being scary like they are up north.
Great people and great place to stay.
