I stayed for 3 weeks and can thoroughly recommend it!
With the reservation below, I found the staff helpful and efficient, the wifi currently only works close to reception, but there are a number of cafés nearby who have. Free wifi.
My room was one of the smaller ones, but as a single traveller that was perfect. It's was cleaned and new towels were provided whenever I asked. It is one of the more expensive places in Palolem, but in my opinion well worth it.
I understand why everyone comments on the receptionist; but she always arranged/organised things when requested, but I accept she's not always smiley. I think the one star review was a bit harsh.

We came to Palolem Guest House looking for a room. The lady in charge was the most unwelcoming person we've met during our 6 weeks in India (the price of the room was not the same than the one given us over the phone). A well-known guide book already mentions it and it s all true: reception badly needs some friendliness training. We didn't stay there (while we were leaving we told her that we just wasted our time coming to her hotel and she had the nerve to tell us that we had come with "bad intentions" ??!!!) and we were glad we left, You'll find same price rooms (around 1750 double room without AC) or cheaper rooms close to the boutiques&beach with smiling and welcoming employees. And that's priceless.

Very nice and proper guesthouse. Kindly and serviceminded staff. Clean and nice rooms. Good restaurant in nice garden with very good cooking. We have been there three times now and always feel welcome and comfortable there. Much better than beach huts. Just a nice 5 minutes walk to the beach:-) We strongly recommend this place

We stayed here in 2007 for around three nights. It is nicely located, Far enough from the mayhem at the beach but still just a small walk way. The locality is very peaceful and you can see everyday goan people carrying on with their lives. The garden restaurant inside serves good simple dishes. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The laundry service is good.

Consider staying here if you don't feel like staying in one of the beach shacks.

Room Tip: Choose rooms in the new building. The ones with a balcony are best.

We got this place recommended from another Swedish couple. We stayed three nights.

It had a good location about 10 min walk from the beach and 15 min from the main drag. Rooms where ok considered the low price we paid, had AC but alas no WiFi. Staff were friendly throughout and we booked in advance without deposits or trouble. The restaurant on-site is nice and the head waiter extremely friendly.

Palolem is paradise with a world class beach, several nice eateries and good souvernir shopping

We booked online & paid a deposit via moneygram at the post office.
Had plenty of contact with the guesthouse via emails.
We stayed for 2 nights from 20th December 2012.
My OH & I were in the old building. Our friends were in one of the new rooms by reception.
We loved our room it was like an old fashioned Portuguese apartment. Great wetroom with resident froggie. Lovely comfortable bed & a good balcony looking out onto the restaurant. Great quiet room with no mosquitoes.
Our friend's room was super duper trendy, but noisy (as it was next to reception)& full of mozzies.
The location is great, just a 5 minute walk to the beach (which takes you passed the scrummy German Bakery).
The girls on reception were so friendly, I don't understand people's complaints about them. Maybe it's a case of treating people as you would like to be treated.
We had brekkie at the guesthouse - it was perfect. Plenty of choice.
Unfortunately we didn't have an evening meal there as we spent most of our time at the beach.
We've stayed in beach huts on previous visits to Palolem.........no hot water available at these....never again. In future it always has to be this guesthouse.

We stayed for two nites and absolutely loved this place. Our room was ultra modern, I was shocked when I saw how nice it was. They had the most comfortable bed I have slept in in India. The staff were very very friendly and the breakfast was amazing too.
