I am not usually one to review places, but in this case, I so enjoyed staying at Cuba in Palolem, that I wanted to share my experience.
Located halfway along Palolem beach, of all the chalets I saw along the beach, these were by far the best both in terms of location, cleanliness and facilities.
The chalets are conveniently located by the bar / restaurant area. After trying a few eatieries along the beach, I decided that the food served at Cuba was probably the best, in terms of taste, freshness & choice. (Only a couple of times I dined at Dropadi along the beach, for some variety .. that too is very good).
There was a small issue with overbooking when I arrived, but this was quickly fixed.
Unlike other hotels, housekeeping do not automatically clean the chalets daily unless u specifically hang the "please make up room" sign on the door. Eventhough the music at the bar isn't played too loud, it does go on til the early hours; I would suggest earplugs to ensure a good nights sleep.
The staff are all very friendly, making a point to know you by name and greet you by it when they see you. Speical thanks to Rajesh & Satish who made me feel all the more welcome.
I hope my review conveys how happy I was with staying at the Premium Sea Facing chalets, and if I returned to Palolem in the future, it is the only place I would stay.
