- There was no door or at least curtain in the toilet, a bit inconvenient if you live with someone else in the same room. - Power cuts. - Hot water doesn't last long. - Poor wi-fi in rooms, need to go to the hall or sit next to the door in a room. + Friendly managers, ready to assist...

We stayed here for 2+ weeks and had excellent service the whole time. We had originally booked for one of the smaller rooms downstairs which was beautifully decorated, but as we were an extended visit, we upgraded to one of the larger rooms upstairs. The guest house has been open for a few years, but has now been taken over...

We had one of the smaller rooms in the new building, but it was plenty big enough and with more storage than elsewhere we stayed, so that we could get our things organised, which was a welcome bonus after living out of bags for several weeks. We also had a small balcony, which was a lovely place to sit in...

Well I'm glad to say myself and my partner both loved our stay here. Not much has changed except a new building with some new rooms. The local family who run and now manage this guest house are lovely. The atmosphere is chilled, the rooms are a good size and bathrooms just huge! Breakfast is simple but perfect for the...

Location - fantastic! It is within walking distance to the beach and several eating places. It is super convenient. There are several shops also nearby. Room - Basic with just the right hint of warmth. The sheets were pretty clean. The mattress was comfortable. The only thing lacking was a place to park your suitcase and to dry your clothes....

My daughter and I stayed for a couple of nights during our travels around India in January and had an absolute blast at The Village Guesthouse. The owners Janet and Goran are just fantastic - massive fun and very kind and attentive. Our room / bathroom was lovely and the guesthouse is just a short, five minute walk to all...

Well there is Goran, Janet, (big boss) and Yogi. Plus the lovely cleaning staff of course. If you like socialising with alcohol Yogi's cocktails are great. Add Janet and Goran into the mix with the variety of friends and former guests that pop in you are in for some fun. Goran's humour is unique and an acquired taste 😀. Honest...

I arrived at the Guest House in Goa as a solo female traveller. I loved this place & really didn't want to leave but they were fully booked & had no choice. It is ideally situated, close to all amenities & the beach. The accommodation is quiet, relaxed & v clean & the hosts could not have been more welcoming...

I can’t recommend this place enough. The rooms are large and spacious – especially the showers – and very clean. The owners, Janet and Goran, are the friendliest and most helpful people I’ve met – they really go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. He even gets up at 5am every morning to make fresh bread for...

I stayed here in March for 5 nights after a 11 day your for Holi, which was full on and lots of moving around and early morning starts was looking for some R&R. My friend that I was with Vicki had stayed a couple of years before and whilst I was adamant that I wanted to stay on the beach...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aimed at the more discerning traveller and holidaymaker, this property is for those who don’t want a bamboo and plywood beach hut or the anonymous luxury of a five star hotel. Guests from all over the world tend to meet in the many communal spaces. The large veranda upstairs is a favourite, where guests can have a cocktail and share stories in the early evening before sampling the many attractions of Palolem and its environs. ... more   less
