The place is awesome, located right on the Palolem Beach. Cottages are wonderful & staff is friendly, Bed has a good mosquito net and the bathroom is clean, Perfect place to relax...The only thing I would point out would be that the rooms could have more windows or openings so they could have more light inside it

Please avoid, these people offer you hut on cheap rates if you bargain but will ask you to vacate the other day of they get a customer who is willing to give higher price. There cottages are satisfactory but there behavior is not at all acceptable

We booked 3 double rooms over new year. They were run down, leaking and dirty. The beds were damp, the electric didn't work but worst of all there was no one around to help. Customer service is non-existent. Also on Tuesdays they have a silent disco right next to the huts until 4am which is just people singing badly &...

Palolem beach has a ton of places to stay. The north is rather busy, but the south end has the best sunsets I have ever seen. Be sure to go to Blue Restaurant which is located on the beach in front of Laughing Buddha. They have the best coffee shakes that do not make you sick. You are also able...

We stayed here for one night and had got the cottages pretty cheap online. Since this cottage is near the beach, we had hard time bringing our luggages to this place as there is no road for vehicles. Anyway, the cottages are very basic and i would say average, also although it was near the beach, it wasn't on the...

We booked our little bungalow at Laughing Buddha via booking.com and it was actually quite expensive, so we were a bit surprised that the bungalow was very basic and not on the beach as you are led to believe from the photos.

We stayed at the Laughing Buddha in Palolem with a group of 8(family) in 3 cottages for 2 nights recently. We had the rooms booked in advance, so everything was in place when we arrived.
