I don't usually take the time to review places but in this case I want to warn other travelers. This place sucks and I would not recommend it to anyone.
I stayed here for 4 nights in early December and came in late every night and never once did I see any sign of security guards nor CCTV?! The room was not cleaned once or even offered to be so there was a nice build up of sand in our room when we left.
The owner is completely money hungry... Nice at first when we arrived but then sat outside of his bungalow smoking the entire time we were there and on the last day when we were paying our bill he magically appeared to take the cash without even bidding us a farewell or anything. Just took the cash and walked off! haha I have never experienced such rudeness! The staff in general here are hopeless - they couldn't help me with any of my very simple questions or requests! Having spent a lot of time over the years travelling throughout India in simple accommodation this has been my worst experience to date.
There are plenty of other places in Palolem to stay that actually good service for the same price - I would definitely shop around!
