When in Palolem, you can locate Papillon at fag end of the beach. They have coco beach houses which they rent out. Compared to the price that you pay for a room, its really a good deal. These are small huts made mostly of bamboo or cane. Even in a hot day you wont feel the need of an AC since bamboo huts usually stay cool even in hot summer. They have fans though.
The bathrooms are temporary ones with showers and basins and English toilets. You wont get hot water directly in the shower. If you need it, ask for it. They will provide you hot water in a bucket.
The houses lack privacy though. As I said these are bamboo huts and unlike rooms with concrete walls you dont get complete privacy there.
The location is the best. And the food even better. The north indian food is really tasty. We had chicken tikka, parathas, malai tikka, english breakfast, fresh fruit juices and they were really good.
The staff was good. The behavior of the attendants was excellent.
