Our first visit to Palolem was made more memorable our stay at Havana. The beach facing huts, great food, good music and above all very friendly people running the place. Overall, a strong recommendation to anyone planning to visit the awe inspiring Palolem beach in south Goa.

A friend of ours booked 4 cottages facing the beach.
2000 rupees per cottage per night
On arrival we found them to offer a excellent vista but they were basic, dirty and with intermittent running water (cold only).
We eventually got the rooms cleaned but it did take time.

The good in the bar was good value and the waiting staff were polite and good at their jobs if not a little overworked. The bar owners would just watch them run ragged rather than pitch in!

A thing to bare in mind is that with the cottages being above the bar you will have to wait for the bar to shut before you get any peace and quiet just the crashing of the high tide against the beach.
So if you want a quieter stay they have cottages behind the bar which I believe are cheaper.

We might consider these if we were to stay here again but our other friends stayed in other cheaper accommodation that they believed better value.

I would offer these words of advice though. If you are planning a trip to Palolem out of peak time. Just turn up and find the best deal on your stay

All in all Havana was ok but they could have done a better job for the money

I ranked it so high only because of the amazing view from the balcony, where you could seat comfortably, drink their amazing coconut cocktail and look on the ocean directly in front of you. Most huts on Palolem don't have that.

Hut is very basic, beautiful from outside, and inside...well..That's my first time in the place in this price segment, so I probably couldn't compare. I was prepared, that it'd be very simple, which it was. Actually, you just sleep inside, nothing more. All my free time in hut was spent on the balcony, and it was nice.

Anyway, I saw a lot of other bungalows, and let me tell you, they are all the same. So amazing location of this one is definitely a plus. Also they have quite a decent beach restaurant, which is a bit pricy comparing to others nearby, but totally worth it.
