We stayed here out of season so can't vouch for what it's like in peak but when we stayed we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The huts were basic but perfect for what you need and the price and the restaurant and bar was really good. Good choice of food and would recommend the fruit breakfast, the prawn curry, and the falafel...

The waiting staff were lovely, the food was very good. The english manager on the hand is just awful. Of all the months we were living in goa I never came across anyone that was nearly as bad as this guy. He started a full on row with me because I asked if he had charged us extra for condiments,...

Cheap rooms which is great if you don't mind a skanky smell from the kitchen drainage. My friend had a rat fall on her while in the bathroom in the night & you can hear them scratching around during the course of the night. Even though you are staying there you still have to buy food at the restaurant in...

You most certainly get what you pay for with this place, bed sheets that have never been washed, rooms that have never been cleaned, cockroaches on top of the mosquito netting along with a thick layer of grime and dirt! Absolutely disgusting! Walked in and straight back out again. Beach is like a meat market also, girls beware- you will...

Nice beach restaurant with consistently good food & great soul/jazz/reggae tunes. Indian and Tandoori options are excellent. Good value breakfasts. One of the best in Arambol. Easy to find , on the busier stretch of Arambol Beach. Drinks well priced too.

Hi, My wife and me were here during the Diwali weekend of 2016. We were referred Laughing Buddha by a friend who was there a few months prior.
