This was the worst hotel I've ever been to. Where do I start? First of all, the manager demanded we paid upon arrival; when we asked to see the rooms and leave our luggage first, he refused, saying that even though we hadn't liked the rooms, we still would be charged for them. That was only the start. We were given two filthy and badly built cabins, none of which had hot water. One of the two cabins' bathrooms didn't even have a roof (which was extremely unsanitary, considering the sheer amount of birds in area - see picture attached). There were also weird peep holes on the 'walls' of the bathroom (see pictures). Furthermore, the door between the open air bathroom and the room was broken, so at night the temperature dropped significantly in the room and left us freezing, so

I didn't stay here but ate here a few times and I fully recommend it! The food is beautiful! The staff are very friendly and helpful as well, and the location is perfect. Beautiful for an evening meal on the beach. On a slight side note though (not sure if it's connected to the accommodation), I wouldn't use the massage place just in the back next to the beach bungalows. I went for a back, neck and shoulder massage and a head and neck massage. It advertises women will get a woman masseuse but i didnt, and the man took me in and just stood there waiting for me to undress, watching me. I didn't feel comfortable so had to ask for a woman and then had to wait a while for her to come. Then the head massage was done by the man and he took me back outside to sit outside on a chair

We have had the most awesome week here at Papillon! We’re already working out when we can return to this Gem of a place! We were met by the owner on arrival who promptly took our cases to our room. He then introduced us to the Papillon Team. Without this team, our stay wouldn’t have been half as good. They worked tirelessly round the clock to ensure we had everything we needed or wished for. The room was good and all we needed for a comfortable stay. It was cleaned everyday and when ourAC broke, it was fixed immediately. The food is also good too so this place ticked all our boxes. The cocktails need a special mention though as they were delicious especially the strawberry daiquiri! However we like to try different establishments when we’re away and the huts are only a short

We had a very nice time at Papillon where we stayed for around a week. its located at the quite south end of the beach which is great place to settle at palolem. they offer simple huts like most places but with everything you need and its good value, especially the ones with direct sea view. the restaurant is a very nice place to relax at daytime as well. The friendly manager aaqib makes sure you get everything you need. We would come again.

I booked deluxe beachfront hut at Papillon in Palolem Beach. I made the booking directly emailing the owner and bank transfer. When we arrived the room was available and check-in was no formality. The location is awesome, certainly one of the best in Goa. However the huts are average. One of the major problem was that there was no hot water and shower was not working. On complaining the shower was fixed to some extent but still no hot water. I understand they have a solar heater but no luck with hot water even when the sun is shining bright. The staff also did not bother to fix the hot water problem even after complaining multiple times. The housekeeping staff was very rude and unprofessional. They refused to change the bed linen even when asked to do after two days. Their

You have plenty of options on palolem, please do not waste your money on Papillon. “Heaven” the owner of resto is the most unprofessional guy i hv evr come across. Lousy n rude staff. Pathetic service, pathetic rooms. They are polite only to foreigners not INDIANS. Horrible experience.

Our family (2 adults, 2 kids) rented 2 beach front huts over the Christmas period. The staff could not have done anything to make us feel more welcome. They were lovely, attentive and lots of fun. Dushan in particular deserves a mention - he was fab! Heaven was great in sorting out taxis and trips for us and making recommendations. The huts are basic but have all that you need. The view and the sound of the waves at night made you feel like you were in paradise. The food at Papillon is some of the best on the whole beach and their cocktails were pretty good too! :) We will definitely be back...

My cousin and I found this place walking around on the beach. The place looked really attractive, with a comfy relaxing place in the restaurant area. We booked a room for 5 days and very much enjoyed our stay in one of the sea view huts. Staff were very friendly and they serve delicious food and breakfasts and (important!) real good coffee.

Perfect mid range budget beach huts for enjoying a stay in the stunning setting of palolem. Staff all very welcoming and helpful which is all you can ask of somewhere and although it shouldn’t matter but everyone speaking good English is a massive plus if travelling on your own. Good food at prices you can’t argue with. Would recommend the deluxe beach front huts as you literally walk from bed to the sea in seconds. Phil England
