This is bed & breakfast type hotel, located in main market opposite to Sun n Moon Travel agency near to Palolem beach, 5 min walking distance to beach. I booked through Red Bus website and got good rates for AC double room.
Very good location, near to beach, 300m from beach, 5 min walk. You can go on beach anytime, you can go early morning to see sun rise, also can stay and relax on beach till late night.
I stayed here for 2 nights in AC deluxe room. Room was very small with very little space to move around. Toilet was clean as well the bed sheets and mosquito net. Rooms flooring was clean however rooms wall look dusty. AC was good. Rooms are value for money. They have running cold/hot water. Free Wi-fi is also there but a bit slow at times.
They don't provide food but many restaurants are there within walking distance from this cottage.
Owner was helpful. The cottages are safe also. Overall recommended to stay for families, couples and solo budget travellers.
1. Distance close to beach, approx 300 m from beach, 5 min walking distance. you can go to beach to have a walk any time early in the morning or in the night.
2. Wi-Fi network is rally good, though it was troubled some time during day. I watched couple of You Tube videos without buffering.
3. AC was powerful.
1. No Power Backup.
2. Rooms are small with basic amenities. They do not provide bath soap.
Room wasn't exactly nice but it was fine and clean. Shower had hot water - bonus for India!
However it's a 5 min walk from beach. You can get cheaper accommodation on the actual beach than this! We paid 750 a night here.
Electricity went off every day, at least twice... For at least an hour at a time- a bit annoying!
Pritam's Cottages offer a perfect blend of value for money and comfort - for what we paid, we were surprised at both the quality of the rooms and the service.
The owner and his son (after whom the hotel is named) were very sweet and helpful and Tushar, who helps around the place, was always on hand to attend to anything we wanted.
Being in the lane meant that while it was close to the action of the market, it was far enough from its hustle and bustle.
And i was surprised to find they offered free wi-fi!
I usually stay at the beach at Palolem, but I'd definitely stay here again.
Me and my Girlfriend stayed here for 5 nights in February 2015 and really loved our accommodation. The owner was incredibly helpful and arranged moped hire for us, he even let us leave our baggage with them on day of checkout as our train wasn't until the evening, he even arranged the taxi for us to the station!
It's tucked out of the way in a quiet area, just a 5 minute walk down to the beach and very close to all surrounding restaurants (go to magic Italy for the best pizzas in India!)
