Cheap shack on the beach

Posted 26 Dec, 2015

Small temporary cottages right on the beach. Camp San Francisco is a popular beach shack, good food, good drinks and the calm waters of Palolem bustling with water sports. The owner is super helpful. However, to reiterate, the rooms are just a small temporary construction on the beach - like a soldiers' barracks. More ideal for college groups than couples or families.

Great location but average facilities

Posted 24 Dec, 2015

While Palolem is awesome, this hotel is terrible. It is a set of wooden rooms built in a fly-by-night fashion to be rented out to beach revellers. Everything has a temporary look to it - as if it has been built to be able to easily dismantle in hours. Rooms are the size of a matchbox, ceiling sometimes leak, bathrooms are cramped and horrible. One commode, one tap and a bucket. Palolem is amazing though. Calm waters, great beach activities from morning to late into the night, cheap food and drink, live barbeques, host of water sports, you name it. However, if you are looking only for the cheapest place this might turn out to be one of the better ones in that category, mind you.

Excellent stay with on Beach Rooms

Posted 10 Jun, 2015

Camp San Fransisco stay is the most memorable one. The Rooms are right on the beach made of wood. The hotel is closed during monsoons but the non sea view rooms are available. The beds are king size with clean sheets and spacious room The owner Mr. Joseph is a very humble man with good hospitality towards his guests. Palolem is located in extreme south of Goa so you would find peace and virgin beach with less Indian crowd messing around. The evenings set with Candle light dinner by the hotel for all the guests. Food is delicious. A must stay hotel if visiting south Goa.

Nice! Budget hotel.

Posted 2 Jun, 2014

I stayed there for three nights and four days. Rooms were neat, clean, and spacious. Rooms had all basic amenities as TV, hot water, geyser, etc. Rooms were fully furnished and well managed. There was a nice scenic view available from the hotel rooms. Food quality was not good. Hotel staff was excellent. The location of hotel is appropriate. Appearance wise hotel is well maintained. I made advance booking and it was quite convenient. There was no problem with booking service. Goa as a tourist place is nice. According to budget, hotel is recommendable for other travelers.

Awesome! Highly recommended. Rooms were very nice and spacious. People were very nice and courteous. Very close to the Candolim beach. They didnt have a restaurant which was the only drawback but had a fully loaded fridge and kitchen for us to make whatever we wanted. Would want to back again.
