I noticed while in India, not just here, that: You get what you ask for - the staff will do anything to help, and even go out of their way, once you've asked, but may not necessarily ask you what you need! this is a different from in the uk and unless you get the hang of it in India, one could sometimes feel neglected.
Although (mostly) everyone speaks English, I eventually found it helpful to ask some staff to repeat what I'd asked for because misunderstandings are inevitable, this will help their english and ensures that you get what you want.
The food was AMAZING, so healthy, tasty and attractive. My children have different dietry needs and the European owner encouraged me to ask for anything we would need, they would put it on their shopping list. We stayed here 6 weeks!

The place is well situated up in the palm trees a short walk up the hill at the south end of Palolem beach. The accommodation is basic but the huts are very picturesque.
The open-air restaurant area serves lovely breakfasts and evening meals in a romantic setting.
The staff however are not particularly friendly or helpful unless you are part of an organised yoga group. The first time we stayed (April)we baked to death and weren't offered a fan. The second time (Jan) we froze and weren't offered blankets. They must have known what the weather conditions would be like at night. Also the local dogs are very vocal at night.
This hotel is a nice more upmarket base in Palolem than the usual run of the mill coco huts down on the beach. We paid 400 a night for the coco hut, 600 for the ground floor en suite. The other people staying there were all very into their yoga and extremely unfriendly to us mere tourists.
