Nicest place to stay on the beach if you are here June-Sept and all the huts are closed. Very comfortable if you want a standard room with cable/ac/ hot water. We generally forego these things for simple huts but there are nine open in Palolem in the summer. Cottages available for families as well.

My worst experience in my trip to India. The owner was the most rude person I ever met. His work as a Hotel manager consisted in doing nothing and be sitting at the restaurant with his friends all day, looking at people and guests with a " poop face" . At least his friends did say hello and were more... More

Stayed in February for 6 nights. This is probably the best place to stay on the beach! The huts are well built, quite spacious with a comfortable bed; the garden areas are very well kept. The restaurant is also excellent and has good fish available. Palolem beach has lots of good places to eat and drink and whilst is picturesque,... More

We stayed here in March for 6 nights and I cannot wait to go back. When we arrived in Palolem we had pre booked 2 nights in the Cuba beach huts which were down the beach. They were terrible, especially when you compare them to Ciaran's. We basically checked in to cuba and then spent the day walking the length... More

We stayed here back in March for 8days. A great little resort that whilst making money really cares about the guests. By far the best huts on the beach, clean and secure. The bar area is friendly and really nice surroundings. The gardens are a kept immaculate with all the staff at least once a week giving the whole resort... More

Having looked at most the huts on this beach I can say ciarans is the nicest and the restaurant is also the nicest setting and probably the best food. It is more expensive than the rest but let's face it, if you're coming from uk these are still extremely cheap prices! We stayed in a sea front room which I... More

We spent 10 days in various rooms at Ciaran's. The huts are basic but very functional and well maintained. The 2 restaurants are both very good and enjoy good seaviews right on the beach. The food served in both of these restaurants was markedly better than anything else we ate anywhere in Palolem. The staff were not only extremely welcoming... More

We stayed for 3 nights in garden view cottage named Kolkata (behind the restaurant) and would rate it very high on cleanliness and the ambience. Location is just awesome right in the center of the Palolem beach, another set of cottages located at the back also have similar interiors however are a bit congested as they are located very adjacent...

I recently spent a week with a friend at Ciaran's, and we absolutely loved it. The huts were very clean and pleasant, despite not having air con. The breakfast served for all guests in the morning was always lovely, and the staff really made the stay enjoyable. Perfect location, I will definitely be coming back to stay at Ciaran's in... More
