Huts are beautiful. I liked their efforts to make the place eco friendly. But most of the staff was rude and unfriendly. They refused to even wash baby bottles and sterilize them. On multiple requests when they finally agreed, the supposedly washed and sterilized bottles were dirty from inside! So I had to go to different restaurant to get the... More

The resort is situated slap bang in the middle of Palolem beach. We had a seafront hut and it was more than adequate for our 9 day stay. The beds are comfortable and at the end of the day the showers are hot. The restaurant staff are tireless and provide service with a smile all day (and night) long. The... More

I came here as part of a wedding party from Delhi. After the craziness of the big city this is the perfect place to unwind. If you can get one of the huts and if you are particularly organized get one of the huts located next to the beach. The huts are beautifully made and very comfortable on the inside.... More

We refused to stay in the first room due to the discoloured mould on the wall. the second room was... More

Dear wutan_thai, Thank you for your review. Just a quick reminder that you stayed in Ciaran's during the Monsoon season when we maintain only 4 rooms in the permanent building for those who enjoy Goa at this time of the year in order to have a quiet or even lonely holiday. Travellers who inspired by Monsoon season are aware that... More

We visited Ciaran’s in Dec 2015. It is such an amazing setting. Palolem has some of the best beaches in Goa with lovely fine white sand and a sheltered bay. The beach huts are just metres from the sea and are idyllic with lovely, large, four poster beds (with nets) and en-suite bathroom. The surrounding gardens are beautifully looked after... More

Ciaran's three resorts are absolutely stunning, and if the views don't instantly relax you, it will be the attentiveness and helpfulness of the staff. The rooms on all three sites from the huts to glamping (the way it should be!) were finished to extremely high standards and oozed luxury. We were surprised to see air conditioning in the glamping tents.... More

Lovely location right on the beach front of palolem- one of the more quiet and relaxed beaches in Goa. The cabin we stayed in was right at the back of the property, however it was still very lovely. The restaurant staff were very helpful, and we especially enjoyed the breakfasts. There was free yoga every morning at 7, and free... More

We've stayed at Ciaran's 3 times now and each stay gets better and better. Everyone working here is helpful, cheerful and quick to smile. Gardens are lush green and beautifully kept. Located on the beach you enjoy a view of the sea and lulled to sleep by gentle sounds of waves. Best of all the live music (jazz, spanish guitar,... More
