After envying the look and feel of Ciarans on a previous Goan holiday, i decided to book here for my 8th Wedding Anniversary. While the resort is a beautiful and comfortable to stay, the food and service are truly terrible. From rancid butter at breakfast to stale cheese, smelly fish, we got it all. On complaining, we were told very... More

I spent two weeks at Ciaran's with a friend and I could not recommend it highly enough. The accommodation was nice and clean, significantly better than other huts we saw. In addition, there is hot water (unlike many other places!), free breakfast, chai tea and cake and mineral water. It is very difficult to get bored at Ciaran's as there... More

Came to this place after reading the reviews but we were highly disappointed. Even though the ambience is good,the service and attitude was depressing.highly recommend to give it a second thought if any desi is planning to stop by.

My girlfriend and I spent a week here over the Christmas period and wow what a place. The staff are amazing, food delicious and beach huts eco-friendly and tranquil. Our hut was literally on the beach and we woke to the sounds of waves each morning. The masala omelette for breakfast was incredible and the complimentary chai tea at 4pm... More

We have been to Palolem before and had a great time but wanted to stay closer to the middle of the beach and I'm so pleased we picked Ciaran's for our Christmas holidays! Firstly the grounds as you walk in are very pleasant, winding paths off to the bungalows and a central pond next to a very well finished restaurant.... More

We booked Ciaran's for two nights based on the Lonely Planet recommendation and wow, we were not disappointed, we even extended our stay! Our hut had a garden view and was more spacious than those without views; tastefully decorated in keeping with the surroundings and little touches like candles and incense sticks really added to the experience. The staff were... More

We stayed at Ciaran's for a week at the beginning of December and had a great time. We first stayed here three years ago and were so glad we went back. It's just quality and doesn't try too hard - everything has been well thought out and the little touches to the rooms, bar and restaurant make such a difference.... More

Loved, loved, loved our stay at Ciaran's. I am a bit of a tough critic when it comes to hotel rooms. When I was looking at the pictures of Ciaran's online I was a little concerned about the beach hut minimalist style. All of my preconceived judgements were put to a stop when we arrived. We stayed in a partial... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ciaran's after 10 days for traveling of sight seeing in France and New Delhi and attending a friend's Indian wedding. Needless to say, we were in need of some rest and relaxation and we got it at Ciaran's. First of all, I really liked that Ciaran's seems to be the only place on the... More

Ciaran's is definitely one of the smarter looking beach restaurants in Palolem and in our experience, the food is among the best. 'Yes' it may be a few rupees more expensive than some of the other establishments set back from the beach but we found the competency of the chef, quality of presentation and general ambience, more than made up...
