the location is excellent and the place is full with foreigners. But as a Indian if you enter here don't expect good service. There is a extremely high discrimination between Indians and foreigners. Again at the restaurant, though the food is good, but if you are indian you are not the priority to serve. Overall a poor experience in good... More

I returned to Palolem ten years after my previous visit as a cash-strapped backpacker, determined to stay at this beautiful resort I used to walk past thinking "I will stay there one day". Well even after ten years the reality did not undermine the dream...Ciaran's is perfection. I stayed in one of the garden huts fully kitted out with mosquito... More

Myself and my mum stumbled across Ciaran's when we visited Palolem Beach and thought we would give it a go as it looked really cute. We stayed in one of the beach huts and it was lovely. Air con, wifi, hot water, free drinking water and breakfast all included within a reasonable price. As we were based elsewhere for the... More

Great quality huts and rooms right next to the beach. Helpful staff. Good communal book/game shelf. Decent restaurant and bar with breakfast included as well as free chai and cake in the afternoon. Immaculately kept gardens and good looking buildings. Only negative was the price as we found (not quite as pristine, but compatible) huts for less than half the... More

Nobody should book any beach hut experience and expect luxury but these are as close to it as you'll get. Huts have patio seating, effective mosquito nets over the beds and a fan over the bed which makes sleeping comfortable. En suite bathroom with actual hot (not just warm) water! Whole resort is clean and staff are lovely. Breakfast is... More

Ciaran's is one of the more posh shacks on Palolem beach and caters to a different sort of crowd I guess. Their breakfast is decent and ambience is pretty plush. They do lack some of that earthy homey Goa feel though frankly.

We arrived at ciarans having booked on their website to find that our booking had disappeared... Not a problem we were accommodated in a very nice garden room . Friendly staff, free use of games and well stocked library. We tended to eat elsewhere as there are lots of great food options along the beach. Breakfast was fine and the... More

This was our 4th stay at Ciarans & sadly our most disappointing. We had problems booking online & told it was now the only method of making a reservation, after several emails & calls it was eventually sorted out (software issue). We had booked 2 garden huts & on arrival were told this wasn't possible, but we were to have... More

It was my first time on Goa so was not sure what to expect as we were suggested this accommodation by our travel agent. Having read the reviews, we had some doubts but were also encouraged by a number of positive reviews. I have to say that once again I was not disappointed by tripadvisor comments. If a property has... More
