The staff were more than excellent, cannot rate them highly enough! they were charming, helpful and honest! The food was varied and interesting and always tasty.. Ciaran even had plenty of entertainment , there were Indian musicians and even dancers. The huts were simple, clean and practical but still all had an air of 'WOW' about them - i would... More

Great location at Palolem beach! 2 restaurants at this place, and with good food as well. The staff is friendly and helpful. The first nights I had the hut next to the beach and next to one of the restaurants. If you would like an early sleep the noice is too load for this hut. Rest of the nights I... More

A wonderful place to stay right in the middle of Palolem beach. Lovely live music to enjoy over dinner and great atmosphere. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. When in Palolem I would say this is the better places to stay. Good value for money. Breakfast is well organized and I have been told the porridge is super... More

I find it difficult to justify the raving review that Lonely Planet gave this place. However: The location is superb! We had one of the seaview bungalows, and it was practically ON the beach. The huts are clean and they have two nice restaurants attached to their complex. So why is it not a five? It's the small things. The... More

We stayed in Ciarans for 6 nights. The huts were large and generally well appointed with a large, comfortable bed and a reasonable shower, which was mostly hot, but only if you had it early enough. The restaurant was on the beach-front and generally well laid out although the stepped floor levels were a nuisance when carrying food and drink... More

This was our first trip to Goa, and weren't quite sure what to expect. However, after arriving at Ciarans, any concerns soon disappeared. The location is fabulous, directly sited on the beach is great. The beach huts are very clean, with huge king size beds, and clean white bedding. Our hut was just 20 metres from the sand, and we...

We had booked in to some huts down the end of the beach but after one sleepless night in a cockroach infested room we checked out and went straight to Ciarans, thank god we did! It definitely saved our holiday! We were extremely lucky that they were able to accommodate us for 3 nights at such short notice. The staff... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. I would say its a bit pricey for what you get, but it's cute and beachy and you can't beat the location. The rooms were hut style and very authentic. The grounds are gorgeous, secluded and quiet. Bed was comfy, hot water and great porch with chairs and hammock. The restaurant was fantastic, delicious... More

This beautiful resort is located directly on a Palolem beach, 1.5 hrs. by car from Dabolim Airport but it is worth to drive that far. Hotel's grounds are very well maintained. We stayed in a beachfront hut and we loved to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of crushing waves. If you don't like the sound of waves... More

The most beautiful beach and the best accommodation! We stayed here for a week in a sea facing hut and came back craving for more. It was so peaceful to sleep to the sound of waves and wake up to the chirping of birds ignoring sporadic late night loud voices of drunk tourists passing by. Mattress was very good as... More
