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...

The view is awesome. If you are looking for a place to watch some amazing sunsets, for just a hop, skip and jump into the ocean, and somewhere that is clean, then this is the place for you. The ciaran huts are rustic but immaculate. I stayed in a non sea view hut. This means that the hut is literally... More

We stayed at Ciarans for 8 days and had a truly wonderful time made all the better by the people looking after us. The service and food were excellent and superb value and the garden and huts are pretty, clean and homely. If you're expecting 5* in this part of India, it doesn't exist and this is more basic living... More

Loved the tropical feeling, the property is so lush and gorgeous but the huts are very basic & very hot..we chose the beachfront hut..usually I would prefer beachfront but in this case would have preferred a garden view as they were much more intimate and cozy ! The beachfront huts are a little noisy and very hot! But overall I... More

I have to question how many beach huts other reviewers have stayed in as this place is pretty average. Huts are nice but bathrooms very basic - especially considering this is way more expensive than nearly all the other options in Palolem and around. Fact, there is a negligible number of solar panels meaning it is highly lucky if you... More
