Had a great time. No one is pushy and it's a pretty good location. The only downside was that they were so un-pushy that you had to really get someone's attention to get another drink or your bill. Also a bit of a pain to use the washroom.

Also the cleanest... More

Ryans is really great,l. The location, cleanliness, staff, MUSIC, and the view are perfect. So close to water sports, as well. I really enjoyed my fresh juice and the sun bed. Don't miss it.

Great spot! Easy access to the sea off the sun beds, quiet end of the beach, no hassle and Ryan has a great collection of "blissed out beats!" The food is also super tasty! Perfect spot to unwind!

We have been using Ryan's Shack for 5 years and in that time the food has always been excellent, cleanest toilets on Candolim beach; Ryan, Rupe and staff very friendly - can't wait to go back and see them asap. Thank's for a great time at your shack and all the best for next season.
