I can't recommend this place enough - they are soooooo good to us when we stay here! The guys in the restaurant especially Krishna - all of them - were so kind to our son and even let him pretend wait on some of the tables when it was quiet! We just feel so at home here. Don't expect perfection...

Ciaran's is one of the nicest places on the beach, also one of the most expensive. It has a central location which is great. The restaurant is decent (all the prices on the beach are pretty much the same) and the breakfast included is ok (bread, fruit, yogurt, cereal, instant coffee. But eggs are extra and if you can't stomach...

This was our second stay at Ciarans, we were there 3 years ago. It is without doubt one of the nicest, relaxed, and beautifully set up places to stay. Apart from the setting the thing that really makes it so pleasant is the staff. The guys at Ciarans are the best. In fact they are friends. We will be returning...

We stayed at the hotel for 10 nights, firstly in a pond side room and then in the AC wind tunnel room. Ciaran's is a beautiful hotel right in the heart on Palolem. Some of the staff are really friendly and helpful (Linda who managed reception plus Chris and Paul in the restaurant in particular). The free breakfast and afternoon...

We booked 4 nights at Ciaran's (it was a last minute recommendation from someone we met while travelling a few days earlier). Their recommendation was spot on because Ciaran's was just perfect and we ended up staying here for 14 nights!!! You couldn't wish for nicer beach huts... good size, comfy bed, mozzie net, super clean, no bugs, nice bathroom,...

With 3 days in Palolem we booked Ciarans on a friends recommendation and we were very glad we chose it. We booked a Tunnel Hut with A/C and we couldn't believe our luck when we realised it was right on the beach front. With decking chairs and a hammock on our private balcony this was the perfect chill spot looking...

I had a great 4 night stay at Ciaran's. There are several hut types to choose from and without being fully sure, having not been on the property before, I took a gamble and won. I love staying in my "partial beach view" hut. Best choice for me for sure!! It offered me the privacy that I like...so I can...

We visited this place last month. The hotel is very easy to find, right on the beach and has a very good green setting. My son loved it as much as we did as it has a lot of sand to play, there is a pond with fishes and every hut has a hammock. We initially stayed in garden area...

This was our second stay at Ciaran's and was just as great as the first time. It's so tranquil and relaxing to come back to the beautifully kept gardens and pond after a hot day at the beach. Excellent service, really nice people and lovely food - food in the tapas restaurant is especially nice. Can't wait to stay again...
