We stayed at Ciaran's for 5 nights in March, in one of the garden huts. The hut was spacious and comfortable, with a nice big bed with mosquito net. The garden was beautiful - a real haven to return to after an outing or the beach. Although Ciaran's is quite expensive, by the time you allow for the fact that... More

I stayed at Ciaran's for 2 weeks in March, and it was just wonderful. The staff are sweet, helpful, and always smiling, Marvin the manager is fantastic, and the beach huts are incredibly comfortable and clean. Its more expensive than other places on the beach but totally worth it, I don't have a single complaint, just can't wait to go... More

We spent 3 nights at Ciarans during a 2 week holiday in Candolim and as soon as we set eyes on Palolem and then on Ceirans we realised that this place would have suited us far better for the whole trip. We arrived early in the morning and were met by Mervyn who was exceptionally friendly,knowledgeable and kind. Ciarans is... More

One of the best restaurants on the beach with great food, like chicken tika, tandoori chicken, and kafta. And it has free wifi. Breakfast is buffet for hotel guests and a la carte for visitors. We went there for breakfast almost every day for the good coffee and western breakfast even though we were staying at the Palolem Beach House.... More

My wife and I have just returned from a trip to Goa. We spent the first week in crazy Candolim. After that we were looking forward to 5 day break in Palolem. As an retired travel agent of 30 years I wanted some nice accommodation. Palolem being famous for a “beach hut” resort we were a bit dubious about what... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights last week and were quite disappointed to be honest. When we booked our stay there was only one room left to book and clearly it was the worst one. It (ironically) was named Kushi. Most of the rooms are cottages/shacks but we were given a room in a small building, which... More
