Ciaran’s is a beautiful, small resort that is of a class above the other beach huts on Palolem Beach in Goa. I stayed there for a week in May and stayed in the main building, in a room that has fan and air-con, and cable TV. The first thing that struck me was the immaculate garden, with coconut trees, hibiscus...

We'd stayed at Ciarans about 6 or 7 years ago and really liked it. We decided to go again after travelling through northern India as we needed some rest and relaxation. It was just as good this time round. We had a large beach hut right by the beach with spectacular views. There was a terrace with table, chairs and...

We got a hut for two on the beach front - it had a private balcony overlooking the sea with a hammok. The room was comfortable with a large bed and mosquito net, but not luxurious. The bathrooms aren't too great, but due to the eco-policy of the hotel, this can be rightfully excused. The breakfasts are very nice, and...

Ciarans is an awesome place to go if you want to be just by the beach. This is in south goa on Palolem beach, small yet quiet beach. The rooms are clean, hot water, good and comfortable bed. Room tariff includes breakfast which is also very good. Bebinca dessert is a must try if you have a sweet tooth. Only...

Stayed 4 days with friends at Ciarans. Very good service. Delicious food especially seafood. Its a calm place to stay and in the seaview huts you hear the sound of the sea waves! Loved the cheese-garlic nan!

We stayed here for just over two weeks in April (6-24). The location is fantastic & I agree with other reviews staing that the bungalows and location are just about the best on Palolem beach. The staff were an absolute delight, very friendly whilst remaining professional at all times. We stayed in a bungalow right next to the outdoor kitchen...
