Been there a couple of times. It never disappoints. The sea view room near the kitchen is noisy , but rest any of the 16 rooms are fine. Also if it is full, try art house .. But Palolem is my favourite beach and Ciarans is my first choice

With Tripadvisor having great reviews for this place, I felt it was indeed one of those gems that would make it a perfect vacation. However, Ciaran's has been a big letdown on several aspects. BOOKING: I am not sure who handles the email replies which come from a "John Coutinho", as I normally noticed only "Marvin" at the reception most...

It was clean, location was excellent and wifi was free throughout the meal. However food was overpriced for the quality, chicken and prawns over cooked and not the tastiest tandoori around. Service was ok, we had to ask twice for our salad to arrive and the boss had to call one of his staff to our table. There are better...

Ciaran's was such a pleasure to stay in on the beach in beautiful Palolem. The luxury huts, two lovely restaurants and staff made our stay a very pleasant one! Marvin the manager couldn't have been nicer, the accommodation was lovely, and the tapas bar cafe and their main restaurant overlooking the sea was great. Would definitely recommend Ciarans as a...

Stayed here for a week in November. Great beach front location, wonderful friendly staff; Marvin the manager is great and will do anything for you with a smile! The grounds are immaculate, rooms are fairly basic but clean and you can request to have your room cleaned and fresh sheets daily. Hot water was a bit hit and miss and...

Goa was the first stop on our first visit to india and we'd been booked into Ciaran's from 27th Dec - 1st Jan.

The very best option in Palolem beach. We stayed in one of the suite rooms. Perfect stay, although could have been better if they had clean the room because the sand from the beach. Very good restaurant but with slow staff

On our first summer holiday in a long time, we went to Goa and stayed in Ciarans on Paloem beach. When we arrived after a long days travelling I was delighted to see the lovely beach hut we were staying in Ciarans. The atmosphere was buzzing and it also had a lovely homely feel about it. We stayed for our...

A big thankyou to all of the staff at Ciaran's - it had been recommended already by a friend and I loved my 10 days there. We had a hut overlooking the sea with a balcony and hammock which was perfect for our needs. Beautiful garden setting with a lot of attention to detail. All of the staff, especially the...
