Located right on the beach, huts are basic but very clean. Staff are friendly and always willing to help. The food is AMAZING!! Coming from New Zealand even I was impressed with their variety. If only they served it up for breakfast. Krishna, an employee was the most helpful man in the world. I'll be going back for sure.

Food-4/5 Ambience-4/5 Hygiene-4/5 Service-3.5/5 Price-4/5 Situated right on Palolem beach, this place stands out for the neat and bit sophisticated look and feel. The waiters were courteous and service fast. Food has a wide spread but its a tad below being called out of league. But never mind it was good enough for the walk till there from Palolem beach...

I just had my fourth visit to Cirains and will be booking again next year. Krishna the waiter/bartender is always sooo friendly and knows all of my friends names within minutes and recognized those of us that returned again this year. The best food ever, too, we never ate any meals anywhere else! Love the live entertainment in the evenings... More

My girlfriend and I went beach hopping around Goa and while Palolem felt a little bit 'Brits abroad', (sandwich boards on the beach offering pesto pasta and drinks deals to to south end), Ciaran's was lovely. Nice room, beautifully maintained greenery, friendly staff and good food. Couldn't fault it, but if I went back to Palolem I'd stay at the... More

I stayed here for two nights. The whole place is made from rustic materials and solar power. The rooms are romantically lit and during there is hot water. The beds are really comfortable too. The service is outstanding. The staff couldn't be more helpful and pleasant. The restaurant menu is much better than most other beach front restaurants. I would... More

Having stayed at Ciaran's four years ago in the AC apartments, I was delighted to return for 3 nights and stay in the sea front huts. What a wonderful experience to sleep with the sounds of the waves at your bedside. Room is well appointed - very comfy bed with decent quality sheets and an effective mosquito net plus hot... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the beginning of November. Overall it was very pleasant stay and we enjoyed it a lot. Ciaran's beach huts are definitely one of the best ones on Palolem beach. We liked a lot how this place was built up with a little reception together with library, 2 restaurants, huts with different views, main building,... More

I visited along with my wife and 2 yr old kid to this place and must say that its the best place on 'Palolem Beach'. We stayed here for 3 nights and had a pleasant stay. We stayed in a non-AC hut and its perfect for a family of 3 people. The place is always filled with visitors and that... More

Fantastic huts right on the beach. If you're looking for a real taste of Palolem then look no further. Great staff are very welcoming, food is tasty, surroundings are natural. We had a hut overlooking the beach - it was great listening to the sea roll in and all the early chat from the beach workers and boat owners.
