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...

We stayed at Ciaran's for 5 nites in may. Since it was off-season we dint find too much difficulty getting acco here (could get tricky in period season period of dec to feb). The best part about this place is its location. Located in the middle of the stretch of the beach, it gives equal access to southern n northern...

Stayed here for 3 of our 4 intended nights in a garden facing beach hut. Great service, food, and location! We just couldn't bear the heat in our non-a/c hut. Also found our room to be a little dingy, but it's probably because we arrived towards the end of the season. Sheets could have been a bit cleaner. Best part...

We stayed for 4 nights at Ciaran's and really enjoyed our stay there. We had a gorgeous sea facing hut which was really nicely presented and very spacious. We walked up and down the beach on our first day and couldn't see any other beach huts that even compared to Ciaran's so we were really pleased with our choice. The...

Easily the best beach huts on palolem but come at about 5x the price of everywhere else. The staff however are very unhelpful and see their work as a chore. Apart from that its OK, no need to book in advance if you want to shop around as there are plenty of alternatives on the beach.
