I first stayed at Ciaran's on a trip to India in 2004 and have gone back there to stay and/or eat every single time I can since. It is PARADISE and the last time I was there in January of this year, it had only gotten better as far as im concerned. You can see from the pictures people have...

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.

Stayed for 4 nights with 3 friends. These are by far the best beach huts on Palolem Beach. We stayed here after reading all the good reviews on trip advisor and the place didn't disappoint. Good standard of hut, don't expect 5 star luxury but perfectly suitable for India. 4 poster bed with Mosquito net, plenty of room and a...

I have recently returned from an amazing stay at Ciarans, I was in the beach hut with sea views next to the restaurant and despite the review from a previous person who found it too noisy I thought it was fine. It was always quiet after 11pm which was fine . The matress was so comfortable and the seaview was...

This was our first stop in India and our plan was to stay here for 4 nights. However we found it impossible to leave and ended up staying for nearly 2 weeks!! The rooms are great (we stayed in about 5!) and it doesnt get much better than waking up to the sound of the Indian ocean. One of the...

It’s hard to find enough superlatives for Ciaran’s Hotel. I’ve just completed my second annual pilgrimage and am having severe withdrawal symptoms back in London. For those that think primarily with their stomachs, Ciaran’s centres around a beach view restaurant and bar, stocked with ice-cold drinks and fuelled by a tandoori oven. Rarely has fresh seafood tasted so good, so...

I read all these positive reviews and wish that I had a better experience during my 4 day stay. I booked an oceanview room, which at first sight was nice. It had a hammock, great view of the beach, mosquito net over the bed, basic room & bathroom features. The bad feature of my oceanview bungalow is the fact that...
