Stayed in this hotel for a Saturday Night. It is need of a major investment to bring it up to the standard that it deserves. The pool is a nice extra and its location is fantastic right on the beach but as the fact is its only open seasonal maybe its not viable to invest in it. The staff were... More

We held our wedding reception here and without doubt was a fantastic day. Mark and his team could not have been more helpful. The food, location was excellent. We had family stay here from N Ireland, and they loved it. Honeymoon suite was beautiful. Thanks again to all at Clonea for making our day so special. Nora + Paul.

We have just returned from two nights at this hotel, we being 7 adults and 7 children aged 8 to 2 years. As previous reviews say the hotel is quite dated and in need of refurbishment. It's very old fashioned and I don't really like bed spreads on hotel beds. The rooms were spotlessly clean, which is very important to... More
