Just back from a wonderful overnight break in Fota, a beautiful hotel, lovely staff and great food. After a few hours relaxing in the spa we had lazed over a delicious afternoon tea, dinner later that night was excellent, fantastic experience, will definitely be back again

Just back after a night at the Fota Island resort. Have to say what a fantastic stay from start to finish. On arrival we were met by a lovely lady called Diane who directed us to the check in desk. We were checked in and informed of all the services available to us. Our room was lovely and the bathroom... More

We had a great experience in the Hotel, the Staff were friendly in all areas.The Spa area was fabulous and we were both very happy with the treatments we had. People talking loudly in the quiet room was a bit annoying. Breakfast was great, I had Porridge and poached eggs made for me and we were both delighted with our... More

I booked a night here last year with my partner. On telling my friends about this they said they did not enjoy their stay as they thought they were treated like second class citizens and unfortunately so we're we. Felt very uneasy sitting in the bar that night and we're constantly asked were we ok. I like most people like... More

Stayed here a few weekends ago with my wife and my 1 year old son. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Got room service for dinner and breakfast (it's just easier with a roaming 1 year old). Food was excellent on both occasions. The pool area is great for kids. Each changing room has 2 separate areas to change children... More

Stayed in this hotel in March 2015. This hotel is very relaxing. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The grounds are peaceful and there are lovely walks. The wildlife park is very close to this hotel also. I found the restaurant menu very limited however the food we did order was lovely and well presented. I would highly recommend... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some feedback. I was disappointed to hear that, while you enjoyed your first night's stay with us and the wedding you attended at the Resort, the second day of your visit was underwhelming. I must apologise without reservation for any inconvenience caused to you and your family. I have attempted... More
