I want to start on a positive note, we had a nice family time, the grounds are beautiful, it's away from city life so forces one to chill out. The staff are so friendly. We got it at a good price so can't say it was in any way overpriced! However, this was my 4th stay at Fota and from... More

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing weekend stay at Fota Island Resort. Everything about our stay was excellent from the spa facilities to the amazing breakfast spread. The staff really made the experience special though. Myself and my wife were celebrating an anniversary and once Emma on reception heard this she went out of her way top make... More

We had a lovely weekend just after New Year at Fota Island hotel and spa. The staff throughout the hotel were a pleasure to deal with. A special mention though for Natalie who made our stay very special and sorted out our room very quickly upon arrival. And it was a gorgeous room.... Breakfast was really lovely and we ate... More

My wife, our 20 month old daughter and myself visited Fota Island Resort for 3 nights at the beginning of February 2016. In advance of our stay, we received an e mail from the hotel that the Amber Lounge was closed for renovation and that all food, including bar food, would be served in the main dining room. The function... More

Stayed here for two nights with my fiancé. It was fabukous from start to finish. The first night we ate in the bar. The food and wine was gorgeous but a bit on the pricey side for bar food. We got treatments the following day. They were amazing. Only negative thing for me was the pool, jacuzzi and hydrotherapy pools... More

We spent 3 days at Fota Island Resort and cannot understand what this hotel got 5* for.. Rooms, restaurant, SPA barely fit 4* when comparing to other 5* hotels. Breakfast also does not fit in 5* quality. It is recommended to go to a different hotel if you want to feel 5* quality level.

I have just returned from a stay in Fota Island, to say I was disappointed is an understatement. Service in the bar is extremely slow, no organisation or management to supervise. Breakfast was the same, 6 staff in the room but we had to wait 10 minutes to be seated, there were only 2 other tables in the restaurant at... More
