“Amazing stay!! Cant wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We had the most amazing stay at The Scarlet Hotel and we cant wait to go back.

We can not fault anything, the hotel and rooms are immaculate, the staff are so friendly and happy to accommodate any request and the food is lovely – we stayed 2 nights and had a different breakfast and diner menu on each day which we thought was really good. We also liked the fact you get a jug of juice on each table in the morning rather than having to keep getting up to re-fill a tiny glass like most hotels.

We ended up getting a free upgrade to the best room in the hotel through a mix up with rooms which was so unexpected but fully appreciated, the rooms are lovely – so clean and fresh.

We stayed on the 2 night mid week spa package which included breakfast, 3 course meal on both nights, a spa treatment each and a cliff top hot tub. The massage I had was so relaxing and then the deep relaxation room after was incredible – I could have happily slept in there all day. This hotel was recommended to us and we had been told the deep relaxation room was a little off putting as you could hear people walking about in the room above, they had left feedback to say this and I was delighted to receive a pair of head phones to listen to chilled music which completely drowns out any noise so it was nice to see the hotel takes feedback and acts on it.

I would highly recommend the cliff top hot tub, so romantic and a stunning view.

The 2 days we had were so perfect and as partner proposed to me on the gorgeous beach we have a good excuse to keep returning to this stunning spa hotel!!

Room Tip: when booking ask for a room on the upper levels for the best sea view

It was a surprise birthday pressie for my husband wow did i enjoy it too.... The team contacted me prior to our stay, helping me to choose the perfect extras. On arrival i was thrilled to be shown around, and to be told they had upgraded our room or should i say apartment WOW, the view, the size the attention to detail heavenly. All the staff were professional, helpful and made our stay so special. The food was glorious and the sunset hot tub experience awesome as our girls would say ! i am already planning our next visit, just making space in the diary.

Do not delay book now for one of best hotels/experiences in the world !!!!

Room Tip: no phone signal but free WI FI so enjoy the peaceful atmosphere

What a pleasure to find such a lovely Hotel. Clean, comfortable and in a great location. Very pleasant staff and good food. A different take on traditional Hotels in design and layout. Would recommend.

There is no doubt that this is by best hotel we've ever stayed in..... the location is perfect! Excellent food and service. Hot tubs on the cliff top. We stayed in a generous room and slept with the patio doors each night, so soothing listening to the waves below.

A sanctuary - in the true sense of the word - beautiful, calm and serene with the most delicious food surrounded by nature and art all provided by wonderful service. Our 3 days felt like at least a weeks break . We left refreshed, revived and thoroughly spoilt. The Journey at the Spa was the best experience I've had - great value compared to other spa experience I've had. If you really need to stop and be - just book a break here.

This was a very special treat for my fiance and I, as we don't really have the funds to stay in places like this on a regular basis! I have to say, although it was expensive, it was money well-spent. The hotel itself is unlike anywhere we have ever stayed and was very special. We stayed in a 'unique' room, which was just that, and we enjoyed the luxury it afforded. The room service was wonderful and I very much enjoyed sipping a cocktail whilst reclining in the bathtub! It was lovely to stroll down to the bar in the evening and be waited on whilst we waited to go to the restaurant for our evening meal. The food, again, was a special treat as it was very rich and opulent, and had obviously been given a lot of thought. They were also very accommodating of my 'gluten free status' and advised me on what dishes could be altered to suit me. All in all, this was a wonderful treat and we had a wonderful time.
