Only stayed one night, which I am quite happy about. The room was very dated. I really think nothing has been changed from 1982. Good news is that the room was spacious was a tv in the living room and in the bedroom and the wifi was super fast. We went to have breakfast and there was a long wait... More

We came to meet family members who were also staying at this establishment. Booked a room with king size bed & ocean view, which worked out quite well. However the bathroom is starting to show it's age as the jacuzzi tub is aging with yellow tinge & the metal shower bar is starting to rust! The patio deck has been... More

Stayed in a log cabin less than 100 yards from a beautiful beach (with safe swimming). The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. My sons (10 & 12) loved using the pool, basketball and tennis courts.

We stayed in Tigh-Na-Mara's Oceanview delux studio for two nights. The view was incredible and the room was spacious, renovated & very clean!! If you were staying longer than a couple nights, it may be challenging because there was no dresser or wardrobe to place our clothes. This didnt really effect us during our short visit. We paid around $340... More

There is no airconditioning , the room was very hot , the pilot light on the propane stove was turned on contributing to the intolerable heat. The bed was uncomfortable. The shower did not have a grab bar, nor did it have a non slip surface. The menu choice was very limited and expensive. On the plus side the staff... More

Great family oriented resort with a lovely beach and fine dining , beautiful spa.We stayed in a spa bungalow studio which had everything you needed and was built in a charming log cabin style but had all the modern amenities you might need. Cedars restaurant had terrific food and the Grotto Spa is beautiful.

We all had a great time. The 6 of us hope to return to enjoy the Grotto Spa along with our stay next time. Close to many amenities, Great area for walking. Very enjoyable evening spent eating at the Cedar Restaurant. Our waitress Kimberley went above and beyond to help make our dining experience special.

We had a great time! Very relaxing and family-friendly resort. Good restaurant. The beach is fun, the pool is average. Small hot-tub and not the cleanest of pools, and kinda small too, but adequate. The Grotto lodges are very nice size and comfortable. Found few silverfish on the bathroom floor daily though, and a big spider, so better pest management/insulation... More

A little dated but in a good location and the beach was beautiful. I would stay here again. Walk down to the beach was steep but well worth it. Some of the nights were noisy and the pool area had several unsupervised kids that were throwing toys and jumping in the pool. Would be nice to see children being supervised

We loved the tapas dinner & our spa treatments. The tapas menu does an excellent job of encapsulating the essence of West coast fare and local products - the venue is somewhat less inspiring. The staff was amazing, very friendly, responsive and helpful. The accommodations were sub-par for the price. In the future, we would go back to the spa... More
