It's my second time staying at Reid's and again it didn't disappoint. The service is truly 5*, the pools and access to the sea very pleasant indeed. The breakfast, one of the best I ever experienced. Would happily go back soon

As all previous guests I thought the staff were really helpful and pleasant. The property itself was very well maintained and the interior was as you would expect for a 5 star hotel with this reputation (price was reflecting this of course). The down side was the poor air conditioning in the rooms and especially in the breakfast area (actually... More

Reids is a difficult one to assess. Some bits are excellent others are very disappointing but, over all, I would say our experience was three star. The worst thing for my wife and I was that we went for a quiet break due to having read reviews on Tripadvisor about the hotel having an older client demographic with not many... More

What a fantastic location and hotel - everything is real quality. The hotel rooms, the grounds, swimming pools, service, staff and food are top quality. The rooms with a sea view are worth paying the extra and you won't be disappointed. This is the ideal hotel for a special occasion close to town and where you will treated special.

A classic stylish hotel with all the luxury amenities. We had a spacious and comfortable junior suite with a small balcony overlooking the cliff on the sea, a breathtaking view! The breakfast buffet has an outstanding choice of delicacies. A pleasant and well equipped swimming pool area, with stairs and an elevator going down to the sea with bathing area... More

Tea at Reid's was booked as a surprise treat for me by my husband after our scuba diving session earlier in the day. Though we originally booked for 3pm we called to change this to 5pm due to an overrun with the Scuba Diving and they were very accommodating, it wasn't a problem. We arrived at 5pm and our waiter...

I do not know where to start really. After a tough year in 2015, we wanted to go somewhere special this year. Reid's Palace ticked all of the boxes. The place is spotless. The rooms are fantastic. We were treated like Royalty the minute we arrived. The restaurants are fantastic. We stayed half board and the evening meals were fantastic.... More
