We stayed in Teident for Valentines weekend. I felt it was lacking in atmosphere. The bar was quiet and defiantly lacked something! It's probably a beautiful hotel to stay in during the summer as I'd say there is much more of a buzz about the place. I'm wasn't overly fond of the hotel design it's quite plain and isn't very...

Dear Lmg 1001, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us in the Trident Hotel.

This hotel is a beautiful mixture of modern and old with up to date rooms, all the facilities you expect from a hotel of this class but a cozy old bar with live Irish music. The staff have obviously been well trained, they are attentive without being intrusive. Kudos to their manager. The hotel is set right on the water,...
