Just back from a wonderful 3 night stay at the faultless beach hotel! What a perfect hotel for anyone wanting to get away in the most beautiful part of the country.
Must start by reviewing the hotel- modern yet cosy, situated just on the beach, spotless with great character- faultless! We got a sea-view room and were blessed with beautiful weather for October. Perfect, spacious, modern bedrooms, huge flatscreen tv (not that we put it to use!) and seating area to enjoy the breathtaking scenery!
Food was suberb, great selection for breakfast ranging from melon and grapefruit to your full fry up- perfect after a night spent in the bar! For dinner we had fish every night (Scampi was fab!) Tasted like it had just been pulled from the sea! Bar was cosy with a fire lit every night, live music to enjoy while you play a game of pool-couldn't beat it!
Leaving the best to last-the staff! We left the place feeling like one of their own! Without going into too much detail, we had car trouble (to put it lightly). Every member of staff got involved with helping us get back home safely! Never knew the kindness and generousity of people still existed until that day! From manager to night porter everyone went out of their way to make it an amazing holiday under the circumstances! Thank you Charlie, Maraide, Darragh and Eddie and all your staff for your help. Will be back indefinatley in the near future.
