I took my fiance out to Tigh Na Mara for a weekend getaway. The rooms are not luxurious or modern. It is more laid back in a cabin/lodge sort of way. This is ideal to get away from our modern society. I found this type of accommodation to be equally relaxing and enjoyable. We had a jacuzzi in our room and was located right on the beach. Some other units are a bit inland from the beach. Our room had a patio that opened up to the beach and water. It was amazing to see the water come inland and go back out. The pockets of water it made for what seemed like 1/2 a kilometer was pretty neat.
Upon check in they gave me a map. I was wondering why I would need a map but then started driving to the building my room was in. The property is huge.
The service was great. Everyone seemed knowledgeable and ready to help. The bed provided a great sleep. The environment was quiet. Play area for children. Tennis courts with rentable ball and tennis racket. Overall, very laid back and fun.
I went to the grotto spa. Didn't get a massage because I phoned in too late. So I just took a dip and enjoy the Tree Top Tapas while wearing a bath robe and slippers. This was fun.
Drove around the area for nice restaurants and was pleased to come across a couple. Well worth the trip from Victoria. Would stay again if time permits.
