We stayed here for a relaxing weekend break and were really pleased, overall. Reception was friendly, quick and efficient. The porter/doorman was a very helpful gent who seemed interested in us having the best time possible. We had spa treatments and were really impressed with the quality of the treatments. Usually, these spas have staff who do little more than rub oil on you! These treatments were the business! Well trained therapists who knew how to give a good strong massage. My wife is a massage therapist and we have an interest in treatments so this is an area that we are sometimes dissappointed in. We had no dissappointments here!
Two small cribs: First, the showers were not working in the spa on Sunday morning but we were warned in advance and an alternative shower area was offered. A bit messy, but these things happen and they handled it well. Second, there were no hair dryers in the changing rooms on the health club/ swimming pool area. When we asked for one, we were told they do not supply any. For a 5-star facility, this was not good.
The food was excellent. From the shacks in Tuppers Bar to La Perla, everything was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. On two days, the hotel was catering for large wedding groups but this did not impact on our enjoyment or service.
