I don't know how useful this review will be for the average guest but here goes...
I got married at the Desmond (ceremony, reception and two night stay) and the service was excellent, the accomodations were great and the hotel itself is a unique experience. Anything I needed or wanted was provided right away.
The bar is great. It has a mix of comfortable couches and chairs and wooden bar stools and tables. The bartenders are friendly, knowledgable and professional. Actually, the entire staff was like that.
The rooms themselves were a little ordinary (except for the suites). There was also an odd smell most likely caused by the indoor pool and live plants. Otherwise, no complaints.
