We are still here. We arrived about 2pm; it was a wet, windy miserable day and we got a friendly greeting and a fast check in by the cheery receptionist. Good start. The room was huge comfortable and we were delighted. Getting better. Time for a Bewleys Irish tea and biscuit in the room. Off to the leisure centre, fab huge steam room and equally fab huge jacuzzi, both at perfect temperature which is so important. Now great. Dinner was 2 seafood chowder a chicken Caesar salad main and a baked salmon main, all very good to excellent. A special word about the sublime cocktails - truly bloody wonderful - best I've had in a long time (Mai Tai & Manhattans) and I had 3 cruises in 2012, so I've had my fair share of cocktails including cruising around the Caribbean swilling Bermudan rum cocktails (Goslings rum). All staff über friendly and we are looking forward to a great night's sleep and brekky. Oh I read some reviews whinging about this place - I found little fault and I'm hard to please having spent the last 35 years travelling extensively. Tell you the truth we've been in 5 stars in Ireland (Donegal & Fermanagh) and this place is as good in many aspects - ok it's not haute cuisine and the chef here is a bit fond of balsamic reduction decorations on the plates but the level of warm friendliness, comfort, facilities and food make this place a worthwhile stay and if you do - don't miss the fab cocktails. We'll be back.
