We stayed here in January and really had a terrible stay. The hotel was completely full with queues for the restaurant and bar for dinner out into the lobby. Despite this, they closed for food at the usual time and directed people to the 'fine dining' restaurant (that was separated from the loud noisy family restaurant by a curtain!). They...

Stayed in a suite in Fota Resort for 3 nights, was absolutely fantastic. We have stayed here many times and as always, the staff were just superb. From the breakfast staff to the housekeeping staff, all were extremely helpful and courteous at all times. I had an Indian Head Massage and a Facial in the spa and the ladies who...

We stayed here on a Sunday night in May. Our room was on the second floor and was lovely. I had requested two twin beds for my friend and I but it was a very large king so no problem. It was exceptionally comfortable. We went to use the spa/swimming pool. Changing room was very messy with used towels all...

The golf course is excellent and a lovely place to stay with loads of amenities to visit if you had time.service in the clubhouse is a bit slow but otherwise all good. There is also a choice of 27 holes so you can alternate your course

We had a wonderful family holiday in the Courtyard Lodges located on the grounds of the Fota Resort. We enjoyed the flexibility of self catering accommodation with young children combined with access to all the amenities of the luxurious hotel. This is our 2nd year staying at Fota and won't be our last. Quite simply a fantastic experience. Fota's main...

My family celebrated my daughter's First Communion here on May 13th this year. We had a party of 15 in the restaurant and the meal exceeded all expectations - it was truly wonderful. The food was matched by the service - both simply superb! The restaurant was very busy and at capacity yet there was no delay or any problem...

We had a great stay in the lodges, clean, quiet and nicely laid out. It's a great location and we had lots of excursions within close proximity. We'll definitely be returning and would certainly recommend to friends Only issues were that the front door lock would unlock when you pull down on the handle - granted it's useful in an...

We rented the fuschia lodges for the week. Excellent "condo" style with three bedrooms and bathrooms (even though it was just my wife and me), very nice kitchen and living space, and more. It would be great if you had kids with you to have your own space and even a little back yard to play in. My only complaint...

This is a great resort with tasteful decoration, large bedrooms, and dedicated service. There are several walking trails in the beautiful nature around the hotel, and a very large swimming pool. The food is excellent. I would not be able to complain of anything.
