I don't usually leave feedback but I felt compelled to rave about this place. With 3 young kids, we thought this weekend was excellent. We are literally 100 ft from Tigh-na-mara. or twice the price, you get more. Our kitchen had a oven, stove, full fridge, dishwasher, vacuum when the kids trekked in sand. We stayed at 216 which from the pictures did not dissappoint. There is an elevator which we used to easily move our bags in. Tim at the front desk was VERY accomodating, always able to provide extra dishwasher tablets, plastic bags. They recycle paper, plastic, metal and glass which other facilities do not. Everyday our kids would walk downhill 5 minutes to the beach. our suite was very clean. Fridge looked like it was cleaned frequently and extra towels were always available. We had friends who stayed at Tigh-na-mara and they paid twice as much. our place was bigger and much brighter. Security was never a problem with special codes to get in and out. $1.25 (5 quarters) for a wash and dryer, important. The pictures at their website are recent and descriptions are accurate. Staff was professional. Grounds were well manicured. Bring a kite for kids and lots of beach toys. Fire place in the suite will keep you warm at night. Bring stuff to BBQ.
