Fota Island Hotel & Spa
Not 5 star standard
Had dinner on night of arrival, ordered the ''Game Pie'' which was not actually a pie just a bowl of Stew with a cold puff pastry hat placed on-top. Drain in shower was clogged so no water would drain out leaving water all over the bathroom area. Breakfast also poor, waiting 15 minutes for eggs then came out cold, left them to the side while I finished my tea and was not asked my anyone about the eggs. Did not get to complain at check-out because there was nobody on reception so just dropped in my room key.

Avoid during school holidays or business events
I've stayed here a couple of times before and was happy with the stay. However, I stayed recently during halloween week when the hotel was running an event. I arrived on Tuesday and couldn't park, there was no reserved residents parking. I went down to the bar for dinner. No tables and a 30 minute wait. So I ordered room service. It took 1 hour and 45 mins to arrive. Breakfast the following day was average, the smoked salmon was horrible. The next evening after a short wait I did manage to get a table and I ordered Penne Arrabiata which I described as overooked pasta in tomato soup with dried bits of chicken in. The hotel itself is nice, it's in a lovely location, but when they run events they need to look after the residents.

Lovely even for a one night visit. I received a wonderful facial while hubby explored the grounds. Dinner delightful in the casual cafe. Spectacular pools. Make treatment reservations EARLY.

Beautiful Resort
Property was beautiful. Room and facilities were amazing. Great breakfast. Only complaint was that they were doing construction on some buildings behind our room and the noise was so loud that we really couldn’t enjoy our balcony for very long.
