“Amazing stay”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

We had a great weekend away for our mam's 50th birthday. The hotel upgraded her room to a suite which was amazing and well worth the money if we had of been paying. When she arrived they had chocolate strawberries& a note to wish her happy birthday. They also had a cake at dinner for her. The dinner was top quality with the canapes & extra touches really making it special. Tim our waiter was very nice & helpful.
We loved the saltwater pool, relaxation room & beach. THe facilities for kids are brilliant, the hotel has thought of everything, from playroom, providing buckets & spades, pool room to toys for the pool.
I booked a massage with Jo and it was the best back massage I've ever got, and I often book treatments.
The price is expensive but well worth it and you are definitely paying for quality. This is our second time to have visited and will definitely return.
The staff in the bar can be a little slow but that is due to the large numbers ordering - it is always packed & food is gorgeous. Apart from that all staff from reception to dining are brilliant and nothing is a trouble.

Room Tip: Corner suite have amazing views, however all rooms have gorgeous balconies

Dear KS,

Thank you for writing about your stay in Inchydoney Island on TripAdvisor.

Happy Birthday to your Mum! I am glad that she enjoyed her upgrade to the suite and the extra little touches for her. Thank you for your kind words for our staff and for mentioning Tim, he is a great asset to the team here and I look forward to passing on your compliments to him.

It was great to read that you enjoyed everything and your family made use of the playroom and also got some time to relax and enjoy some treatments in our spa.

Spent a few days here for a rather indulgent get away from it all Every morning started with a walk along the blue flag beach. There was surfing available through the hotel which was excellent value for money.
The hotel has beautiful spa facilities. The indoor pool is heated sea water and has a full range of thalassotherapy experiences. A sauna and steam room are also available and after you can visit the relaxation rooms overlooking the beach where there are herbal teas, fruit juices and fruit available. It is the most amazing chill out zone I have ever visited. Very low key and relaxed and above all it is scrupulously clean!
The treatments don't really represent great value for money but if you feel like indulging yourself then why not?
The accommodation was lovely and the little complimentary extras made us feel very welcome indeed!

A fabulous hotel, can not be faulted from arrival right through to food and spa. Most of all the friendly pleasant smiling staff make Inchydoney a very special place to stay. The location is just splendid and the views from rooms and dining room are fabulous. I highly reccommend a stay here to recharge the batteries.

Excellent stay in this picturesque slice if heaven.....from our arrival to departure!
Food in the bar was delicious and although it was busy on the night we dined we were served very quickly!
The spa was also very good and staff welcoming and friendly!
I will definitely return again .....hopefully in the near future!

We came here for our last mini break before becoming parents. We wanted to relax and spoil ourselves and Inchydoney came highly recommended. We were not disappointed. The hotel is in a stunning location and we were lucky to have fabulous weather. We ate in the restaurant on both nights and the food was wonderful- we have had bad 'hotel food' experiences in the past but this was on another level. Breakfast was good and varied. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and the staff were superb. This was a perfect place to unwind and we'd definitely return
