The place accommodation was good JUST very very dark. Even with every light on in the place I felt like we were in a cave. I found all of the staff to be pleasant which was much appreciated. Our dinner at Cedars was good.

My husband and I went for the weekend to this resort. I stayed in the tesort some years ago. My general impresion is that it has deterioreted. The room was nice but the bed was soft. The quality of food at the bar and coffee shop was terrible. It needs many improvements.

Everything we booked was reviewed and confirmed yet when we checked in my one daughter was missing all her info and the service agent had to go checking to find if she was even booked.

The room requires a renovation. Washrooms are of a early 1990 design but the cleanliness was amazing. For the rate paid the room should be much nicer. The ocean made up for the room and the staff are amazing all around. We spent no time in room and had hard time sleeping as the room is so old it is...

Nice place but not what we expected. We thought a spa resort would be more restful. It was more like a campground with rowdy groups of campers in the cabins. Loved the location by the beach but the view from our ground floor patio (116 A )was obscured by undergrowth. The plumbing was very noisy, we were woken at 5am...

I have always loved Tighnamara, and prefer staying in the spa bungalows, as they are more updated. The lodge rooms on the ocean are VERY dated, so I find them too expensive for what you get. The Grotto Spa is amazing, and a must-visit with your girlfriends! Don't forget to do the endless tapas while you're there. Perhaps just skip...

Spent the weekend with my fiancé. Very clean, peaceful and relaxing. Had a beautiful view of the ocean from our room. The spa experience was amazing! Highly recommended. We will be going back for sure.

We loved our room as soon as we walked into it and we didn't even have an ocean view. There were beautiful trees all around. The interior looked and felt like a cabin. We walked to the beach a couple times on this one night stay to take in the tide pools and far out beach walk. A five minute...
