Getting old, cabins in dire need of refresh. Everything wood outside is rotten or in need of a coat of paint. Restaurant was just average and prices where not. Location is beautiful, beach is awesome!

Whenever we stay in the area our choice has always been Tigh Na Mara. The resort is excellent as is the food and the service. The beach is close and the views are breath taking. The resort was very full so make reservations for the restaurant. They are doing a renovation update but it did not bother us in anyway...

I stayed in a cabin on "The Grotto" side of the resort. It has a lovely little kitchen, propane fireplace, Jacuzzi tub. Very well maintained. Because it's surrounded by trees, there isn't a lot of sunlight getting in and the deck out back is totally shaded, but I got used to it. They are log cabins. It's a 5 -10...

We stayed in a spa bungalow and it was a nice space. The tiny kitchen was perfect for breakfast and we even did a dinner of prawns, scallops and crab one evening. The room was looking a bit tired though. It's a bit of a walk to the beach but right near the spa. Overall a good place to stay.

Staff were friendly and courteous, and the masseurs were great. Also the beach was great when the tide was out. The Cedars restaurant was very good and had options for people with allergies or other food needs.

This place is tired and unkept....in need of a good scrubbing or dusting...not so much in our room but the overall property. We were there overnight on a glorious afternoon and evening in June and headed to the beach to find no chairs...no amenities whatsoever! Imagine...this beautiful beach and they have provided you with nothing.....no snacks, no drinks, no chairs....NOTHING!!!...

We stayed for one night in an ocean view suite. The room amenities, layout, comfortable mattress and access to the vehicle were fantastic. I can't recommend this place enough! The front desk staff were great to deal with. The grounds and layout of the property were great.

Absolutely horrible experience. Will NEVER stay here again, and I live on Vancouver Island!! We booked a weekend package including spa treatments, meals, and more. The first night, my 4 year daughter was horribly ill. Up all night vomittiing, so of course we all were up. Just to be clear, I do not blame Tigh-Na-Mara in any way for this;...

This is about the fifth time I've been to Tigh-Na-Mara. My mother had been there before and loved it there so I thought it would be a treat to go there for her birthday. We arrived quite early and our room was ready so we were checked in right away. We were in an oceanview suite on the main floor...

We were a party of 6. The Tigh Na Mara was once a place of higher standards and a dress code of sorts. We were very disappointed how casually people were dressed with Bermuda shorts and flip flops and hooded sweatshirts, especially when we had all made a concerted effort for nice clothing Service was slow. Main entree's were very...
