Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a voucher for the Essence Spa in the Sanovitae Health and Fitness Club, part of the Clarion Hotel. I was a bit unsure if I was in the right spot because it felt like I had arrived at the gym! However, the staff on duty was very helpful and showed me what I needed and where everything was. Their "security" was quite tight, so it made me wonder if there had been problems with things being stolen. They gave me a padlock for my locker, and there was a door code to get in and out of the changing rooms. All the facilities worked and were good- jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. The sauna wasn't very hot, but the steam room was! I did notice quite a few points that could really use maintenance: black mould on the tiles behind the jacuzzi, paint/plaster coming off the ceiling above the pool, cracks in the ceiling, the metal light fittings in the ceiling were all rusted. They are small things that make the overall look bad, but they should be easy to fix. The spa was very nice and comfortable, but they had no toilet facilities. You had to go out of the spa, across the corridor and into leisure facilities. Again, not a big deal, but something relatively easy to fix for the overall feel of the place. I really enjoyed the hydrotherapy bath, massage, facial and getting my nails done. The staff were friendly and good at what they did. I would probably go back to the spa, but the leisure centre could use some work!

On the day we were signed up by Bruce, he recommended getting a fitness assessment. Two days later, I was having a body composition scan with a state of the art Tanita machine at the beginning of an insightful and comprehensive fitness assessment by the enthusiastic and knowledgeable personal trainer - Adrian.

Having had many fitness assessments in other gyms, I could tell Adrian knew his stuff, and I learnt some really good theory about how roller stretching works....and a new technique with a medicine ball which has proven to be really effective.

Im very pleased so far with this reasonably priced gym in the heart of Cork!

Been a member of Sanovitae Cork for years! Has been upgraded last year and really improved its facilities. It's got everything you need equipment wise and classes are always booming! Great gym for beginners to seasoned athletes. It's a nice gym with a great family of staff who are extremely friendly and willing to help you with your goals no matter how big or small. The members here are also great and really helpful to talk to. Has a brilliant location for anyone working in town like myself with easy accessible opening hours til late every night 😊

Staff is very friendly, but that is normal in Ireland!
The gym is OK and the pool is nice, 18 m. and generally well maintained.
Locker rooms could be improved in terms of cleanliness, often they are not up to standards, as well there are strange smells either in the toilets or in the pool area itself.
Overall one of the best choices in Cork and it opens at 6:30AM, which is early for Irish culture.

I'm a member here and I cannot recommend this place enough. The new set up is amazing and they did a brilliant job in making it what it is now. The new machines are great to use and are really well maintained and clean! That goes for the whole health club. I'm really satisfied with the service I get there and the staff are really nice and easy to approach. Tony, who is the manager is great and really knows his stuff about health and fitness and how to keep members Happy and provide what they need. I can't recommend it enough. If you're in the city, check them out!

I called in to train here with my daughter on Sunday and it was very good for a hotel gym. It is well equipped and busy so that's a good sign. It's medium sized but none the less everything you need for a good training session is there. I enjoyed it and the staff member David was very helpful.
