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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Played here with a friend as was told it was good course and was not disappointed. The course was beautifully maintained & the facilities afterwards were outstanding. Would recommend playing this course to any golfer as it had some nice challenging holes along the way but wasn’t too hard

Superb location for a family wedding - fantastic service from friendly staff who went above and beyond. A getaway-from-it-all feeling to the hotel. Very well located for touring the local area and quick access to Cork and beyond. Lots of places in the hotel to relax - garden is gorgeous and there are plenty of walks available within the grounds. We had a large group and there was something for everyone.

We stayed in three five star hotels over the last two weeks in Ireland, and by far, Fota Island Resort was our best experience. There were so many tiny touches that made our stay perfect. From arriving to our room with a congratulations plate for us, to a beautiful teddy for our son. The food was amazing, especially our tasting menu in the Cove when we had a babysitter. The baby chair was always clean, the staff were so helpful...we could go on...but go and find our for yourself. We'll be back!

Excellent hotel, with excellent staff. Super friendly and highly professional. It is definitely worth the stay. The cuisine in both restaurants is excellent and a special attention is given to the younger ones. Bravo to the whole staff.

Fantastic hotel with great service from staff! The spa was amazing and the treatments were so relaxing! The normal pool was a lovely temperature too. The breakfast is unreal you would stay here just for that alone. The bathroom in room was stylish and a great shower.

We stayed in the big lodges for a long weekend. They where nothing short of amazing. Spotless clean, big comfy beds, two sitting rooms, kitchen was well equipped. Could not fault the lodge in any way there was plenty of room for everyone. My only issue was we were not allowed to check in until 5pm we thought it was 4pm and usually its 3pm anywhere else we have stayed so that was very dissapointing to wait after a really long drive with young children. Staff where very kind at trying to sort this out for us I must say. Check out is 10am!!! Super early and thats usually 12 anywhere else we have been so to get up and everyone ready and gone by 10 with a long drive ahead would just put me off doing it again. Our phones were ringing before half 10 when we were packing up the car to go so there was no messing about to get us out. They are in no way cheap either so value for money was lost there. That is the only fault, the rest of our stay was beautiful, the pool was wonderful, staff are so attentive in the hotel and nothing is too much trouble. Food was lovely we ate there twice and had no issues at all. Thanks for a really wonderful weekend making fantastic memories.

The hotel staff were very attentive and the food was beautiful at the hotel. We enjoyed the gardens, spa and pool on our stay. We were a little disappointed by the family room as there was no storage and space was very limited. It didn't compare to other family rooms we have stayed in. Overall, it was a nice stay but we would have a think about the rooms.
