Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldballyclarians a lovely view from our balcony
we had a great time here . breakfast was great . the rooms were modern and comfortable . we enjoyed the heated pool and happy hour drinks at 6 pm each evening.
our electricity stopped working one morning when the ceiling fan in the bathroom blew but this was fixed very promptly and the hotel contacted us when we got home to say they will look after us if we plan to return and apologised for the inconvenience of the electricity.
we would like to return again at the end of october this year. we love this hotel!

Overall a great stay. The hotel is perfectly located beside an excellent beach. The terrace area and pool are well positioned and excellent for sunbathing.We had a refurbished room with small balcony overlooking the beach. The room was modern with all mod cons.
Staff were friendly and understood our needs. Breakfast was good but i have had better in other Holiday Inn hotels. As always way over priced. We ate a couple of times at a nearby restaurant and it was half the price. The bar was also double the prices of other establishments within 100 mtrs of the hotel. Saga Guests took over certain area's at times but they were civilised and polite.
the only complaint i had was the noise at night. It would be a good idea to put dampers on the doors as every person that returned to their rooms late in the evening let the door go behind them and bang, it echoed along the whole floor. It was really annoying after a couple of nights. Also we were close to the lift and people had a habit of stepping out and then wishing all their friends good night or discussing the following days plans. They should put a sign in the lift requesting guests to consider other guests after 11pm and politely keep noise to a minimum
overall we had a great stay and I will be glad to return later in the year

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tokis Delightful hotel at the edge of Atlantic ocean
Beautifulful experience. Home away. Clean rooms plus the lovely staffs made my stay enjoyable. However I cannot see any special treatment for the Priority Members.
The only downside is the food needs improvement, for instance there was not any Prawns , lobsters fresh fishes or Shrimps in the Menus throughout my three days stay despite the great location of the hotel by the sea.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary207 Very relaxing and a great location
Had a great time, the only thing I can complain about is the reception had us down to leave a day earlier than we had booked.
This resulted in us being asked to pay for breakfast at our table by a waiter demanding 11 euros each, I still don't know what the problem was as the reception staff didn't keep us informed of any updates and when I asked 8 hours later they replied we have not had any feed back from England.
This spoiled a perfect stay at the Holiday Inn.
Ps. Don't let this put anybody off going as I am sure this was a one off, just thought it could of been delt with more professionally.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phil19 Excellent break
In every way this was an excellent hotel except for the gym. The reception staff were very helpfull and also the restauarant staff. The gym is limited and the multi gym was not working correctly. I reported this twice, but nothing was done about it or even mentioned.

Excellent position right on sea front, large room, comfortable beds and a sea view. Very good buffet breakfast, evening buffet meal not great but not bad either. Nice bar area overlooking beach. Heated pool and large sun terraces. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Would recommend
