I booked the Afternoon Indulgence as a treat for myself (23rd Nov) and the whole experience from Spa to Amber Lounge was just perfect! The staff were great, particularly Anna who gave me my wonderful back and shoulder massage and the manageress in the Amber Lounge who was so friendly and attentive. The spa facilities are really good, there are... More

Visited with friends for a girlie afternoon. Not the most efficient reception. It was our first visit but instead of a tour of the facilities we were simply told "first door on the left". Changing area is quite small but luckily it was not too busy. Pool & jacuzzi area was lovely but very few loungers available for relaxing. Really... More

We visited the spa on Saturday morning, there was 7 of us in total. All staff are lovely and we were all brought in for treatments at the same time so was great to all be out to enjoy the spa facilities together. Beautiful place and very welcoming and helpful staff.

The thermal suite is a little disjointed. It was full when we arrived and there were no beds available at the thermal pool either.

Very disappointed with treatments I received in the beauty rooms. Definitely not worth the money and I am surprised this hotel is still 5 star. Plenty more gorgeous spas in Cork,Wont be returning.

Really disappointing from start to finish. We went to the Fota Spa for a girls day which we try to do every month and have been to a few spas around cork and county. We arrived to a beautiful looking hotel (I had never been down there before despite living ten minutes away) The spa reception was very well laid... More

Went just for treatments with a friend. The treatment rooms are lovely and the relaxation room afterwards was fantastic. My only negative is that the hotel do a lot of childrens swimming classes so the changing rooms were very busy at the time we were there.

Myself and two friends arrived to Foto Island on Sunday 3rd July. I have to say this has been a most amazing and enjoyable experience from the onset. We went for the day package . At e65 , this was well worth it for a 5 star hotel. This included 1 treatment, full use of spa facilities and afternoon tea.... More

Had a great day, from start to finish.! Facilities were fantastic... the mosaic chairs in the relaxation room are unreal... we upgraded the spa afternoon tea and was well worth it... thinking about the next visit
