Came to Tigh-Na Mara to escape the city and what a relaxing vacation it was! Took full advantage of the in-room jacuzzi tub and the next door Grotto Spa. Will be back again soon! And will try out the Tapas Grill too!

My first time ever for a Spa Experience and it was the best and I can see why, you were voted Canada's number One spa in 2015. I would come again and again. The employees were tranquil, helpful and extremely pleasant. I mark this a 10 out of 10 experience.

The conference centre staff were excellent, the food was delicious and plentiful, and the conference rooms and set up were perfect. The accommodations were fine except for a few problems with cleanliness. What a great setting for a meeting of over 100 people from all over North America to enjoy. We lucked out with the weather, and really enjoyed our... More

We absolutely love this resort, and have been here numerous times throughout the years. However, it would have been nice to have been told prior to check in that there would be constant construction noise. The banging and saws usually start around 8am but we have been woken up at 7:30am now as well. The noise continues until 6 or... More

Great accommodations there was 13 of us and we were all close by as well as close to the amenities. Truly enjoyed our stay. Activities for all ages and the site was great for independent use for our teens and preteens to enjoy on their own.

The place accommodation was good JUST very very dark. Even with every light on in the place I felt like we were in a cave. I found all of the staff to be pleasant which was much appreciated. Our dinner at Cedars was good.

My husband and I went for the weekend to this resort. I stayed in the tesort some years ago. My general impresion is that it has deterioreted. The room was nice but the bed was soft. The quality of food at the bar and coffee shop was terrible. It needs many improvements.
