We had such an amazing stay at abaton island, the hotel is beautiful, the restaurants are incredible and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. If we have one tini tiny complaint it would be that the steak restaurant on site seems to restrict what you can buy, we went 3 times as really wanted a particular cut and on each time we went they said it was out of stock and the same cut of meet each time was the only one available , on the 3rd attempt we made it a little more clear of our disappointment as we booked the opening time reservation to make sure we could have it and it was the same story. Then the waitress went to the kitchen and said it was actually available. I’m not sure the reason for this maybe for stock control or something but it was a little frustrating , but we did end up finally being able to order and it didn’t disappoint. Just a shame we had to try 3times to get what we wanted … but other than that honestly can’t recommend this place enough.

Heaven!!! This hotel was pure luxury, the pool was beautiful, food amazing. A very romantic place.. not really for families and more for couples.. Would recommend, on the beach and resort not too big. Rooms are beautiful! Only negative would be about the reception staff, they gave us very confusing Information about where and when to get the tests, I also added someone to my booking and extended my stay over the phone however the reception staff didn’t have any record of these conversations and nothing had been actioned Xxx

The hotel is stunning and the spa treatments are amazing. The hotels cleaning service could be better, there was a lack of attention to detail. We only stayed for two nights, so the limited cuisines options didn't bother us. We enjoyed the breakfast buffer, but the coffee was not great. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Abaton.

Amazing facilities, pool, rooms and views. Excellent atmosphere and environment. A true luxurious experience but still Need some improvement in the staff at the reception in order for them to behave as a 5 star hotel. No information provided on the area, things to do or nearby interesting spots. The restaurant staff go beyond to make the experience enjoyable and are very nice and friendly but look very tired as they have long journey of work.
