6/10 Good

Good resort, dinner was a big disappointment.
The resort itself is good and breakfast is great. Dinner was the downside here. There are a couple of restaurants in the hotel, but they are just not that good, and also super expensive compared to the restaurants in the city center.

Excellent Service
Excellent visit to the Abaton Hotel. Service second to none, nothing was ever too much trouble. hotel very clean. and the food was fine dining even round the pool. only criticism is that rooms with a hot tub have no view what so ever, all you get to look at is a painted wall. so please bear this in mind if you book one.

Beautiful property and views. Staff a bit slow and needs to adjust for a 5 star quality but incredible stay overall. Can imagine even better when music is allowed! Gorgeous set up for beach chairs and ocean access.

8/10 Very good

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.
