The sixth stay at The Abama

Posted 08-May-2017
Pros: Recognising a returning customer. Great rooms. Peaceful. Areas for families, areas for Adults Only
Cons: The service at night from restaurants to room / hotel. Also used to bring around pool, complimentary fruit drinks and water spray
Location: The location is wonderful. Isolated, peaceful. No need to go anywhere else.
This is the 6th time I have stayed at The Abama. They recognise me as a returning guest and very kindly upgrade me and my friends. I love the place. Its peaceful, relaxing, provides areas for Adults Only as well as a enormous family area and pool. Breakfast at El Mirador is one of my highlights. My wife says the Spa is excellent and the golf course is stunning. The restaurants provide a variety of different cuisines, all a bit pricey, but you are staying in a %Star resort. One thing I would say is the bill from MB, the 2 Michelin Star restaurant was nearly double what I was paying 5 years ago and a good 30% up on last year. Although the food is stunning, its not varied enough from last time, same tricks and surprises, and I would no longer say to a friend, you have to go. I think it is now just too pricey.

Nice hotel with excellent staff

Posted 06-Mar-2017
Pros: The hotel is beautiful, with many facilities. The staff are all excellent and very attentive. The hotel was also good at providing adults only areas.
Cons: There is not much that could be improved with this hotel. It is very well managed, clean and the staff are really excellent and a credit to the hotel.
Location: There is very little to do in the immediate area which means that most guests dine in the hotel.
We generally enjoyed our stay at the Ritz-Carlton in Abama. The hotel is very big and it does take a day or so to get acquainted with all the facilities. We stayed in a villa and required a buggy to get to and from reception. There is a nearby village but very little in the way of good restaurants. This means that you are pretty much required to eat and drink in the hotel which has a variety of restaurants, although they are quite expensive. The first few days were great with excellent service from all the staff. However, half way through our stay there were about 200 guests who arrived for an Indian wedding. The hotel caters for these weddings on a regular basis apparently and the ceremony lasts about 3 days. The reason I mention this is that parts of the hotel were not available to other guests as certain areas were reserved for the wedding party. The standard of service in the hotel also suffered. We feel that guests should we warned when booking that large weddings may be held and that certain amenities at the hotel will be closed and unavailable to them.

Lovely complex with its own beach

Posted 28-Dec-2016
Pros: Spa, beach, beds, ambiance
Location: Golf tennis swimming beach
This is my family's second stay at the hotel over the Christmas period. The rooms are very comfortable and the quality of the food at all the restaurants are a high standard. Sadly this is let down by a slow service everywhere other than the on site Michelin star restaurant which was fantastic but expensive. Children's facilities at the hotel are first class. As was the lovely spa, beds were super comfortable. ur stay was cut short by a sudden death in the family and the hotel staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful to us. We will be back.

Excellent hotel with superb amenities

Posted 28-Aug-2016
We love staying at Ritz-Carlton hotels and this one did not let us down. As a couple we frequented the adult only pool which was refreshing! Excellent buffet breakfast, huge room, good coffee, fabulous spa, decent gym and huge grounds. We rented a car for our trip which is definitely recommend.

This is not 5 star

Posted 11-Apr-2016
This hotel is meant to be a five star hotel however there is no way this is five star. The hotel staff were nice in general, however we were there with a 9 year old child, so they checked them into a room which was for adults only so they had to move, why did they check them in when they even said we will get an extra bed for the child!!! The pool area was not washed down at night time and the service around the pool for drinks and food was a lottery. What a joke. On the last day we had our breakfast table set and had cups with no saucers, classy joint - NOT. For what you get this is extortion. DONT GO
