We visited for a short two-night break (16th/17th July 2022). We had a very friendly greeting on arrival and our Ocean View room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was large, the floor could have been cleaner. More thought should have been given to the layout. Why, at these prices, have you got to climb into the bath to have a shower. The bathroom was large enough to accommodate a nice walk-in shower. There was nowhere convenient to hang a towel, not even the hand towel. Very poor.
Our meal on Saturday night was excellent – we had the ‘special’ fish for starter and mains and it was pleasantly served in a reasonable time by the staff. Sunday night was a completely different matter. We waited far too long to be asked for our order and the starter, when it eventually came (one hour after our reserved time), was simply not value for money. One expensive scallop chopped up and overwhelmed by the tabasco dressing. We also waited too long for our main course of lamb rump and when it came it was cold, tough and chewy. It was allegedly served with ratatouille but which resembled a teaspoon of tomato paste. This meal at these prices was simply not good enough. We expressed our disappointment, but apart from an apology, no recompense was offered.
In conclusion we felt that Gara Rock was a good, but difficult to access, location but at the high prices charged it is underwhelming and we will be in no hurry to return.
