    the fact that the outside furniture was falling apart, and some of the main lights didn't work.

  • Older travelers

    The location at Nelly bay was very good, near restaurants,, supermarket, bus and ferry. The appartment was very spacy and comfortable.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    It was was close to the ferry and the islands public transport, and within walking distance to good restaraunts.

    overall it was noisy, both with other resident's and unfortunately our apartment was next to the security gate and it banged all through the night.

  • Group of friends

    Location, terrific. Staff helpful and co-operative. Nice bright apartment. However.. I think that for a resort costing approx $250.00 per day, we would have ........1.received at least two soaps, shower and basin, in our "starter pack. 2. Have had matching cutlery, and a cutlery drawer that wasn't damaged. Matching crockery, and full sets of each size, only two Dinner plates, which were not Villeroy and Bosch. Basic instructions re T.V./Austar, would have been helpful Perhaps recent change of Management, has something to do with these complaints.

    The location of the apartments is terrific. The Apartment's design very functional. Great access from the Ferry. Close to Local Bus Stop. Car Hire, Supermarket.

    The location and the convernience to everything.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    convenient, clean, value for money.

    Not made clear on website that there were no eating facilities and (or that advertised breakfast option was a pre prepared packet of items). Housekeeping service lacking in details i.e. bath had no plug, only one Mug in kitchen ( from a set of 4- other 3 in main office we found out latter). Air conditioning failed on first night and we had to move rooms the next day- no-one ever apologised at all for the inconvenience this incurred to our short 3 day stay- we were just told another room was available.This room was outside the main pool and hence lacked privacy. An upgrade rather than a downgrade might have been more appropriate.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Location is excellent, views are amazing. Beside ferry, shops and restaurants.

    Lots of often small things; Main gate zapper did not work - needed a new battery. Apartment had a smell on entry - from dishwasher. One roll of toilet paper between 2 toilets. Arrived late at night, some milk (long life)would have been great for tea / coffee. One bedside lamp had no bulb.

  • Older travelers

    The view and room setup.

    No milk for coffee in fridge. Floor wet from mopping when we checked in.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The view.

    Maintenance of the unit - missing light bulb on bedside table in main bedroom; blind in main bedroom broken. Limited toiletries supplied eg. one bar of soap; two conditioners given instead of one shampoo and one conditioner. For the price, perhaps a complimentary bottle of wine, candles and matches and free beach towels supplied. We found a lack of privacy on the balcony and could hear conversations in all units surrounding. In the evening a lot of noise in the complex with slamming doors, children running around. We would recommend the apartments for the view. We are returning to the island over Christmas and have chosen a house on the beach with more privacy.

  • Group of friends

    The Location Room size

    The service - our television was not working and we tried to contact reception and no one answered, we tried multiple times within a 1 hour block Our room was dirty - kitchen bench wasn't wiped down, toiletries and hair from the last people were left in the bathroom

  • Single

    The apartment was huge and the view was spectacular.

    The could use a couple of extra cafes in the area.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The view from our room was amazing and the facilities provided in room (magazines, kitchen utensiles etc) were great.

    The attitude of the reception woman! We arrived on the 12.15 ferry and went to check in and was told in a rather aggressive manner that "check in is 2pm - that is global!!!!!!". She advised us to go away and she would phone when the room was ready for us to check into. We then decided to go over to Horseshoe Bay to the jetskis and by the time we had finished there, our room would be ready. We let her know our plans and asked that when our room was ready, coud our bags be taken there. She said "we are not a hotel you know!!!" Very poor!!!! I would not rebook at your hotel again, purely because of her dreadful attitude.

    lovely apartment, everything i needed for my stay, felt safe and secure great location next to the ferry and the bus to other parts of the island no problems at all

    The flat was well equipped

    Staff gave us the wrong time for one of the excursions which wasted one of our days.

    I was really disappointed in the fact we didnt get a spa room although that is what I paid for
