The location of the property was great and the pool and spa at the premise was excellent. The room we had was relatively modern but the furniture was a little rundown. There seemed to be a bit of a problem with ants in our apartment, they were everywhere (bathroom/kitchen/ bedroom) even with all of our food put away. This was quite annoying. Apart from that the property was great and the pool was a big hit with our children!

My family loved our stay here. Our apartment was modern and sparkling clean, and the property is in a great location right next to an Irish pub and a fantastic kids playground. Staff very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay again.

Perfect location right across the road from the harbour / beach. Great for kids with a playground across the road. Having a washing machine was an excellent bonus. Walking distance to shops, takeaways, restaurants. Irish pub & 2 cafes next door. Excellent friendly service

The place was fine if you smoke but we were non smokers and couldn’t have the balcony door/windows open much because of others smoking outside

Nice Apartment in great location

Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable managers
Cons: Free Wi-Fi .... it’s the new millennium ?
Location: Restaurant within complex amazing. Water across the road. Main shopping hub 3 minutes walk. Boat tours to Cathederal Cove depart within 3 min walk.
Friendly staff; great location; clean apartments with washer (no dryer); bit crowded with furniture; great pool; no Air Con so it was very humid and you have to pay for Wi-Fi - this in today’s IT world is a bit backwards in my opinion ? Still more positives than negatives and if you can cope with no AC it’s a winner ...... and the restaurant within the complex (although not associated with the apartment complex) is a must - great steak and seafood / service :-)
