Customer Reviews

We love nothing more than hearing from our customers and we always invite them to leave feedback on their holiday experience with us once they’ve returned home. This feedback is often as helpful to us as it is to other customers who visit our website as it allows us to identify what works well and if we can improve upon any aspects of our service - and it’s also great just to hear that they’ve had a lovely time on their holiday!

To collect our customers’ feedback, we have teamed up with an independent review platform called Feefo, a company who provide an average Star Rating and an Award Scheme aimed at celebrating high levels of customer service.

We are delighted to have received a Gold Trusted Merchant Award from Feefo in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Flat 31 Clifton Court - August 2018

Service rating: “Really enjoyable holiday. Lovely apartment with fantastic views of the beach and sea. Excellent location where you can see shooting stars on clear nights.

Only annoyance was the swimming pool was closed on the wettest day of our holiday (due to a broken tile on the poolside). However it was fixed quickly and pool was back open on Monday. (Arrived Friday). We then had other plans, one day I was ill and when I finally got to the pool we were having a lovely time when a man walked in and announced the pool would be closed doe 40 minutes whilst he cleaned it ( no warning or apologies). It would have been better to have a sign on the door or to to be notified in advance of pool closures for cleaning. I understand this has to be done but to be be turfed out with no warning, especially when you have children is really not fair. This left a resentment in an otherwise lovely experience.”
