Stayed 3 nights on top level in room 3B, 3 bedroom apartment with seaviews. Everything you need plus. Pool was great for laps followed by hot spa bath, even though we stayed in winter the Mount put on some great weather for us. Host lady was very welcoming and made a us feel very comfortable. Would definitely stay again without... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Belle Mer Apartments in room 3B. My husband and I loved the location. Close to Bars and Restaurants but far enough away for peace and quiet. Views of Ocean are to die for. Apartment has absolutely everything one needs. Beautiful interior, well laid out. Everything is clean, and very comfy bed. Huge bathroom... More

My daughter and her husband stayed here for four nights recently and were very disappointed in the attitude of some of the staff. They had expected an upmarket apartment but found the spa did not work and there was no TV in the bedroom. Sea view was minium. Hardly luxurious.Aftersome discussion with management they received an upgrade which did help... More

With a range of apartments to choose from it is good to have stayed at belle mer. Located a bit away from the cluster of accommodation near the surf club and mountain yet only a short walk to town. This places it favorably we felt. Our room one bed with a peek of the sea. Quiet and extremely well appointed.... More

Belle Mer's location is fantastic - great views over the beach to the Mount, and just a short walk into the main street. However, at $500 a night for the 3-br penthouse it's not cheap - and we think there are a few little things the managers could do to help make the experience match the price. We found it... More

Stayed at Belle Mer Apartments for three nights. Wish it could have been longer. The apartment was large and very clean. Probably the only fault we could find is that I didn't know that it had bunk beds in one room and as we are all adults it was a little hard. Still probably my fault I should have asked... More

My hubby was taking part in the sand to surf ocean swim, so these appartments were chosen because of their location. We stayed in a one bed apartment, very nice, really spacious. Had a dip in the pool, lovely and warm especially after a dip in the sea. My only regret was that we didn't book a two night stay.... More

Stayed at the Belle Mer Apartments over the weekend and were very pleased with the 2 bedroom apartment that we stayed in. Apartment beautiful and clean, well equipped kitchen and big bathroom.

Although the reservation process via the visitors bureau for our party of 18 proved precarious -- emails lost etc -- and needed a lot of repeat communication and phone calls, the three apartments were superbly equipped for families and very well maintained. Pricey, but the beach front location is just superb and the pubs and cafes around the corner do... More

We stayed in apartment 2C for a week or so, and were very pleased with the space, the well-equipped kitchen, and the big bathroom. The manager, Mike, was very helpful, and gave us lots of info about the area. The view over the sea was lovely, and the apartment block well situated. We paid for wifi, and the connection speed...
