We recently stayed at these apartments for a second time and again found them to be very good value. The units are clean, well equipped and offer great views of the Strand. Pool is spotlessly clean and pleasant to use. Secure undercover parking is great. The biggest plus is the central location to the Strand and nearby cafes, and reasonable... More

The units are spacious and in a great location close to supermarket, strand and plenty of food. We stayed for a week and did not have any problems. I agree it would be nice to have BBQ facilities and be able to adjust the air conditioner but we just opened the windows and turned the fan on. I would stay... More

Having stayed here many times I would always return the units are very clean and central to most things. There is a bit of noise from unit doors closing when guests leave units but otherwise its quiet.Beautiful sea views from balconies and security is very good.Just a walk over the hill to down town or closer still is the walk...

We stayed one night. Overall everything was OK, with one very annoying thing which was that management did not allow guests to adjust the airconditioning temperature it is pre-set by them at reception and you have no control. You have to contact them if you need any temperature adjustment, which cannot be done when they are not there. We were... More

Very happy to have chosen Ocean Breeze for our weeklong stay in July. As previous reviewers have commented, the studio apartments are spacious and well appointed with everything needed at hand. We were lucky enough to be on the top floor And the balcony and view were amazing. The only negative is that there are no barbecues provided and its... More

we stayed at ocean breeze and thoroughly enjoyed the very large, well furnished studio. we were on the ground floor but did have a view of the Strand and easy access to it via garden gate. parking secure and undercover. only commment would be that the walls are thin and sounds carried from adjacent apartments (one with an unhappy toddler)....

We booked a 1-bedroom apartment and were pleasantly surprised with our room on arrival. We were given very clear after-hours check-in instructions and were allocated a top floor unit with great ocean views (I'd requested an upper level room if available). It was so relaxing and pleasant to sit on the spacious balcony for breakfast each morning and watch all... More

nice units, excellent location with shops, pubs and eateries so close. undercover parking with great security and well as a lovely swimming pool ideal for the kids as swimming at the beaches is not advised.Staff were very friendly and helpful. highly recommended and we will return to stay.

Nice place, good location. Very clean and all required amenities but don't bother asking for a room on a higher floor. Booked 10 weeks in advance and asked for a high floor but when rang a week before stay was told our room was on ground floor. When I said I'd asked for a high floor they said they'd see... More
