My family stayed at Getaway for two nights. Service: Overall pretty good, the front desk was very friendly and told us a lot about good spots to eat. Also allowed us an extra hour to checkout (normally 10 am, but we pushed it to 11am) because our flight was a bit later. Room/apartment: Clean, very spacious. Has washing machine and... More

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you found check-in to your satisfaction Our apartments are cleaned about every 4-5 days (average stay time) floors are mopped each and every time, so to suggest they have never been cleaned is unreasonable. The porta-cots we hire out have a firm base and we provide an egg shell topper to... More

Very nice place,the only thing was when first arriving i could figure out how to get into the car park as the directions dont explain that it at the begining of the driveway... love the blue lights on the pool and spa (makes em look really cool), close to shops and the town centre...

There were lots of ants around the kitchen and we had to wear flip flops because the floor was very sticky. All the plates bowls and cups were very greasy and dirty because they expect you to clean and put away dishes. Didn't seem like the previous guests followed

This is a really friendly place to stay. We had a two bedroom townhouse apartment. The room was spotlessly clean, plenty of room, nice to have two separate en suites, one for each bedroom. Nice balcony to sit and soak up the sunshine on. Fully equipped kitchen, everything you could need. There is a good size pool and spa bath... More

Travelling with another couple, we needed 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, including a large shower alcove. Due to my wife's limited mobility we chose a ground floor apartment with a balcony looking out over the crystal clear pool. Everything was exceptional - the friendly knowledgeable staff - the spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining and lounge areas - the comfortable lounge... More

Our stay was for 5 days, 2 Bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. Fully self contained. We had a king bed which was lovely. Kids loved the pool. Value for money. 10 min walk to Esplanade. Lady at check in was nice and helpful. We would come back.

We spent a week in a two storey townhouse which was very clean and well presented. The accommodation was fantastic - both bedrooms had ensuites which was great. The beds were extremely comfortable! Downstairs there was a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, and a laundry with washer and dryer. The pool area was never busy and was very refreshing after... More

We had 2 apartments next door to each other last month. They were great, the staff were very helpful and the location is good. Would definately recommend them. The instructions for getting keys and where shops are located were very clear, also the trips that were booked for us were great.
