We had ten people in our group and we booked three apartments, all apartments were different, spacious, well fitted out, ticked all the boxes for a holiday on the coast. The beds were comfortable and clean. Ling and Hong were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We loved the pool and the spa. The location to the beach was very convenient.... More

Unit could have been cleaner. Found clumps of hair around the carpet and food left in a cupboard. Well equipped kitchen. Enjoyed the tennis court, pool and spa.... More

Literally a penthouse on every floor. Pristine decore, clean and spacious. 180 degree views and within walking distance to pretty much everything. On the beaches doorstep.....what more could you ask for. Old fashioned kind hearted service made our stay even more so memorable. Thank you Carol and Nick you were amazing!!!

Our stay at The Penthouses was just perfect. From the initial contact in making the booking with Carol, right through to our departure, the service she provided was faultless. She was always available to provide local advice & assist us with any requests, with a happy, calm, considerate and efficient manner. The location was great, a 15min walk to the... More

The Penthouse Apartments experience was outstanding. Our 3 bedroom apartment was extremely large, with really good facilities. 2 balconies faced directly onto the beach. There was plenty to do with a swimming pool, spa, games room & the beach all together on the property.
