Thinking of booking princess house next year. Looks great on the website but a bit of insider knowledge would be great. How far is it to the nearest beach/town? Are there bars on the way or not? Is it noisy. We would be going in August.

Any info gratefully received.

Cheers.

Hi

Princess House is on the road coming away from the airport (it's situated near the junction of the only main road which runs from one end of the island to the other). It,s about a 10 minute walk into town where you will find all the bars/tavernas you would require. You could also go down the back lanes and come out on club strip where you will find a number of tavernas overlooking the sea. There are no beaches close by, the nearest being quite a walk away at the end of the runway. You would either take the bus, the water taxi or hire a car/scooter to get to other beaches. We stay in a hotel on the same road but we usually go in June and have never had any problem with noise. We are going in a weeks time but don't know whether we will hear anything from the clubs. I am sure someone on the forum will give you the answer you seek regarding the noise. We haven' t stayed at this accommodation but it does have good reviews and it looks very nice.

Hi. We stayed at Princess House May/June this year and loved it,the owners cannot do enough for you,we would definatly go back there,did only take about 5 mins to get in town,there was no noise then from the bars as they were still tarting them up.I would not like to go July August as that is when you get all the loud music.

Have noticed on Thomson web site for next year that the prices at the moment are very expensive for self catering I would not pay that,just hope the prices come down a bit,

You don't need any bars that near as I said the town is only a stride away,great supermarket near by the biggest in the town.There is a bus stop just around the corner that takes you to all the best beaches we loved the bus ride the views are spectacular,when we were there the buses were every 20mins.
