We just got back from a week-long stay in Pingouinvillas @ Blue Bay. It was a great experience from start to finish. Sarif was extremely helpful from day one, with the enquiries I made before booking, and all the way up to our date of travel.
We were picked up at the airport, and then Sarif helped us with our currency exchange, grocery shopping, and buying a local sim.
The apartment has everything you need for a week-long stay - the rooms are large, well-lit, and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully-equipped, and well-maintained. Our favourite area was the patio leading out from the drawing room, where we enjoyed our morning coffee while listening to birdsong... lovely! Free wi-fi is icing on the cake!
The only downside is that it is far from the nearest supermarket (not walkable distance, but needn't be a problem if you plan your shopping well), and if you have planned most of your activities in the North of the island (which we hadn't), then you have to spend an hour and a half getting there!
Tip: Certainly get him to book a cab for you wherever you need to go - very comfortable vehicle and competitive rates!
