Pretty nice 3 bedroom apartment
Close to shops and beach.
The only thing was disappointing was there's no BBQ only by rent for the day . The other thing was beach had dead birds everywhere and when we got back to the apartment to take a dip in the pool/ spa , spa was very dirty and the filters were switched off for some reason very disappointing ,
Also found pretty upsetting in regards to fan noise in the bathrooms was a shocker you could hear them working for an hour after you go to bed through the rooms . But sandycove apartment was very big plenty room for large family's

The apartment was very nice and big, well equipped but we were on Level 1 with absolutely no view which was disappointing as all the pictures promote the view. It is very close to everything and well maintained. The pool area is small but wasn't crowded. The ensuite shower did require constant mopping up.

Our apartment was huge and had very modern decor with all amenities including latest coffee pod machine. We had a large L shaped balcony with water views in two directions around a building in front. It was close to the water and to shops. The pool area was disappointing. Very small with only 4 loungers for 48 units. Not a problem yesterday as the pool was icy and the spa wasn't working. I think we were just unlucky to be there when it wasn't functioning. The gym has a treadmill, a bike, a weights machine with multiple activities and a broken Abs-type machine. No written information in the apartment about the amenities, ( couldn't work the spa bath), or rules or the local district but I believe the management are printing new info sets. Our apartment 20 was decorated in red, white and black, right down to the crockery. Well appointed kitchen. The reception lady was friendly and receptive of any issues. Would definitely return

Stayed here for 2 nights in the Sept school holidays as a quick get away. We stayed in apartment 35. This is a large apt, but does not have access via the lifts as the others do. You can enter thru the garage or down a side path. Whilst this wasn't a problem, I think there should be a note on the booking forms for this apt, letting people know that there are numerous amounts of stairs to get up, as this could be a turn off and make it non accessible for some people. No way to lock the doors from the inside meaning young children could open the door and be straight outside into the car park.
3 toilets, 1 queen bed in main with a single + trundle, 1 queen under bunk with extra trundle in second bedroom. Plenty of toiletries supplied.
Numerous amount of large European pillows in wardrobe in main bedroom, taking up all the shelving space - these have no covers, so not sure what they are doing there.
Ensuite shower does leak water out all over the floor which simply means that you use more towels in order to wipe the water up and stand on something dry.
Kitchen well equipped, large lounge and dining table. Outside area quite crowded.
Upstairs part of the apartment showing some wear and tear and stains in master bedroom. Not a turn off though. No bedside lamps in the main bedroom, which means you had to get up and walk around the corner if you wanted to read in bed.
Good location to walk to beach and main street. Pool and Spa in complex.

Room Tip: Lots of stairs to climb for Apt 35

Great base, with plenty to do within the area. First time in the area and thought it was beautiful. The apartment lived up to our expectations very spacious and clean, well equipped kitchen. We stayed in a 3 bed on the top floor and the views were lovely with a great balcony for breakfast and evening drinks!

Fantastic Apartment & view. A short 3 day stay, turned into a longer stay due to the gorgeous accommodation and wonderful ocean views I had. My 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was the best I have stayed at without any doubt and at a great price. Close to the town centre, beach, and all attractions.
The staff were very helpful & catered to any need I had, this is a rarity I have found along my travels. Thankyou so much Sandy Cove, I shall be returning asap.

This was our first holiday break in 12 months and it was so relaxing. The apartment was huge with every creature comfort. Beds were very comfy like a 5 star resort, quality fittings gourmet kitchen with an espresso coffee maker, wow it won me there! Ocean view was very tranquil from an amazing egg chair swing on the main balcony, which there are 2. The bathrooms were very spacious as was the whole apartment, it was huge. We would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely return again to apartment 21. The management & staff were extremely helpful and courteous.
