So chuffed to find a modern villa, at a good price, that allows dogs. We weren't at all bothered that the location was on a holiday park, which wasn't the prettiest. It didn't affect us in any way, in fact the people who live in the bungalows were very friendly and always spoke when we were out walking the dog....

The impression on arrival is somewhat underwhelming, as you head down the access road, with a mishmash of different buildings, from holiday homes to mobile homes of varying quality. However, once you are in the small development area of the new villas then you are in a different world. There is a small Nisa convenience store a short walk away....

Arrived at just after 4.00p.m. no problem getting Keys from key safe outside Villa 26. We were in Villa 27 everything was fine and clean with everything provided as per the description. As this was a budget break with Secret Escapes we considered that it was excellent value for money. The biggest drawback was the lack of hanging space in...

My wife and I stayed for the week to Thursday 9 March. There are about 28 apartments in a secluded square having been built in 2008. Our apartment, no 18 was clean, airy and nicely set out with a kitchen/diner/lounge area of a decent size. Upstairs were two bedrooms, one double with a wardrobe and one with two single beds...

When we arrived there was some tea,coffee sugar and milk which we thought was a nice touch, there were also dishwasher tablets, tea cloths and j cloths. The bathroom floor was dirty and a lot of hairs on the twin bedroom carpet. Nevertheless we had a great week, everything you need is there.There is a washer/drier ,but no instruction manual...

The Bay Retreat Villas are ok, nice size, living area could be a little bigger if there were 3 or 4 of you ( Family ). The best part was that you get ( well I did ) a £50 Gift card to use in any Rick Steins establishment, very nice. The not so good part, certain things in the...
