We had a great time at this flat, couldnt fault it. Had all the equipment we needed, very clean and the view was fantastic. Location was great, we only used the car once. Wed gladly stay again. Only issue we had was we got stuck in the lift but thats a building issue, not a flat one and the company sent someone out very quickly

We loved the apartment it was central and had the most wonderful views, however, this was spoilt by the fact that the 2nd balcony was not able to be used.there were notes saying do not use I paid for a 2 balcony apartment and was not advised prior to arrival, also the 1st few days were spoiled by work being carried out in the downstairs apartment, Read morewe had drilling and banging during the day, I feel very disappointed ,this took the shine off our holiday.

This is by far the best place we've ever stayed at! Deco is extremely well placed for easy access to the town and the beach. The best part though is the panoramic view, it's awesome!! The apartment was extremely well equipped and the owner seems to have thought of everything. We'd certainly recommend it and would love to return soon.

Fabulous location, with the beach, shops, restaurants, buses right on the doorstep. Our first impression was of a beautiful, comfortable apartment, but closer inspection revealed bed linen that did not appear to have been changed, dirty towels not removed, surfaces not dusted and hit-and-miss vacuuming. However Holiday Cottages were exemplary in deRead morealing with these complaints, sending someone out straight away to deal with the issues. Members of staff were very helpful and polite. Hide
