Deco 5 Is an amazing property with far reaching views across the bay. We are a family of 5 and had a great week here. It is close to the beach and the town and is the perfect base. It is in need of a deep clean and a bit of love, but it is an amazing place to stay and we loved it.

I am 92 years of age and spent my annual holiday with my four daughters who are 69, 67, 65 and 58. We were all delighted with the property which was very clean and comfortable. The view from the lounge and balconies was wonderful and we really didnt want to leave. The lift made access very easy for me. I hope to be able to visit again. Thank you.

Fabulous views from apartment but in general tired with poor quality beds & furniture.We had a very poor start to our holiday.- beds had not been changed,we suspect possibly in quite a while,towels reused and dirty bath mats rolled up and reused.The kitchen was also pretty dirty and bathroom floors not seen a mop-general cleanliness very poor. OnceRead more reported,Holiday Cottages were superb in their response-sent someone in to sort it out.It should not have been allowed to be let in that state. Hide
