Good day. The experience at Driftsands was wonderful. The cleaning services were excellent. Unfortunately the Unit were not up to standard in terms of upgrades, furniture, TV's, balcony, cupboards, kettle, cutlery etc for the price paid.

Our stay was truly uncomfortable. From the beds being in horrible condition to the fact that nothing was as advertised. We were shouted at by security guard at 16:30 for "talking to loud" whilst outside. Accomodation was advertised for 8 people but we battled to fit 7 of us in there. Not a place I would visit again.

The accommodation was well placed with an easy access to the sea and beach. There was a view of the sea, which is always a plus. As we were in town to visit friends in a retirement home, we were looking for something inexpensive that was pleasant. This unit fitted that need. All in all, we enjoyed our short stay.

What more could you ask for. Very neat, clean and stylish apartment. Furniture and appliances of very good quality. Most beautiful view of the ocean and so lovely to hear the fall of the waves at night when you sleep. Unfortunately, our neighbors on top were very noisy on the first night and it was a bit annoying.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. It is a pity you did not contact us about the noise at the time, as do have a security guard at night and he would have sorted out the problem.
