This is a beautifully situated venue right on top of the beach. The grounds are first class with a spacious pool. Apartments are comfortable without being luxurious. The decor is a bit dated and in places like the bathroom downright tired. Odd cracked tile and the like. Beds are comfortable with aircon in the bedroom. Bit disappointed with the crockery...

Carettas Nest is situated almost on the beach and far away enough from Skala to be peaceful without being too far for the morning bakery trip. The apartments nestle into the beautiful gardens and are spacious and well-appointed. My only negative is the bathrooms are getting "tired", could definitely do with modernisation. Having said that we always found it as...

You get the message - location is great - thats a given. The complex is run on day to day basis by the cleaner / come gardener - the owners sadly seem to tske little active interest in running the place. They are lucky to have Joberg he does his best and is the new star at Careattas Nest working...

We have visited Carettas Nest for the past three years. In agreement with other reviews we consider the location superb for those looking for a quiet relaxing holiday. We have not stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment so can only comment on the one bedroom apartments we have used (nos 1 and 2). The bedrooms are a good size with...

Apartments have air conditioning which is very powerful. Beds are comfortable and rooms are daily cleaned. The pool is clean and refreshing. The staff are...

I'm going to be quite critical regarding our stay at Caretta's nest, which might upset the regular visitors to this accommodation. But I feel if the regular holiday makers were more honest than being loyal, for the price we payed..I'd probably have found somewhere else to stay. Firstly I must totally agree, the location of Caretta's Nest is an amazing...
