The lady at the reception was lovely, and explained everything. We were surprised that the room had supplied more then the average hotels. This was amazing as we had a newborn and young kids with us. We had an amazing time and have been recommending to family and friends. Very happy with our experience and would definitely be coming back...

This place has a central swimming pool with most of the units surrounding it. The units otherwise do not have a view of anything but the pool and the garden that surrounds it. The apartments are spacious and reasonably well renovated. The service was prompt to attend to anything that was needed. The beds were comfortable. Overall a good experience.

We had a very relaxing stay, the pool and spa are divine, the gardens are lovely and well maintained, the unit we stayed in was very clean and had everything we needed. The staff were friendly & helpful, we highly recommended Whalecove as a great place to stay. We also ate at Smokey Joe's, fantastic food, an easy walk.

Whale Cove has really good facilities, and friendly staff. The units were clean and comfy and it was priced well for when we were here. You are able to receive visitors and guests and enjoy their company out by the pool BBQ areas. We really enjoyed the relaxed environment.

Not sure if this should be called a resort or a housing commission estate (or prison). We had a very uncomfortable and disturbing experience whilst staying here. Our experience is that permanent residents are intolerant of hotel guests and children who might like to play in the pool on a warm afternoon. Getting abused and confronted by a permanent resident...
