We stayed in one of the smaller units and although well positioned and well equiped, it looking rather neglected, aged and really was in need of some loving attention. I had to use bed pillows on the chairs as the cushions were totally flat. It really needed a revamp. This would be ideal for families as there is plenty of...

Sea Forever has one of the best locations we have stayed in around the world and would be 5* if it was refurbished. It really needs a good clean. Pillows stained. Curtains and seat covers required a good wash. No shower head. Outside lights not working. Corroded window handles. WHAT A SHAME.! Could be fantastic. Would not want other cabins...

We only spent a night here - but had a great time. We stayed in Sand Castle and enjoyed the double story. It was close to the beach and we also used the nearby resort swimming pool. We are definitely going back and would highly recommend it.

Always lovely to stay at Rugged rocks with the beautiful sea views. Lovely beach cottage, we have stayed in most of the cottages at Rugged rocks but our favorite is sea forever which is right on the beach. Very safe and relaxing.

We stayed in the Sea Forever cottage. The cottage was lovely. Very spacious and equiped with everything you need. The cottage is on the beach an you just have to walk over the dune to reach the beautifull beach. I would definately recommend this cottage for any one who loves a beach holiday and would like to relax. Our family...

We arrived to this hidden gem with stunning sea views, and easily accessible to the beach. Glass windows all around, and a great spa bath to help you relax at night. We spent four days in this self catering resort, and were all sorry when it came to an end. One of the people sharing the accomodation with us left...
