We had a wonderful stay at Whales Bay apartments. The 2 bedroom unit was perfect for our family of 4 and had everything we needed, including a high chair and crib for our little one. The location was perfect, in a peaceful setting on the coast and within a short drive to most of the places we visited on the island. We loved it!

The hotel had all we needed to feel at home. We like to cook, and the apartment had a fully equipped kitchen with good quality utensils. The view from the balcony was spectacular, and we could cheerfully have lived there for a long time.. And the pool was great too..

Loved the view from balcony and the brightness of the unit. Didnt really cook but the kitcen amenities were good. A coffee table would have been nice. I would have liked to use the gym but the equipment wasn't very good and the room was uncomfortably hot
