As always a great stay in these perfectly located beach Villas. They are basic but perfectly clean, tidy and comfy, just what is needed for a beach holiday with or without dogs. Short walk to the stunning beach, absolute convenience and the beauty of the sand dunes opposite. Always found the reception, team, cleaners to be super friendly and helpful. Will visit again.
Clean, well appointed villa with comfortable beds, the dogs loved it and enjoyed the beach at least twice a day, occasionally more. I never made it to the beach because although I'd spoken to a member of staff before booking to ask about access through the dunes and was informed that that there were concrete paths I wasn't told that in places there were slopes, in particular the quite steep ramp down from the car park to the beach. Even if I'd made use of a beach wheelchair I would have needed assistance to get down and up the ramp and with four dogs to control my friend wouldn't have been able to push me. It spoiled the holiday for me and for my friend, who incidentally had nothing but praise for the members of staff she spoke to having left her laptop behind. They were friendly and helpful and organised it being returned to her as speedily as possible.
We have just got back from a short break here. Absolutely excellent location and accommodation. The most dog-friendly place we have ever stayed. The chalet was spotless and well equipped with a few nice 'doggy' touches - a doggy bag of treats including biscuits, a tennis ball, poo bags and a dog identity disc.Straight out of the chalet onto miles of dunes and an endless beach.
Our 4th stay in the villa but the first time we have arrived in daylight. As soon as we turned off the road, drank in the amazing view Peppa sat up wagging her tail & I swear was smiling the happiest doggy smile ever!Dunes 8 as always was spotlessly clean with the great addition of WiFi & smart tv's. Meant my husband could finish his work , our little girl could watch her favourite tea time programmes & mummy could sit outside with a glass of wine listening to the sea.We were extremely lucky with the weather, lots of long walks on the beach & burrows - absolutely perfect . As always sad faces on leaving & an absolutely exhausted dog!Already looking at dates for our next trip.Thank you once again for an amazing long weekend .
