We spent 2 nights at Les Baleines, we were upgraded to a room with amazing views of the ocean and a large balcony area overlooking the pool. Teresa met us on arrival and couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. She gave us her number and said she was available 24/7, she also booked us a restaurant in town. Although Teresa made her self available we were then left to our own devices as if the property was ours. The room itself was wonderful with all the amenities we required.

If this house had been serviced and operated as a Guest House, our experience would have been very different. At the price we paid, it would have been reasonable to expect that the house would have been serviced. It is a big house and our daily helper did her best. The kitchen lacked utensils and other basics. The upstairs bedrooms were well appointed and beautifully decorated. The downstairs living areas of the house are dark. There is sufficiently adequate space for 6 couples.

We have rented the entire home for Christmas and while the beds are comfy and the bathrooms are good , the home is not one that is lived in. The bedroom downstairs is full of damp- could not stay there myself. There is a lack of essential items like oven gloves, bowls ( not teeny tiny bowls but normal sized bowls) , egg boiler (the one in kitchen doesn’t work) , pots , sharp knives etc.. You pay a high price for something that is purely a rental with no soul and no service..only 100 teapots with no use. Lovely pool and view but that’s about it.

Although slightly out of the centre this guest house was fabulous. We had a room which led out on to the deck where the pool was. The owner had booked a restaurant for us for the first evening (which could be cancelled if we didn't want it) but it was lovely. A taxi ride into and from town was easy and cheap. The second night we walked down and ate at a restaurant on the beach which was good, Breakfast was provided - which was good and the room was very comfortable with all the usual amenities provided. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to visit the area

We stayed two nights at this lovely guest house. Our room, beluga whale, was very clean and comfortable with a balcony, sun loungers and a wonderful sea view. Teresa the owner was very welcoming, with helpful advice. Breakfast was nice. Would highly recommend.
