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...

Stayed on ground floor unit adjacent to swimming pool & close to BBQ area. Private patio & garden outside. Handy to marina & Boat club. Easy walk to tour boats. Grounds & facilities are very good and gate entry system works well. A mix of guests and permanent residents in a friendly environment. Nice place and area to stay.

Needed two nights stay as we were going to a wedding. Arrived late which wasn't a problem at all for staff who took care of everything.
