We stayed at Oaks Lure for two nights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful especially with after hours check in and offering advice on beaches and other attractions in the area. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with a view of the bay....More

We've stayed at this property at least 4-5 times before (which interestingly they never seem to have on record) and always enjoy it. The service is friendly and efficient, the property is decent (yep as a few other reviewers have noted, could do with a...More

Unfortunately our experience at this hotel has been ruined by the false assumption of a "king size bed", instead we were given two, rock hard, singles pushed together with a gap between where my partner and I would sink into. We had to sleep on...More

hi Jules if I had seen this post first I would have made sure that the room I booked had block-out curtains. We stayed in room 208b last night and got woken up at 6.30 with the sun, It looks like the management of this place does not want to spend any money on making sure their visitors make a return visit ,or bad word of mouth to their friends. I will be spreading the word about this dump, not doing anything about the curtains since your review , 4 months is a long time and the rooms are not cheap
The question is would the missing block-out curtain cause you not to return

Hi Luis. I'm sorry to hear about your experience, I really would have thought that management would be on to fixing all rooms with curtains once the issue was highlighted. In fact, one thing I just noticed in the manager's response to my review was that there was no acknowledgement about the curtain issue at all.
Whilst I agree that having no curtains can ruin a stay, as lack of sleep doesn't encourage anyone to get into holiday mode, I think everything else at Oaks Lure was well done. I will probably return, but I will be checking for curtains on arrival, and won't be accepting "no" as an option if they are not forthcoming.
