Another of the older properties in town, Hillhaven Holiday Apartments is still one of the more impressive accommodation options.
Situated away from the roads, if you love to fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean then this may be the one for you.
Even though the building boasts a peaceful location right on the headland, all the town’s attractions are within easy reach.
Accommodation comes in four categories: Standard, Mid-Range, Deluxe and Gold Deluxe. All apartments are either two bedroom, or two plus one. The views here are truly breath-taking, especially from the upper levels.
It’s the usual apartment-style, which means you have most – if not all – the comforts of home. Kitchen, laundry, private balcony and cable television are standard, with more features as you go up in price.
Two of the Gold Deluxe apartments on the top floor – numbers 33 and 35 – are worth paying the extra for, if you can afford it. Another located on the 8th level – number 25 – is also particularly nice. If it’s not out of your price range, you won’t regret it.
However it should be noted that the majority of apartments do not have air-conditioning, so if you think that this may be an issue for you check what is available before you book. That said, due to where the building is situated you should get a nice sea breeze.
There isn’t much in the way of resort facilities: no pool, no gym, no tennis courts etc. But to be honest, with the town, the beach and the National Park all so close, for most guests it won’t be a major issue.
Hard to beat the location if you want great views and prefer the sound of waves breaking to the noise of traffic. The Deluxe apartments are worth the extra.
