“Addition to my London memories”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My friends organized my leaving-do here over the weekend before I left London. This place was an incredible selection for our get together - the beach like bright ambience, the lightening, DJ system (with a book - DJ for Dummies), the beautiful rooms (nicely decorated before we arrived), the bar (with a call bell), the pleasant sound of waves at night while in balcony and the morning walk to the beach....It was just perfect. All of us simply loved it.

The host Karl was really helpful in guiding us how things work inside e.g. lightening, heating, etc. and was just a call away at all times.

I would love to visit again....hopefully whenever I am back in UK next, this will be on my list.

-Jay.

“Just stunning!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I was there for my hen do with 7 other girls. Despite the horrible weather, we had an amazing time at the villa. The trip & the weather was all worth it. We made use of all the rooms- The sun room, cinema room, Lounge, beautiful bedrooms and the huge bathrooms with jacuzzi.Kitchen was a big surprise! Massive kitchen with sinks as big as bath tubs.The DJ booth was so much fun, we danced all night. In summary, I would recommend this place to everyone. It is as beautiful and attractive as it looks in the picture. A must go place definitely.

“Quirky With Bags Of Potential Still To Be Realised”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My family of five including three daughters of 18, 15 & 13 had a very enjoyable stay at the Beach Sun Retreat over the May Bank Holiday weekend (second one for 3 nights). We all loved the Beach area and constantly had the setting on Miami. The girls enjoyed the cinema room (even if the seats did become a little uncomfy after a while) and the disco decks, lights etc. There are two good bedrooms but the third is a little small which led to a bit of an issue but nothing that wasn't sorted by the more placid of the three agreeing to have the smaller room. Kitchen has all the mod cons although to be fair we ate out most nights as the sun shone outside as much as it did in and then you just have to have fish and chips on the front don't you. The strange thing for us was once the sun shined outside everyone wanted to be outside so the main attraction became a little redundant but with the UK weather that is one thing you can't guarantee. Consequently, visiting this property gives you the best of both worlds as the beach is terrific and Dymchurch although small has a couple of nice pubs close by and some quaint coffee shops as well. If the potential could be realised by updating the upstairs and maybe buying a bit of land out the back and putting in an indoor pool ( I appreciate that is not going to be cheap) , I really can't see where could be better for a relaxing break in the UK. Take a chance, it's well worth it.
