  • "As we have stayed in peninsular apartments many times we we’re disappointed not to find a bottle of cava in the fridge especially with holiday Property’s in cornwall having 2 great years."

    We would have also liked some dessert forks as the others were a bit big for somethings.

    Dear Ms. Pegg, Thank you fro taking the time to submit your feedback for your recent stay at Crystal Bay. We are sorry that you were disappointed by the things you have mentioned, but we sincerely hope that the wonderful apartment with those stunning views made up for them. The welcome pack in our properties for guest check in is put in by ourselves; anything else is added by the owner, so this can vary between each property. With the array of cutlery that each of our properties provide for your convenience, and we do offer a very large range of kitchen equipment, we do not feel it deemed as necessary to purchase cake forks; apologies for the inconvenience and we hope you understand. Once again, we hope you had an enjoyable stay at Crystal Bay and we hope to invite you back in the future. Kind Regards, Owner Relations, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "My husband was taken ill, we believed he might be having a heart attack,we called for an ambulance and they said used a defibrillator now!"

    We called the contact number for the flat, and were given another number to call, we called that number, no one answered and the message we received was that the mailbox was full and messages could not be left. This was a major issue at the time. There should be a defibrillator in the main foyer. The other issue was that the bridge walkway, and the main foyer were not kept clean (just swept would have solved it) - they were full of leaves and miscellaneous items, like paper bags, straws, masks, etc. It was only on Thursday morning that a team of cleaners arrived. Otherwise, the flat was great and met our expectations, except that some of the plates were in short supply which meant I had to keep washing up certain items. The beds were very comfortable. The TV's were too small for the size of the rooms. Even with my complaints we would like to return to the development, to flat 14, the flat above 12 where we stayed, as we believe we might see the sun for a bit longer.

    Dear Mrs Frisch, Thank you for your feedback and the time on the phone earlier. As discussed if the emergency services state that your husband needs a defibrillator, the emergency services can tell you the nearest location of the defibrillator once they know your location and also they will give you the key code to unlock the case. Unfortunately, this is not a situation a member of staff would be able to assist you with as it is part of “999” emergency services. We will put forward your request for a defibrillator to be put in the development as a whole to the block management company who manage the development and also the cleaning of the communal areas. We will also ask the housekeepers to count the plate in the property to ensure there is sufficient for each guest’s stay. We are also investigating the number you called for the emergency out of hours to ensure that all guests can get through to a member of staff if there is a genuine emergency with the property. Thank you for taking the time to come back to us and we wish your husband a speedy recovery. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner
