Our first visit to Guernsey, and could not fault Del Mar Court. Spotlessly clean, both in the apartment and out. Even after a stormy night, by 9am the grounds and pool were cleaned and swept and looked as if the storm had never happened! Just wish the weather would have allowed us to make more use of the lovely pool! All the staff are so friendly and extremely efficient, and nothing is too much trouble - our over washbasin light & shaver point didn't work properly and was replaced within an hour of us reporting it. Thank you Sandra, Phil and Pat (and guest Irene for her island knowledge!)! We were in a 1 bedroomed ground floor apartment due to be refurbished, but it was extremely comfortable, and we were very happy with it. Only slight inconvenience was the lack of water pressure for the shower, bit it did the job - just, and there was always loads of hot water.
Kitchen well equipped for holiday accommodation, just as on inventory - and there was a hair dryer (which wasn't on inventory) and the Guernsey Gache was delicious!
I have to say that although shops and a couple of restaurants are within easy walking distance in day light - we felt that we didn't want to risk the roads walking after dark as no pavements, but taxis are easy to get and quite reasonable if you don't want to drive.
Del Mar Court is a lovely location for a relaxing holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Among places to visit - the Occupation museum, German Underground Hospital and Shipwreck Museum (Fort Grey) all fascinating, and do not miss The Little Chapel - seeing is believing, it's beautiful! And if you like seafood don't miss the Seafood shop on the south quay!!

Points to note about Guernsey as a whole - it is not disabled friendly - most of the attractions we visited would not be accessible for wheelchair users, Guernsey is very hilly and even in St Peter Port a lot of the shops had no apparent easy disabled access. Also do not expect quiet roads - there are more cars on Guernsey than people and driving is NOT a relaxing experience! Note the dents and scrapes on the Guernsey cars in the queues for the ferry at Weymouth! Filters are interesting too, but work! In a week in September I think I only got into 5th gear 2 or 3 times - and I am not a nervous driver! 35 miles an hour is the speed limit - you're lucky to exceed 30 most of the time! A good game for children - spot the Guernsey cow - not as easy as you might think!

Overall a lovely holiday, a rather damp week brightened by Del Mar Court!

Room Tip: People with mobility difficulties should specify a ground floor room.

Thank you very much for your review. It is great to hear such comments and they will be passed on to the girls and Phil. As you say we have just a couple more of the apartments to refurbish the bathrooms over this winter and you will be pleased to hear that we will be starting the process of putting in a pressurised system so there will be no further issues with pressure to the showers. Hope you will able to return one day.

We stayed at Del Mar Court at the end of May for a weeks holiday in Guernsey and what a fantastic holiday we had. Our 0ne bed apartment was beautifully clean and I have to say that this seems to be unsual in the many places I have stayed! The apartment had a large double bedroom and a small bunkbed area which can be rather tight if there are four of you, but I was aware of this at the booking stage and as we had a 5 month baby and an 8 year old son I felt this was acceptable for what we needed. The lady who serviced the apartments was lovely and the apartment had a great pool which my son had to himself most of the time. The views from the apartment were lovely, there is a small kids play area and the weather helped as this was perfect too.
The cost of the apartment was very reasonable and I would not hesitate to return there. The booking online was very easy and informative. There was only one small detail that I could find with these apartments and this did not even bother me but it may other people, as I think I did read it on another review but the apartments are close to the airport and there are a surprising amount of aeroplanes that fly to the Island but this did not bother me at all and would not put me off staying there.

Room Tip: I was very happy with our 1st floor apartment but if I returned I think I may request a ground floor...

We stayed for a week in August and had such a good time we are returning next year. My two boys loved the pool and we found the location great for walking to Fermain Bay or into St Peter Port. The apartment was just what we needed and was clean. Staff all very helpful. Wonderful!

It was our first visit to Guernsey and Del Mar Court was an ideal base, quiet but in walking distance of local shops and a couple of restaurants. We really enjoyed walking down to the cafe at Fermain Bay where there is also a nice quiet beach. The kids enjoyed having a swim each day in the heated pool.

The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Apartment 7 which had a lovely view of the sea from the living room.

Fantastic stay in this lovely apartment complex. The housekeeper is so friendly and helpful. The pool is lovely and we have already booked for next year.

The only criticism is that the driveway between the main area and the pool is a nightmare and absolute vigilance is required for the under 6s to make sure they cross safely.

We were extremely happy with our stay at the Del Mar Court. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the apartment was basic but clean (and is being refurbished anyway soon.) The pool was the standout feature - an outdoor heated pool that was actually warm - and right outside your door! Location wise, a main attraction, Saumarez Manor, was literally across the road, with the rest of the island easily accessible, with activities including karting, a cinema, and our favourite beach, Port Soif, across the other side. Branded supermarkets were within walking distance, but for a real taste of Guernsey farm meat (try the Chinese pork) Forest Stores was just ten minutes away by car. The local beach was Fermain Bay, and while it was quite a long walk down (not so bad) coming up was (for someone as unfit as me) challenging! However, it was worth it - the landscape is spectacular and the beach unspoilt, with excellent facilities (cafe and toilets). Guernsey is beautiful and we'll definitely stay here again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: Check when booking if you prefer a double or two singles.

We stayed at the Del Mar Court apartments for the first time and were very pleased with the accommodation. Our two-bedroomed apartment was on the ground-floor, and very clean.
It all helped for a relaxed holiday in beautiful Guernsey. Definitely recommended!
