We stayed for a 3 night break, the main reason for booking this accommodation was that it seemed top end, with an excellent view, and away from the crowds as it was a treat for my wife's Birthday, and it met our expectations and more!
The apartment was really well equipped, and everything you might have needed for a self catering break was there, plus it was nice & clean, and felt cared for. The sofas were comfortable with amazing views of the bay and Torquay in the distance from whichever one you sat on. The bed was also comfy, and the duvet and cover were high quality, which aided a good night's sleep. There were sea views from the front bedroom, but those staying in the back wouldn't be as thrilled. The bathroom and shower were also very good, and the wifi was very reliable.
We only sat on the balcony once as the temperature cooled down during our stay, but it was laid out well with good seating and plenty of space, plus the bbq looked decent quality, though we didn't get around to using it. I could imagine on a hot day it would be amazing to just sit for hours taking in the view, though one point to note if you are a sun worshipper, it sets behind the complex so you wouldn't get the heat of the sun in the late afternoon or evening from the balcony or even the beach.
We knew Brixham town was fairly near but hadn't realised how close it was via the cliff top walk, and how easy it was to negociate it. Even at night with no street lights it was fairly easy to find our way back with torchlight and it felt very safe. In fact once we had parked the car on the Thursday outside the appartment we didn't need to use it again until we drove home on the Sunday. The beach below the complex was really good, with a small cafe if needed, and it was amazing seeing the local seals bob their heads out of the water close by as if to say hello to you.
Some reviews have mentioned the noisy entertainment complex to the back of the apartment. Okay, there was a bit of live music on the Friday evening, and it could be heard from Puffin 4, but it died down around 10.30pm and we didn't hear a peep for the rest of our stay.We were actually amazed how quiet the whole of 'The Cove was during our stay, though realise that late September isn't exactly peak time.
i should finally mention how accommodating the booking agent was in allowing us to stay until later on the check out day as nobody was staying for a few days after us - it really helped get the most of the weekend as we didn't have to rush that morning to pack and leave.
