  • “We have been to The Boats twice previously.”

    This time was not as good as the previous two. We have catalogued our disappointments with Carbis Bay Holidays.

Our holiday did not get off to best of starts when the four of us arrived to find only one damaged wine glass available.

    This time was not as good as the previous two. We have catalogued our disappointments with Carbis Bay Holidays. These range from a tear in the net curtain, fluff and dirt around extractor fan, cobwebs on the windows, greasy used baking trays and a roasting tin put back in the cupboard. Our holiday did not get off to best of starts when the four of us arrived to find only one damaged wine glass available. We are a group of four adults over the age of 50 and felt we were being treated like children because of the way the Sky package is set up. To not be able to access the full content (as advertised) is ridiculous.You cannot even record a film and replay it the following day before 9pm.Seeing as the owners are reading this, we would like to point out that you have given us the password previously with no issues. We have been loyal customers to Carbis Bay Holidays for more than 10 years.
