It was some time ago, many things could change since that time. But when we were there, it was absolutely perfect. A wonderful beach, friendly staff, good food and all the related al inclusive services. We enjoyed night bars where waiters did not take care about the amount of rum in your drink :-). Every day, there was a perfect... More

This is lucky to be called a 3 1/2 star. We spent 2 weeks at this resort. The food was terrible. All 4 family members became sick. They do not believe in purified water and most of their salads etc are washed in the same un-purified water. I would never every return here.

I stayed at Portofino complex it was terrible. The toilet could not flush, shower had no hot water, had to make a deposit of 200 B's for a remote control for the TV and towels for the Beach and pool. I will not recommend the hotel to anyone.

First to start the location is very far from everything and very dark at night. The rooms smell humidity, bathroom really bad smell coming out from the sewers plus in really bad shape, rooms will need to be redone completely. Service was good as well as the entertainment given at any time by the pool, beach and theatre at night.... More

I checked in at 10.30pm and went to room 410. Flushed the toilet and the room smelt like a leaking cesspit. I waited for about 15 mins to see if the smell would go away and it didn't. I went to reception and told them and the receptionist who was not very helpful said to go back to the room... More

I want to fair - the hotel and food are not too bad. But the fact that my money and camera was stolen by one of the cleaners whilst I had breakfast was an utter disappointment and shocker. This was my first stay at the hotel and I will not be returning. I would like others to be aware of... More

Omg...The rooms, the bathroom disgusting. The cleanliness of the place was a huge issue..everything was concrete yet though the mattresses weren't too bad. The food maybe a little bland was still okay there were salt and pepper shakers on the table. Wide variety each day of food fruits and desserts ..the exterior was beautiful. ..Although it is roughly an hour... More
