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

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

Stayed there on my anniversary. Friendly staff. Nice spacious grounds. Lots of beautiful ppl around. Food not too bad. Drinks were good. Located a bit far from the town but the drive to and from was nice. Overall it was a fun few days.

I stayed there with a group of 10 women and we all had the same opinion :we were never returning to this hotel EVER! The rooms smelt old and moldy, there are times when there was no water to shower. There was also short periods of power outages ( I guess to save on energy). The bed bases are made... More

I've visited this place several times in the past. This time is the last one. Food was scarcy and poor. Services late and downgraded. Entertaiment lost the splendor of recent years. Front desk attention uncourteos and rude. As I said, no more Portofino for me and my family.

The Hotel is quite clean and fresh. Has lovely views. Has varying levels including cabanas on the ground floor which has patios with chairs for hanging out in the evening. Several swimming pools which gives the place some diversity. And the beach, another source of variety for bathing and meeting the locals there who sell a variety of things at... More
