This was a return visit to this all inclusive hotel. The staff there once again make the holiday. Yes sometimes the hotel gets overbooked but the staff at the Reception like Enrique and Freddie make the delays more than tolerable. Walking into the hotel and quickly to the pool area or buffet puts all the travel problems in the past.... More

This was myself and my best friends 4th year spending a week at the Gran Porta Real. It has been more wonderful every visit. The special people we meet every year and the ones that are still working year to year. The rooms are very clean, we always get a ocean front room. The housekeepers made us feel very special...

Let me begin by saying that the reason I had chosen this hotel as a definite is because of location, location, location. It did however turn out to be that location (although fabulous), the staff there made it mine and my mother’s vacation that much better. This hotel is in walking distance of the famous 5th avenue.

We had our wedding at the resort, and it was more than we could have ever hoped for! The wedding coordinators (Mikaela) were awesome and made everything so easy. The day was perfect, easy and flawless. Our photographer (Ceasar) was so great and our photos are fantastic!! We could not have asked for a better day. Our stay was also... More

We just got back from 4 nights at the Gran Porto Real w/ 3 other couples. We all had an excellent time! After reading so many reviews, I have to say that the buffet restaurant for breakfast and lunch is amazing! The best tacos and enchiladas - ever! Maria's mexican food is hit or miss...the guacamole is excellent and the... More

We had a small room with half a wardrobe and a small window. No balcony and 2 small beds. It's room 417. The worst part is the beach. There are many sand bags along the beach, 3 ranks of sand bags. The've been there for at least 2 years. It's the only hotel with this set up in the area,... More

I did a lot of sourcing on this site to try find a decent review ont the Gran Porto Real. There were positives and a few negatives which in all is probably a fair reflection of this hotel. Upon check-in the hotel were able to give us a room that we had booked - a junior suite ocean view. Room... More

Stayed at the Gran Porto Jan 26th -Jan 31. We (my hubby and another couple) were supposed to stay at the Reef Playacar but, as usual, the Reef was over-booked, so they sent us here. Plane and customs was the usual run. bus ride was not bad, Lomas Travel/ Funjet, better than the Apple debacle last yr. But, that's another... More

We stayed at the Gran Porto for a 2 week holiday in November. The facilities and service were very good and the food and choice was brilliant for an all inclusive resort, although you would expect that from a 5 star hotel. We stayed in a junior suite, which was lovely, although we had asked for an ocean view room... More
