We did not actually stay at Ponta Grande resort but visited several times from our nearby apartment. The Staff are fantastic and friendly and treated us well during the whole trip. We had breakfast and also food in the restaurant at night. The breakfast is a little pricey but its Well cooked English food. The offer menu at €8.90 for... More

Arrived to a very relaxed ambiance late at night. We were bought into a very clean villa which was an accurate representation of pictures on websites we had looked at (although the beds were a little bit hard for our comfort, ending up in my Dad sleeping on the comfier sofa). The food was made to order and made very... More

This hoiday was arranged via my sister and as a party of nine -2 families. We were pleasantly surprised at the spacious accommodation that we had been allocated. A two bedroom, two bathroom spacious house with a outside courtyard. On the whole very good, could do with minor upgrades of decoration but both families were pleased. The day before leaving...

Have been told to try this for ages by friends of ours and have never managed to do so until yesterday. The food, service and fantastic staff made lunch time very enjoyable. We will be returning soon for an evening meal, but the lunch time menu is second to none - 100% recomend it to anyone

Like most of the recent reviewers we were very impressed with Ponta Grande. The apartments were beautifully spacious. Dated? Perhaps but only slightly and very well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and much larger than usual. The restaurant on site is good and excellent value. We were there in March but they still had a cabaret night which was... More

Stayed last week and although the weather wasn't brilliant the venue made up for it. We had heating in every room, including the bathroom. We were amazed at the staff and customer service. We reported that the microwave wasn't working properly and within half an hour a new one had been fitted! We will definitely go back to this resort.

Although the reset and area was quiet there were still plenty of bars and restaurants open particularly in the lovely fishing villages on the coast. The resort was beautifully maintained centred round a pleasant pool and the accommodation was very good although a little dated,it was very spacious with high ceilings and a good sized terrace. The on site bar... More

Just back from a week in this excellent resort. The accommodation is first class with bedrooms on an upper level so the lounge/diner and kitchen can be increased in size. Staff are most friendly and are genuinely pleased to help. The on site restaurant can't be faulted. They have a menu of the day at €8.90 but the normal prices... More
