We were traveling as a family of 4 and stayed at Ponta Grande resort this month. We were a bit anxious after reading the negative reviews. When we checked in, I was really honest and told the front desk lady about my concerns from the reviews. I asked to see the rooms before I paid. She was very understanding and... More

We used points from our Club La Costa to stay at what can only be described at best as 1 star accomodation. The Villa (no 18) was dated and furnished with what looked like furniture rescued from the tip. Included the 1970's TV. We complained about the condition and was told that we could not be moved as the resort... More

I want to start by saying the staff were great, really helpful and nice people. I can't fault them really but unfortunately the resort wasn't the best it could be. On the plus sides the units are large and I like the layout of them, big windows at the front and nice sized external area to sit in and eat... More

Review The units given on this RCI exchange were very poor and basic. Large kitchen was good , apartment size was large but the bathrooms were both awful and not very clean- toilet seat was badly damaged and could not have been cleaned properly, there was thick black mould across all grout and mastic between tiles, shower curtain was dirty....

We stayed at a nearby hotel recently for four nights, but had drinks every afternoon at this resort. The bar staff were very accommodating and friendly. A glass of house wine was only 2 euros. We weren't sure what it would taste like at that price, but it was really good. We had a few snacks, including a lovely tuna... More

This has an Excellent bar and also a very excellent restaurant, it is well worth a visit and revisits. Bar staff are very friendly and helpful, likewise the restaurant staff. It has entertainment on some nights when the restaurant ends its shift.

I got this resort from RCI.com. The resort is located in a quiet neighborhood, very close to beach ( 10 min walk, less than 5 min drive). The room is spacious, 2 stories, more like townhouse in US. Two bedrooms are upstairs, family room and kitchen are downstairs. It can easily accommodate 4 people (2 separate beds in 2 rooms).... More

Our rental unit was huge--actually larger than we needed. They unfortunately did not include basic needs. The website said each kitchen would include a coffee maker and blender. Neither were provided nor available at request. The advertised hair dryer was not in the unit, but we had to get one from the front desk and pay a 20 euro deposit.... More

We stayed for three nights between Xmas and New Year and the villa was fine. Obviously it was very quiet as there were few tourists around and many restaurants were shut for the holiday. The resort itself is well situated for the beautiful beaches nearby. I can imagine it is so much nicer in season, but we enjoyed our short... More

Apartment was spacious - 2 bedrooms, good sized lounge, large patio, even 2 fridges. The kitchen was missing a few basics - no wine glasses (we used tumblers!), no coffee maker (got one soon after arrival), only one sharp knife etc. However, for the first week of our fortnight, the bar/restaurant was closed, which was disappointing. Once it opened, it... More
