We are just back from the Ponta Grande Resort and have to say it was exceptional. We booked through holiday rentals and stayed in number 26. The owner has his own website which we found had some excellent advice of things to do, beaches and places to eat etc,. It's called miholidayhome.com. The resort is spotless with great facilities for... More

Two bedroom terraced villa, reasonably spacious. Good sized pool but tired furniture and when busy not enough sun loungers. Tiles falling off pool sides. Annoying music played from 9am. Bar covered in football scarves & football on TV all the time. Restaraunt very average but inexpensive. Pool good for kids, lovely beaches & good restaraunts nearby.

I cannot recommend this resort at all. While the location is near a fantastic quiet beach there isn't very much else around. You need to take a taxi to the town. The grounds themselves are nice enough but trying to get any service, even as basic as food or drink is like an episode of fawlty towers. The pool is... More

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

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
