We have just returned from a 10 day break at this hotel. Overall the hotel was very good, but there are a few issues. Firstly the good points. The hotel is situated about a 30 minute walk from the town centre – downhill all the way. There are a number of restaurants within a few minutes of the hotel offering... More

Just returned from 1 week in Porto Mare, mid-August 2014. Weather beautiful every day. Hotel fabulous. Gardens impressive. Staff attentive and helpful. Thomson rep brilliant. Hotel proved to be highly accessible as we have a child in a wheelchair and we were able to get around the hotel complex completely. Trips are more limited, but we still managed a trip... More

I have just returned from a glorious week at the Porto Mare with my family. The hotel, in true Porto Bay style, is immaculately clean and luxurious. We had a ground floor room with a garden view, allowing quick access to the grounds and pool. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The balcony included a drying rack, on which... More

The staff were amazing. Marisela, Katia and Isabel in reception, what lovely caring ladies. Our luggage was delayed and they could not have been more helpful and always smiling. The hotel was fabulous, the food wonderful. The gardens are so serene and so beautifully kept, with some unusual flowers and they are perfect for the holiday photographs. The rooms very... More

Very nice hotel , good service , lots of restaurants and pools . High on cleanliness and a lovely spot overlooking the ocean . The only downsides would be the battle to get a sunbed near the pool in high season although they have many scattered around overlooking the sea and in garden areas which helps . Also the entertainment... More

Not having stayed for more than a few days in a European Hotel for many years we weren't sure what to expect from the Porto Mare. Website pictures can sometimes be deceiving as can reviews but I'm delighted to say the hotel was even better than we'd been led to believe. The setting overlooking the sea is perfect and the...

The Porto Mare is a very relaxing and pleasant hotel to stay at which is ideal for couples seeking a relatively quiet holiday. I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and two daughters (aged 18 and 20 yrs) for 11 nights. On arrival at the hotel reception, our rooms were not ready even though it was 2pm (check-in...

Had a lovely holiday. The hotel was at least 4*. Two of the ladies on reception were a bit on the brusque side but the lady in the evening was very nice and so were the gentlemen. The rooms were very spacious considering we had an extra bed, we had a lovely big balcony with views over the pools. Found... More
