Everywhere in and around hotel was pristine! Even though a big complex, beautiful planning made it not seem big! Pools stunning and kept spotlessly clean. Even though this hotel would have been...

We stayed here the first week of half term (18th to 25th Oct) with our teenage sons, having really enjoyed our holiday here last year. We booked via Alpharooms and tried TAP for our flights this year and apart from a 2 hour delay going out they were pretty good and the seats had loads of leg room. We used... More

We went two people, me and my wife. The service is excellent without being pushing. We had a big seafront room. Breakfast very good. Also there is a gym, outdoor and indoor pool.The garden is magnificent. Atmosphere relaxed, warm and friendly. You should visit. /Erik in Stockholm

I booked Porto Mare directly through email. The process was efficient, quick and was dealt with by customer focussed, friendly and courtious staff - a great start. When we arrived at the hotel the Reception Staff continued providing excellent and friendly service. Our room was perfect; very clean, spacious, pleasing to the eye, had everything we needed and a magnificent... More

Just returned from our third trip to this beautiful hotel where we celebrated my mother's 80th birthday. I can honestly say that the hotel did above and beyond our expectations and hopes to make her birthday celebrations really special. She even had the restaurant wall decorated with a happy birthday sign, balloons and rose petals over the table and the... More

Superb holiday, the hotel definitely deserving of its four star rating, if not 5 star in many respects. All the staff were absolutely amazing. We have stayed at many five stars with stuffy staff who had to force a smile, but here all the staff from the pool team, the waiters, cleaning ladies, bar and restaurant staff to the fantastic...

We have been here sometimes as visitors for dinning or just a drink. Today with my family we went to try afternoon tea and do recommend it. Service very nice in a great atmosphere,very cosy area with amazing tea, sandwichs, cakes, scones and finger sandwiches. Price also very attractive. To repeat and to recommend this hotel and service overall.

This hotel is centrally located between three virtually joined up hotels. To the left (from the road and facing south) is the Eden Mar, then in the middle is the more architecturally modern and attractive Porto Mare and at the other end and on lower levels towards the sea is the Residence. The Residence is not so much a hotel... More
