We went in the UK October half term on Easyjet....really silly flight times meaning it was gone midnight when we arrived at Clube Porto-Mos, when we arrived we were checked in very quickly and into our apartment by 1.30am! The brochure photos are very well taken as the apartment is quite different.
We had 4 adults in a 1 bed apartment, in hindsight we should have taken 2 rooms as it was cramped and we were waking each other up in the night going to the bathroom or getting a drink. The aprtment has everything and more, kettle, toaster, pans, plates etc. No cooker but 2 hob plates. You get washing up liquid and scrubber/tea towels supplied which is a good touch! The bathroom again has everything you need and a hair drier. The one in our room packed up on day 2 but was fixed later in the day.
We had an issue with ants also on the 2nd day and requested a room change. The ants were in our cases and clothes so we had a panic! The reception offered a spray which having one in our party with asthma was worrying. There were no other rooms in our category....sometimes a bit of customer service can go a long way. The maids are sporadic and come before 10am, so if you feel like a lie in or have teenagers that laze about put the Do Not Disturb on the door, our youngest had a real fright when they came to clean one morning! They missed several days so your towels need to last....
The breakfast buffet is an experience! The waitress needs smile classes, we guessed it was a buffet after seeing the scrum of people at the coffee machine. Its full of bread products but then again its a continental...all for 8.50 Euros......rip offffffff.......
You need a car!! You really do!!! There is nothing around the hotel, 2 restaurants/cafe's and the beach....thats all!! Even the Supermarket is a walk up a big, steep hill and takes over an hour. So if you want supplies or want to see anything else get a car! A Taxi to the centre was 5 Euro's.
There are good Car deals via reception, we hired a Fiesta for 3 days for 76 Euros. It was for 3 x 24 hours, so it was dropped off at 12 Tuesday and we returned 12 Thursday. We made great use of it!! The week long is dearer, obvs! I think what we did as in hiring half way through the day gave us most use.
The walk to the beach via the hill top path is a little scary! The hotel next door (Rapunzel??)...looked great btw, has a lovely path to their pool and building, we accidently follwoed this one thinking it was our path....we turned round and ended up on a dirt track with bo steps or handrails. I would only suggest use of this path if you have walking shoes on!
WIFI - free access as long as you are sat in reception, was so funny seeing the same teenagers sat in reception all day FB'ing mates! TV has lots of German channels and 2 English - BBC1 and Sky News.
Pools - one outdoor, very cold. Indoor in the "health spa" was warmer but mucky with bits floating...needed a good clean
Although it was 1/2 term the place was dead...nothing happening, restaurant had 5/6 people in at night. If you want quiet and boring...this is the place to go!
