We stayed at El Greco Hotel at the end of June, with my wife and 3 children. Our first day the flight was delayed because of the strike with Air France and didn't arrive at the hotel till after 11, that night the hotel had keep us a cold meat salad and offered us a drink when we got their. This was very nice of them.
The hotel is great and very clean, our room was cleaned every day and fresh towels put out for us, the staff are great and very helpful in any way they can be. The food at El Greco is lovely as well, we were all inclusive and never got sick of seeing the same food, as they changed it up for every meal time. The dining room is over looking the beautiful surroundings of Portinatx and is easy to chill out in.
The pool is a bit small, but it was never to packed that you couldn't get in, either to play in it or go for a swim and a small kids pool to go with it also the pool seemed to be cleaned every couple of days. There is also a balcony for people to sun bath on, so if you are here not as a family you also have somewhere away from children to relax, and still close to pool. I though this was a good idea. Also you have a 2 min walk till the beach and the water park, it's hard to beat that, the water park has 4 adult slide and 1 kids slide, it's not that big but it does the trick. You also have sun beds and poolside bar at the water park as well. The beach is great being so close to you, sun beds and umbrellas are €5 each. Though we went in the evening after our two younger children had a sleep. The water is the beach is very clear that you can see the fish swimming in it, you can also hire boats with slides on them and do water sports, all looks good craic but maybe in a few years for my family.
Portinatx isn't that big so you can walk round it handy enough. Vincent's Bar shows all sports including GAA games if you ask them to put them on, Sixto's does a glass bottom boat tour of Portinatx and their is also crazy golf available.
The kids club staff work very hard and all the kids love them, the same staff do the entertainment in the evenings, though I think it would be better for the hotel to get some outside entertainment in a few more nights as the night we show the Chinese acrobats was the best entertainment of the week we were there.
Loved the cocktails the hotel puts on from about 4.30 so you can just go and help yourself :)
Overall we had a great week in El Greco and in Ibiza, totally recommend this hotel and can't understand why its not No:1 for Portinatx, the down side till the hotel is too many steps they need to install a ramp (one that runs from the front of the hotel, round to the beach and back up by the pool would cure a lot of problems with families with buggy's!!), the wifi is to slow and only works in reception and also dinner starts a bit late at 6.45 these are the only down sides I found with El Greco other than that, it's a great hotel.
