This hotel was good, now is a madness, from the security guard until reception, people does not know anything about the hotel! Around this hotel you can find a lot of hotels, if you want to have a good trip, run away from this hotel! Very bad experience!

Stayed here with my other half, was a very good price. Ok it's not a plush hotel but it's clean and the food is average-good. Plenty of it and the beer is cold and in bottles which for me was a good thing. Think this Hotel would be a good choice if you came with kids. Private beach is very... More

It was some time ago, many things could change since that time. But when we were there, it was absolutely perfect. A wonderful beach, friendly staff, good food and all the related al inclusive services. We enjoyed night bars where waiters did not take care about the amount of rum in your drink :-). Every day, there was a perfect... More

This is lucky to be called a 3 1/2 star. We spent 2 weeks at this resort. The food was terrible. All 4 family members became sick. They do not believe in purified water and most of their salads etc are washed in the same un-purified water. I would never every return here.

I stayed at Portofino complex it was terrible. The toilet could not flush, shower had no hot water, had to make a deposit of 200 B's for a remote control for the TV and towels for the Beach and pool. I will not recommend the hotel to anyone.
