Just returned from a week at the Ponta Grande. Travelled as 2 adults, a 9 year old and a 12 year old. The nearby beach is beautiful and within walking distance, but you really needed to cab to the harbour and old town. Here os my only grumble cabs! A return cab from old town taxi rank is 5 to...

Spent 2 weeks here in August with family. Really lovely with excellent facilities & friendly staff. Onsite restaurant is really good & great value . It's a little too far from Albuferia to walk but not too expensive in a taxi. Highly recommended for families

Lots of plusses and a couple of minuses which I'll deal with at the end. The room was clean, with a basic yet large kitchen and living areas and the balcony private. No noises from the neighbours intruded. Food at the restaurant, which is not part of the hotel btw so don't book B&B or half board as it'll be... More

I didn't stay here but visited with family a couple of nights. Friendly, helpful staff, super prices on food and drinks. The G&T's are my kind of size and the pepper steak was sized for Britain's strongest man and was absolutely delicious. They also offer great entertainment and a superbly paced 3 course meal with a fish main each evening.... More

On the surface the resort looks good and the villa was nice. A serious niggle was the amount to be charged for Wi-Fi which was supplied by renting a dongle type gismo, this would have been in excess of €45 for the two weeks, on agreeing to pay this I then found out they didn’t have one available until the...

We stayed here with our 3 children in Jul 2016 and would highly recommend it. Our villa had 2 bedrooms and was excellently equipped. The only drawback was the a/c wasn't working in the living room (although to be fair we didn't bring it to the receptions attention) but was fine in the two bedrooms. Also the main bedroom had...

Beautiful villas, very clean and spacious cleaned regularly. Fully equipped kitchen. Pool area fab no shortage of sun beds. Would recommend a car as a good 40 minute walk into old town. Beach across the road a good ten minutes walk.

Table was dirty and the waitress made no attempt to wipe prior to putting 2 unclean table mats down on the table. Service is slow due to only 2 staff !

We had a week in the resort early May and was very pleased. Although the villas are a little dated and in need of some refurbishment it was really good. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. I would recommend this resort.
