Just back from my first stay at the Hotel Spa Porta Maris. Usually stay next door at the Melia, so how do they compare? First it appears as though they were built at the same time by the same architect using the same materials. The rooms in both hotels are the same size and they have similar views, the rooms on the north have sea views, those facing south a view over the marina and the port. In the Porta Maris I had two (small) single beds which is common in Spain. The room was not well sound-proofed and I could noise from the corridor and the next room. The bathroom was functional and clean. However, the wifi was painfully slow and it made work impossible. The Melia is closer to town, so a slightly shorter walk, but it is likely to be noisier at busy times and on summer weekends. The Porta Maris was not busy in mid March and the breakfast buffet, although adequate, was not nearly as good as the Melia. The staff on reception do not seem as well trained or as professional as the Melia. Final verdict? The Melia just wins, but I would return to the Porta Maris if the price was right
