“Brit's Bar!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

Bit of an 'ex pat's' bar!!! Quite friendly! Shows most of the Sport !the majority of the folks that frequent the place are those who are 'here for the season!!! '
They all feel they're 'locals'!! A little cliquey if you're a new comer!
As far as the adjoining restaurant is concerned...it's not inviting! It's dark, dull and rarely more than 2 couples in there!! The food is ok, but there is no atmosphere!! It could be so much better!!! It could be heaving if made more appealing!!!

“EXCELLENT SERVICE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

You need ac coscktail and a nightcap before and after your lovely dinner at Portofino, just drop in here. You will never forget it.

The barment are just great and ready to serve. Prepare your own drinks and they will make it for you. The location is most ideal although as pedestrians you better carry a torchlight. Good luck and good fun.

“Aug budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Well we used to go here when college. Was a nice place to hangout and fits the price. Good place if u are running tight on budget. Has swimming pool and rooms facing the same.

This hotel is very near to the beach and walkable distance to many places.
