i went with the personality of expecting the worst of this hotel because of some of the reviews i had read but it was nothing like what i expected.of course its not better than la gunar mar but it was worth the money. there was 3 pools ,2 resturants and 1 snack bar.the food was ok,if u like like spicy food u will not enjoy it,the snack bar had stuff like hot dog,,fries,chicken etc.in the resturant you will get a wide variety of desserts,not ice cream though,food was basically the same each day whick included,fish,garlic chicken( real failure),rice,broccoli,cheese,pastelle,fruits such as carrots,pine apple,theres fresh salad with every meal,for breakfast,toast,boil egg,sausages,alot of pastries,theres also a theatre that where shows was held,,after the shows the clubs would open where they obviously play spanish music and some alternative english music.the place was very clean,both interior and exterior,pools lock off @ 6pm though,snack bar opens till 1am.you can get 18bs to 1us from any vendor on the beach but this is illegal and dont change ur money on the streets.they may be fake.also dont think about reaching to PMV 1hr or 2hrs before because it does actually take about 2 1/2 hrs to check in.oh the hot water comes on when it feels like it,the rooms got really moist and cold,,not sure what kept causing the wetness on the floor and walls.day and night the rooms was very very cold,,felt like my brains was freezing up,theres a bar on the beach with chairs and some stores where u can get some last minute beach clothes and bags.what more shall i share from my magarita experience at portofino,oh yes the shopping @ polamar and flea market was ok,,but the mall sublima or something so was great,sketchers,victorias secret,mac, etc and mac donalds was great,70 bs for two big mac combo ,i could live vene yes,,great experience.
