My perfect Greek Wedding

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 12, 2016via mobile
Thank you to all the porta del mar team for helping us organise and provide the most perfect wedding. We spent a whole week with 30 of our closest friends and family relaxing in this gorgeous rustic understated beach resort, where we had the whole place to ourselves. Nothing was too much for tasos, kostas, pavelina, Heleina or Anna, and they all worked so hard to make our week perfect! The food was AMAZING! Best Greek food- kostas's mousaka, the zucchini balls, prawn seranaki, backlava, mixed meze, all fantastic! We loved all the cocktails...especially the mojitos!
There were so many places to chill and sunbathe, but being such a quaint resort everyone was close by and got to chat and hang out with each other all day.
Highlight of the week (apart from our wedding) was our boat trip. Tasos organised three boats and private chartered a trip for us all to the blue caves and surrounding coves and beaches. It was fantastic!
Our wedding itself was easy to organise with tasos and pavelina's help. From everything related to paperwork, registrars to decoration and flowers. If you want a simple chilled wedding and are happy to go with the flow then porta del mar is perfect for you. You couldn't ask for a better location by the sea, or a more exclusive special place to have your wedding day.
The whole week was truly magical, and filled with lots of happy, treasured memories! We cannot wait to go back for our anniversary!
Thank you all

Dear eveaj,
I have no words to express my thanks to you personally but also to your husband and all the rest of your group.
Occupying all our 8 villas gave you all the "freedom" to enjoy the most your wedding/holiday in our small resort.
Kostas and his team in the residence restaurant did really his best to offer you the genuine greek cuisine by using the most fresh ingredient, as always. Very happy that you liked it!
Yes, organising a wedding, including paperwork, is not a problem at all. Pavlina is specialising in decorations , Kostas in catering and myself in the paperwork plus translations. No need for the so called "wedding coordinator".
It was also very nice the Regata with the three boats, swimming all together in those remote beaches and then lunching in that small fish tavern!
Thank you again and surely we will see you again son!

    Reviewed July 12, 2016

    Found via the internet, wanted to do something extra special for my girlfriend for her birthday. Only saw a few pictures online (many were not ready until the end of that month - as it was new).

    I decided to call and ask if we could have dinner in a special location with a few extras. To my amazement they were incredibly helpful and took the entire process out of my hands. After explaining what i wanted they gave me every option from hand made jewelry to a firework display which they would arrange.

    Along side the amazing food offered and a very warm and hospitable environment with even the owner and the waitress singing happy birthday to my girlfriend whilst carrying her personalised cake to our private balcony decorated with rose petals from the top of the stairway to the table overlooking nothing but the sea at Zakynthos's best location to watch the sun set. (A* boyfriend)

    I chose to have handmade jewellery made for her which they allowed her to change if she wanted, however it was not needed.

    Would highly highly recommend as a great place with amazing food and even better staff all at a very reasonable price. They go above and beyond to ensure that the location looks amazing and is personalised to your needs.

    Dear Martina,
    It makes us really happy to read so nice comments!
    Food is a very important element for your perfect holiday and we have taken it very seriously: using mostly organic vegetables, our own extra vergin olive oil, many locally produced feta cheese, meat, poultry, fish and fruits make our greek menu really special.
    As a family-run place , we love to be of a help to our guests and recommend the best for them.
    Thank you again and we will hope to visit us again soon!

    Wonderful location, beautiful place, good food, excellent service, very nice people. A little piece of paradise. A quiet place that we already miss - and where we will return. I would recommend it for holidays with kids, but also for a romantic journey with the one you love.

    Dear Anca,
    Your review makes us feel very happy and on the other hand makes us to feel even more responsible towards our guests! We try our best to maintain high standards in all that make a lovely holiday: comfortable sleep, authentic, tasty and fresh food and light entertainment. Especially, I liked seeing you all sitting in the long table under the mulberry tree and enjoy the Pizza evening with a ice cold draught beer from Kostas restaurant.
    Thank you again and hope to see you all again here!
