8 OF US 40-50 YEARS FRIENDS JUST RETURNED HOME FROM eL PORTILLO.We had a wonderful trip. Resort is small does not matter where your rooms are 5 minuete walk from everything. Some rooms have nicer views than others. We are not fusy we don't spend much time in the room. Typical Bahia rooms everything you need. Everything clean. Safes are tricky we thought ours didn't work for a couple of days but ask the manager at the front desk there is a trick to there use. Staff are very curteous you may need to speak with a manager over any important issues they speak excellent english. We all loved the food, hot, plentiful, good variety. We loved the italian not so crazy about the gormet. Wine lovers said the red was ok sweet but palitable. Beach bar, Pool bar excellent service, good drinks. Not so with the lobby bar. Very slow. Inconsistant drinks we couldn't pay for a good Mohito. We brought our own Baileys. They stick to there pay for premium liquor policy. Drinks which have been included in the other 5 Bahia's are charged here and many of them they do not have just empty bottles displayed on the bar. If you have a go to drink you may want to pick up some at the duty free. If you feel like getting off the resort. GO TO ONE LOVE! It was the super bowl while we were there so we took a cab in to one love in Las Terranas. Terry ( Canadian) has a lovely little spot on the beach with big screen Tv"s showing all the major sporting events. Football, Hockey UFC to name a few. We had a great night. If you go in definetely try there chicken wings fries and poutine. All eight of us are still talking about that food. Only regret we didn't go back for more. The Zip lining, whale watching tours were a hit amongst our group as well. Last but not least. Cuba, myan riveria,Bavaro beach have nothing on this beach. You can walk forever and it only gets more and more beautiful. We will return. Good value for your vacation dollars. Feel free to ask questions and have a great vacation!
