“Black Sea and Danube Delta, amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

There is a place which looks like heaven, it's called Gura Portitei, on the wild shores of Black Sea and the quite Razim Lake, which is part of the great Danube Delta. For weekend relaxation, it's perfect. Pay attention to the mosquitos, there are millions. Plus, in the night there is quite cold, so put an extra blouse in the luggage. If you don't want to take a swim in the sea, you can try the pool, for some extra money.

Regarding food, there is just a restaurant, the fish is quite good and fresh, brought from the Danube Delta, but the fries are frozen, the potatoes aren't very tasty, the vegetables are good, and definitely you have to taste the Portita salad, with garlic and tomato. No local drinks, just Heineken beer which is excellent.

There is no shop, so bring with you medicines and solar protection.

On Saturday night, there is a traditional show on the beach, some locals come to sing and dance traditional Russian songs.

Stayed May 2013, traveled with friends

I found this place by mistake. But once I was there with my wife I found out that is very relaxing and peaceful. You have the sea in front and the Danube's Delta in the back. So you can relax on the beach, play, swim or go foshing in the Delta. Also, the service is good. You hear the sounds of the waves..practically you are with the hutt on the beach.

Room Tip: You have multiple to choose from: hutt, on the beach with the sea in fron of your eyes and the sound...

The location of this place is great: direct on the beach, accessible only by boat (or a really long walk). The place is excellent for fishing and beach holiday (actually, there isn't much else you can do).
We had a room in one of the buildings and I got the feeling, that some maintenance work needs to be done and the cleanliness could be improved.
However, it is a nice location for summer vacation.

The place is accessible only by boat so a big plus because there are almost NO CARS (there is the border police 4x4 and the tractor for work of the complex). If you like fishing this is a very good place - you can live your wife and children by the sea and go on the lake in a boat to fish.
The rooms are a little expensive but you can stay in the camping little rooms directly on the beach or you can lay your tent on the beach also.
The food is good, the prices medium. There is a pool on the beach (we didn't use it), I don't know why you would go to the sea and swim in a pool.
The place keeps a traditional style, and that is very good (roofs from reed, wood decks, normal white plaster).
In the evening was a traditional folkloric music recital.
