We visited Porta Del Mare from February 19 - 25. Our trip was excellent. Claudia is very helpful. As you may have read in previous reviews Porta Del Mare is located right on the beach. The fact that house is located away from the hotels allows you to have a section of the beach all to yourself. However, if you want to people watch the hotels and restaurants are only a 20 minute walk (or 5 minutes by car) away. We had a one bedroom (1.5 bath), with a living room/ dining room, with a full kitchen. The accommodations are adequate. The room was clean. The bedroom could use a dresser. The shower had a little water leak and bathrooms could use better lighting fixtures. But over all we were very pleased. The grounds have 24 hour guard and we felt very safe. Furthermore, you can't beat the price. If you have a car be sure to visit the neighboring town of Sousa. I would recommend Porta Del Mare to my friends.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Porta del Mare is not only a place to stay, it's a place where atmosphere is a criteria. Everyone on site are super friendly and helpful. We are right in the middle of the Kitebeach action. Kitebeach area has grown a lot over the last few years and became a nice little community with where you can enjoy a nice healthy meal or a happy hour cocktail whilst enjoying the view of the Best Kiteboarder in the world. All our apartments have a balcony ocean front. We are 5 minutes away from the popular Surf Spot "Encuentro" and around 10 minutes walking distance from town. I strongly recommend our famous BBQ by the pool at sunset with fresh sea food coming from the fisherman next door... a MUST ! Our awesome staff will be happy to set it up for you so you can sit back and relax... Pleasure guaranteed! ... more less
