“service and food in restaurant is awful!!!”
Reviewed September 19, 2007

Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Italy,we stayed in Hotel Portofino in Lido De Jesolo for the first week, this was an experience(not to be repeated)..the food in this hotel was disgusting, the steak tasted like chicken and visa versa, everything was cooked together i think, it was just awful, plus on several times the staff in the restaurant almost attacked me and my boyfriend for being a little late and for not choosing our meals correctly, then on one occasion one of the waitresses rang our hotel room and told us to come down to dinner, eh hello i didnt pay all that money to have some waitress take her bad mood out on me. I would NEVER stay in this hotel again. they didn't make us feel like we were on a holiday at all, everything about this hotel is substandard.
However we loved Jesolo and Venice, it was an excellent holiday destination and would go back again tomorrow (just not to hotel Portofino!!)

  • Liked — close to everything in Jesolo
  • Disliked — The service and food was awful, do not go half board
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled as a couple
