Wish we were back there now!

Jan 2022 | BerryL24
The hotel was recommended to us by an acquaintance and we definitely owe him - it was all he said and more. The holiday was long awaited and sorely needed. The hotel is spotless cared for by a team of lovely housekeeping staff. Everything has been thought of to make the stay memorable. We requested a change of room with a better view and this was done immediately without hassle. The whole team outshone themselves at New Year for the fireworks - quite a feat if organisation. The grounds are pristine and the beds are extremely comfortable. Not a real “complaint”except that they could do with a bigger choice of ice cream and cream for the puds which were many and various. Would recommend to anyone and we will be going back.

Pre-Christmas Break

We stayed at Vila Porto Mare for a pre-Christmas break having been a number of times previously in the spring and summer. The stay was excellent as always and it was great to have the added bonus of all the lovely Christmas decorations.

A good and decent hotel

Generally speaking, the hotel is a good choice. Great location, beautiful garden, fine entertainment. Minuses: an average breakfast, bad sound insulation of the rooms. The surroundings of the hotel are very useful: many restaurants, shops, travel agencies, bus stations.
