Amazing Place *****

What an amazing place to holiday- Could not fault anything! Staff were amazing (bar, reception and restaurant), location was great- literally on the beach, clean throughout the hotel, food and drinks were lovely- we even had a drink at the bar in the sea :)Travelled for Christmas and New year 2015 so the celebrations made it even more special. Would highly recommend the hotel to anyone, whether it be young/old couples, families, or those that like to holiday by themselves!Definitley will revisit at some point :)

Not coming back

The staff is horrible, i've asked for a coffee before starting to eat breakfast.. i finished breakfast and still no coffee! They didn't even apologize. I've booked 2 restaurants and the lady booked the reservations for the days the restaurants were closed. The reception lady still tried to help us but we were leaving the next day. Some food from the buffet was off and the sheets had wholes on it!! Not coming back..

El Portillo holidays

We spent one week in July/August two adults one kid. The beach is amazing. We had some problems in the thematic restaurants, specially at the italian restaurant. Very nice view from the beach buffet. Staff very friendly and willing to help but I was disappointed to see them waiting to be tipped every time we asked for something. Another negative point was that free Wifi is only available in the lobby, one hour a day and slow or it did not work at all. Animation teams very enthusiastic. However I will not come back.
