Beautiful hotel
This is our third stay at Porto Mare, and its just as good as we remember. Spacious and clean rooms, lovely breakfast buffet, great facilities for adults and kids. Our two year old especially loves the pools and playground.

Fabulous Resort.
Stunning interior with magnificent gardens and pool area. Staff all very professional and friendly. Great choice for breakfast and change of theme if you want to eat in the evening. Happy hour a bonus and entertainment in the bar was really good. Great location - a gentle walk (no hills) into town in about 30/40 minutes plus bus stop located just outside the main entrance with regular service.
