Great location, lots of great restaurants nearby. We were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment which was huge!! Great facilities at the hotel, we used the sauna/steam which you have to book in advance and is 5 euros per person. The gym has both cv machines and weights. We did the yoga on Saturday with Mercedes which was great. Lovely indoor and outdoor pools.

We have visited the Residence for 17 years but feel that standards have fallen . Compared with other hotels in the area the resort seems out of date. Covid seems to be a coverup for closures and movement of staff .

I have stayed in many of the world's best hotels. The Waldorf Astoria, New York, Raffles, Singapore, The Metropole Hanoi, etc. All great hotels, for sure. But Porto Mare is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. From the quality of the premises, the beautiful gardens, the ambience of the rooms, the high quality of the food, the cleanliness and top class maintenance, and, most importantly, the superb and kind staff. All of them made us feel welcome and went out of their way to be helpful and thoughtful. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
