in general you get what you payed for clean rooms and very helpfull staff would stay here again .its in a prime area close to the beach and to all shops are a 2 minute walk away.if you are bird happy the there are plenty of ducks which are a good laugh.

So....this is the second time we have stayed here. First being the year before in the April and recently end of October. I love these apartments. We had room 1610 absolutely amazing view watching the sunset of an evening, the location is great. You step out of apartments and have a 24 hr cafe opposite and restaurants too. The beach is also opposite and down a few steps and only about 20 mins from airport. If you ask for the block overlooking beach that’s where we have always stayed. The rooms are spacious and clean and have never had a problem. In the evening we walked out of hotel turned right and walked to end of road where the buses stop and ate at El Padrino (think that’s what it’s called) and had a lovely Italian meal pasta and pizza are great! If you walk around the bay there are a few bars, we went to Stepps karaoke bar a few times and that was a laugh. Will defo return to these apartments and would recommend them. Thanks for accommodating us in the room we requested, I had a lovely holiday xxx

I have just returned from a stay at the Portofino Apartments, my wife and I are regular travellers to Santa Ponsa and would not book anywhere else. The Apartments are lovely and clean with great views of the bay, what more could you want ? I cannot understand anybody who criticises this place, it is fantastic !! The staff who manage the Apartments , Sari and Maria, could not be any nicer, they are always asking how you are and is everything is to your liking. I have already booked our flights to Majorca for August 2018 and there are no prizes for guessing where my wife and I will be staying. Trust me, if you are staying in the Santa Ponsa area, this is the place to stay. See you all in August 2018. Regards Stan Montgomery

I had booked this apartment for us and another couple and was a little worried when reading the reviews about getting moved as I had short listed this side of the bay. Luckily we were placed in the Portofino block and couldn’t have been happier, the position was great, the apartment was huge with everything you needed. The negative reviews about getting to the other block and pools were blown out of proportion, you walk through reception across a courtyard and then up in the lift, then your at the pool! We ate out every night and found Chinese Good Taste was fab, The Watering Hole for breakfast was spot on... Fat Sams American diner was also great. As we visited towards the end of September it was nearing the end of season but we managed to catch Total Recal in The Square for a great sing a long before it shut for the end of season, I imagine this place is buzzing in peak times this area seems to be where it’s much more lively which is perfect as it is within easy walking distance from Portofino. The location right on the beach was great, there was a lot of students on the site when we were there but it didn’t impact on us and as the bedrooms are at the back any noise isn’t heard, you pay a small returnable deposit for the air conditioning remote as in most places. The only slight gripe was the balcony didn’t get any sun clearly the management have no control over this,the beds were a bit hard and the cleaner popped in twice during our stay and by popped in I literally mean came in left clean towels and went again, never made a bed or swept a floor, where this wouldn’t sway my decision to return I do like having my bed made for me on holiday.... all in all the four of us loved the place, apartment location short flight from the UK beautiful beach and still warm sea to swim in and would definitely recommend it and consider returning..

stayed from the 5th to the 14th oct. having read some bad reviews before travelling I was a bit nervous before arriving. there was no need to worry. we were in room 5010 which overlooked the front of the building with amazing views over the bay. the apartment was really spacious and had everything we needed. Santa Ponsa beach was lovely and just across the road will lots of good bars and restaurants in the area. I would definately return, We had a fab holiday

Just back from these apartments did not know what to expect after reading other reviews but they were ok. We had 1 bedroom apartment and it was big the lounge area especially. There were 2 pools but you needed to be brave to go in as they were freezing!! Great location with the beach right opposite. A lot of places closed or closing due to end of season. Good places to eat too.

Just back after a ten night stay and cannot believe the negative reviews this hotel in our experience for what we paid was perhaps one of the better holidays we have had and we are away three times a year and have some hotel experience the apartment was very large had every thing you needed with a large balcony very clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful also the receptionists were great explained everything to us on arrival. we had a lovely view of the beach from our balcony as we were on the 5th floor we could see across the bay location was great had everything you needed also a large supermarket just a 10 minute walk away we will return to this hotel again without a doubt fabulous place.

There have been a number of negative review recently regarding the portofino we just returned after a weeks holiday with 7 in our party, we have stayed at the apartments for many years now and have never had any problem with the accommodation or the staff who we have always found very accommodating and attentive, in fact they have always gone out of their way to ensure any reasonable request is satisfied, the location is great the rooms are spacious and have been upgraded recently there’s really nothing to fault, we would like to thank Sari, Maria and all the staff for looking after us and hope to visit again soon, please don’t be put off by the comments recently posted the apartments are excellent as are all of the staff, great holiday as always

Arrived at Hotel to be told there was no room for us despite having booked in March and fully paid ,very rude receptionist no help at all ,moved us to sister Hotel ,no manger to speak to,unavailable until next day ,sister Hotel a disgrace be very vary of booking this hotel,

This hotel has great sized rooms, we came with our 10 month old daughter who loved running around the spacious lounge. The beach is right across the road with crystal clear water which was great for taking our daughter in, there are lots of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance and if you venture to the other side of the beach (about 10 min walk) there are lots more shops, restaurants and bars. Staff were brilliant and extremely helpful all the time, hotel was kept very clean and tidy, would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.
