With an innovative concept, the Vila Porto Mare resort offers facilities which are shared by three hotels – Suite Hotel Eden Mar, Hotel Porto Mare and The Residence; however, the character of each one of these is guaranteed by individual receptions and different room/apartment types.
The resort offers Wi-Fi throughout the hotel (free in indoor public areas).
Some crockery was broken & cracked.
Staff were great, food incredible, and in May was very quiet even though lots of people around. No loud music or kids running around when enjoying relaxing at the pool.
The garden & pool areas Large room & bed Restaurants were really excellent
Poor shower pressure
The room was very spacious, great seaview, large balcony. Fully equipped with fridge, safe deposit box, robes, kettle etc. Cleaned every day to high standard. Excellent facilties - swimming pools, gardens, bars etc. Large range of entertainment. Only ate in one of the restaurants - Il Basilico which was very good. Huge choice for breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff at all times. The new manager Antonio introduced himself to guests individually and was very charming. Courtesy bus in to town was useful. Location is very good - not too far out of town, but plenty of good restuarants around, banks, post office, shops etc. Would definately go back again and highly recommend this hotel for older couples or families with very young children. Not for teenagers or older children though.
Bar prices are higher than in local restaurants, but you expect that in an hotel.
The facilities-spa, swimming pools and the comfortable sitting areas both in and outside the hotel.
One person at the reception area was quite unhelpful when I had requested a garden view room and was given a room with a 'building site' view. We subsequently got what we had requested which was lovely.
