What a brilliant hotel with everything you could want. Not sure where to start. Food and drink was amazing - so much choice even with all inclusive, especially cocktails! The food was delicious every day - our favourite was pizza guy with fresh pizza every meal and also the theme nights were great. Onto the entertainment - lots of shows, music and dancing- only very slight drawback is they finished quite early and the amphitheatre had no bar but you could carry drinks over with you. Hotel rooms were great, spacious and very clean. Cleaning each day was spotless. Pool was lovely - salt water and would have been better chlorinated but still good with plenty of sun loungers. Sea was a two min walk. The water park was across the road and absolutely BRILLIANT! ! The staff were so friendly and we were sad to leave them! What a great hotel - would recommend to anyone!

good evening one and all, i stayed at the hotels sister 5* porto bello royal earlier in the season, and then when a last minute deal came up to stay at the porto bello beach, i thought "oh go on then, youve twisted my arm" after having such an enjoyable stay there. now on previous holidays i have been accompanied by my long suffering wife, but this time, i left her at home and brought my 2 grandkids, as a treat for staying in school. we arrived early afternoon, and the weather was glorious. we were allocated a lovely pool facing room, and i would easily say the room could have accommodated a few of the local glow band sellers if they didnt have a room for the night. check was as smooth as a silver tongued 80's lothario, they took our passports, handed is the room key and showed us to our room, and i must say the girls on reception were fantatsic; vaso, lenka, dionisia, mariola and natasa were some of the friendliest people i have ever met, they reminded me of the spice girls in there heydey (ill tell you what i really want) i was cheeky enough to get a lift off jivko, the hotel porter, and i must say he is possibly the happiest man i have ever met, always smiling with a positive out look on life, and for any future guests, he collects coins, so if you have any english shrapnel left, give it him, as he has a collection from all around the world! the pool area was fantatsic, plenty of sunbeds and no need to worry about the people who set there alarms at 5am to get a sunbed, seriously, do you people not enjoy a lie in? the way i see it is that your tan will fade anyway, but a lie in on holiday is priceless! particularly enjoyed waterpolo and beach volley ball, a chance to dust off the old speedos and show my two grandsons that they will never be superior to me at anything. the restaurant at the hotel was fantastic, the food, on a scale of 1 to 17 was a 17! plenty of choice, perfectly cooked and it didnt suffer due to it being all inclusive. special mentions to vasillis, the restaurant manager, he reminded he of a previous mentioned 80's lothario, im glad i didnt bring my wife! always there to greet you and share a topical joke with you, i particularly enjoyed how he saluted me everytime i entered the restaurant, very professional. also, to a man id like to call pizza petey, the guy who made fresh pizzas every day, always had a smile on his face, and i enjoyed many conversations with him about the art of football. now the bars at the hotel is where this holiday has been better than a lot more ive been on. the choice of drinks was ridiculous. i wanted an ameretto, i got it. i wanted a red vodka. i got it. i wanted a cheeky cocktail. they made it. they literally had everything! i did see some of the more "un-educated" customers ordering 12 drinks at a time, going back to the table and consuming them whilst there kids ran havoc, the only down side on the whole holiday, if you want to take your kids on holiday, why not pay attention to them. im sure that facebook message can wait until they are asleep, and im more than certain the bar wont run out of beer so why not play with them for 5 minutes? i even saw one unruly child break one of the first choice boards whilst his mom was there trying to initiate a holiday romance, and she didnt even reprimand her child, she was took keen to get back to her new friend! but hey, the hotel cant be responsible for their customers! now the brand new waterpark at the hotel was a delight. was very quiet, the slides were fantastic, and being less than 58 steps from the hotel (yes i counted, but please bare in mind i am 6 foot 3 so step counts may vary) it was right on the door step. the slides were great, plenty to occupy not just myself, but both my grandsons, they had space bowls, racing lanes (summer 2014 holiday champ, unbeaten) vertical drops, boomerangs and a lazy river amongst others, definitely recommend it. yes the hotel is under a flight path, but 6 seconds of noise probably twice an hour makes no difference to anybodies holiday, and myself and a lot of other holiday makers made a game out of it, commonly referred to round the pool as airplane bingo, i highly recommend this game to anyone, highly addictive! one final mention has to go to the thomson/first choice rep at the hotel. despite being from dudley, dan was hands down one of the best reps i have ever met. friendly, conversational, managed to book and transport me to the dentist when my tooth was playing up and it is worth noting he had a tremendous beard! he was also always on hand to jump on a few of the 2 person slides with me at the waterpark with me if my 2 little ones were off with the new little friends they had made. (i will just add he his a birmingham city fan, but dont hold that against him) overall, id rate this an ideal hotel for future family holidays. top location, amazing waterpark, delicious food, thirst quenching drinks and irreplaceable staff! ive already recommended this hotel to all of the members of my "fans of phil collins" online forum, as well as to my son whos grandchildren i took with me. i didnt mention it to my other son as i dont speak to him anymore this hotel deserves 2 thumbs up, 3 golden stars, 8/8 and a yes from simon cowell and the x factor panel

The approach shows this hotel "resort" fully, (from the plane) as it sharply banks round. You fly in over the beach, then the beach bar, the rooms, then the pool, the main hotel, its car park, tennis court, amphitheater, and finally the splash park, before you clear the top of the ridge and land on the runway. If you like plane spotting you can record the plane numbers of every single plane from your sunlounger. Some fly a bit lower than others. Some are a little louder! Sit out on the hotel balcony for dining and you can continue your viewing, whilst digesting some very well cooked food. I used the word food for a reason. Everything is well cooked being kept warm, with the exception of salads, which can sometimes come with complimentary olive stones, but no actual olives! An unexpected surprise and good for the local dentist There are 3 alternative dining options on site that you have to book sharply at reception at 9am. 9.05am is too late. Food there is marginally better, with the lunchtime seafood bar being pleasant. The pool is the one and only. Music is laid on by the hotel at their chosen volume with chosen music type, which varies throughout the day from loud upwards. Sunbeds are all around the pool, but get out there by 11pm the night before if you want one, and look forward to getting very close to a total stranger, if they bother to use it during the day rather than just leave their towel there. Beach is slightly better with reservations by towel by 7am. You dont tend to smell your neighbour on these as you can walk between the beds here. Beach bar and main hotel restaurant serve the ice cream that's free and that you hope will pacify the kids with, as long as you can walk fast as its self served and is semi defrosted and is no where near the pool where you child can safely play. Strange that! But you can buy ice cream from the shop right near the pool! Its that same shop where you can buy RayBans for £12 & Dr Dre head phones for £18. Bargain. Saving in region of £100. Doubt the manufacturers would be impressed with these. Which brings into question other products. Would i buy the competitively priced sun tan lotion here. I prefer my skin intact personally rather than to take the chance. Wish we'd had noticed the jelly fish cream on sale beforehand. Too late after. Well you have to learn the hard way. If only we'd stayed up and put the towels out at 10pm then we would'nt have used the beach and gone into the sea, and...... well, the rest is history now. Very unpleasant at the time though. The rooms are simple. Nothing special. Having travelled europe and the world I would classify these as 2-3 star rooms. The aircon worked, so long as you like the sound of the coming and going of the sound of a hurricane. Least when you open your curtains and see the sun shining, you realise its not vile weather awaiting outside, but the air con. Weather was extremely hot being latter part of August. Everyone heads for the bars from 12-3pm. Now there's one thing i can say about the drink here. Its flows. But you'll never get drunk, not even slightly. 2 cocktails are my limit, usually, but here I could down 6 during lunch with no effect. Amazing. Found the same of the spirits in general. Strange that, eh?? Beer was not too much different either! Now lets talk about that splash park. Yes, as I said in my opening line, you leave the hotel, cross the large car park, pass the tennis court and amphitheater, and cross a road and up the steps and you're there. So you're going with the kids. But don't take any food or drink. Its not allowed. Its free entrance, but you need to buy your refreshments here. The slides are good, but no real sunloungers, just seats around the lower level pool. Some slides closed mid day during peak season, so who can say for the lower seasons/ less busy periods. The dining area was pretty much deserted. Least there were lift guards by the rides that were open. This holiday cost in the region of £500 more for our family of 3 than our previous similar type holiday, peak season in Fuerteventura. Lets say I'd happily go back there. As for here.... well I think you can work that one out!

Temperatures regularly reach 30° Celsius. during the summer months, but the waters are just perfect for swimming.
