Friendly staff and a fantastic view from the roof. The spa was a great way to relax and enjoy the weekend. As was the food and drink, that came with staff that knew what they were doing. The rooms were a good size, with comfortable beds. Looked very clean and tidy. The only problem I found here was that there...

Porto Palacio is located half way between the beach and the city centre; good location but not walking distance to either. The hotel is in need of a face lift (renovation) and in its currents state should not be advertised as a five-star hotel. I had a twin room on the fifteenth floor with a nice view, with a separate...

Stayed Here for a week central from either the beach or city centre. On welcome the concierge with light coloured hair was excellent on grabbing our bags and had great spoken English and conversational skills. The bed was huge and the rooms beautiful. Most nights you come back to find a lovely clean room and a chocolate on your pillow....

The hotel was clean and elegant with spacious rooms. I would expected a coffee machine for a 5 star hotel but there was not. You should enjoy a nice glass of wine at the roof garden.

A nice chiice for a business stay. I liked the breakfast and the vallet parking (in additional price). The room was decent and clean. Great view from the roof garden bar!

Upon arrival at the hotel, the Bellboys were very attentive and assisted from the car, unloading the luggage and taking it to the rooms. The reception gave a warm welcome and gave a very good impression upon arrival. Unfortunately the rooms and especially the housekeeping did not correspond to a 5* hotel. The cleanliness of the rooms was questionable. There...
