Gran Porto Recent Reviews?

Been reading some negative reviews about GPR recently (the beach, over-booking tactics, the food, the standard rooms, etc.)... I'm a bit worried that we made a mistake choosing this resort.

Any input? Thanks ...

I am heading to GPR on Sunday for a week......I have been reading the reviews for months and 99.99 % of them couldn't say enough good things about the place.

It's true the beach isn't that great right in front of the resort but the beach goes on forever in either direction and the view is still the same :)

If anyone looked at photo's of the resort and rooms;they would know that the standard rooms are just that.

This will be my 4th trip to the area.....1st time at GPR.......and am truly looking forward to spending an amazing week there............your vacation is what you make it and if you nit pick everything...then you will find fault in anywhere you go............so I wouldn't worry about your decision in the least.............you will have a great time......if that is your intention :0)

What are your expectations and reasons for choosing the GPR? It was perfect for us, but we are only in the room to sleep and get cleaned up from the beach. So Super 8 type rooms are fine with us and that is what the standard room is. The food and service is top shelf and we absolutely loved the location. If you are never leave the resort type people this isn't going to mean much to you. Food and drinks available 24/7 with room service included we thought it was absolutely the best.

So what are you looking for?

Take a deep cleansing breath and shack those jitters. You'll have a great time at the GPR.

Were those reviews from Brits? ;-)

what are you saying about the brits?? if you looked at the reviews you'll see that they are american and canadian mostly, only 1 brit in sight!!! 95% of the reviews are very good anyway, which is 1 reason - as a brit- why i booked this hotel. a few bad reviews don't bother me as some people just wannna moan about anything..
