Generally not one to return to a holiday destination twice, Porta Del Mar changed all that. My family and I returned there this year in August,with 22 family and friends in tow, to finally tie the knot after 19 years.We had the most fabulous two weeks and a magical wedding day that was perfect in every way. Entirely stress free preparation both prior to arrival and during the eight day run up to the wedding.I just wish that I could relive the experience!
The family Rigas,Tasos,Pavlina,Kostas and Eleni are accomodating in every way and they are true professionals in every sense of the word and considered friends too. The venue has been tastefully developed since our first visit and there are lots of nooks and crannies to lose oneself, although peaceful and secluded there is still plenty to keep even the young and active occupied and we were still discovering new tavernas even on our last evening.The review would not be complete without a mention for George the cook, who has helped to expand the gastric delights on offer in traditional fayre-something in which he takes great pride! Porta Del Mar we salute you.
