This time we were fortunate to be upgraded to a studio apartment in the Porto Mare Residence. As well as all the usual room facilities it had a small kitchen area with hot plate, microwave, good size fridge and a good supply of utensils. Although we were on a B&B rate this allowed us to prepare lunches and simple dinners in the room. We also had a private sun lounger area, as well as the usual balcony with a sea view. Although the room was excellent the real delight of this superb hotel complex is its great facilities (e.g. gym, sauna, five pools), as well as its stunning gardens with both native and exotic plants, all of which are labelled. The food in the restaurants is excellent but we would especially recommend the a la carte Med Restaurant where we enjoyed two superb meals. Probably the best part of this hotel complex is its superb staff who are all extremely friendly, as well as professional and efficient with exceptional language skills to deal with the various nationalities who visit. We cannot fault this hotel and will be returning again soon, as do the vast majority of its guests!!
