We ( 12 of us ) decided on Portavadie on the recommendation of one member of our group as she has had a number of wonderful stays here.
This was a weekend away to celebrate the forthcoming retirement of one of our group. It lived up to all expectations.
The executive lodges are very well equipped and have every home comfort. The outlook from the sitting rooms lovely even in dreich weather.
We visited the leisure complex and were brave enough to go out to the infinity pool and hot tub. Well worth the experience. The views are amazing and the water was lovely and warm.
Everything throughout the complex is very clean and well maintained. The staff friendly and helpful throughout our stay.
During our meal in the restaurant on the Saturday night, the restaurant manager and his staff went the extra mile to ensure we had a great night. At the end of the evening they presented a bottle of fizz and cake to our guest of honour. That was a very nice gesture and much appreciated.
The general consensus at the end of the weekend was that we will definitely go back.
Top marks Portavadie. You've got a great team.

We stayed in a Studio. It was fairly spacious and overlooked the ferry terminal. Not a great view but interesting when the ferry came in.

Studio -
Bed - Not the comfiest but ok for two nights.
Shower - Good.
Kitchen - Plenty of crockery, glasses etc.
Cleanliness - The studio was very clean.

Facilities -
Spa - fantastic. Indoor, outdoor, infinity, jacuzzis, kids pool,saunas, gym etc.

The Spa was very quiet when we used it, very enjoyable.

Eating -
We only ate in the pub restaurant which was fine. Not expensive, nice staff. There is a posh restaurant which due to having a baby with us, we didn't try.

The complex is a little spread out although nothing is more than 5 minutes away from each other.

Can recommend esp. if you get it on a midweek deal. More than worth it.

We had a truly lovely stay. We had a superior lodge room. Great size and very comfy beds with the added bonus of a balcony. Staff were great in all areas, but particularly in the Marina Restaurant, thanks to the guidance of Richard. Food was delicious in both the Marina Restaurant and Lodge Restaurant and very nicely presented. Fabulous service also from Stephen at the Spa. Nothing was too much trouble. Lorraine provided a blissful treatment. Ishga seaweed bath and express massage. Will definitely be back before the end of the year!

The apartments were spectacular and spotless. Everything was of a very high standard. We booked the interconnecting apartments that slept 10 and an apartment that slept 4. We were advised, by the very helpful staff at reception, that this would be the best way to accommodate our group of 14. They were spot on!

The leisure facilities were outstanding! If you have to go in a gym, the views from the treadmill were spectacular. Due to the amazing sunshine, we opted to watch the sunset from the outside heated infinity pool and hot tubs. I'm running out of superlatives!

The local scenery is worth walking into. Take your walking gear.

The meal at the restaurant used local ingredients and were delicious. The staff were attentive and went that wee bit extra to look after our group.

A wee hidden gem! I'm not sure I should have written such a glowing report, as I will go back and want there to be apartments free!

Enjoy!

Myself and my partner stayed here with my partner for a couple of nights and we both really enjoyed the experience. The location is outstanding and away from everything but the hotel itself has a lot going on should you want it. Portavadie is clean and modern and has everything you would want from a short break away from it all. We enjoyed meals in the Lodge, Marina and Spa Restaurants and were all were very good. Particularly enjoyed the fresh seafood. However what made the holiday was our trips to the Spa. This Spa is spotless and the staff were all so attentive and friendly and in particular Stephen who time to explain everything to us and answer any questions we had. We will definitely be back with the family sooner rather than later.
