“For what it is not worth it...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

If you are a woman travelling alone or with a group of women do not stay at this hotel. You will get harassed by either male employees here or by other male guests and the staff won't do anything to protect you or keep your details a secret. Things will go missing from your room even if you use your safe. Completely overpriced. Beach is filthy and you have a choice of two pools. Better to find somewhere else. I changed my accommodation after staying there for two nights.

Room Tip: Rooms are quieter if you are on the beach side.

The Portemilio hotel is fine. Stayed for 6 days to attend a wedding close by. A bit tired, needs an update. No actual beach, but the pool was salt water and pretty big. Don't let the concierge rip you off with taxi prices, just go to the road!

The hotel it is close to the sea , in this area there is not beach around , but you have 2 swimming pool one outdoor and another indoor , the room it is big.. most of them have balcony. Around the hotel you can found restaurants , burgers, bars , etc, but you have to climb a very narrow road to found them. In the terms of Breackfast you have bread , orange juice , chese , cakes , fruits , etc.

Stayed there for three days on a business trip, the rooms clean and well furnished (desk is a little uncomfortable if ur planning to work). Bathroom is clean and room service are good.

The hotel offers free internet (not very fast but good enough for browsing and emails), they have their own taxi which offers good rates and there is a super market there which offers all what you would need.

They hotel also has a pool I havent tried it though but it looks nice.

Ovetall the hotel is good and clean would recommend it to anyone.

Stayed 3 nights there on my last trip. Since it is winter in Lebanon, apparently the locaion advantage became a disadvantage, Other than going to beach, there are not too much around unless you walk to shopping at Kaslik. The price is a bit expensive for it's old facility.

In my opinion, some of the reviews are unfair to the hotel. Granted, the hotel needs renovation, but apart from that, the environment is relaxing, staff are very helpful, they make you feel right at home. I would do it again, and recommend it to anyone looking for relaxation.

The hotel is located in front of the sea but unfortunately people do not swim there due to water pollution. There are several swimming pools to relax and sunbath though, as well as a pool bar with drinks and snacks.

The main disadvantage of the hotel is that it is located next to the Kaslik electric power plant, so no fresh air around!

On the other hand, the hotel stands there more like as a reminder of the great 70s, where I am pretty sure it would have been consider the most amazing place to be. In August (when I stayed there) the hotel enjoyed busy days, mainly families though.

Some nights there was some loud music, I assume from wedding celebrations often hosted at the restaurant by the pool.

I asked for the prices of the gym and I got a shock: if not mistaken, $70 for a month of 3 visits per week! Equipment old and neglected (rust was more than obvious) and the classes did not include any martial arts (even though they were advertised).

In Lebanon in general tipping is a must! You have either to tip for everything or wait and wait and wait...

At the very end if you come here to have fun you will! At least I did.

If you come here to relax and you wait for an ambient environment, Portemilio is not for you.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room. You have to walk a few stairs down more to go to the swimming pools but...
