We stayed towards the end of the season when our travel agent told us, the week before we were due to fly out, that our previous hotel had closed down. Porto Village is at the top of an hill, so if you need to shop you have to be fit. We went all inclusive and the food was repetitive and awful. We ate out on many occasions. They even ran out of butter one day, despite their being a Spar supermarket at the bottom of the hill! The only bar is outdoor at the pool side and it was cold there in the evening. There are no indoor lounge or bar facilities. Music from the bar played until 2:30am on our first night and this, and the compressor of the fridge at the bottom of my bed (which we later had to unplug!), kept me awake the first night. Most other nights it stopped about 12:30-1am There is solar power and so there was no hot water from the shower until the sun had come out, so we had to shower late afternoon. The all inclusive was very restricted and stopped at 10:30. Free coffee stopped at 8pm and drinking chocolate was not part of the all inclusive, neither was still orange in the evening. You have to finish one drink before you can have another and so, given the small plastic cups they served drinks in, we spent a long time doing to the bar. There was no tea and coffee in the room and no chairs to sit on, just the beds. On a positive note, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and there was free wifi in the reception area. They saved us a sandwich for when we first arrived, as it was late in the evening. It was not the hotel of our choice and we probably wouldn't stay there again. We had initially booked 5 star accommodation and ended up with what was supposed to be 3 star but it just didn't make the 3 star grade in my opinion. The whole place needs updating.
