I had read the great reviews on the es puet blanc apartments and was expecting great things. However, although there are some good things about the apartments (cleanliness, kitchen area, downstairs restaurant) there are also a few bad ones that definitely need consideration.
Myself, my wife and my two young children (3 and 5) stopped for one week in the last week of august. As expected the weather was hot, but unfortunately so was the apartment. With no air con we simply could not get cool at night. We rented a big fan from the owners which helped the girls get to sleep at night, but did little to keep us all cool. We slept with all of the windows open and the patio door open, but there was no relief from the heat. We asked Maria for a second fan but she said she had run out. If you're used to the comfort air con gives, then avoid es puet blanc.
The other problem we had with our room was with ants. When we arrived there were hundreds of ants in the apartment, little black ones that had a go at biting you, but certainly didn't hurt like a red ant bite may. We had to buy an insect spray and used it daily to control them. Any scraps of food left around would quickly attract the ants which is probably why they make such an effort keeping the apartments clean. But even so, more should be done to control the problem.
Portinatx as a resort was disappointing for us. We enjoy eating out and expected to find a couple of gem restaurants in the resort. Unfortunately, if you want authentic Spanish food then this is not the place for you. Tapas? Not here I'm afraid.
I would describe the resort as Spain 15 years ago. Some people love the unchanged nature, but we prefer to not have to choose between paella, spag Bol, lamb chops, steak etc night after night whilst watching football on plasma tv's.
On the plus side the beaches are lovely, as is the sea.
The pool at es puet blanc was also clean and we could always get sun beds, although the parasols are in need of replacing as most lean at strange angles and fall over at the first sign of a breeze.
In summary, we knew what we were getting when we booked es puet blanc. It is good value for money and it is well positioned in the resort, but It needs air conditioning and it needs some money spending on it.
Also, If portinatx didn't have a large all inclusive hotel at each end of the resort, then it may attract a higher quality of restauranteur.
