"Great Fun for the whole family…"
We travelled to this hotel in June 2013 which is a great month when travelling with small children as temperatures are about 24c and you avoid the crowds of July and August. The hotel is family friendly and has a Thomson run entertainment programme for families with poolside fun and kid clubs from creche onwards creche costs 11 euros per hour. They have a soft play area and also a childrens fun splash pool which is brilliant for the babies and tiny tots our little one absolutely loved it. Thomson the dog frequently goes around and hosts shows and a childrens disco. The restaurant caters for the little ones too with a childrens buffet and what I really liked was the mothercare highchairs so nice and comfortable and even they provided hotel bibs a nice touch all the families with small children can sit in a special area if you wish near the childrens buffet.. The hotel has the option of being half board or all inclusive. On reception you will find Emma who is English and so helpful she has lived in Portinax for years so she can help you with anything you want to know and she always has a smile on her face nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are basic but clean and TVs come with ITV and Cbeebies an added bonus also tea and coffee making facilities so you dont need to bring your kettle hairdryers are also provided. Whats also really great is the toys around the hotel my little one often jumped into a little tikes coupe or a ride on or two and there is also a useful swap box where you can often find lots of beach toys and other bits and pieces which you can help yourself to its a great idea helping other families and you can leave all your books and beach toys before you leave .The beach at Portinax is beautiful and only a short walk from the hotel downhill or through the hotel El Greco and down their steps the water is clean and shallow and with lovely soft white sand. It was also the setting for those who may remember the film South Pacific. All in all a great family holiday to remember.
