The reception staff apologised on his behalf and said their boss was very stressed. Room with no view of sea was... More

The air conditioning didn't work. The problem is that when we, and several other people, complained about it they just said that it had been switched to heating and there was nothing they could do. It was the unwillingness to change or even enter into a dialogue that was the problem. It was too hot to sleep.

The hotel was far better than the pictures. Why they show you bathrooms galore beats me because the rest of the hotel is far better with good service and in a great location. Cleaning was outstanding and the breakfasts as good as anything you most of us will ever see. Only think that was poor was the pillow / bolster... More

The Porto Cristo is a delightful small hotel, a block back from the foreshore strewn with fishing nets. The building was previously apparently a wine merchant cum wine store hence the strong ceilings. The rooms are decent sized, the bathroom has a full sized spa bath and bidet. There is limited shopping but the supermarket has most general provisions and... More
