Gran Bahia Principe el Portillo details

Thanks to its beachfront location, the Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo gives you instant access to activities like scuba diving and windsurfing.

The first thing you’ll notice about the Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo is its setting. It’s perched on a stretch of magnolia-coloured sand, and looks out over the mottled blue water of the Atlantic Ocean.

The hotel itself is made up of two-storey villas. Inside, the hangar-sized lobby is all high ceilings and white marble floors, while the bedrooms are elegantly dressed in tones of cherry, nectarine and apricot. Each room comes with a balcony or terrace, and the junior suites include their own whirlpool bath.

You won’t want to spend much time inside once you’ve seen what else is on offer, though. The pool is so large it comes with its own palm-dotted islands in the middle. And elsewhere, you’ll find a gym and a spa.

In terms of sports and activities, you can try windsurfing, snorkelling, kayaking and other watersports. You can also enrol on a PADI-approved scuba diving course for a little extra.

As for mealtimes, this place has four places to eat. Take your pick from a buffet restaurant or a gourmet, Italian and seafood à la carte eateries. Then you can while away the evening in one of the five bars. Alternatively, watch a live show or head to the disco.
