Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Water, soft drinks, beer and house wine with lunch and dinner. Soft drinks and local alcoholic drinks 11.00-23.00.
Sandwiches and selected ice-cream 11.00-13.00 and 15.00-17.00. Afternoon tea 17.00-18.00.
Family rooms sleep up to 3 adults and 2 children up to 12 years, with a double bed, bunkbeds and an extra bed. They come with a flatscreen TV with limited channels, a cooler* and tea and coffee facilities.
Stayed here for a week all inclusive on a last minute deal from Thomson in October 2015. For the price we paid it was excellent value, the facilities were all very clean, the room was spacious enough for 3 of us (me, the wife and our 4yr old).
The food was at the better end of all inclusive. Plenty of choice each day and all cooked fresh. The breakfasts were a hit with the 4yr old. We had a day trip to the flea market on the other side of the island which was a nice trip out, the buses run from the shops on the other side of the hill, they are very reasonable and doesnt take too long to get to other area's of the island. As others have said, the hill is a bit on the steep side, but good for walking off any afternoon beers and breakfast/lunch.
The kids pool around the back of the hotel is great, kept plenty of youngsters entertained. We went just before half term in the UK and there was no entertainment as the staff had all finished for the season, but there was music for them all to dance around to.
I would come back to the hotel without a moments hesitation.More
Ok hotel, does the job
We had booked this as a cheap holiday so we're not expecting the Ritz. It was just me and the hubby and it was fine for us. Pretty basic rooms, ours was overlooking the car park and over looked by trees, so we had no sun whatsoever. I will warn you of everything you have to pay for. The safe for the week was â¬27.50 plus â¬10 returnable deposit. I though this was pretty steep, don't think I've paid that much before. There is also a fridge which will cost you the same price if you wanted it. We decided not! Every hotel I have stayed at have tea/coffee making facilities in rooms but there was none in this hotel. There was also no information as to any of this and no info was given on booking in. It was only after having a look around that a price list was on reception desk further on down. There is a long list of things they charge for, ie iron, etc..
Breakfast was fine, the usual English breakfast items, continental items and cereals etc. evening meals where ok. We were half board and ate here about 4 times during the week. Good thing us if you wanted to change your evening meal to lunch time you could. Someone else mentioned there us a lot of veal on menu, which there was. The food was ok. I have had better. We went to the bar one evening for a drink and had wine served in plastic glasses. I realise in the day around the pool with children running around is fine, but an evening at the bar I think is a no. Especially as we are paying customers. I'd rather go down to the front and have a nice view and a drink. Other than that I must say that the area is stunning, really peaceful and chilled.More
First time family all-iner
Just returned from a superb 1 week stay at the hotel presidente!!! Our only criticism would be that the hotel in some parts could be renovated / modernised (lick of paint, wifi in all areas etc). The children's entertainment, pools and soft play are spot on and made the holiday especially the pirate splash pool and the hotel entertainment staff. Another really good point is the food as all tastes are catered for and the amount of freshly cooked seafood was impressive and the kids enjoyed sampling all the different foods (most of all the puddings :) ).
Hotel staff are all really friendly and the cleaners are the hardest working I have seen in any hotel.
Really would recommend to all
And if you do run out of anything check the swap box as it will almost certainly be there ;)More
Great family holiday!
We just returned from this hotel presidente yesterday! We had a lovely week!!
Bad points first, the transfer was horrific... It states 40 mins from airport but is the last drop off so takes more like 1 hour 40 mins. You have to pay 3 euros per day for fridge hire along with 10 euro deposit( not breaking the bank but I think this should be free) we struggled a bit with the food, although were quite fussy there was plenty of choice but a bit of a mish mash of things that don't go together. The snacks consist of chips and ham and cheese and bread.
The hill down to the beach and shops/restaurants is a KILLER!! Especially if you walk it a couple times a day. The hotel pays no attention to special requests such as low floors or specific views.... I must insist that you prepare yourself to pay 5euros per day extra when u get there to get a sea view room as it is 100% worth it!!! Great pools, especially the splash park for little kiddies ( mine are 6 and 2 and looooved it) make sure you take plenty of suncream with you as we run out half way through and ended up costing us 50 euros to buy 2 more bottles in the local supermarket. Vincent's bar and delboys bar are great fun if you want a change and the Chinese overlooking the beach is very very well priced and yummy. Don't fear the bunk beds as the hotel will supply you with full sized bed guards. The entertainment was fantastic for the kids and the man and lady who work tirelessly day and night as sooo full of energy with the kiddies, great shows such as magician, parrot show and double d's are worth watching. Portinatx is a very pretty place and has plenty to do, don't be put off by its reputation of being quiet, great for families and couples, not soo suited for youngsters tho. Overall the hotel is very clean and the maids and all staff were brilliant, I would Deffo return but next time id take a taxi instead of bus to/from the airport. Thank you hotel presidente for a lovely holiday. The Vaughan family. More
Comfortable friendly hotel
I have just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel.
It is set in a convenient position overlooking a small bay and sandy beach although people with walking difficulties should be aware that the area generally has some steep slopes and many steps.
The hotel is charming and friendly and although some areas could do with a lick of paint and a bit of a makeover this is more than made up for by the cleanliness of the hotel both in the public areas and the rooms. The reception staff are courteous, friendly, and informative with in most cases a very good command of English. The cleaning staff are also friendly and very efficient and will always offer a cheery greeting.
The restaurant offers buffet style dining and there is a good range to suit all tastes and the food is of a good quality with some variations in the dishes offered.More
