                                              I'll never set my foot there again and I'll never recommend that place to anyone. No TV or radio. Aircon licking, stove falling apart, pool dirty.No value for money. What a waste of my money!!!I feel like crying. Standard is below average

                                              Gate remote control is needed for the guests, DSTV needs to be installed in the rooms and myb the latest TV screen will make it perfect

                                              Our room was damp and smelled musty and damp and there was no airflow. The linen was old and there were no coffee sachets and only Cremora was available. No breakfast is offered even though it is mentioned on the website. I would not stay there again.

                                              My stay was absolutely amazing. The security was on point and I felt safe. The unit was well appointed and fully equipped. It was a lovely experience and I would stay there again.

                                              Sometimes photographs understate an establishment and you are pleasantly surprise when you see the actual product.Portofino guest house is the opposite.Disappointing!My wife and I stayed in room 3.The room was shabby and the shower room condition was unacceptable.The towel rail was broken and left on the floor as was the toilet roll holder. I pointed this out to Nicole, who immediately blamed maintenance, but did not offer to have it repaired.The cold tap for the shower was either on or off with no possibility to regulate the flow.The window in the shower room did not open.The carpet in the...
