Great family accommodation across the road from Dicky Beach. Ocean views from our two bedroom apartment. Kids love the pool and we love the downstairs access to a variety of restaurants and a bottle shop. Morning at the beach, middle of the day by the pool and back to the beach in the afternoon - what could be better. Basic...

What an amazing and relaxing stay we had at Portobello. Brilliant customer service from the friendly staff and the location was unbeatable: Restaurants, takeaways, cafe's, IGA and BWS right downstairs and the beach was just across the road. The apartment was neat and clean and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed in a very spacious two bedroom apartment and...

We chose Portobello as we are not highrise and commercial spots when holidaying. We stayed in a one bedroom spa room on the top floor - 3rd floor. Our room overlooked the pool, had a verandah and was so well equipped. If you have problems stepping into quite a high spa do not book this room, there are plenty of...

Have just spent another two weeks at this resort. It is a 3 story apartment complex which gives you everything you need for a relaxing beach holiday. The apartments are well laid out with full kitchen, laundry facilities, bathroom (no bath) and bedroom with very comfortable bed. Built in a quadrangle with the pool and a well maintained garden in...

I enjoyed my time here as the rooms are private and close to the beach. The kitchen and laundry in the rooms made me feel very at home. We also had a secure place to park our car, which was great! The only issues I had were that the room I was in was quite noisy, a lot of noise...

The apartment was generous and well presented. The pool was wonderful for a swim after being on the beach and would be great for families. The apartment managers were very friendly and helpful. Half the complex has apartments with a view of the sea. The location is fantastic, just across the road from Dicky Beach which has life guards for...

Just returned from Portobello apartments. 3 storey walk up, if you have a problem with stairs ask for ground floor, if not request top floor as we could hear guests above 'dragging' furniture across floor. Good position next door to a restaurant, takeaways, convenience store and bottle shop. Short walk to beach (across a fairly busy road), apartment was clean...

The rooms were ok, but the amount of stairs around the place was a killer. My father is in his 70's and they decided to put us on the 3rd level, with 6 flights of stairs. It is probably due for a makeover.

The apartment is outstanding and great value for money. Rosa, the host , is extremely helpful and pleasant. There was only one downside and that was with the web delivery by a company called Jimojo. They weren't helpful but Rosa sorted it out.

Nice decor, very surfy and coastal feel, excellent location. Had a friendly atmosphere. On the downside, a/c was extremely noisy, lots of noise from the pool area. Weird setup where the elevator stops between floors. Driveway is a little tight.
