Thalia & staff made us feel at home, very accommodating & put ramps up to our room & dining room for access for my wheelchair. Beautiful setting. Very secure too. Returning in December with other family members.

We have just returned from staying a Portsalon and we very impressed with the service and accommodation and food. We certainly enjoyed our visit and will definitely return when we are in that part of the world. The rooms are clean and the staff are very welcoming. Thank you to everyone for your hospitality.
