We originally booked this hotel with a request for a sea view but it was not until we phoned before departure from the UK that we learned that this would cost an extra 15 euros a night. We decided to pay the extra but it would have been nice to have had some advice without having to chase our booking request. The hotel was however excellent with nice views over the beach in Santa Cruz towards La Coruna. The buffet breakfast was good with a varied selection. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Great Hotel with amazing views

Posted Aug 9, 2016
Pros: The room was lovely, the sea views were amazing. The staff were friendly.
It'd be hard to find anything negative to say about The Hotel Portocobo, so I won't. I recently stayed there for 5 days, and paid extra for a room with a sea view. Located in a lovely bay overlooking The Historic Santa Cruz castle the views are simply spectacular, so make sure to book a sea view. The location is excellent, with a beach right outside, and a promenade with several bars and restaurants just 5 minutes walk away. There's also several supermarkets within easy walking distance as well as plenty of bars, restaurants, and cafes. The hotel itself is lovely and quite modern. The rooms feature a good amount of wardrobe space, good air conditioning, a miny refrigerator, hair dryer, and a safe for personal valuables/cash/passports. The bed was comfortable and extra pillows and blankets were readily available in the wardrobe. The house-keeping staff did an excellent job keep the room clean. The hotel staff were all friendly and accommodating, although most spoke little if any english. This wasn't often a problem though, and as long as you're willing to try a little bit and maybe learn one or two spanish words you'll always get what you want.

Could have been perfect..

Posted Jul 20, 2016
Staff was wonderful though not prepared for large group of ebullient Irish family celebrating a wedding. The food was good and the setting is wonderful. We may have been their first destination wedding in this stunning setting. They are well equipped to improve. Be prepared to practice your Spanish.This is very much a "locals" spot. Galicia is beautiful!!

Worth it to stay!

Nice location very friendly staff and they will make sure they help you with your needs. For the price of the hotel you get a lot out of it. Only thing be careful on the bath tub as it is very slippery I felt and hurt my self pretty badly. Otherwise I recommended and for sure will go back again!
