Gran Porto Real Review

The family-friendly sister hotel to the Royal (which is just next door) has downtown Playa's best accommodations for the schoolyard set. Two pools, a Jacuzzi, a giant chess set, minigolf, afternoon bingo and blackjack, and a kids' activity room (with babysitting!) will keep the young ones busy while Mom and Dad get massages on the beach or mimosas at the breakfast buffet, the latter part of the all-inclusive rate. Although adults may find cast-concrete Grecian columns, New Orleans-style wrought iron breezeways, and walk-in Moorish showers a bit grandiose, they'll make an impression on the juniors. Beach-facing rooms are significantly nicer than those in back, with corresponding prices.
