Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Portavadie is outstanding. The view is beautiful, the lodges are very clean and spacious. The whole atmosphere is brilliant. Even though the place was fully booked, there was never anywhere that was too crowded. The food was also to a high standard and the service was quick and friendly. Can't recommend it enough.

Brand spanking new spa and fitness centre with heated outdoor infinity pool and two heated outdoor jacuzzis. Cafe has limited choice at this time of year but quality and service was excellent a must visit.

Amazing outstanding experience at this resort. The lodges were incredibly spacious, modern, comfortable and of real elegance. The cleanliness was top end, with every need catered for. The leisure facilities from gym to pool and infinity pool were fantastic, with every part of this resort taking in the breathtaking scenery. Customer service outstanding best I have ever experienced and the...

Fabulous time had at Portavadie. Our apartment was perfect and well stocked. We visited the Spa which has an upstairs adult area only and had lovely meals at the Marina. Perfect! Took the ferry over to Tarbert for a trip out also, beautiful area. We will be back!

Visited with friends. We hired out one of the cottages that face onto the marina, the view was stunning and the cottage itself was great. It was very spacious and equipped with everything we needed for the weekend. Dogs are allowed to stay in the cottages which was a bonus as we have a puppy who had a ball here....

Really nice quiet spot in Scotland with a stunning view. From the rooms to the pools was great, the facilities were fantastic and relaxing. Special mention to one of the staff, Amar? I think his name was, he was really superb, professional and chilled, like he was one of your friends. Helpful whenever we had questions. Cafe was lovely too,...

I have stayed here before and really love this place for a restful break. The accommodation is of a very high standard and the views are outstanding. This is not a party party place and that is what I love about it. Ate breakfast and dinner in the Lodge. Whilst it was a continental breakfast there was an extensive choice....

This was our first self catering holiday so I was a little apprehensive but I didn't need to be. We stayed in a cottage which while basic, was clean and comfortable. They are in need of some paint touch ups, glass cleaning etc. The one complaint I have is that there isn't a telephone. A direct dial phone would have...
