Very nice and scenic spot and the accommodation is excellent quality. However - we booked after inspecting the menu online and were looking forward to enjoying the likes of locally-sourced mussels and Loch Fyne oysters. Unfortunately when we arrived the only menu available was the Lodge Kitchen and Bar Supper Menu rather than the better-quality Marina Restaurant Menu. I get...

We have stayed at Portavadie a number of times and each visit has offered great accommodation( we always stay at tighnamara as we love the lack of mobile phone signal), fantastic food and warm/ friendly staff. This review is specific to the spa experience as it is worth a mention of its own. The facility is brilliantly designed and construction...

We took the 8 hour journey to Portavadie on the 3rd January this year, for our mini moon. WOW! From the moment we arrived at the marina, we were welcomed and made to feel like nothing was too much trouble. Amazing couple's retreat overlooking a secluded bay, a ten minute walk to the spa with one of the most breath...

Absolutely loved this resort: it is well worth the long drive on windy roads to get here! Our apartment (a Luxury Holiday Apartment) was spacious, clean and well equipped: like a home from home. The restaurant is excellent, and the views are amazing. Portavadie is one of the most relaxing places I've ever been, and one of the reasons for...

Spent a fabulous sunny day out at the Portavadie Pool and Spa just outside Tighnabruich. If you're looking for a relaxing day in Argyll, this is the icing on the cake... an indoor AND heated outdoor pool, with Jacuzzis, sauna, gym, restaurants and fabulous views over to Kintyre. I absolutely love the ambience and atmosphere here... and if you want...

My husband and I spent Christmas at Portavadie staying in a good sized, comfortable, peaceful, well equipped lodge room which had double windows giving us lovely views across the woodland. In spite of very poor weather we enjoyed long walks - beautiful scenery. The facilities are superb and well maintained. Warmly welcomed by Beatrice with mulled wine and mince pies,...

We had an excellent weekend break for our friends 21st.Birthday and the next day celebrated my wife's birthday....exactly how many will remain a secret!
