  • Large pools on the sea, without waves, transparent waters, fine sand and clear, very nice for walking...

  • Very nice beach, a barrier reef protects the waves for swimming. The beach is clean and the fish are at the make you.

  • We need to relax and we chose playa portillo for his more traditional appearance. We have been pampered... no mega resort other than the Bahia Principe, cool atmosphere and landscape beauty. You can practise snorkelling, you massage for $ 25 for 60 min and try Kite surfing at the left edge of the beach!
