We have been in a number of places around the world, and the only place that came near our experience at Porta Hotel was at a posada in Spain -- and that was because our balcony opened onto a sweeping view of the Mediterranean! I loved the mysterious lap pool, the gardens and flowers, and the view of the volcano....

The facility is very nice. We stayed here for a destination wedding and couldn't have picked a nicer place. The bar and restaurant are excellent. The grounds are beautiful and there are many tours available with pickup at the gate. Although the room is very nice with many amenities, I would have appreciated air conditioning. It seems that some rooms...

Dear Mrs. Linda L, We really enjoyed been at your service during this wedding in Antigua. We'll work on the air conditioning detail so in the future this will not affect our guests' stay. In the meantime, on your upcoming reservations you may ask our front desk and guest relations department to either have a room with air conditioner, subject...

We stumbled across Porta Hotel Antigua when looking for a wedding and reception venue. The hotel and its grounds are breathtaking. We asked if they had a wedding coordinator and we were introduced to Claudia. She answered a few basic questions, gave us a tour and was such a sweetheart that we were immediately sold on having our reception on...

Truly a world class hotel offering great service and amenities. Little details like a different treat each night for turn down service, the in room water filter, and top notch amenities bring it up to the standard that you'd expect from a 4 star hotel anywhere.

Outstanding hotel in middle of old part of Antigua. Hotel grounds are incredibly well maintained and simply gorgeous. Gym is well equipped, and even offers healthy snacks. Food in the restaurant is OK -- and the service was fast, friendly and very responsive. All hotel staff (from reception, to restaurant, and housekeeping were extremely friendly and very efficient).

Antigua is a lovely city that retains its colonial image. This makes you think that everything will be old, but that was not the case. The hotel is totally beautiful, combining the colonial look with updated amenities. Just 4 blocks from the central park, it has a great location. The room was lovely, it had a romantic feeling and there...

The hotel was quite nice, although we did have a few problems. The WiFi had to be rebooted and was not very strong from our room. It was better in the lobby.
