Questions about El Portillo

Can anyone tell me if there are any pool view rooms or do they all face the gardens?

Also do you know if they serve Brandy Alexanders at the bar?

jaidyn1 - Welcome to Samana forum!

Regarding your question, GBP El Portillo do not offer rooms that face the pool and also no sea views, all face the gardens. Check the resort map here: …destilino.com/images/map_hotel_gbp_elportil…

As for the Brandy i really don't know...

Villa 10, 11 & 12 face the quiet pool. We were ground floor villa 11 towards villa 10. I could see my wife in the pool from our room. Although in May the bar at that pool did not open like it had last November. Those are quiet rooms, furthest from the beach though. But a lovely spot to be.

Brandy ? You fancy huh. LOL

I am very partial to Brandy Alexanders, and as far as I can remember, they were not available at El Portillo, not on the A I list, anyway.
