Our Vacation, Part 2: Grand Porto Real Hotel

When we got to the hotel, we waited and waited and waited for someone to check us in. I was immediately not impressed. After all, it is an all inclusive resort and I expected service, dang it! We finally got checked in and were told that our room wouldn't be ready for about another hour, which was expected since we were an hour earlier than check-in time. So, the bell boy took our luggage and we headed to the lunch buffet, which was also lacking. We realized that it was 2pm-ish, but the food looked old and like it had been sitting out...in the hot, humid heat. (It was an open-air kind of hotel)




We were, however, very pleased with the service we received from Freddy, our bell boy. He showed us where everything was, the amenities, what we had to do to keep the lights and ac on, etc.




The room was amazing!




We had an ocean front room on the top floor and had two balconies!








And the view was fantastic:





here's video if you'd prefer more of an experience of our view:

And Seth wasted no time in taking full advantage of the mini bar, which was really more of a full bar since the bottles were full size and there were mixers in the fridge! (he didn't really take a shot like this!)
