Positive Reviews

Peaceful and lovely environment.

You cannot find fault in the Macdonald Portal Golf & Spa’s environment. It is ideal for those who want to lay back and break free from the pressures of a typical busy day. The views will surely calm your senses. Moreover, the scenery is incredible it makes you hate leaving the establishment.

High-class spa with excellent treatments.

Your stay will not be complete without trying the treatments at the spa. Ladies’ self-confidence have been boosted, thanks to the excellent aesthetic treatments. After a relaxing massage, you can enjoy a delicious cup of afternoon tea in one of the most relaxing areas in the hotel.

Spectacular golf course.

The greenkeepers cannot do more for you. The golf courses are in their best condition in the past couple of years. It’s great that the management decided to make major renovations. The lessons are indeed perfect for beginners and advanced players alike.

Negative Reviews

Restaurant can be busy.

The restaurant can be crowded especially during peak seasons. Due to this, the service during lunch and dinner becomes slow. However, waiting for the food is totally worth it since it’s cooked to perfection Moreover, this actually means that the staff pays attention to detail and does not sacrifice the quality of the food for faster service.

Minor issues with lighting.

The rooms have great interior features. However, some lights are dimmer compared to the others. If you encounter these lights and get bothered by it, contact the staff. Someone will be sent to fix it as soon as possible.

Few toiletries.

The soap, shampoo, and conditioner are of good quality but they are not replenished regularly. A small bar of soap cannot be sufficient for a three-day trip. Thus, you are advised to intentionally ask the staff for extras before the supply runs out.
