We had gone down for my brother in-law's wedding. I had never been to Belize or considered it for travelling (don't know why). But I will be going back! The resort is small, quaint with excellent staff. By day two, everyone knew your name. When I asked what time the bar is open till, they said 'whenever you guys are done drinking.'. They even let us pour after too many drinks one night.LOL Anything you needed, they had or would get or recommend. This is not an all inclusive resort, so I was a... Read more

We stayed at the Portofino for four nights. The staff were excellent - very friendly and very helpful. Only 20 minutes by boat from San Pedro. Our room was a colonial suite which was enormous - only problem was that we were on ground floor and as the rooms have beautiful wooden floors we could here every movement of the people above us. Restaurant was very good albeit a little pricey - definitely go fishing - we caught barracuda and the restaurant cooked it for us. All activities can be booked o... Read more

We absolutely love this place and highly recommend for those interested in an island vacation. Kayaks. Fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling available. Great food awesome location. Off the beaten track yet close enough if you must get a city fix. Transportation easy LOVED!

Food was fine, service was good (on the whole), room was comfortable, but a lot of small niggles. Our cabana was next to the kitchen/bar, so quite noisy. The curtains aren't opaque so you can see into the room when the light is on (straight into the bed, and the bathroom at the back, in fact!). The "grounds" are really limited - no gardens at all, so almost no birds, which is quite a feat in Central America. The white sand doesn't extend into the sea - it's actually mud! The reception staff... Read more

Excellent location, transportation, service, people, food! The staff go out of their way to be friendly and accomodating. It's laid back with an easy, tropical feel but anything you want or need will be arranged. We took advantage of the pool, ocean, kayaks, dive shop excursions, complimentary boat taxi andn much more. Cannot wait to return!

This place is so great. We stayed there for couple of weeks and each day just seemed to to keep getting better. The staff is very friendly and professional. They can tailor anything to your needs. You can really feel the personal touch in everything. You can just lounge around on the beach all day or hit up the dive shop at the dock where they can set you up with any number of activities from fly fishing the flats(which you can also do right off there beach, i caught a ton of bonefish 50 steps f...

I found out about Portofino about a decade ago and it was always on our bucket list. It finally happened two weeks ago. Coming from San Diego was a long but efficient trip: SD to Dallas, Dallas to Belize City, then a 15 minute puddle jumper in a 15 person full flight to San Pedro, then a 4 block cab ride to the dock, where the capable Captain Mo picked us up for a bumpy 20 minute speed boat ride to Paradise. We reached the dock and Mo handed us up, our luggage was whisked away (in a wheel barr... Read more

I stayed here late May 2016 with my husband and children and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has these great little cabanas (aka bures, casita, cabin, cottage) that are absolutely beachfront with rooms that step onto the sand. You arrive by boat to a pier where you walk to the front desk just after the end of the pier. The staff takes impeccable care of the property and they are very friendly and accommodating.

Great get away, great staff! The rooms are semi rustic but fantastic. We looked at all the reviews before booking and despite the few negative ones we booked anyway. Here is what we have to say: if you are looking for an all inclusive beach resort this isn't the place for you. The beach is just so so, in fact the sand doesn't extend very far. But the view is awesome! The rooms were clean and vert comfortable. The AC seemed to do the job. (not ice cold but never miserable). No coffee in the room... Read more

Lovely rooms, a beautiful pool and views; true perfection if you wish to relax in the Caribbean sun. However, for the more active traveler there are a few downsides. Firstly, the website is slightly misleading about snorkeling from the beach, the area one may explore is limited to about five square metres off the end of the pier and snorkeling excursions are very expensive. The same goes for diving (a popular sport for many of those who venture to Belize), the boat trips are incredibly fun and A... Read more
