Our first visit to Portofino Island resort and our family of four loved it! Stayed in room 603, nicely furnished, very comfortable beds and exceptionally clean! We will be back and hope to make this a frequent family vacation destination.

This resort was by far the loveliest experience we've ever had. The employees all appeared to LOVE their job- greeting us with warmth and enthusiasm at every passing by. The views were incredible and the accommodations were pampering. We felt like we were in a place like Maui!!:)

My family views Portofino Island Resort as our one and only beach vacation spot. They have a location like no other place we've ever been. With the ocean on one side and the bay on the other and a protected nature preserve next door, you can help but feel surrounded by beauty and sea life. And the accommodations are well appointed and very spacious with amazing views. This resort is great for families and romantic getaways. It is definitely not a wild and noisy party place. They have year round ... Read more

Just returned from 7 days at Portofino Island Resort, and it was wonderful. My husband, my mother and my one year old son all had a great time. There is something for everybody! The view from tower 1 was fantastic (both Gulf and Bay view). Each and every staff member we ran across was super nice. I took a pilates class, and it was great! We did the dolphin cruise, sailed the hobie cat, took out the pontoon boat, and enjoyed the pool and beach numerous times. Loved the butler service on the beach... Read more

I can't even begin to describe how amazing our honeymoon was due to this exceptional resort. We loved everything about this amazing resort from the pools, the beach, the most respectful always smiling staff, the wonderful views of the most beautiful sunsets, the premier package is the only way to go (take advantage of this you will not be disappointed)! You all are amazing. We will definitely be returning with friends and family every year! -Mr. & Mrs. Folkertsma

If you are handicapped, stay away! Resort is very spread out and access to the beach on the gulf side is next to impossible! Shuttles are provided, but are too high to climb into and do not always arrive when requested. I stayed in Tower II which was as far from the gulf as you can get and I was truly disappointed. Agent double-booked condo and I was stuck here!

This resort has a great design for families or couples. There is a variety of water activities, cruises, night life, or just simply relaxing beach side with the beach butler a call a way. And there is always a touch of romance all around ???

Always a great stay when I visit; the staff is friendly and prompt. Couldn't ask for a better experience. An trip I plan to continue well into the future. Be sure to check out the room layouts to get the best out of your stay.

I was disappointed with our stay. Although it was beautiful, the pool outdoor pool at our tower was freezing. We told someone multiple times and it was finally fixed the last day of our stay. The indoor pool was also too cold to swim in. The lock on the gate to our tower pool was also broken and we informed the office more than once and it wasn't fixed. Our stay ended on a very bad note. The last night of our stay an alarm jolted us from a dead sleep at around 3am in the morning. It was a voice... Read more
