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.

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!

We arrived on a Saturday and were so excited for a great vacation at a beautiful resort. 24 hours later 2,500 teens arrived, taking over every inch of the resort and the rest of our vacation was miserable! Pool time became a loud and crowded mess with 200+ kids in a pool with a Max capacity of 80. My children were told to leave the ocean because they were in the groups way. The hotel made up for that with passes to their waterpark but unfortunately that ended the same when all the teens were to... Read more

I rented a condo from VRBO. The pictures looked great online, but the unit was dated and slowly falling apart. The mattress was the most uncomfortable I have ever in my life slept on. The floor would have been better. The pillows were rock hard, the sheets paper thin. The washer and dryer barely worked and the top of the dryer looked like someone had thrown battery acid on it. The latches on the doors wouldn't work, the blinds wouldn't go down, the TVs didn't work. You get no cleaning supplies, ... Read more

This was our 3rd stay at Portofino. The first was so-so, the 2nd was much better but this time was a huge disappointment. I booked directly with them to hopefully avoid any problems. I spoke to Kelsey and told her about the previous issues and she offered me 10% off to stay again. After I booked our trip they called EVERY day wanting to sell me an Adventure package which I declined. We were not traveling with kids and weren't Interested but they still kept calling.

For the third year in a row, the Portafino has hosted my church family and done an amazing job! It cannot be easy to host 2000+ high school students, but they do and always do an amazing job! This year I was glad to meet some of the Portafinos best, Tina was there daily to meet us and make us feel welcome, and Aaron is still watching us at the dock and making sure that we stayed safe and has a blast! Of course the beach was as amazing as it always is and the accomodations were incredible! Thanks... Read more

We loved our visit to Portofino. We spent a whole day on kayaks, an obstacle course and by the pool eating delicious foods and enjoying frozen drinks. The staff is so helpful and friendly. The portofino 1 dolphin cruise was also enjoyable. We saw some Dolphins, got some great photos of the landscapes and buildings in Pensacola. The crew was very knowledgable of the area and 2 nice guys all around.

Starting with the positive- Beautiful views, various activities offered (tennis, biking, wave runners, water park, spa, kayak, paddle board, dolphin cruise, daycare for kids). Condos are very large, clean, & quiet (booked ours through VRBO-but you can book directly through the resort). Now the negative- There are additional fees for EVERYTHING! You can pay a la carte or opt for their package i.e. unlimited water park, paddle board, kayak, wave runner for your stay for 4 people for a cool $1,000... Read more

We flew in from California and after an incredibly long flight we felt we landed in a mini paradise. We had a 3 room condo with a big, open floor plan and awesome kitchen to cook in. There are pools everywhere and the ocean is directly across a street. The water is warm, and crystal clear. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I would be happy to come here again.

We have lodged at many condos and Portofino was an awesome experience! I can write a book about the wonderful time we had, but I'll just leave this review and give it two thumbs up. From the moment we arrived, I knew this vacation would be worth it. We decided to venture away from Panama Beach and what an excellent choice. The condo was well decorated, gorgeous view, the entire resort was beautiful. This was my first dolphin cruise, we received resort credits, just an overall, pleasant experienc... Read more

This was our second stay here. We love this resort! Staff is helpful and friendly. Great location. Plenty to do. Excellent for families or couples. My only complaint this stay was our room needed repairs (which were done immediately) and the furniture was dirty and stained and in need of replacing. The walls could also use some touch up paint. During our first stay in February the condo was immaculate so this was probably just an issue with this particular condo. Right now there is cons... Read more

This resort is more expensive than your typical hotel at the beach, BUT it us worth every penny. If you become a premier member, they offer so many extras it pays for itself. Download their app to get an idea of how many activities they offer every day. Will definitely go back!
