This was our first time to Portofino island. We will def be back. We loved the spacious condo, how you could see water from every window, outside dining table and grill on our balcony. We had one maintenance issue (toilet running) and it was fixed within the hour. Elevators were very fast, rarely had to wait. So nice to have... More

Our experience was - "Got a problem? So sorry, too bad for you". It's a beautiful location, nice pools, and I'm sure there are nice condos. Our "luxury condo" with it's "fully equipped gourmet kitchen" was fair with lots of corners cut. Things like a broken clock were addressed slowly. Told "some owners don't keep up with their units." I... More

This was our third visit to Portofino. The condos are so dirty that you have to wear socks to even be able to walk on the floors. If not, your feet will turn black with dirt in a few minutes after walking around. The condo we stayed in is also just worn out. The main door actually could be pushed... More

We just returned from a two week trip to Pensacola and stayed at the Portofino. This was our first time visiting the area and we had a great time. I loved the white sand beach and the clear emerald water. Some days there were waves and some days you could just float in the ocean like a pool. We brought... More

Disappointed about check in, and deactivated key cards We called beforehand and were advised early check in was available. We arrived at 10 and were advised check out was at 11 and to give them a few hours to clean. We "checked in" but would get activated keys once the cleaning was done. We returned at 2 and were told...

My family stayed in a 2 bedroom condo in Portofino. The view from our room was wonderful. The pools were all nice and clean. We stayed on the 11th floor of Tower 3. We had a beautiful view of the ocean. Our sunrise view would have been great, but the skies were overcast every day. Helpful hints for future guests:... More

The Portafino hosted us as a church family, and believe me hosting 2500 high school students can be a chore...they did an amazing job! The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the condos are really nice and clean, and the location is awesome! Situated between the gulf and the bay with lots for the kids and families to do. And... More

I just spent six nights at Portofino Island with my wife, two teenage daughters and about 30 other relatives. We all stayed in Tower 4, with multiple units on the 11th floor. I have to say that we were almost all very satisfied with our stay. I loved the reserved parking, abundance of rolling luggage carts and ease of loading... More

We rented a condo here through the VRBO website and had no issues at all with the booking and deposit. Upon arrival, we checked in and found out that most of the rooms were not going to be ready on time due to a high school group of 2400 kids checking out 2 hours late that day. Not a huge... More
