was not very clean and several things were broken more than once. we became very familiar with the portofino maintenance crew. beautiful location. great weather. also the resort is run by idiots. the average worker is very nice.

Although I think the condo we stayed in could have been better updated and more thoroughly cleaned from the last visitor or owner, it was a great time had by everyone, and would definitely consider returning again for a vacation stay. The view is is something out of a storybook.

We loved it. The beach was beautiful and quiet. The condo was great and had an awesome view. There were lots of activities for our boys, 16 and 11. Great location and not crowded. The perfect getaway before school started.

Not as expected. This was our 6th trip to Portofino and it's starting to show it's age. Missing patio furniture, old interior furniture. Obvious paint chips, missing trim work, mold in shower. We have never had this experience before. Hopefully it was just this unit, however, we won't be back to compare. The lost a customer this time.

If you have teenagers this is the place for you. Lots of action and things to do to stop the boredom. Going again next year for sure!!! Great location just miles across the Florida border . Kids loved the access to both the Bay and the Beach.
