Pensacola beach is fabulous. The resort is lovely, condo was fine. There is transportation available and you'll want to use it to eat elsewhere. At the gourmet dinner restaurant, I ordered champagne battered lobster. It was so greasy and overcooked it was nearly inedible. The waitress asked how our food was but then made no suggestions to remedy the situation.... More

We stayed in Tower 4, Unit 904 and it was very dirty. Stained bedding and just dirty. The pool for our tower had stuff floating in it. We didn't have a grill on our porch, which was advertised as having. Our view from the balcony was great, though. For the money we spent on this condo, I can find a... More

Pensacola Beach is known to travelers across the world for its powdery, white sand and clear, emerald waters. With attractions ranging from snorkeling and diving to the wonders of its area museums, it is a fantastic destination for families, couples, or anyone just needing to "get away from it all". However, rising like a tropical oasis from the sand is... More

I did a lot of research prior to booking the unit based on user reviews & photos of the condos online. When I'd found the one I wanted, I called the 800 number & asked for that particular room number. It's very easy to check availability with the provided calendar on the website. Upon arrival, checking in was a breeze.... More

We were interested on a final beach trip during the Labor Day weekend. We had made reservations at the Embassy Suites in Destin but didn't really want to drive the extra hour if we didn't have to. I started looking at condos because hotels were either booked up or ridiculously expensive in Pensacola. I first made contact through flipkey.com for... More

I must say that I'm not sure why we went back again after our trip last year. I guess it was in hope that this once beautiful resort had turned the corner back to when the units you rented were kept clean and were decorated nicely. I booked directly online through Portofino with the deluxe and premier packages included in... More

Oh, how I miss this sugar-white sand and blue water and dolphins and turtles! The beach there is perfect, clear water, seashells, little crabs. The resort itself: our suite was pretty comfortable, we had everything we needed. The view from the 10 floor was very nice. We stayed in tower 5. I guess they don't provide housekeeping. We stayed only... More

Booked online using Portifino's website. Booked a room to accommodate three couples. Based on the photos, looked to be a lovely room in the newest tower. Arrived and found out we were booted from the room because the condo's owner came in. We were not notified. We simply do not get what we paid for when the condo's owner knows... More

My family and I just returned from our vacation at the Portofino Resort. We were in newest building Tower 5 on the terrace floor with a huge terrace and a nice view of the bay. Our condo which we rented from a private owner on VRBO was decorated nicely and included most needed amenities. The Good: The resort is very... More
