An Aunt and Uncle own a condo in one of the portofino towers, so me and my husband try to go here for a long weekend a couple of times a year. I love the location it's just a short drive/bike ride straight down the road from the boardwalk where all the hotels, restaurants, bars and stores are. Because it... More

I stayed here for my graduation weekend with a large amount of family memebers. I booked through Wyndham but from the moment we checked in we were greeted with smiles and great customer service at the front desk of Portofino. The security is wonderful. They are friendly and you feel safe at this property. The maintenece workers were spotted throughout... More

Back in October my parents and I vacationed at Portofino, we decided to go to the annual shrimp festival gulf shores our first time. I enjoyed the pools and walked along the sound, I even saw big hermit crabs and a jellyfish. It never rained the entire time we were there. I enjoyed having my own room and bathroom and... More

The unit we rented was a management owned property, rather than from an individual private owner and you could tell right away by how sparsely stocked it was. But worse, was you know they HAD to know the exterior of our side, of our building was getting a sealant applied and still rented it out (there were posters in the... More

This was our second trip to Portofino and we were not disappointed. We make the trip in Nov. when: less crowded, less expensive, cool weather (open the sliding doors), low humidity, no bugs. Just a perfect trip. I have never seen the gulf so calm. It was like a piece of glass our entire visit. During this time of year,... More

If location is everything, then they have it. After staying here yearly for several years this was a fantastic place to relax. This past September we were very disappointed. The first suite we refused and went to the desk to complain of the condition. We were given another and told that was all they had to offer. This was a... More

A year ago we had a great time at Portofino while visiting our son before his deployment to Afghanistan. I decided to bring his grandparents and his two brothers this time to visit him & his wife before his latest deployment to somewhere he couldn't tell us. I just finished face-timing my AF pilot son, the first time I had... More

We found this unit at Portofino going through the VRBO site. I couldn't say enough kind things to say about Katie Tipsword, who helped us find this amazing unit which had the 2 king bedrooms we requested each connecting to the balcony which centered off the living / dining area. What a view of the gulf, Santa Rosa Sound and... More
