Size of the condo, location, and price were all on point. we were led to believe, though, that there would be a grill on the balcony in our condo. There was not, and management did not remedy the situation when we complained. Other than that, we enjoyed ourselves.

Had a great time. Can't wait to get back. Very close to the beach. Pool was excellent. Condo was awesome. Very quiet at night. Had a friend from work staying at the same place and never ran into them. Big enough to have plenty of space, small enough to have easy access to all amenities.

Resort good, great view, family friendly. We went in March would go in summer months more activities at resort. I found on Groupon at a discounted price which was great. But was surprised with extra charges when I returned home.

A bunch of friends went here for spring break and they arrested 25 of us including me. I was sober and not in my condo and got arrested because I had booked the place. We left halfway through the week after getting out of jail. Then a week later the resort charged my card $1,400 without any warning or explanation... More

We had a small reunion to celebrate a family member earning of his wings from the Marine Corps. There were 9 people sharing a 3 bedroom condo (Tower 2 Rm #1707) and we had plenty of room and accommodations were great. Each bedroom had it's own private bathroom, plus a powder room. There were spectacular views of both the gulf... More

We stayed a week over spring break in a 2 bedroom unit. The room was great really good size with all you need. They even had a grill on the balcony we used most days! The pools where well heated and there where plenty to choose from. They have a great fitness centre over looking the main pool. Unless you... More

We planned a last minute spring break trip to Pensacola Beach and drove to Portofino with 4 kids in tow (11 hours). I have to say, it was totally worth it. Since we have 4 kids we were going to have to book 2 hotel rooms, or rent a condo. I'm so glad we chose to give Portofino a try.... More

A great resort for families! Wonderful facilities and friendly staff! Lovely beach with helpful attendants to setup chairs and umbrellas for you. Nice restaurant with good food. Frozen drinks aren't the best and are very expensive...$16.00 each poolside. All in all, a great trip. It is quite the distance to the restaurants and shops in Pensacola Beach, so be prepared...
