My family was really impressed with the facility. The amenities were great, very clean. It is a great location for us to visit without being too far from home. We will definitely be back, hopefully real soon.

As they would say in England, this place is Ab-Fab! What's not to like? A luxury 2-bedroom condo on the beach with a wonderful view, nicely appointed with comfortable furnishings. We stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time; we enjoyed both the condo and the property immensely. The owner, Chuck was very helpful and easy to deal... More

This was our third family Christmas at Portofino Resort in Pensacola Beach and we were not disappointed. Since we are local, and it's necessary to rent a condo to gather our family of 7 for the holidays, we have our pick of properties and can visit them prior to booking. Our choice this year was Tower 1 Unit 1801 after... More

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

It certainly is nice with the beautiful nature that surrounds us. With the close proximity to the beaches and the numerous pools on property, it is a common question our guests must decide which to visit for the day! We’re pleased to know that your unit was met both yours and our expectations and look forward to your next visit... More

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.

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
