This is a beautiful place that is very well taken care of. We enjoy our visit every year. My children love that this place has the beach and the bay side. They always make friends at the pool and enjoy all the activities available. There is no question where we'll stay when we go to the beach. This is our... More

Our family has spent Thanksgiving and New Year's at the Portofino. It's one of the best kept secrets that I know. During the off season the rates are super. For Thanksgiving we went into town and got our turkey, oysters, etc. from Joe Patti's (super local place for all types of seafood and delicacies) and I cooked and served turkey... More

The unit itself was not the problem. It was beautiful with great views. The biggest issue was the hallway. The unit next door has a dog and the owner let it use the hallway as its bathroom. We checked in late in the evening and when we got off the elevator, we were greeted by the smell of stale dog... More

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

We're happy to know your experience with us has been so wonderful and you were able to enjoy the amenities we have here and that it was even better than your visit to Mexico! The beaches are even more beautiful in the spring and summer seasons as well! 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!
