This is the second time we have visited the Portofino and I must say that we love it? The first time we stayed in Tower 1. This time we stayed in Tower 5, Room 504. This was a 3BR, 3 full BA, 1 1/2 BA condo. The balcony was a beautiful wraparound balcony with extra space due to the terrace... More

Our condo is always nicely decorated and clean. Durning our stay we went to the fireworks display on Tuesday night and the dolphin cruise Wednesday morning. Both events were lots of fun. One thing I would suggest is changing the pool hours, add an extra hour in the morning and evening. July is always busy, especially Thursday thru Sunday. Overall... More

The resort provided a wonderful vacation for my family. Never a dull moment and always something fun to do. Beach was not crowded and very clean. We love the accessibility to the beach. We had much fun

A long wait to check in and no information was given. After leaving I was charged for a broken bed that broken when I checked in as was the dresser. When I called about the charge Deana Meek was very rude

My family and I really enjoyed our trip. We took our 2 boys and they had a blast in the multiple pools and water park. My wife loved the poolside singers and strawberry mojitos. The food and drinks poolside were awesome. Our 2 bedroom condo was great.

Great room, great location. Beautiful. We really enjoyed our time here. Fireworks were great. We loved the main pool because they always had a band playing. We liked how we got the best of both worlds: beach and the bay.

Excellent with 2 exceptions. The public wifi is very poor, especially by the pool. Also, some of the poolside "bar" food isn't very good although the pizza is excellent. Otherwise the staff are excellent and the location/views are spectacular!
