I booked directly through the onsite rental company, and would do it no other way. Because we rented with Intrawest we recieved free beach towels, we got to use the beach chairs and umbrella for free, and we got to ride their beautiful catamaran for free. From the time I arrived my family and I were treated like royalty. The... More

Condo: We rented this condo directly from the owner. The resort had some good prices but I found a motivated owner who quoted a very reasonable rate. The condo was fantastic. We were on the 13th floor with an unobstructed view of the gulf, bay, and island. Every thing was new and the place was spotless. All the appliances and... More

My husband and I stayed in a suite and it was fantastic ! It was like being in your own home, extremely accommodating. Since we had to stay in a 2 bedroom, it was a bit on the pricey side. It would be best if 2 couples went and split the cost. The staff was very helpful and personable which... More

We have stayed at the Portofino numerous times and this was the final straw! Upon arrival we were told that the unit we reserved had been given to someone who checked in earlier than we did. We reserved a gulf front tower and was given a tower at the back of the property. Great view of the bay and gulf... More

What a great place to stay! Probably the best place on the Gulf Coast. The property was in beautiful shape with many things to do. Our building had its own pool as well as the property had a Lifestyle Spa, white tablecloth restaurant and massage facilities. The white sandy beachs are the best we have ever seen and we have...

Portofino was an amazing property! My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway and we had no idea that we found such a hidden paradise in Pensacola Beach, FL.
