Please listen to all the bad reviews. They are all correct. I booked this place as I had a free week coupon from Armed Forces Vacation Club. I wanted something that was near town and quiet. Well, I got the near town part right at least. Most everything else I struck out on... Strike #1 - Upon arrival, I was... More

So much to say. Recently visited with my parents. Will start with the air-conditioner and fans were so noisy it was difficult to sleep, but that didn't matter because between the cats screeching and the dogs barking, not to mention the sirens on the street, we couldn't sleep anyway. Lightbulbs did not work in the fixtures, but to the staff's... More

Note: there is so much to say, I have to put it into parts: We could not have been more surprised at how bad this place is. If I did not have to give it one star (owl eye?) I would give this property a big fat zero. It escapes me how trip advisor could have this is the #4... More

Just got back from a one week stay at this hotel. I loved the central location and the excellent view from the huge deck. The suite was a large two bedroom with two bathrooms. The kitchen was well-equipped. We used the pull-out futon in the living room which was quite comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They hosted... More

We stayed there for a week - and I've never been at a place that provides one round trip to WalMart (great to load up on food), one night with a free BBQ, and one night with a cocktail hour. Extremely roomy 2 bedroom place, and very accommodating/friendly staff. I would stay there again.

Second time we stayed at the Portofino and we have enjoyed both stays. The Portofino is very central to all of the tourist areas of Cabo San Lucas. We walked everywhere all day long after enjoying making breakfast in our villa and eating on the spacious deck overlooking the beautiful view of the city and marina/beach area in the distance....

My first trip ever to Mexico was to Portofino. I arrived after a LONG day of flying (three plane-changes) and a LOT of rain. It was late evening when arriving and didn't realize there were so many steps (I believe it was 146 to my villa at the top). Once I opened the door to the villa, there was water... More

We were very pleased to spend another 2 weeks at Portofino and see how well it recovered from Hurricane Odile. The resort weathered the storm very well and continues to be a favorite place to visit for that back home away from home feel. We climbed numerous stairs for our second week when we moved to a unit higher up... More

First of all, if you don't want to walk anywhere nor climb stairs, stop reading. This resort is off the beaten path and there are lots of stairs as it's built into the Cabo hillside. That being said, we would stay there again if we get a chance to go back! Udo, Nazarely, and David bent over backward to accommodate... More

We just got back from a week at Portofino. This was our first visit to the area and we were looking for a base to explore the area. This resort was perfect. Yes there are stairs so definitely not for those with mobility challenges. But we looked at it as a way to burn off the beer and cheese! It... More
