Credit for places, where credit is due. This is such a lovely small resort. The rooms are excellent. The beach is lovely. Mexico Rocks for snorkelling and swimming with sharks and stingrays is just a whisk away. The bar and resturant staff is friendly and helpful and possibly the best free WIFI I experienced on my trip to Mexico &... More

The bartenders are very friendly as well as the front desk and all other staff. The food is AMAZING; always get the special! The rooms... More

We spent five days at Portofino as part of our Honeymoon in June and we had a great time!! The dive shop is right at the end of their pier and Blinky was an excellent Dive Master with plenty of places to take us with lots of marine life and great coral reefs. The food was great at Portofino and... More

My sister and I just spent 6 nights at Portofino in early August. It was just what we were looking for even though we had no idea it would be so spectacular. We had flipped through reviews on Trip Advisor and were impressed by the recommendations for Portofino but still...we had no idea it would be so spectacular. One thing... More
