Yet another epic vacation made possible by the great people at Portofino. We had such a good time the first go around we ended up going back a year later along with some friends we had met the prior time. If you want someplace to disappear, relax and be catered to--stay here. The owners are fantastic people who truly care... More

This a small resort, very intimate and personable, the ambiance is unpretentious (the owners call the vibe "barefoot elegance"). The resort is surrounded by palms and located six miles north of San Pedro, so you will need to take boats, bikes or walk to and from town (Six mile walk along the beach with plenty of bars and restaurants to...

We stayed at Portofino in Nov. 2013.(I put 2014 below, because it wouldn't let me go back further. I recently got this request to send in a review) It was a lovely place. The restaurant was delicious. Many folks from around the area, came to this restaurant. The people friendly and easy going. The staff was very attentive and helped... More

The location is great, the resort is very nice and quiet, the housekeeping staff were so nice and went out of their way to make our room up with little extras everyday (flowers on the bed with decorations for our aneversary, as an example, which my wife loved!). The grounds and property are always maintained. The food at the restaurant... More

Wonderful location if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing get-a-way. The resort is beautiful and clean; flowers on the bed each day and the tropical soaps added to the romance. The staff worked very hard to make our trip enjoyable often going the extra mile to be helpful! The food is very good and, as others have mentioned,... More

Came to Belize and lovely San Pedro in 2011 and brought our adult children with us for this trip. It was just as we remembered at Portofino - wonderful service, casual relaxed atmosphere and a staff that attends to your every need. (Everyone called us by name after the first day - who does that anymore!?) We jumped in kayaks... More

From the moment of booking the trip to the moment we left Portofino was a great experience. The staff set up a boat to transfer us from town up to the resort. We were welcomed with friendly faces and escorted to a beautiful cabana near the pool. The room was very clean and inviting. I love the attention to details... More

Hotel is owed by a couple. Very nice. A little ways off from San Pedro by boat taxi or golf cart. We suggest the golf cart but get a big one as some of the roads are not roads and can be very muddy so you want one with power. Suggestion is to do a pub crawl and stop at... More

The food here was fantastic! The drinks were ok and the usual you can get anywhere. The prices were higher then some other places but the amount and quality of food was also higher. The server was also very accommodating and friendly! I would go back!
