We honeymooned at Portofino and had a fabulous time. The rooms are very pretty - dark hardwood floors, thatch roof, and a comfortable bed. The restaurant, reception, and cleaning staff are all super friendly, hospitable and very responsive. The property itself is gorgeous with a ocean view pool and very clean beach. There is a dive shop on Portofino's dock... More

We recently returned from our wedding at Portofino Resort. The resort was beautiful and the staff was exceptional. We couldn't have imagined it any other way. Michaela thought of everything to ensure our experience was perfect. The entire wedding was planned out and the outcome was more than we imagined. You are treated like royalty from the time you arrive.... More

Beautiful resort - very clean and quiet with excellent service. Staff is exceptional and the food is way above average. Beautiful location - secluded and quiet. One of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. Can only recommend staying there - especially if you like small, very personal resorts. Boat service is a bit restricted during the off season... More

The hotel is on a beautiful piece of beach front property. We were upgraded upon arrival to the honeymoon suite which was a wonderful surprise. The room was lovely and spacious with a great view. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially Stephanie and Moe. The owners are very friendly and will often sit with their guest in the evening... More

This was a beautiful place with GREAT FOOD. However, make sure you're ready to spend A LOT. Also, make sure to take the boat into town for food, just catch a ride with Mo and its free. Once you're in town, food is AMAZING and very inexpensive, make sure to go to Waraguma, a pupusas restaurant that is world famous... More

Can't say enough about the management and staff at Portofino. Helpful, caring, exceptional all the way around. The food was outstanding. They cooked our "catch of the day" for dinner. Now that was fresh fish. Hope to go again soon.

Lovely. Just needs some updating/maintenance and dining prices for dinner are a little high. You can eat for less in San Pedro. Great snorkeling trips from resort or use an adventure company from San Pedro if the resort trip times aren't convenient. Easy access to San Pedro.

This was our second time to Portofino and we were again enthralled. From the minute we were greeted with a hug from Moh at the airport, to the beautiful "Welcome Back" in flowers on our bed to the gorgeous setting on the beach for our welcome back dinner, we knew we were "home". The staff we knew had hugs for... More
