We stayed a few days in Belize before going to a wedding in Guatemala. Portofino was just what we needed. From the moment we got to there, we felt like family. Ashira is such a sweetheart. She welcomes you and makes sure you have everything you need. Raul, seemed to know a couple from New Orleans needed drinks all the... More

Our stay at Portofino Beach Resort could have gone either way. You could focus on the negative or focus on the positive. We focused on the positive and had a great trip, but in writing this review and trying to be objective, I must admit there were a few things not quite up to par. First of all, we had... More

Gorgeous, relaxing setting, with excellent staff. It has everything you need to stay and literally do nothing, yet offers great excursions for those adventurous types. The staff assists with setting everything up. Our accommodations were lovely, clean with fresh flowers daily. It wasn't overly pretentious like some chain hotel and resorts. It is very romantic, perfect to hit the reset.... More

My husband and stayed at to Portofino for 3 nights and had the best time! The staff are so helpful and accommodating and make you feel like part of their family. The hotel is fairly far from San Pedro- 6 miles- but this is part of why we chose it. The remote location made it very tranquil and relaxing and... More

If you like a giant resort jam-packed resort with excitement & non-stop entertainment, the Portofino is not for you. With that being said, the Portofino is everything my husband and I look for in a resort. Here are the cliff notes: Staff - EXCELLENT. Top-notch in every way. Friendly, accommodating, and efficient. Jennifer, Ivan, Raul, Giovanni are definite standouts! Housekeeping... More

We stayed at this resort for a relaxing break following an enjoyable 3 week holiday touring Central America. After a long journey to San Pedro we were met at the airport by a member of staff and taken to the boat , unfortunately the engine on the boat would not start, we had to wait for ages until eventually after...

Portofino Resort in Belize nice place to stay. It is a small resort with only about 17 rooms. We stayed in one of the cabana rooms. I like the thatched roof style rather than some high rise modern type hotel. The staff was great and so was the service and the food. The only down side was the beach. Seaweed... More

The spacious honeymoon suite with its 25ft. balcony overlooking the ocean was hard to beat. We turned off the ac, opened the doors and let the breezes cool us off. Great location a stone's throw from the Mexico Rocks--which offered amazing snorkeling. Enjoyed the rain shower and the handmade soaps, too. Staff friendly--not too intrusive--just don't ask for anything right... More

This was a really relaxing place to stay. The room was clean and beautiful. Staff was friendly and helpful. The food is good and there is always a water taxi going to town if you want to get out. It is pricey, but worth it. Overall, I recommend it and would go back myself.
