We booked this trip and hotel site unseen with the guidance of Trip Advisor and the reviews we had read from guest's recent stay. Our stay turned out as planned and from the moment we were picked up by their boat at San Pedro our trip had officially started. We arrived at the dock of the resort and were greeted... More

Loved Portofino! I always like to try out different places but if I were to return to the island, I'd actually be tempted to stay here again. The resort looks like a Caribbean paradise. We stayed in a bungalow which is the way to go. Very spacious, clean, super cute and right on the beach. And the soap butler service...... More

We celebrated our 25th anniversary at Portofino Resort with a ceremony on the beach.This was a small event with just the two of us but the resort staff (who are first rate) made it into a very special occasion and took great care with all the details every step of the way. We had an hour long professional photo shoot... More

Portofino Beach Resort is a perfect place for a Belizean get away/vacation. The staff and owners are very nice and personable. It is secluded/away from the town of San Pedro by 6 miles but the resort gives free boats rides daily into town and/or you can ride their bikes into town as well. For anyone looking for a tropical vacation... More

Beautiful secluded location with great ocean views from well appointed cabanas. Staff really friendly and helpful. Jerrilee in particular who helped us to get transport to our next place. Cabanas were cleaned twice a day and the rooms were spacious with lovely wooden flooring, fridges stocked with bottled water each day. Town of San Pedro was a thrilling 20 minute... More

From the meet and greet at San Pedro airport to the warm welcome on the dock by Jerilee with eucalyptus scented towels we felt at home the whole week. What ever you want the staff will kindly see to it that you receive it. When we caught enough mahi mahi for more than three couples, the chef prepared it how... More

hotel is quite remote-no walking to town, no other restaurants nearby, although you can walk down the beach 10 minutes to a jamaican cafe, or farther to Matachica hotel for more variety. all transportation is by water taxi. we were disappointed that the beach front is filled with seaweed, no swimming beaches. we only entered the water at the reef...

My boyfriend and I decided three weeks prior to our stay that it was time for an adventure. We could not have made a better choice than the Portofino hotel located on the island Ambergris Caye. Jerrilee greeted us at the dock, and we immediately took a special liking to her. She put us on "Belizean time", which can be... More

This was our first trip to Ambergris Caye and it sure beat any other warm destination that we've experienced! Portofino has the perfect mix of laid-back, relaxed ambiance... The staff feel like friends and they are great source for 'things to do' while staying on the island. It's only a short kayak jaunt out to Mexico Rocks and you can... More
