The good news, this place is six miles out of town and feels very private. The bad news, this place is six miles out of town and very private. To be honest, I was a little worried about how far away from town this hotel is, but when I got there, my fears disappeared. It is like a private oasis.... More

We booked Portofino Beach Resort as part of our holiday with Imagine Latin America and it was a great recommendation! It's the perfect location if you want peace and quiet, away from the busy town of San Pedro. Transfer to the resort is by speed boat which takes about 20 minutes - there is a sandy, bumpy road but this... More

Took our kids on their first international vacation to Belize and stayed at Portofino. We all had a great time. The staff is wonderful, Raul at the bar and Oscar in the dive shop took care of everything we asked for. The front desk booked our excursions, helped arrange groceries to be delivered to our room, we were very impressed... More

This was my second time staying at Portofino in less than a year. Our trip was just a quick 4 day getaway for my birthday but it was excellent. I constantly see the staff working on the property, cleaning up or assisting customers. When we came back from a day trip, my room was decorated with balloons and there was... More

In July 2015 we spend 8 night in the Portofino resort with our 3 (adult) children. Our experience with the hotel part was excellent - the experience with the restaurant part however was far below expectations (see later - and see separate restaurant review). Overall experience was average, mainly due to the bad restaurant experience. The good... Location is far... More

My wife and spend nine days at Portofino on our honeymoon. As a result, we got a very good idea of what it does well...and where it needs to improve. Let's start with the good: 1. Portofino offers free transfers both to and from the San Pedro airport, which is probably where you will fly into. If you take the... More

Portofino was lovely and the rooms were very nice. Mo, the boat driver, was the best driver and riding with him was much smoother than the Coastal Xpress or other boats we were on. The only real negative about the hotel is its distance from town, and the limited amount of transfers they offer. If they were to offer a... More

We were picked up from the airport, taken to the dock and transported via boat to the resort. Check-in was breezy with a drink and cool washcloth, bags were taken to our suite. The Orchid suite aka honeymoon suite and it's a bit odd that it's on top of another suite. As soon as we walked into the suite, we... More

We absolutely loved Portofino. The accommodations were beautiful. Staff was incredible (Jovani and Raffi especially). Food was nice. Kayaks and bikes are available for guests. We kayaked to a snorkle spot about 15 minutes from the resort, which was amazing. Staff set up for a private dining experience for us on the beach, which was also amazing. We had a... More

Portofino is a lovely resort, ocean front, 6 miles outside of San Pedro. Picked up by the boat at the water taxi and greeted with cool towels, cold drinks and smiles. We were in the VIP room which was absolutely beautiful. The grounds are well landscaped and kept up nicely. The foot washing basin outside of the rooms is a... More
