This was my 5th stay at Portofino and it's always like coming home. My son in law and I like 2 bedroom apartment type rooms, so we've always stayed on the 1st floor beachfront. Unfortunately beachfront also means you are constantly bothered by people trying to sell all kinds of crap. An older guy came around selling peanuts and we... More

Huge rooms, great value for money and very comfy accommodation. Staff are very friendly and went out of their way to help us! Food menu is pretty good and very reasonably priced! Very helpful that the breakfast is included in the price!

Title says it all!!! The best hotel in Sabang area for relaxing and enjoyment (Not a dive resort hotel). Family freindly and welcoming. Good value (for sabang) food, and relaxing pool side bar. Great value. Looking forward to returning.

You can get the private ferry from Berberabe pier south of Batangas to virtually the front door. Room was a massive one bed apartment with private balcony although 70s/80s furniture inside. Nice bar close to beach and tiny swimming pool. Service was typically Filipino - fantastically friendly although a bit haphazard at times to add to the charm. Food was... More

Stayed here over the All Souls/Saints to get away from Manila and dive Nitrox. Reservations were easy and they were waiting me when I arrived (I took the ferry to Sabang and walked the 0.4 miles to the hotel). It was very quiet and only got noisy when I decided to walk into Sabang. Room was nice and big with... More

Stayed with the Portofino team, great people, always happy and friendly, nothing is ever a bother. Service is great, would get up in mornings head straight to pool side bar area facing out to sea, staff would have coffee ready within 2 min, breakfast offered. Nice to sit and relax. Rooms good size, no noise from adjoining ones, air cond... More

This hotel was very nice, included a kitchen and plenty of room. Ocean views from the restaurant/bar/pool were fabulous. See pictures I updloaded. The only downside was the shower hot water was less than adequate. Had to turn it a certain way, shown by the staff, to even get hot water. Other than that, good, clean, helpful staff and right...

I picked Portofino for a quiet getaway for a few days & paid a bit more than I normally would for a 50th birthday treat to myself. At first I was disappointed that I was given a rear-facing room, which are quite dark & with no views. But once I got used to this I accually enjoyed my stay here.... More

The first regret was a 'long' walk to the hotel from the drop-off point. Secondly, the 'beach' is a narrow sandy, stony and rocky shore. During high tide, the water reach right up to the edge of the embankment. If you like diving and looking at carol, this area - Sadang, is good. U can just jum into the water,... More
