This place just closed! We had a great time having our reunion here last December 2013. The staff were great to us. We had a great time. We had fun swimming and grilling our fish and pork! It is a great place for the family and friends. Hopefully whoever bought the place can restore what the original owners did.

First off, we got there in Portofino via taxi. the guard on gate insisted that the taxi driver escort us inside the resort, not just on the gate coz he told us that it's "too far" but we just walked from the gate to the beach anyway as it would be more hassle coz we already got off the taxi....

We had a family day luncheon at Portofino that was wonderful. The 15 of us were gathering to catch up with each others lives. Overlooking the sea our table was set with a lovely linen and flatware. Flowers and cut fruits added to the decor. The dining staff was properly attired and were professional in their duties. The food was... More

Went there with family last weekend to visit their water park. They have a small crowded beach area with several huts for rent. I liked that the swimming area was clearly outlined with buoys though and actively monitored by lifeguards, which is great for safety of all family members. Went there specifically for the water park, which I'd heard about... More

We had a delightful Easter Sunday Day at Portofino Resort on Mactan Island in Cebu. 38 of us arrived at a reserved tent and cabana. Booked day rate from 7am to 5pm. We brought our own food and beverages. Table and chairs provided. The resort is very well managed, spotlessly clean, high level of security. The beach was spotless and... More

check in guests do not pay an entrance fee. But everybody else does. I estimated over 2,000 people using the beach and at P120 each, that's a lot of moolah. As someone mentioned in its review, almost everything has a charge: A tent, the tables, the chairs, the pool, zipline, water sports, even their convenience store, you have to pay... More

We had been to this resort several times before just for day use, since its popular to local residents as one of the affordable ones in Mactan. But we somehow wanted to try for an overnight stay during one of our bonding moments with officemates. We chose this since we can bring in food from outside and manage to save... More

Upon arrival at Portofino Beach Resort in Mactan, Cebu, all we could say was that it was worst!!! We came here for swimming only because we booked with other hotel. When we arrived at the resort, we didn't hesitate to get out immediately and refund our entrance fee. In fairness to them, they did not argue about the refund. On... More

We booked here last February 2-4,2011 with my sister, daughter and office mates. We chose these resort cause it is a beachfront resort with yellowish sand.
