Portofino Island Resort’s two- and three-bedroom beach condo rentals or "Sky Homes" are designed to provide your very own modern, luxury sanctuary while staying naturally connected to the natural beauty of the Gulf Coast. Every room in every Sky Home has a water view. No Sky Home sits below the fifth floor. Spacious and comfortable, each Sky Home is at least twice as wide as a typical beach condo. With private water-view balconies, each is equipped with all the conveniences you’d expect to find in a premier resort, including spacious closets with extra linens and pillows, as well as a dishwasher, washer/dryer and much more. Every room has its own full bathroom plus a half-bath for Sky Home common-area use. Each of Portofino’s five Mediterranean-inspired towers features its own exclusive outdoor pool and revitalizing whirlpool spa, plus covered parking for your convenience. Gaze across the serene waters of Santa Rosa Sound or the Gulf of Mexico from your own private balcony. Relax after a day at the beach over dinner prepared in your fully-equipped kitchen. For an added level of luxury, try our Premier Club Chef-to-You and Spa-to-You services and let our talented chef and experienced massage therapists provide their services in the comfort and privacy of your own suite. Named one of Southern Living’s 10 Best Family-Friendly Beach Hotels in Florida

Re: unit 1705 tower 2. We have been coming to Portofino for the past 10 years . I was never so mistreated in my life as I was today by the manager on duty. We are club members here and we always had great memories at Portofino . But today …. I called to complain I had no closet space because it was cluttered , full of paint cans, broken furniture , old stuff etc . Manager was so rude I don’t know how to start . Manager basically said maintenance would come sometime by “ tonight “ but couldn’t give me a time frame nor give me a call to let me know when they were coming. I explained I needed a time frame because I didn’t want to wait all day / night and didn’t want to leave the unit while maintenance was here , nor leave my daughters alone while some strange man was here . Then I said :” well I guess I have no choice , he can come anytime” I said . We would just leave the unit and enjoy the rest of our day …. Manager said ( very arrogant ):” you do have a choice “—- like , they didn’t have to come … as if I was asking a favor to please remove all the nasty junk from the closets so I could have some space . Told manager I couldn’t stand cluttering . And I didn’t want to spend a whole week like that … but manager kept ignoring and just saying all he could do was to put my complain on their list. so this conversation wasn’t going anywhere, I just said okay and hang up. I want to let you know , the unit wasn’t ready at 3 pm . They said they would text me … but they never did . So we came up around 5. So yes, horrible costumer service . Unit was dirty , disgusting . Still is . Few thousand I could have spent somewhere else . We did call later and just told them not to come . I don’t like strangers in our condo when we are on vacation . So I just ignore the nastiness . Very unsatisfactory service . Unit is outdated . Only a few bad Chanel’s on old TVs . Old DVD player . Everything is old , this place is not worth what they charge . I don’t know if it’s because I have an accent and obviously I am an immigrant that they treated me so badly . But this was definitely the worst experience I have had during my almost 20 years of vacations in US. Also - laundry room is disgusting . Washer and dryer are gross . Have you clean it before use . Blankets in nasty closet aren’t folded and pillows are on closet floor with all the junk . Absolutely horrible .

Upon arrival we noticed the once white living room couch and love seat were no longer white and terribly stained. There were holes in the bathroom filled with sheetrock mud, and left unpainted, loose floor tiles and maintenance towels stored in the master closet, and construction on the balcony. The resort in itself had a lot to offer, but if you want an updated unit…..look elsewhere.

Could not have picked a better place. From the beginning of my planning Lia helped me to book the right condo and ensured I was connected with transportation by Freddie. I had have to say her service was top notch. Then when we arrived, Kristi made us smile and Blake made sure we had activities set in our package. All the food and drinks we had were great. Everyone we encountered at the place was friendly and helpful. Trevor was our waiter by the pool and what great service! Massages we worth every penny in the cabana. Property had enough to for us parents to do and plenty to keep young adults happy. 3 bedroom condo was huge and beds very comfy! Never had to wait long for elevator. Shipt delivered our food since we did not have a car. Loved that this place was not near other condos so never felt like we were smooshed with other people on the beach. I cannot say enough about this place. Will go back for sure and will recommend to anyone that needs a trip. If their staff lived in Houston I’d try to hire them ;)

My family and I visited the resort. Water from the air unit was all over our condo. I reported the issue several times and even requested to speak with the manager. To sum things up I have a swollen knee. The manager will not return my calls and three of my children fell. The maintenance man came and said he’ll be back to clean up the water and never came. I used all of my towels constantly cleaning up the water. We had to dry off with beach towels after our baths. I’m very disappointed.

We really enjoyed our stay in tower 2! Perfect location to get to either the beach or the pools. We rented the aqua cabana while the kids played in the water park and that was great! We loved both pool areas but the main one with the music going and pool side service , really gave the vacation vibes!! Every staff member was polite, friendly and if we needed help, they were right there! The only downside was the selection of dining options. While the food was good in the Al Fresco area, we wish they had a rotating menu selection. Because these are condos with kitchens, there isn’t breakfast served.
