Great view, tranquil surroundings, roomy accommodations great for couples and families. Decent gym and indoor pool allowed us to keep active through a rainy and cold week in December. Overall all the family had a good time. Would be great if there were more dining options within walking distance although the onsite restaurant served good food.

We visited the resort two separate times last summer, because we loved it so much! Our first visit was May 5-10, and we shared a 2 bedroom unit with another couple in building 2. The time of year was perfect! The water was warm and the resort wasnt full, so we had a front row seat from our loungers on... More

We were traveling during Christmas holiday to Pensacola and decided to stay on the beach to relax. Wow, did we ever relax! I reserved a two-bedroom unit in Tower 3 that overlooked the sound and the beach. I could see the water from every window in the unit....beautiful! The unit was beautifully decorated; it even had to recliners in the... More

This is the third time we've stayed at this property. All the places are condos. This is the first time we've gotten a 3 bedroom unit. We selected the less expensive package for the condo units. This turns out to not always work out well. In our case we got a unit while it was decorated well it did not... More

GREAT getaway, nice views and easy access to beach. If able, make sure and take advantage of having your own personal chef, even for just one of your nights. Everything was cooked to perfection and courses galore!

We came down to my nieces graduation. It was a quick trip but Portofino made such an impression my husband and I are thinking of coming back in the summer to enjoy all of the extra amenities . We loved it!

Portofino is the nicest resort on the entire Gulf-coast. It is 5 towers of luxury combined with almost any amenity you would want. They include fantastic gym (the nicest I have ever seen anywhere) 8 pools including a large indoor lap pool, hottubs, saunas, restaurant, snackbar and all sorts of extras that you can rent including a water park in...

Superb facility with clean and dependable appliances. I would like to come again in the near future. My family and I came last year and we will probably come again in the spring. We love to cook together so we did not use the dining facilities while on the property.

Wonderful vacation for a family. Great views. Easy access to the beach. We were in tower five on the 01 side of the building. Best location for views! The condo fit our family of six well. Decor is a bit tired, but adequate. The parking entrance areas are a bit depressing compared to the resort. Staff was exceptionally friendly and... More

Tower One gave such a spectacular view of the Gulf and beach. There are few places that can compare to the serenity of Portofino. Our guests were so very delighted and have promised to return to Portofino when the opportunity permits.
