Loved this place. We went there at the end of big trip and it was the perfect place for relaxation. The hotel was quiet and off the beaten track at the top of the caye and the speedboat takes you there from the town. The pool is beautiful and the staff are also welcoming. Both the ladies at the reception were really helpful and the bar staff also friendly. Really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

So impressed with every thing and everyone Bellini, Danielle, Moe, Lois, Eric, Andrea, Kyle, James and all the staff. It's easy to remember the names of the people who go out of their way to make every minute perfect. That Bellini...she's trouble and I love trouble. If I could give them 10 stars I would. Going back soon.

i can’t say enough great things about this resort! Just what I wanted. Beautiful grounds and views, huge rooms, peaceful days, great food, fun bar and a staff that was 2nd to none. From the beginning Bellini was there to answer all questions and attend to needs and once we arrived. I felt like I had new friends. I had broken my ankle a few months before and was worried about going but the staff was so helpful from the manager helping me to the pool and everyone happily bringing me dinner in the room and ice for my foot when needed, I felt lucky and grateful I found this gorgeous place with its amazing staff. Seriously the housekeeping staff was perfect with little touches in the room everyday. Maintenance staff kept everything clean and neat and even brought us a DVD player to watch movies. Daniela and Orlene set up tours and golf cart for day trips. the massage on the beach was the best I have ever had. Drinks were flowing and the bar was a draw. Missed lobster season by a few days so had dungeonous crab claws instead!!! They set up dinner on the beach under the stars. Truly, I could go on and on. I can’t wait to go back! It’s the place in my head I go to when I’m daydreaming! Thank you everyone at Portofino. Can’t wait to see you again!

We had an absolutely fantastic vacation at the Portofino resort in early March 2020. It was our first trip to Belize and we loved it. We were in Belize for a week and spent almost all of our time at Portofino. The location, grounds, staff, food, drinks, pool, dive shop and other amenities were so good we had no desire to go anywhere else. Our purpose for the vacation was to completely unwind and we were successful. We spent time relaxing by the pool, eating leisurely meals and snorkeling / scuba. From the moment we landed in Ambergis Caye the Portofino staff took care of us. As we reflect on our trip we realize that it was the staff that made our trip so memorable. From Captain Mo and Daniella who greeted us on our arrival to Luis and Kyle in the bar, everyone was always smiling and helpful. We enjoyed drinking at the bar and eating at the restaurant every day. The restaurant staff was super-friendly, James, Andrea and Marcelo. A special shout out to James who was one of the friendliest, most helpful and kind-hearted persons we have met anywhere!
