Beautiful hotel with the most comfortable beds and pillows! After a long day in the park we slept well! We stayed one night, but arrived at 7 am to get our cards so we could use the included express pass on our check in and check out days. Definitely worth the money with the Passholder rate we got.

From entry to exit the staff was extremely helpful. The resort is gorgeous. Momma Dellas is a absolute must for dinner. I highly recommend Thirsty Fish for a relaxed happy hour time. The proximity to the parks was incredible. Walking to enjoy the sites and also having the ability to relax on a water taxi was incredible.

Great stay, staff were excellent and very helpful in all areas. The boat to the theme parks is a great way to go, good on the way back and the lines go quickly. It was very easy to walk back. Room was nice and overlooked the bay so good view. Clean and well maintained. Complimentary toiletries were of a good quality. The buffet breakfast was really good and set us up for the parks. Location really did look the part Hope to be back

We booked a 3 bedroom suite online. Upon arrival we were given 3 connecting rooms. We have small children and did not like that there were exterior doors on their rooms and felt like this was not a suite. 2 of the three rooms had significant black mold. One (all steel) room door had to be kicked to be opened. The door knob to the door between our room and an adjacent room came off in my hand. Very disappointed in the state of the rooms for $1300 per night.

It is a gorgeous resort with top notch service and great food. They go to great lengths to keep kids entertained and make life easier for the parents. We had an amazing time and can't wait to be back!

We loved everything about the hotel, it was clean and lovely, the water taxis were very regular and wait times were no more than 10 minutes. our only complaint was the mattresses were a little soft and gave us slight back ache.

We stayed at Portofino in 2021 and were very happy! The hotel was super clean and the room was perfect. We went back again in 2022 and stayed on the first floor of the East Wing. This wing felt unkept and the room felt like a dated motel. The transition piece of metal between the carpet and the tile had screws that were sticking up. The bathroom had no exhaust fan, the spot was covered up and the switches had blank plates over them. The make up mirror in the bathroom was coming off the wall. The tub was disgusting and non slip stickers stained with dirt. The grout was dirty and/or needed to be replaced. The whole room felt like it needed a deep clean. The hotel scent, while pleasing at first- was much too powerful as the days went on. I assume this was to cover up the pet smells. This floor housed the pets and the first few rooms we would hear dogs barking as we headed to our room. Extremely disappointed and we'l choose another hotel next year!
