The Hotel is quite clean and fresh. Has lovely views. Has varying levels including cabanas on the ground floor which has patios with chairs for hanging out in the evening. Several swimming pools which gives the place some diversity. And the beach, another source of variety for bathing and meeting the locals there who sell a variety of things at reasonable prices. There are 3-4 restaurants and 3-4 bars all free, day and night. 3 very healthy meals every day. And even though it is far from the city, the city is accessible by taxi to and from. Taxi is available right on the hotel grounds. In the night, there are concerts and locals selling jewellery and mementos of the island.The hotel area is like a little city within itself.

Room Tip: I personally love the cabanas on the ground floor. As there is a little patio on the outside where you can hang out at night with your friends.

5 friends and I decided to take a trip to Margarita where we decided that we will stay at Hotel Portofino, not for the reviews but because overall it looked like a ideal getaway. Getting there was long because its on the other side but when we got there the place was nice, staff although could hardly speak English was very welcoming and warm. The beach was right at the back of the hotel, three restaurants to choose from, bars and pools. The only thing the drinks were lacking alot needed a more variety. Meals was ok, snack bar nice. The Ac wasnt real cold just cool. The environment was nice. Getting to travel n explore the island was great. But all in all Portofino was a good travel experience.

Room Tip: Because there is no call services available staying opposite the main entrance is better for wifi or right on that building itself.

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for 5 enjoyable days,one little down side was after getting there about 11.30,we had to pay 100 Bs to get our bands if we want to eat because check in time is 3.00pm. Staff was very friendly,food was fine,rooms were cleaned daily,in the room had one big bed and one smallll bed,expect that,dont think about rolling, lol,
Got 25bs for one us on the bus but 30 on the beach,shopping was great at the flea market,make up your mind to spend alot travelling too and fro, 180 to 200bs each way,so its best if you have friends with you to split the cost. overall it was a great holiday,the pool was great,water sports,I won a competition there but did not go to claim my price because my pardner was a spanish man and we were to have dinner together,what can i say to him. lol

Room Tip: Our room was 231 we got wifi their.

my friends and i spent 5 relaxing and enjoyable days at the portofino hotel. the ambience and view at this hotel were breathtaking. hotel had 4 pools, which included a kids pool, 3 restaurants, a snack bar and 6 bars. the desserts and food were of a variety. however, the food were a little to bland for my liking. staff were friendly and nice, however, the language barrier was a problem at times, especially at the front desk...
