My wife and I had a great time. The staff was terrific. We relaxed on the beach most of the time and Mo took me for a trip to San Pedro to roam around the streets. The cabanas were spacious and comfortable. There is a large choice of TV channels and I was able to see the football playoffs. The staff was attentive and was ready to help with any question we had and with moving chairs to a new location etc. A great place and I would come back again.

I have been trying to find the words to describe this place, but between all the languages my husband & I speak, we have determined there are none. Paradise, Heaven, Calmness, Peace, True Life. The second Mo picked us up & delivered us to the paradise known as Portofino, we were awestruck. Greeted by wonderful owners, Yolanda, Orville (aka Drunken Master) & Dorrell, our trip was unbelievable. I have traveled 95% of the Caribbean, and Belize & specifically Portofino resort blew my mind. We stayed in the Royal Orchid (Honeymoon Suite) & had no complaints at all. Food was fresh & local. The beach was extremely well maintained (raked clean every morning of seaweed). Every single staff member made our trip so enjoyable, to the point were we are in the process of booking for next January. You wont make a mistake with this choice!!!!!!

We have nothing but good things to say about this place. We hesitated because of some recent bad reviews, but once arrived we realized what a great choice we made. We were welcomed by Yolanda and greeted by the manager with a delicious rum punch and a refreshing towel. The 15 minute boat ride from town was well worth the effort. We stayed in a Beach Cabana and o lord what a cozy little room was that! Simple, but sophisticated design with impeccable views on the pool and the Ocean. The Soaps were freshly cut upon arrival and we had a choice of our favorite variety! Never had someone cut a soap freshly for us before. We had multiple dinners in the restaurant, and although there are a few great restaurants nearby, we loved the food and the service. You must try the Conch Trio and the Grouper...the local fisherman brought it in freshly almost everyday at the end of their dock! What else you could wish for? All-in-all we had a blast and hope to return soon to this beautiful place!

We love fishing, and therefore we came to Belize. There are great fishing tours to be organised from the resort. Unfortunately it was quite windy during our stay so a few trips got cancelled...but hey, you can't help the weather! Instead we stayed at the resort and enjoyed the pool, the friendly attentive service and the conversations with Rafael. Alex took great care of us and we enjoyed the food, though service was sometimes a little slow (not to bad!), the quality of the food was great and the Chef even checked on us. We could not imagined a better vacation, if not next time we will pre-order some better weather:)!

We did not stay there but walked down from a rental we were staying just a bit north. WONDERFUL staff. I cannot enough good things about them. Conch was amazing. They even went so far as to prepare a special table with flowers for the night of our Wedding. I WE DID'NT EVEN STAY THERE! Company, atmosphere, food and drinks were great. Highly recommend.
