I visited Belize towards the end of April with my wife and we had the privilege of staying at Portofino. It was our two year anniversary. We felt so welcomed there from the first day when we were greeted with a welcome drink to the last day when we departed with a coconut water drink. Staff there genuinely cared and put forth an extra effort to make our stay pleasant. They were ready to help us with just about any need even before we finished asking. There was always someone nice at the front desk with a smile on their face. My wife and I really enjoyed coming back to a beautiful room that was cleaned and organized every evening. The staff decorated the room with flowers and even put our things in an organized manner since we sometimes forget to so.lol For our anniversary day they organized a special dinner for us on the secluded deck which belonged to the hotel. It was very romantic and we felt that we were floating on water. We caught some small fish on the deck of the hotel with the staffs help and the Chef there was so kind to turn that into our appetizer without any additional cost. All these little things they did make us feel very cared for and happy. Portofino also has an amazing view and the place is always clean and spotless. We really liked the location of the pool even though we didn't end up having enough time to spend there. You can see the beach and ocean from the pool. Everyone there is very sweet and down to earth which include the owners. They give you the feel of almost being around good friends. I would recommend Portofino to anyone looking for a relaxing, romantic and fun vacation where you are well taken care of everyday.
