Beautiful Establishment

Portofino Bay is a beautiful place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The resort style hotel is awesome. The water taxi is so relaxing and calming, just ride it for the experience. The rooms are spacious and clean and they keep them very tidy during your stay.

Not what I was expecting

I was expecting a five star service instead it felt like a three star service, I have stayed at the cabana Bay once and the service was better there and it is considered as one of universals lower price hotels.

Great hotel - not so great for kids
gmsmcniff

Hotel was really nice..very close and convenient to parks. A little pricey. Pools were nice - but not great for kids. There are much better pools at other hotels. The lifeguard staff were like prison guards, marching around and grumbling at everything we did. Made the pool experience very uncomfortable...and we avoided the remainder of the trip.
