How to Get There
I love, love, love Portofino and will continue to visit as much as I can (afford). This resort has it all, great views from any room, pools everywhere, restaurants on site and the beach is just across the street. At night there is a trolly that will take you down the "Strip" to restaurants and bars. Pensacola is my absolute favorite gulf coast beach.
My family own a unit at Portofino. We own in tower 5. Every summer we come here and spend weeks at a time on the pool deck. This year the service is better than ever. Macall was our server out here multiple days and is the definition of an amazing server. We also had Bree come by multiple times to make sure our experience was nothing but the best. They have made our experience the greatest ever time and will be coming back to see them. Thank you Portofino for another amazing summer!
If you're looking for a place to relax, read, enjoy the beaches, and unwind --- this is the place. I hope this resort stays true to this vibe for years to come!
If you need cable/tv, wifi, and being close to downtown look elsewhere.
Pros: gorgeous, secluded/peaceful (read between the lines: if you are the type who wants to go out every night be ready to pay for a lot of Lyfts, also means nice and quiet), expensive but delicious food for a hotel, has an outdoor grill, has a spa, plenty of pools, ample space for large groups, very nice staff
Cons: your neighbors can make or break this trip. Also, the first two nights our balcony had large beetles visit, but on the last few nights of our trip I noticed a large roach on our balcony. I stayed here 3 separate times before and never saw one. I heard that roaches are just "normal" in Florida, so perhaps that's just how it is, but I also heard that's not true. I hope that they continue to work on ways to prevent this from becoming a larger problem or that this was just a fluke. I don't think I saw one when we decided to leave the light off (maybe that attracts them?).
I'd return here in a heartbeat. This really is a beautiful resort.
The entire staff at the water recreation area was excellent.
One employee that stands out as an outstanding employee is Tanner Chechak, he is especially personable and attentive to make sure each guest has an enjoyable experience. We had a fun time on the water with Tanner. It was especially interesting when the wind quit and we had to be towed in. We felt safe and confident with Tanner at the helm. It was a wet and wild ride with abundant laughter. Thank you for the memories at the Portofino. Ted and Renee K
My family has visited Portofino every few years since 2010. It has become our go to for family vacations. My wife and I travel to other places and our children are now in their twenties. When we get together Portofino is always our choice. The amenities can not be beat. The condos are perfect and the beach and bay combination is the best. No other gulf beach vacation destination has the bay, beach and amenities that Portofino has and I have vacationed at Panama City, Destin and Orange beach. The staff is so well trained, helpful and cheerful. It is quite and not crowded. I cannot wait to return it is by far my favorite beach location. Each family member can go and do different things and it is extremely safe. Do not miss the Spa, restaurant and beautiful workout facility.
