I have visited this property several times and always pleased with our stay. Units are specious, staff is friendly and helpful. Love the added plus of bringing what you want or having beach service if you want. Plan to visit again. Lots for all to do and overall a good value but not necessarily cheap.

Gorgeous views. Amazing suite. A great service is that the gate guard checks your room key each time you drive back to the resort to ensure it's working properly before you park and go to your room. We have our own numbered parking space in our tower, so no fear of coming back late and having to park far away....

Fantastic resort. Staff was friendly and curtious. Room was clean and a delight to stay in. The resort offered a large variety of activities for the kids and the adults. Very satisfied overall and would definitely stay here again.

Portafino is a welcoming amazing resort for everyone. They have many activities to choose from and I wish I could have stayed longer. We definitely will be back in the future. The ocean views are spectacular, the food and drinks are excellent, and the surplus of fun activities will keep you occupied for hours.

Service not as good as it could be. Food was good and fresh. Room was clean and comfortable. I did not like having to put everything on a card or my room. One of my room cards was lost at the bar in the pool area.

We became members at portofino about a month ago and love it. We have stayed on property and the rooms are spacious and nicely designed. Kids love the aqua park and water sports. We have the adventure package and it is well worth the money. The staff is very friendly but like other reviews they need to hire more staff...

We had a great trip. The kids loved the adventure cove and pools. The grill/cafe by the main pool was out of sight for a resort pool grill. One small thing, the elevators were fast. We stayed on the 17th floor and I worried we would be waiting a lot. Not the case whatsoever. Add in the sun and sand...

Excellent location for a family vacation. I have referred many of my Wisconsin friends to Portfolio. The access to the bay and ocean along with the great accommodations, make this our favorite spot if we look to go to the panhandle area. Plus is it a doable drive.

We had breakfast two mornings at the restaurant. The first morning the food and service was GREAT. The second morning it was completely the opposite! We waited to sit while there were empty tables in the room, it took a while just to order our drinks, then it took 45 minute to get our food. When we got our food...

From the moment we made a reservation to this resort through their onsite property management to the check in process to the service, everything was done on such a professional level. Every staff member from the housekeeper to the maintenance crew to the trolley driver was super friendly, happy and extremely helpful. Our children had the best time with Captain...
