We rented a 3 bed/3.5 bath condo in Tower 1, beach view, 7 floor, and elite level. The Portofino resort has their own website and they manage properties for their owners. The properties have three levels - standard, preferred, and elite. I picked the elite and it was completely worth spending a little extra money. Out balcony had the view...

My family and I went to what I had previously titled "my happy place" for a fall vacation. The grounds looked beautiful as always. We arrived and went to our room. While it was nice, it looked very worn. There were stains on the sofa and so much clutter around there was nowhere to store our belongings. The owners used...

We stayed in tower 1, condo 705. Beautiful 2 bedroom. We faced the bay and had a fantastic view. Nice furnishings and well appointed. We had dinner in the grill one night and the service and meal were wonderful. Every staff member on the property were extremely nice and helpful. I accidentally left my purse in the restaurant and they...

Our room was on the 10th floor of tower 3, facing the ocean. We were very close to the restaurants and main pool, outdoor activities, the gym, and Starbucks. Our room was very clean and spacious. Each tower has a pool and each floor has a small number of rooms. I loved the floor to ceiling glass in the main...

This is a wonderful place to stay with lots of amenities. It is convenient to both the ocean and bay area as well as being convenient to local attractions. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food at the on site grill was excellent. Our stay included free catamaran cruises for dolphin sighting and watching the sunset. The cruises were...

There was a lot of construction. The condo was very pretty and said it slept 6 but was very tight for 6. There was a 1 am evacuation for half hour for a fire alarm. The beach area was not as nice as expected but we drive further down for better beach area. Do not think I would return

I'll start this review of our wedding day at Portofino Island Resort on a positive note. The venue itself is beautiful, and the food is good. Our biggest complaint was in the responsiveness and communication department. The location has a central coordinator, Jessica who handles all of these events. Typical response time was a staggering week and a half to...
