Recent Portofino reviews
"We just returned from Portofino a few days ago and it was by far the best vacation ever!!! We have vacationed in the area for 6 years now and never have returned to the same location the next year..... but we will be going back here next year! They have thought of EVERYTHING!
First off the condo- this condo is on the fifth floor of tower 5. The fifth floor all the condos have extra room on the balconies. So spacious and beautiful. They had lounge chairs and a table to eat on outside. Views were amazing all around and can see the bay and gulf from all over the unit. The grill is weird and didn't leave that yummy grill flavor. It was an electric grill :/ but still made smores on the balcony fun! Also on the areas of the extended balcony the 20 levels above you cant drop things on you. They are just sealed windows above.
Now for the condo- Perfect! You can park your on the 4th floor parking garage and the elevators are just steps from there. The condo is on the 5th floor and the entry is beautiful and roomy. The whole condo is roomy. There were 8 of us staying here and NEVER felt crowded. The master suite is roomy with a huge master bath and closet. The other rooms were roomy too each with thier own bath. The kitchen is well stocked execpt for coffee filters!! The living room has a super comfy couch and TV with tons of channels.
Now for all the extras!!- there is a beach access right across from tower five and was never crowded. The ocean and beach are just BEAUTIFUL! The week we were there the water was so calm almost no waves. There are umbrella rentals you can buy near the first tower or just bring your own stuff like we did and save money. There are floating beds, paddle boards and kayaks for rent on the gulf side. So beautiful! I am still dreaming about it. The bay side has the inflatable water toys. Soooo fun but make sure to go later in day cause they bring more out as the day goes on. We went one morning and that afternoon they had 2 more fun things out there. Sea doo rentals are fun and everybody is so friendly. The dophin cuise was a hit with the kids and the pool with open bar was amazing. The nachos were AMAZING! & lots of yummy drinks. The adventure package is the way to go as everything is unlimited as far as kayaks, sea doos, waterpark, & cruises....pretty much everything is included. I would go back here in a heartbeat and really cant think of anything negative. Just what vacation is all about"

"Pensacola is our favorite vacation spot and Portofino is an excellent resort. Nick and Tina were great to work with, answered our questions and were very professional. The unit has a great view of the gulf and the bay. It was clean and tastefully decorated. Very nice, well equipped kitchen. Nice grill on the balcony. We certainly will rent this place again."

"We had such a great time at this property. The pictures don't really do it justice. It's prettier in person. The place is huge! Everything you need is there. We had one minor maintenance issue but property owner responded immediately and maintenance was onsite same day to fix. We went with our two young children. If I were to complain about anything it would just be the lack of privacy for the bedroom off of the living room. They are pocket doors that don't close fully. We found ourselves having to whisper after our daughter went to sleep but this is the design of the units. It won't deter us in future. Thanks for a great family vaca!"
