Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the view is the best. We walked through the double doors of the unit and we were like, wow! Decorated with the taste of New Orleans and the awe of Pensacola. Tower 5 is a great building with quick access to the beach. The tower has its own pool and hot tub. The walk to the main building and main pool was maybe 5 minutes. The Portofino grounds are beautiful so the walk was enjoyable. Loved the reserved, covered parking and use of the beach supplies. My husband loved the zero gravity chair. A perfect home away from home. Thank you!

The condo was clean and view was beautiful. Just as described

  • 5 of 5

Over the past 3 spring breaks (last week in March) I have stayed in Destin, Orange Beach and now Pensacola Beach. I usually get a 2-3 bedroom condo right on the beach. This 2 bedroom condo was a perfect size for my family of 4 (kids ages 10 and 12). The view was pretty. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were incredibly comfy. I was however very disappointed with the resort and the resort staff. I am sticking to a 5 star review because I don’t think it had anything to do with the condo itself and if you are looking for different things in you vacation than us this place could be perfect. Overall we had a great time. I just want to honestly review the resort because I rely heavily on these reviews when choosing a resort.

I was really looking for lots for the kids to do since the weather looked iffy. I purchased the deluxe wristband for $499. I was originally planning to purchase the more expensive ones and I am so glad I didn’t. A woman from the adventure department called me a few days before we left to find out which I wanted. I was asking her about all the different things listed in each package. She had to call me back 3 times because she couldn’t tell me details about what the things listed were. In conversation she also mentioned (thankfully) that the boat tours weren’t running so that’s why I went with he smaller package. The walk to the beach/pool was incredibly long. My kids and I are active and fit but it was just a hassle. Based on the resort website I pictured them riding back and forth on the bikes. Between that idea and the water park, I thought the bands would be worth it. None of the golf carts bikes or scoot coups can be used inside the property. We did take a bike ride down to the nature reserve which was a great time. The water park was fun until the second day when one of the adventure staff told my 10 year old that he saw jelly fish and a bull shark nearby the day before 😳?We definitely didn’t get out $ worth from buying a wristband. The adventure staff seemed very unorganized and never knew the answer no matter what we asked about. Everything from renting scuba gear (not included in the wristband???) to even renting beach chairs seemed chaotic. I mean beach chair rental should be a well oiled machine right? I do have to say they were all very polite and kind just a little clueless. Overall my family enjoys being much closer to the beach and didn’t need to all the activity that was included in the wristband after all.

Perfect views of the beach, pool and sunset! We plan to be back soon!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is absolutely perfectly placed at Portofino. This was our first time staying - and would definitely return to the unit. Great views of the pool, ocean and sunset - and perfect location in the tower. The unit was well maintained - and loved having access to the umbrella for the beach. The kitchen was amply stocked - we cooked a lot. Overall we couldn't have asked for more!
