Spa Portofino, an exclusive spa featuring Jurlique products, offers new and unexpected standards of personal service. Guests revitalize body and spirit within a 40,000 square foot lifestyle center, featuring customized body treatments, facial or full body massage, and other luxurious salon experiences.

Featuring an indoor Olympic and five heated pools; 5 clay tennis courts; whirlpool spas, saunas, & steam rooms; a gourmet restaurant; seasonal Kids' Camp.

A world of adventure awaits — only steps from your door. Explore eight miles of scenic trails and open beaches. From biking, kayaking, dolphin cruise and sailing to tranquil nature walks, the natural beauty of the area's unique ecosystem affords endless opportunities to merge lifestyle and nature.

The views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Intracoastal Waterway and the National Seashore can be enjoyed from every room in this 18th floor end unit designer condo. Relax and enjoy the waves, the sunrises, and the sunsets.

About Pamela Dean

We are Pam and Wes Dean and thank you for your interest in our Pensacola Beach vacation home.

Pam has been coming to Pensacola since 1987 when her sister lived here. She introduced Wes to it in 1996 and have been coming here ever since that day. In 2002, Wes and Pam decided it was time to bite the bullet and buy a place on Pensacola Beach and we quickly fell in love with Portofino and its plans.

Wes is in the technology business and Pam is in the operations and technology. Wes is a double dawg (BBA and MBA from UGA) and Pam has a electrical engineering degree and her MBA from UGA.

We have 5 children and we enjoy fishing, baseball (Pensacola Blue Wahoos), football (go Dawgs), boating, tennis, lounging, hiking, and reading. We love to walk the Sound out to the Point at Portofino!

Pamela Dean purchased this condo in 2004

What makes this condo unique

This property has perfect access to the beach and to the sound; therefore, if you want to get away from the waves you can easily and quickly do that. The property has many pools to choose from (indoor and out). It has tennis courts and is right next to the Gulf National Seashore, which is great for birding, walking, and spending time with Him!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great way to spend the Christmas vacation. The condo is so comfortable and well equipped to have a wonderful holiday meal. The owner is wonderful to work with and answers questions promptly. We had a nice and relaxing vacation.

Outstanding Condo and excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fabulous! It was much bigger than the pictures portray and was decorated nicely. There were plenty of towels and the kitchen was stocked nicely. There were plenty of beach chairs and toys left over from previous guests which made it nice when we had family come over. The resort is so beautiful and amenities were plenty. The pools were great and warm enough to enjoy but cool enough to be refreshing and were never crowded since there are so many of them. Entertainment down at the main pool was awesome and you can hear them from the balcony at night which we enjoyed. Great view of Tuesday night fireworks from the balcony as well. Beautiful views of the water and the island all around. We enjoyed both the sound and the Gulf sides multiple times. It's a little bit of walk if you are lugging your beach gear but go minimal and it's great. Not the fault of the owner at all but I will say a few things about the resort that are helpful to know up front: 1. The clearance in the parking garage is only 6'3" so if you are traveling with any kind of luggage carrier on your vehicle you will not be able to enter the garage. No big deal as parking outside was never a problem but good to know. 2. The food and cocktails are exorbitantly expensive. I enjoyed a night by the pool listening to entertainment with my sister and we each had 2 Bushwackers. The bill was $60.00!!!! That was the end of that. We made our own from then on. 3. There is little to no communication between the gate attendants and the front desk. Policy for guests changed every time we had one come. I have family in town so we had many. It was ALWAYS a pain and the the gate attendants were very rude to deal with. Just an FYI. The rest of the employees and I mean ALL of them were so friendly and helpful. I compared it to being in Disney more than once. They were great. One note for the owner, the Master bed squeaks so badly it made it difficult to sleep many nights for my husband and I. I ended up going to the couch multiple nights. Please don't think I'm being negative, we had a fantastic two week stay and my whole family loved it. The condo was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in and the elevators were always quick and never a problem. We will definitely be looking to come back next summer. (Maybe you could fix that bed though?) Overall rating....10 easy 10!

Loved Pensacola & Portofino

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 really enjoyed our weeklong stay at Portofino Tower 3, unit 1804. Our kids are ages 17, 15, 11 and 10 and there was something for everyone. The unit is great, very comfortable and spacious with fantastic panoramic views from every room. The patio was very large and included a grill, which we used regularly. There are flat screen TVs and Blue Ray players in every room, and we chose to bring a video game console as one is not included. Portofino is a very nice resort with many services & amenities, and we took advantage of the beaches, pools, hot tubs and exercise facility every day. The options are many – one day on the ocean, the next at the larger pools by the Lifestyle Center, the next at the quieter beach on the sound, and so on. It’s worth saying that the elevators are fast, and when you’re on the 18th floor that makes a difference. We had no issues come up during our stay, but I found the owners very pleasant to work with as we were preparing for our trip.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many places in Florida and in Alabama for our summer beach trips, but this was by far the best place we have stayed. We will definitely be back.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excellent Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent spring break here with our family. We were blown away by the spacious rooms and the wonderful views of the ocean and bay. The amenities were great. We would stay here again.
