Portofino is the ultimate luxury destination on the entire Gulf Coast of Florida. Our condo is located in Tower 2 which has the unobstructed views of the sound and the beach.

The elegance and opulence of great living is nestled on a barrier island between the sugar white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the pristine Intracoastal Waterway. Portofino Island Resort and Spa is truly a resort community dedicated to the ecological habitat areas that surround the Pensacola Beach site on Santa Rosa Island. Portofino is built around the natural dunes system in one of Florida's most ecologically pristine conservation areas. The Italian Mediterranean ambiance of the five towers enhance the world class design and architecture of the entire resort and spa.

Five elegant towers each separated by 300 feet of ecologically preserved land will feature their own lobby, pool and hot tub, balcony for entertaining, and water views from every room. Elegant columns, domed entryway, arched ceilings and Roman whirlpool baths only begin to describe Portofino’s distinct Mediterranean feel.

You will be hard pressed to find an amenity that Portofino lacks. There are lighted rubico tennis courts, all manner of water sports for exploring both shorelines, bicycle rentals, and scenic nature trails which wind their way out to breathtaking beaches. A private tram will shuttle guests around property (seasonal), and arrangements can be made for charter boat fishing, a dolphin cruise, or whatever your heart desires.

The 40,000 square foot Lifestyle Center at Portofino will indulge you beyond your wildest dreams. Work out in the state-of-the-art fitness club overlooking the bay, take a fitness class, visit the juice bar, order up a massage, and unwind in the lovely atrium hot tub. When you’re through, head for the indoor lap pool, or the outdoor paradise of tropical pools by the bay.

Afterwards, there is no better place to end your day than at Portofino’s intimate wine bar and candlelit Terra Cotta restaurant. Or take your order to go and dine on your own private terrace with sunset views. There is no need to travel to the Italian Mediterranean. Come to a place where luxury is yours and nature still dominates the landscape, right here on Florida’s Emerald Coast... Portofino.

About Madeline Daraio

Hi, we currently live in Colleyville, TX, near Fort Worth and Dallas. Originally from Long Island, New York, but enjoyed living in Orlando and California previously.

Madeline Daraio purchased this tower in 2014

Why Madeline Daraio chose Florida Main North West

We wanted to be able to drive here from the DFW area in one day and fell in love with the luxurious amenities and the great views. We decorated it with top (Elite) furnishings, decorations and amenities to share the very best with you.

What makes this tower unique

The unobstructed water, beach and preserve views from every room are unbelievable. Unobstructed view looking East for 8 miles down Pensacola Beach Island with water on both sides included in the view (both Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Sound. Great view of boats traveling through the intercostal waterway on the Sound. A very serene and quiet location. Nearby the Portofino clubhouse, pool, restaurant,, gulf and sound.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are so glad you like our unit. We appreciate the review and hope to see you again soon.

Pets are only allowed if you are an owner. Sorry.

What a great place to stay, the view is stunning and the condo was perfect! Madeline was great to work with, we only had one issue that was handled promptly. Portofino Island Resort is a fantastic destination; there is something for everyone! I highly recommend and look forward to returning.

Perfect Condo! Amazing Resort!

  • 5 of 5

We needed some quiet, relaxing time away from stress and the world and found it at Portofino! The luxurious environment was inviting and breath taking. We loved our morning coffee on the patio and afternoon cocktails in the very same chair. The in between time was filled with beach walks, beach reading, kayaking, paddle boarding, and wandering the grounds of this beautiful resort. With the bay area on one side and the gulf on the other there is hardly a bad view.

The condo was beautifully furnished and clean. All the necessary kitchen and bath amenities were provided for a very comfortable stay. The patio eastern view was just awesome and perfect for afternoon cocktails as no western sun to contend with!!

Area restaurants were close and delicious. We had a couple of favorites (Grand Marlin for dinner and Red Fish Blue Fish for lunch) which we went to more than once but on the whole no bad experiences.

I would highly recommend this condo for families, couples, or girl get aways. it's absolutely perfect!!

Best condo ever!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo. Excellent view of the sunrise. Spacious, clean.... Feels like home. Portifino is a great resort. Lots to do if you choose to do so, but also great if you just want to sit back and relax. Live entertainment/ band every night at poolside. Loved being able to enjoy the bay/Santa Rosa sound and the ocean.

Labor Day weekend at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Loved it - great condo, great views, great resort - couldn't fault it and didn't want to leave...if I was being really picky I would say would have been great to have some sort of market with the basics in the resort- fruit, food staples etx - we has to drive a bit to find those - but other than that - loved it!

The pictures and description listed sounded amazing, when we got there it was better then we could ever imagine. This was our first stay in Pensacola so we were unsure where to stay. After being there, this is the nicest resort. We've rented a lot of condos in PCB and this was by far our favorite. Every single detail was thought of and you could tell that they really wanted us to enjoy their condo. The 3d tv, beach chairs, and keurig were great bonuses and things you don't find in just any condo. We also enjoyed the grill on the balcony. The lay out of the condo made it feel like a home unlike many condos we have stayed in. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We will be returning to this condo, it our new favorite place!
