  • October 2016... Our most enjoyable Fall Vacation yet... Think we've found our Go To destination

    "Our family has vacationed in several areas around the Gulf of Mexico. This was hands down our most enjoyable Fall vacation in the Gulf. We were welcomed to Room 1609 of Tower 4 by a spectacular view of The Gulf of Mexico on the left and the Santa Rosa Bay on the right. The sunset views from this condo are amazing. We found the condo to be very clean, beautifully decorated, well furbished, and met all of our needs. The resort had everything we needed to enjoy the beautiful Fall Pensacola weather. We found all of the resort staff to be very polite and helpful. I would advise anyone planning a stay at the Portofino resort to take some time and study the adventure packages. They seem to be a good deal for those groups who like to play in the water. We enjoyed the ocean and Santa Rosa bay equally well. The Lifestyle Center was top notch. All of the pools and hot tubs were clean and relaxing. We found the fitness facility to be very well equipped with high quality machines and free weight stations. We did leave the resort on a couple of occasions. We enjoyed Fort Pickens (which is another great place to watch the sunset). We also enjoyed the Blue Angels Cruise where we saw several dolphins and received a spectacular view of a Blue Angels practice. As other reviewers have stated, the white sandy beaches were clean and beautiful. The Gulf water was an amazingly clear topaz blue. The condo owner, Iris, was very helpful and responsive. We often book our vacation destinations based on the weather. With a hurricane in the area, we booked very late. Iris made everything super easy for us; check-in was smooth and easy. The only thing remotely close to a negative was probably the funniest. On the day of our arrival, I got a little confused and missed the entrance to Portofino. We drove a few yards down the road and pulled into a sandy area beside the road. BIG MISTAKE!!! While in the sand, forward / reverse movements sunk us deeper into the sand, we were STUCK. Fortunately, I was able to push our car to freedom. Now, we joke about the fact that the first time my toes touched the Pensacola sand was to push our car out. Ultimately, we enjoyed our stay so much. We hope to return very soon and would gladly stay in Tower 4 Room 1609 again. Thank You Iris!!!"

  • Great family vacation!

    "Great condo!! Perfect balcony overlooks the gulf with an amazing view. We sat on the balcony every morning and every night. Very spacious, comfortable beds, nicely decorated. Definitely the nicest vrbo we have ever stayed in! And the owners were extremely helpful and answered requests right away! Great resort! Wonderful for families. Kids activities ongoing throughout the day and evening. Very friendly staff. Lots of pools. Never felt crowded. Easy check in and check out. Beach was amazing! Very short walk. Easy enough for our 5 year old and 2 year old. The beach umbrella and chairs that the owners provide were easily carried down to the beach…and very much appreciated! Plenty of room on the beach, never felt crowded. Helpful info… The kitchen is stocked with all the necessary equipment, but the refrigerator and pantry are empty. You will need to supply everything down to the salt & pepper, trash bags and scrubbing sponge to help with dishes. This was not a big deal, just nice to know ahead of time. The resort is “cashless”. All transactions at the resort must be paid by credit card. The front desk lets you know this at check in. They can load your credit card info onto your room key card, so you only have to carry your room key throughout the day. Again, not a big deal, just nice to know ahead of time. We will definitely come back!! We had a wonderful family vacation. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Dunne for the use of their beautiful condo."

  • Awesome vacation and condo

    "This was our first family vacation at Pensacola Beach and the Portofino tower 5, room 1007, and it could not have been better. The condo itself is just as described on the listing. Beautiful, spacious, huge balcony, clean and easy access to all the amenities. We arrived early and were able to check in right away (about 1:00 p.m.). This resort has everything we wanted to do: sunset dolphin cruise was awesome, wave runners, kayaking, parasailing, spa day, poolside service with great food and drink, live music and activities for the kids, all without having to leave the resort. We like to try different places for vacation each year, but it will be very difficult to try somewhere else after this vacation. Thanks Ron and Ana for the use of this condo and resort. If we do come back to Pensacola, no doubt you'll be hearing from us to stay at your condo again. Thanks so much!!"
