“Fantastic vacation spot!”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Portofino. Great location away from San Pedro, very relaxing, extremely friendly staff (they made us feel right at home), great food and I could go on and on. We would definitely return to Portofino. We also found the dive master with Adventure Divers located on the dock great and friendly, with dive trips only a 5 minute boat ride away to the reef, with the exception of Hol Chan Marine Reserve which is about 20 minutes away by boat (but don’t miss it-lots of turtles!).
Room Tip: Because we booked late, we stayed in the Honeymoon suite for 3 nights upon arrival and highly recomm…


“Perfect Belize Getaway”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

If you want an island experience, peaceful nights, sand, snorkeling, diving and a paradise view, then you must visit the Portofino. My daughter and I recently spent 2 wonderful weeks at the resort. The experience was excellent from the moment we arrived and one that we hope to never forget. You can’t beat the service – from the wonderful help from Lorraine at the front desk who was extremely helpful in setting up all trip arrangements, to Flora and Alex in the restaurant who really made everyday special for both of us. Both Flora and Alex are true gems and the Portofino is very lucky to have them. Every morning they made sure the coffee was ready to go at 6:30, and allowed everyone to help themselves even though the restaurant really wasn’t open. It gave an “at home feel” to a paradise location. We heard of other restaurants that were good, and had a few lunches in other locations, but just knew we could not top the dinners at the Portofino. The menu is not elaborate, but everything is gourmet, and the special of the day is always something to savor.?When we left last Friday I had to pry my daughter off the palm tree, she definitely did not want to leave. I can’t say “Thank You” enough to everyone who made our trip such an enjoyable experience. I definitely plan to return…
Room Tip: They have rooms to fit anyones needs. If you don’t see what you need on the website, just send…


“Wonderful Stay at Portofino”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

THis is a top notch resort. We loved everything from our tree top accomodations(Sunflower Suite) overlooking the ocean and the pool, to the friendly and extremely helpful staff. All the dive trips and tours they booked for us were excellent and the door to door service appreciated. The staff could not be more helpful. Every request was fulfilled with a smile, including a special birthday dinner out on the end of the pier for my BF. What a beautiful setting under the stars! Many thanks to Lorraine, Flor, Alex and Raphel for taking such good care of us. Definitely recommend this resort if you want a romantic, peaceful and memorable experience.
Room Tip: I would recommend a top floor room . The views are terrific.
