We stayed in tower 3 room 508,2 BR condo for New Years Eve. The views were wonderful. Very well decorated and very clean. Large balcony. The unit had everything we needed. Although, the second BR have very little space to put your clothing. Other than that it was a wonderful unit. I would stay there again.

Booked a two bedroom condo on VRBO. The condo was beautiful, with tiled floors and a gorgeous kitchen. Everything was new, stylish and clean. The complex has 5 buildings and each has a beautiful heated pool and hot tub. The lifestyle center also had two heated pools and an indoor lap pool. The grounds were gorgeous, and the beach uncrowded and lovely.

The buildings are triangular in shape, so not all units are beach view. Some are bay view, still nice but know what you are booking before you do. Because we booked directly with the owner we didn't get the towels or boat ride, but the $ we saved made this a great choice for us.

We will certainly be back to the beautiful Portofino.

I fell in love with the resort as soon as we pulled onto the property. The customer service was wonderful! I was always greeted with a smile. I was supposed to have a facial done and the girl called out unexpectantly due to illness. The girls at the front desk apologized and said they would make it up to me. I was later sent wine and chocolate covered strawberries to my room! Totally unexpected!!

The rooms were nice and luxurious! I've never stayed in a nicer spot. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!!!

Pensacola has come of age! The Portofino is a beautiful, first class resort in a great location. Our room (condo) was spacious and tastefully decorated with magnificent views of the gulf and bay. We were in a 3 bedroom/3 1/2 bath corner unit with expansive terrace. The layout affords privacy yet a very large living area for socializing. We actually held a dinner party for 7 in our suite.

The resort is 5 separate towers each with their own pool and the beach is directly across the street. Add the lifestyle center with fitness/spa and restaurants and there is no reason to ever leave. We will definitely be back for an extended visit.

To top it all off, the staff was great. Friendly and genuinely seemed to enjoy their jobs.

The resort is absolutely stunning. From the beautiful landscaping and curb appeal to the friendly staff. The complimentary water taxi to the Boardwalk is an added bonus. The unit was very spacious and accomodating for a party of 5. The beach staff was extremely friendly and helpful with beach chairs.
We can't wait to go back!
