Celebration of Life Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed over the weekend at this lovely Portofino condo to celebrate the life of our precious 93-year-old mother. Growing up, our family owned a beach house on beautiful Pensacola Beach. Both of my parents dearly loved the beach, as they eventually retired there and lived there for many years. Some of the our families' most wonderful memories were spent on Pensacola Beach. Sadly that beach house was destroyed in Ivan, and my parents moved further inland. Too many years have passed by without a family trip to the beach, so we thought it would be very fitting to celebrate her life on the beach during her birthday weekend. October was her favorite month on the beach. For our weekend there, the weather was perfect and the crowds were few. And the condo could not have been more perfect, with the most fabulous views of the sound and the Gulf. The furnishings and decor were lovely. Everything we needed could be easily found, from extra pillows to a pizza cutter! .The photos on VRBO are very nice, but the condo is even more beautiful in person. The owner was very easy to work with, so gracious and made sure everything was just perfect for us. The Portofino staff members were very friendly and helpful, as well. We decided to stay there every October during mom's birthday weekend to be with family, but next time for a whole week or more!

21st Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary by staying at Portofino. From the moment we walked in the door we were amazed with a view that can only be described as stunning. The unit was VERY inviting and made us feel comfortable. The Jacuzzi tub was very relaxing. Everything was perfect and we could have not asked for a more romantic condo. We enjoyed all the resort and beach had to offer during the day. Then a fantastic dinner at the Terracoota Restaurant located on property. We look forward to returning.

Perfect fun with or without kiddos

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible experience. Lisa was a gracious host from start to finish. Prior to booking, Lisa had excellent communication with me, answering questions and insight of her condo and the Sound. I mentioned my two young sons and Lisa offered many kid friendly items in the condo, and even relocated a pack n play!! We were greeted with friendly service by the Portofino guest office, and everything was a breeze - - check in, parking, unloading.. and the condo - just a beautiful property. The floor plan was perfect and the immaculate view was priceless. We had plenty to fill our days in the resort itself, there were a variety of events offered as well as cuisine. Thank you for the lovely get away! We are well traveled, and this was a pleasant surprise and one worth sharing!

The Alystock's condo at Portofino is beautifully appointed and spacious. After a long, holiday drive, it was such a pleasant surprise to arrive to a turn-key check-in and a clean, comfortable space. The beds and other furnishings were comfortable, and the kitchen was perfect for cooking light meals. Of course, one of the best features is the outstanding view of both the sound and the Gulf! Even though it was Thanksgiving, the resort pools were warm enough to enjoy.

The Best Vacation Home Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My over all review of my stay in unit Tower 2-702 owned by Brian & Lisa Alystock was outstanding ! Their unit was so incredibly beautiful, relaxing, and provided everything we needed being away from home. Big thanks to the owners of 2-702. The balcony view was fabulous only seen at the spectacular portofino resort.

The staff in the gym, pool, and spa areas were all very nice and so professional. I just can't wait to return to this wonderful resort!
