We enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was very spacious and beautifully decorated. Having 2 parking spaces was great. Beautiful bay views. All of the employees went above and beyond. Will definitely return! Easy check in and out. The only drawback for us was the fact that cash wasnt accepted anywhere on the resort - not even on the beach for the chairs - which was inconvenient - it would be nice if Portofino had signs up that stated that.
Very nice condo in a great resort.....as advertised. The rental process was very easy with no hassles. We have 4 teenage kids and they had a great time. There is lots to do if you purchase the activities package through Portofino.....it's not cheap, but our family definitely got our money's worth.
If I had to get picky.....my kids complained that the pullout couch was not comfortable at all. I haven't slept on a pullout couch in a number of years, but I assume they aren't very comfortable in general. The master bath shower door seemed to be a little out of alignment, so it didn't create a tight seal.
This was our first trip to Pensacola. We really liked the area, this resort and this condo. We don't do repeat stays at many places (like to visit and stay in new places) but my entire family said they would love to come back.
Our family, 2 adults, and 2 children, had a wonderful time at Portofino. This unit was perfect for us. There are beautiful views of the bay. There even happened to be fireworks we could see perfectly from our balcony, which was awesome! The resort had everything we needed for fun. Super close walk to the beach which was not crowded at all. The unit was clean, well stocked with lovely. We would definately want to stay in that unit again!
The property is comfortable and well equipped for a 5 day conference for a group of 5 men. There was ample space and enough bathrooms for sharing. The condo was situated with bay views and was clean, enough kitchen equipment to prepare your own meals and a pull-out bed that was by far one of the most comfortable pull-outs ever experienced - probably because it has a mattress that is similar to a think tempurpedic-like material. Recommended for a family stay-over or a group like ours while attending a conference in the area.
We really enjoyed our stay at Portofino 5-1106. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean! We were traveling with several families who also booked rooms at Portofino and realized that we saved hundreds compared to what they all paid! We loved our vacation and hope to return in the future!
I was very impressed with this property. The beds were comfortable, the unit was nicely decorated and equipped with everything we needed & the view was great! It has a full size washer/dryer which works well, flat screen TV's in every room with several channels, and plenty of towels for your stay. I had read reviews about a lump in the bed & the parking spots being too small, but we had none of these issues! In fact, we were VERY pleased with everything about this Unit. You walk in & immediately feel "at home".
The Portofino itself has a nice gym, a wonderful spa, a small market for snacks & sunscreen and restaurants on property to enjoy. The pool is somewhat small but when you're that close to the beach, who needs a giant pool! You can also rent bikes & mini cars on property, take yoga classes, boat tours, etc.
The communication between the owner and myself was easy, I was able to get my questions answered within a day or less. We did not use the BBQ grill so I cannot review it. This unit was a great choice for our family & we would recommended it!
