Had an amazing visit March 2020. The ENTIRE staff, at Portofino including the fellas at the dive shop — ACTION DIVERS ADVENTURES — were truly top notch! Could not have had a better experience. Highly recommend!

A secluded tropical getaway. Welcoming, exciting, and beautiful. Portofino offers luxury, excellent hospitality, amusements, and dining. From the transportation before arrival, guests are made to feel relaxed and welcome. A variety of activities and suggestions for fun times are provided by the resort staff, and many are available on site. The quiet beach is a great spot for sunrise viewing. The menus for the 3 meals of the day are beyond satisfying. My gratitude goes out to the Portofino staff for an excellent trip!

This a good place, not perfect, but you can tell they want to be. The cabanas are mostly great, there are AC units in each room, a nice hot shower and well sealed doors and windows so nothing crawls in. I stayed in lower mansion. The pool is beautiful and the ground keeping crew maintained it and the beach diligently every day. I loved the hammocks in every corner and the swings. I witnessed first hand the best qualities of some of the staff, the house keeper went above and beyond in helping with laundry, Lester from the front desk actually went in torrential rain to bring my golf cart back, Edward from security came in the middle of the night to walk with me when my golf cart stopped, and the boat captain carried my luggage to the airport. In my opinion excellent service even when the product is mediocre is what separates luxury from budget resorts and this place can definitely get there if they hire more people with this attitude. Reminds me of the level of service at the Grand Hyatt and Ritz. I loved that they provided complementary boat trips to and from the airport. Upon arrival a cooling towel and refreshing drink awaits you. The attitude of island dwellers is generally relaxed but that flies out the window if you arrive at the restaurant 15 mins before it closes... the whole F&B team needs major training. I won’t go into more details because I don’t want to get anyone fired but I think better training and management would make this a true 3 Star establishment.

I wasn't able to make my friend's 40th birthday trip to Belize. But I wanted to send her a gift. Seleni worked with me for over a week to pick the perfect package. The resort had a cake baked for my friend along with a bottle of champagne waiting for her in the room. They also spelled out "Happy Birthday" in rose petals on her bed. The customer service was extraordinary. My friend was so surprised and happy. She also said she had the best time at the resort and the service was impeccable. I am sorry I had to miss out but was really impressed by the courtesy and thoughtfulness of the staff.

Staff was super, good was decent but pricey. Rooms were nice compared to most hotels. The homes next to the resort were falling down and badly damaged from a hurricane a few years ago. The island is quite dirty but the resort was really clean. The resort is quite a ways from anything. There is good diving not far from the hotel.

They knew my daughter by name, gave her extra maraschino cherries on her smoothies, so friendly! Each day was better than the last. Great food, spa services, fishing and snorkeling. Everything was so convenient. We will definitely be back, cant wait!

My husband and I stayed at Portofino for 5 nights during our first trip to Belize and we absolutely fell in love — with the country and this resort. All of the staff is so friendly and happy. Matthew, the manager, made sure our stay was extra special with all of his attentiveness and little extras. When the resort didn’t have cigars on site to sell, Matthew brought some back with him from town the next day. It was things like this that made us feel like we were truly on vacation. The restaurant is delicious. The pool is a perfect size. The accommodations are beautiful. The only drawback was that the thatched roof, as gorgeous as it is, does tend to let in the occasional bug or gecko. Overall, not a big deal and I hate bugs. The spa staff were amazing as well. And the dive shop, located on the premises, was so wonderful to work with. Roberto took me from being paralyzingly afraid to swim with sharks, to actively trying to pet them during our snorkeling adventure. Roberto also suggested taking a golf cart into town — a suggestion I originally shied away from since my only perception of traveling to a foreign country is “stay at the resort, don’t venture out on your own” — not true on San Pedro. This was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip — taking our own golf cart 7 miles from Portofino into town for shopping and lunch/dinner. Even coming back at night feels very safe. Overall, this resort was just perfect.

We just got back from our vacation in San Pedro,. We stayed at Portofino Resort it was FANTASTIC! everyone was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean, pool was great, and so was the food. I will recommend this resort to all my family and friends. When we booked an excursion for snorkeling or Mayan ruins and cave tubing it was so easy. The folks at the front desk took care of everything for us. I recommend renting a golf cart. We thoroughly enjoyed ALL our guides, they were a wealth of information. Very polite, gracious. We had so much fun! I felt like we made new friends. We will return.

First time to Belize — amazing country, beautiful, beautiful resort — perfect for my husband and I. Their are many beautiful countries and resorts in the world, but not all countries and resorts have the "staff" of Portofino Beach Resort and people make the best memories! That included ALL of the staff — from George helping with our golf cart and raking the 'beach beautiful' everyday, Nailea preparing our room beautifully with flowers and all the 'added' touches, restaurant and bar staff — Ivan, Marcelo, Roady, Marco and the list goes on and on… we had many meals and 'social' time at Portofino and all were delicious and everyone catered to our every request. Amazing dinner on the beach with the full moon with Marco was unforgettable. Our trip started with my online search of resorts and my decision was decided by the responsiveness and online relationship with Dorcas and Lorena — they're even more lovely in person! We arrived and Elmer was there to give us a ride by taxi to Mo for our first boat ride from San Pedro to Resort — again a great experience. Sabdi was waiting for us with clean wet towel scented with Eucalyptus to freshen our skin from salt water on boat ride… Sabdi attended to our every request, but most importantly with a smile and great attitude and perfect suggestions for our 'adventures' in Belize. And then there was Ms. Stephanie — full of fun and great at her job.

This is a nice place for sure. We rented the entire mansion and it was pretty clean and the house keeping does a good job. The staff is friendly and helpful. The dive and scuba trips were well organized and the dive team is very nice and looked out for our safety. The reason for only 4 stars is because of a few things. The place is starting to show its age, the food could be better and I think should be cheaper for what it is. Many other great restaurants on the island has better quality food for cheaper. But it depends on who you are and you might disagree. This is only my view.

Nice resort with nice staff — VIP suite large but very sparsely furnished — even had to request a small coffee table — for the price I dare say not really great value for money — complimentary breakfast is continental and consists of I muffin, 2 small pcs of toast and some fruit — obviously everybody orders the egg breakfast or similar — yesterday when we asked if it was possible to get a coffee in the afternoon, the waiter replied they didn't have! And a lot more — this resort is nice but highly overrated and far too expensive for what they give their guests.

I loved it! All of the workers are so nice and helpful. They all did a great job making my stay amazing. The food is a bit pricy (especially dinner) but it all taste great. The ocean is pretty but shallow. I would recommend taking a kayak out and swimming further out. The pool is great and makes up for the shallow ocean. Other than the high prices and a mediocre swimming front I loved this place!

AMAZING! The hotel staff's attention, service (particularly Reese and Dorcas), and the details put into making a visitor feel at home was beyond what I would have imagined. Beautiful property. Seaweed would accumulate at shore every few hours but it was constantly taken care of. The resort's restaurant was great. Must book trips with Ricardo and Marco. They not only made our water trips an enjoyable experience, they taught us lots of the local Belizean culture. Rent golf carts on site. It is more economic and much easier to get to San Pedro than with a taxi cab. You can even hop on their boat free of charge when they are doing a pick up/drop off in town. Wonderful property and great hotel team! I would certainly return!

A hidden paradise in just north of San Pedro Town. Good restaurant which will cater to your needs and private villas that can hardly be faulted (a bit of leaking during heavy rains but otherwise nothing to complain about). Location and the necessity to use the water taxi makes it a bit hard to move freely between town and resort at leisure but if you're taking things slow as you should when in Belize then you won't be bothered.
