The room itself needed some cleaner walls, quieter washer, more kitchen cookware, and a few other maintenance issues. But overall, great experience. I would definitely do it again. We loved the heated pools especially.

Location: We ate at Red Fish Blue Fish & Crabs. Good food! We also visited the Board Walk and Running Wild. Make sure you stop a Publix before checking in.
We had a great time at the Portofino in Pensacola! The staff was amazing! The view took your breath away! The kids had their choice of beach or pool. The indoor pool was perfect for my daughter to get her swim work out in. There was an outdoor pool for each of the 5 buildings. The pool at the Main Spa was great! We were there just after the busy season. So a few things were not "in season"- the blow up slides and the Trolley...but no worries! We spent hours collecting shells and sand dollars on the beach, watched dolphins swim by and watched beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The food was delish and not overly priced. The room was very nice-spotless! It had all of the necessary items to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner. We also rode bikes to the Gulf National Seashore and did some kayaking in the ocean on our last day. Owners and visitors were very friendly as well! A special thanks to Trenton, Nicole and Haylie (and the rest of the staff) for going out of their way to make our trip a great memory!! We will definitely be back!

The condos are very nice, the resort itself was staffed with young kids insisting that they get a tip for taking your money for very expensive rentals like life jackets

i loved everything about this place. The kids always had something to do. The views from tower 4 were breathtaking, views of bay and gulf. And close proximity to big pool. It really is luxury. The price is not unreasonable for everything included. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
