Spent my birthday at Portofino. The staff is wonderful and thoughtful. The food at the restaurant is amazing, my husband ordered the special every night. There was seagrass on the beach, but the pool is great, with outstanding sea views. Our room was clean and spacious. We both got massages, which were very good. We had an awesome time.

The property itself is beautiful. Staff is fantastic, everyone learns your first name and refers to you by such. The room was cozy and fairly clean, although there is absolutely no water pressure in the shower. There is a bar on site, drinks weren't watered down BUT you will pay for it. $22US for two mixed drinks was what we paid. That was enough for us to go to town and buy a couple six packs in lieu of hitting the bar. The restaurant was decent quality but again, EXPENSIVE. A couple of steak dinners with tip came out to $100 US. $45 for nails, $150 each for the snorkeling, $95 each for the massage etc. All US prices. After eating a nice, pricey meal, we went down to the beach to enjoy the peaceful view. Moments after sitting down with our expensive drinks, our peaceful evening was interrupted by two teenagers rolling down the beach in a golf cart. Doing cookies, speeding up and down the dock, all feet away from where we were. Needless to say it was not what we had in mind for a peaceful evening. To make matters worse, we later found out one of the juveniles was the son of the owner of the property. The next few nights of our stay, we opted to rent a golf cart and hit the town. In town you will find some of the best tasting food for more than reasonable prices. To give you an idea, we paid $8bz which is $4US for two fully loaded fried jacks in town. About $20US bought us 5 tacos and a chicken fajita at another place.

Absolutely the best time was had as Portofino Beach resort. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and very helpful. Outside of the road through the swamp which was exciting in and off itself and worth further discussions, Portofino provided the base for an amazing ten day vacation on Amergris Caye.

The staff were very nice. Orlene was awesome! The accommodations were just as pictured which was a nice surprise. I selected the King Suite and couldn’t be happier. It was so incredibly spacious and you felt like you had an entire apartment to yourself. The bed was comfortable, the water pressure was great, hot/cold water worked well and the AC was good. It was more humid than normal during our stay so having an extra fan in the room was well needed. I even took advantage of the hammock on our porch. The room came equipped with a mini fridge, room safe and an Amazon fire stick for Netflix etc. there’s no microwave or telephone which makes it less convenient to order food from the restaurant or to contact the front desk. The pool was clean and just steps from our room. We swam almost daily. There was ample lounge chairs and the set up was thoughtful. The restaurant served good food and other than the times we went into town we ate at the Green Iguana for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was delicious and prepared well. After being there for 6 days I wished for more variety. That would be my only complaint. Be prepared with bringing snacks for your room since there isn’t a market close by and nothing is sold on the grounds other than the 3 meals. You’d have to rent a golf cart which is really convenient and cost about $60 for the whole day. Take advantage of massages on the beach-Andrea is AMAZING! Overall…the stay was Magical. We were truly in PARADISE!

The portofino is amazing. Secluded more than in downtown San Pedro, the restaurant is some of the best and freshest food I have ever eaten, and the scenery is breathtaking. I did have a problem with shower pressure during some parts of the day, and I deduce they are just now getting fully staffed and beginning a full property cleanup since covid. The beach has seagrass
