AMAZING GULF FRONT VIEW IN PORTOFINO TOWER 3…BEST LOCATION OF ALL 5 TOWERS!

Portofino Resort is referred to as the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Island for good reason. It is the largest development on the island, and the last one heading east, with eight miles of undeveloped Gulf Island National Seashore after it. This 28-acre complex is a uniquely modern, Mediterranean design, state-of-the-art vacation heaven, with something for every one of all ages. Approximately 64% of the entire complex is dedicated to ecological habitat areas, with only 36% being used for buildings, roads, pools etc.
Our unit faces southwest and is the closest tower to the beach out of the five towers, and the only thing you will see looking out the 40 feet of windows and deck is the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. Miles of spectacular breathtaking views of sugar-white sand beaches and seashore…sea, sand, and beautiful sunsets!
Each of the five towers in the Portofino Resort are at least 300ft away from each other, and offer their own large pool and hot tub, along with umbrella tables, chairs, and loungers for sunbathing, as well as, Men's & Women's bathrooms next to the pool.
The $5,000,000, 40,000-square-foot Lifestyle Center has two outdoor infinity pools with two large hot tubs, and an Olympic-size indoor lap pool, as well as a large private indoor hot tub. It has separate men's and women's areas which each feature sauna and steam rooms, as well as private lockers and shower facilities complete with all toiletries. Upstairs there is a state-of-the-art work-out facility with free weights, Cybex weight machines, and True brand treadmills, elliptical machines, and bicycles. There is also a natural juice and snack bar, featuring Starbucks coffee. There is also a special room with personal trainers available for classes such as Yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, spin classes, and many others. Water aerobics are taught in the indoor pool.
There are five, lighted, Rubico Hydro tennis courts on the property. The spa also offers message therapy, facials, and various body treatments.
When you get hungry there is the Terracotta (a fine dining restaurant) downstairs, as well as an outdoor grill restaurant by the pools, and an indoor and outdoor bar. Live music is often featured by the pools. The pool area is situated on the bay side, so you can walk out on the dock, or along the shore for eight miles of undeveloped, uninhabited beach, trees, rivers and lakes.
On both the gulf and the bay side at the complex are one- and two-person kayaks, water bikes, sailboats, surf and boogie boards for rent. On the bay side you can rent jet skis, sailboats, pontoon boat, and other types of personal watercraft. Or you can rent a regular bike and ride the paved walk/bike path for miles. It does not get any better than this!
There is a 65-passenger catamaran that can take you to the boardwalk for shopping, or a dolphin, sunset, or Blue Angels cruise. Or, within a short drive from the complex, you can indulge yourself in every kind of activity possible, including Pensacola Naval Museum, which is home to the Blue Angels and boasts one of the largest, indoor, air and sea museums in the world, Indian Temple Mound, a Civil War-era complex called Fort Pickens (which once held Geronimo), the Gulfarium, a zoo, Five Flags Motor Speedway with miniature Indy Cars for rental, the Seville Quarter with various live music venues, cinemas, horseback riding, shopping, endless antique stores and restaurants, fishing (shore, dock, and charters), miniature golf, motor cycle rental, electric funny car rental, jet ski rental, etc.

Why Jack Danks chose Pensacola Beach
We love Pensacola Beach for its beautiful white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf. Most importantly, it is quiet, peaceful and safe. We had looked throughout the Panhandle of Florida for a second home, and the other beach towns were just too crowded. We didn't want to wait two hours at a restaurant to be seated or get up early just to secure a spot on the beach. The Portofino is three miles from the Boardwalk, where all of the beachfront restaurants and gift shops are with traveling accommodations by way of water (on the Portofino 1), or by trolley. It is also the last resort on the eastern end of Pensacola Beach, with twelve miles of un-touched National Seashore which provides the perfect backdrop for a vigorous run, casual walk or a fun bike ride along the paved unobstructed beachfront. If golf is your game there are plenty of nice courses in the area with the closest being Tiger Point Golf Club located directly across the bay from Portofino! With the convenience of a large city, Pensacola, just over the 3 mile bridge, provides plenty of things to do with its Historic Downtown, Pensacola Naval Air Station, the Aquarium, golf courses, and Cordova Mall. And if you need to take a break from the sun for a day, outlet malls in Destin are only 45 minutes away.
What makes this condo unique
The Portofino has the best amenities of any resort you will find. It is a gate-guarded community, so the only people experiencing the amenities provided are our guests and owners. You are welcome to enjoy eight pools and spas (one indoor), a large Fitness Center, a restaurant that provides pool-side service, five clay tennis courts, Adventure Cove for the kids, and even beach chair service. Rentals of bikes, scooters, jet skis, yolo boards, and the Portofino-owned pontoon boat are options as well! The resort spans from the Gulf to the Bay, allowing great views from every condo and virtually anywhere on the resort. Our Homeowners Association and the Premier Management group have both done an excellent job maintaining and introducing new amenities for our guests to enjoy.
Guestbook comments from the owner
My family and I had a great time at Portofino. The Condo was outstanding with a great view. We found it clean, plenty of space for our group of six, and a great beach. Kids enjoyed the pool which was located below our balcony. Parking was handy and always great to be in enclosed area.Our thanks to Jack and his family for sharing with us.
