Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The condo was beautiful with fabulous views of both the Gulf and the Sound! I was very impressed with Portofino. It as just like staying at a resort. Several pools, but the main pool at the Lifestyle Center was great with views of the Sound and a good casual restaurant! Pensacola Beach is the prettiest beach I have ever seen and not crowded like most of the beaches on the Panhandle of Florida.

Hope to stay there again! Loved it!!

Fantastic! Would stay again anytime!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in condo 1-903W and loved it. After living in Pensacola for 4 years, this was our first trip back in over 15 years and staying at Portofino in this condo was the icing on the cake. The condo was exactly as described, clean, spacious and with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. Would not hesitate to stay again in this same condo (just hope it doesn't take another 15 years to get back to Pensacola).

Owner's Response: Your observations are correct. The resort, and especially my condo, are clean and well maintained. For a few dollars more than a 400 sq ft motel room, you get a 28 ft long beach front balcony and over 1,300 sq ft of space with everything you need. The door is always open for a return visit.

Amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

We have been to many beach condos for almost 40 years and the views from this condo we the best we have ever had. The layout of the condo allows for both bedrooms to have the same great view. The resort is very nice (great fitness center, pool food and drinks excellent and prices reasonable, staff helpful and very friendly)

Owner's Response: You are right. The beach views from the 28 foot long balcony are super from the 9th floor condo. You will always get a "good morning" or "how you doing" from the friendly and helpful staff. Thanks for the kind words.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo in an excellent complex. Unit offers a good view of the Gulf and a partial view of the bay. Plenty of room and a relaxing unit.

Great location for beach access, good restaurants (especially Grand Marlin, Flounders, and Peg Leg Pete's) and reasonable drive to mall, Barnes & Nobles and Naval Aviation Museum. Excellent grocery store nearby in Gulf Breeze.

This was our 7th visit to the Portofino Resort and we will return again.
