“Portofino Beach Resort is Paradise”
May 2, 2017

My husband and I went on vacation in Belize in 2016 and stayed at Portofino. We loved it so much that we went back again this year and brought the family with us. The moment we arrived at the dock, we were greeted by the friendly staff who later became like what we felt as being our extended family. Their friendliness coupled with their professionalism is superb! Our snorkeling tours were fabulous. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about the sea life and were eager to share with us. We saw dolphins, turtles, sharks, tarpon, and seahorses to name a few. This family operated resort is a diamond in the rough. We feel so fortunate that we found our paradise at Portofino Beach Resort in Belize. We give them the highest rating with a plus.

“Wonderful stay at Portofino”

We were so glad we chose Portofino Beach Resort for our trip to Belize! The staff was unbelievable and treated us like family. It was a wonderful experience and I hope to go back soon! Our room was very large, comfortable and clean. Additionally, the food was delicious. It is a great choice to stay at Portofino. Having their own dive shop was awesome as well.

“Paradise FOUND”
May 1, 2017

I don’t know where to start. Staff is utterly amazing. They felt like friends. Hugged most of them when I left because that’s how close you feel to them. With it being a smaller resort it’s way more intimate than a regular commercial resort. You are welcomed with a drink and a towel soaked in essential oils. The breakfast provided was just enough, fresh fruit and fresh baked muffin along with a slice of delicious bread. If you wanted more, eggs Benedict was perfect, along with the Belizean breakfast. I recommend the stone crab for dinner, I ordered it twice!! The seafood pasta was also delicious. They have a beautiful romantic table away from the restaurant by the water you can have dinner at. We got engaged during our stay and it felt like we celebrated with family (the staff and fellow visitors of the resort). The flowers on our bed saying “congrats” was a beautiful and meaningful touch. The dive team was highly knowledgeable, went to Mexico rocks. It was just the two of us so a very intimate and fun snorkel trip. Sabdi, Lorena, Stephanie and Raul at the front desk were very accommodating. If we wanted to do something they were ready with advice or would call to make accommodations for us. Marcelo and Rodi at the restaurant were great company. There were many nights we just hung out at the bar and had dinner. The place has such a classic feel to it, I love that it’s not commercialized. They have plush, fresh smelling good sized pool towels you can use and switch out when they’re dirty. My favorite part was the coconut they chopped down for me and stuck a straw in. Then they chopped it open so I could snack on the inside. The thatched roofs were wonderful to sleep under, the wind going through them was so peaceful. Our room was kept clean, with fresh linens and fresh towels when needed. They swept up the sand that was brought in during the day every day. The decor is authentic, and they provided local soaps and shampoos…which actually were wonderful (and I’m one of those gals who uses expensive shampoo). This place holds a very special place in our hearts and we will absolutely come back. Thank you, Portofino! Miss you and will see you next year.

Room Tip: All of the beach cabanas have a great location/view.

“First time to Belize – perfect place to stay!!”
April 30, 2017

Amazing place – even more amazing people! First time to Belize and Portofino and will definitely go back! The staff went above and beyond to make sure our trip was a success. From Mo driving the boat to Sabdi greeting us with cold, eucalyptus scented towels upon arrival – it started perfectly. I booked Portofino after searching internet. Lorena and Dorcas made scheduling the trip easy and answered all my questions. Meeting them in person was “icing on the cake”! Our cabana was exactly as I envisioned – steps from the beach with a great porch to view the ocean and pool. Sabdi and Stephanie were not only very helpful, but so much fun! Spent most of our time at resort eating and drinking – restaurant was perfect and food delicious. Marcelo, Roady, Ivan, Marco and all servers and bartenders made us feel like friends. Don’t miss out on facial and massage on the beach with Isadora and Andrea – amazing! We rented a golf cart a few days and ventured into town and other excursions – loved coming back to Portofino – perfectly located for us. Amazing day at Tranquilty Bay – snorkeling with new friends. Afternoon with Richard snorkeling at Mexico Rocks – sea turtles, sharks, eels, baracuda, beautiful fish and coral. Also, upon recommendation from Sabdi – we booked a catamaran trip of snorkeling to Caulker Cage with Searious Adventures – great day. Added bonus was sailing with dolphins! Thank you Portofino and Belize for an amazing trip! See you again, my friends!

“Beautiful Resort with an awesome staff!”
April 8, 2016

Just stayed a week for our honeymoon with my wife and it was awesome. The staff is excellent Raul, Stephanie, Rody, Marcel and everyone else were very welcoming, helpful and genuinely kind through every interaction we had with them. Our room which was very nice was upgraded at no charge to a suite after our first night stay. The room was fabulous and the accommodations exceeded our expectations. Also, Roberto and Juan with Action divers made our snorkeling and golf cart experience very fun! Thank you to you all for a very pleasant experience in Belize at the portofino resort. We will definitely be back with our kids next year!!

“Portofino Resort great place!”
April 5, 2017

We absolutely loved Portofino
Resort!!! The entire staff was amazingly courteous. Roadie was such fun and he and Marcel are nice bartenders! The front desk crew was always so nice and helpful!! 😉
Roberto was helpful getting trips lined out for us and when our golf cart broke down in town (and even he was not at work) he made sure we had a new one in just a few minutes!
Even though it’s a little far from town we had so much fun traveling to town in the golf cart. I definitely recommend this little quaint and quiet resort to anyone who wants a peaceful vacation in Belize.

What a wonderful place! Not only is it beautiful, but everything about Portofino is terrific! From the moment you arrive, the staff is top notch! I have rarely stayed at a place where everyone on the staff is truly exceptional. Stephanie at the front desk is there to help you with anything. Marcel and Rody are the best bar tenders ever! Raul is always there to make sure everything is perfect. Our guide for snorkeling and fishing, Fedrico, was so knowledgable and fun. The food was great, the room was beautiful, thanks Anna, and the grounds were fabulous. I shall return!

Room Tip: We stayed in the treetop suite- perfect!

“Excellent customer service, made you feel like family”
March 24, 2017

The staff surely makes the difference. Sabdi, and Lorena at the frontdesk in specific was amazing, from arrival to departure they were always checking up on myself and my son. My pasta was the best ever. George was so helpful with the kayaks, always ready with a smile. The room fairies did an amazing job, the rooms was clean with comfy bed. The location of the resort is a bit far but you get very good options on how to get to town if you need to. Either by boat or golf cart.

Nice continental breakfast with wonderful fruit and homemade bread. Love the bungalow style palm tree leaf roofs. The restaurant was scrumptious with a wonderful atmosphere eating outside! Loved the service and hospitality of Sahid at the front desk. Loved Anna Williams, our cleaning lady. She was a treat on how warm and friendly the local people are around there. Also liked how the resort gave us free water taxi rides to San Pedro!

Second time to Portofino Resort. Great time! Excellent service and also food. Love staying in the beach cabana and all the flowers and flower petals on the bed and around the room and bathroom. Will plan to return again which is something we rarely do. Rarely go to same place more than one time.

Loved our stay here, the staff could not have been nicer. Any request we made was met with an answer of ” no problem”. I loved the location and convenience of the water shuttle. A great place for couples if you don’t want the congestion of downtown but are still a short boat trip away. I highly recommend snorkeling or rent a golf cart for the day and take a short ride to secret beach

“Portofino-Perfection in Paradise”
March 9, 2017

We loved Portofino from the moment we were greeted at the dock with a cool towel and a rum punch. Our daughter and future son-in-law wanted to have their dream wedding in Belize and Portofino fulfilled all of their expectations. Lorena helped plan every detail and was determined to make it a perfect day for the bride and groom. She and the other wonderful staff made sure that everything looked beautiful and the wedding ran smoothly. The food was fabulous, the service was great and the surroundings were a tropical paradise. Our beach cabanas were so lovely, but not so modern that they detracted from the island feel. The pool was so nice and overlooked the beautiful Caribbean. We loved the intimate setting of Portofino, making the service so personal and warm. All of our guests LOVED the wedding and we owe a debt of gratitude to the wonderful staff at Portofino. Thank you for a wonderful vacation for our family and a dream wedding for our daughter.

“Excellent! Tropical feel. Will stay here again.”

We stayed in the beach cabanas. It was everything we hoped for. Very tropical feeling with warm hardwoods, hand made textiles and thatched roof. It is 6 miles from town, but the boat taxi is convenient and actually a very enjoyable experience. We also rented a golf cart for a day and biked in to town, both of which were entertaining. The continental breakfast was great – lots of fresh fruit and muffins. The only thing that disappointed me was that the cabana shared a wall and porch with another unit. It was still fairly private, and we didn’t hear our neighbors. The hand-made soaps and shampoo and conditioner were a nice luxurious touch. The staff was friendly and helpful. I thought this was a great value, especially if you want something different than a sterile condo or hotel room. I’d definitely come back and stay here again.

“We picked Portofino based on reviews … SO GLAD WE DID!”
March 7th, 2017

We had just over 2 weeks to plan a 5 night get away. Since we are in the hospitality industry, I immediately hit the review sites. And after hours of reading and searching, only knowing we wanted Belize. We wanted a romantic getaway … this wasn’t the trip where we wanted a rowdy swim up bar … disco, etc. We wanted great food, easy access to amenities, and excellent service. Portofino was a hit in every area, except one small glitch that I would rate a 4 instead of 5 … early morning coffee service was my only small complaint. Small being the key word. I am certified diver, my husband became certified to dive 40′ while we were there … the Dive Shop is amazing! So flexible on timing of dives, good equipment and Richard, our dive master was simply amazing. So knowledgeable about all the underwater sea life and locations to go. The creatures know him and many come right up to eat out of his hands. We dove 4 days in a row … and I just can’t say enough great things about them, Roberto was also a huge bonus.
The Portofino was such a nice change from our previous 3 vacations to the large all-inclusive resorts of the Riviera Maya region. Where the properties are so vast you walk and walk from room to eat to pool/beach … and the Portofino was a nice change. My husband has issues with his back, and walking long distances are difficult. At the Portofino, you are literally STEPS away from everything.
I highly recommend renting a golf cart and go explore San Pedro. Many complain that the resort is so far north from town, about a 30 minute voyage … on yes, rough terrain, but we loved it all. The dining at the Portofino was excellent, and we are foodies, and my husband is a chef. I recommend the Eggs Benedict for breakfast, the Seafood Soup for lunch … and Valentines dinner was as expected, over the top. In town, we loved the restaurant, Hidden Treasure … way south. Ask the front desk to book your reservation. We took the boat taxi into San Pedro and then the restaurant met us at the dock with their van and took us to the restaurant and then back to the dock. So easy. And so wonderful! If you’re looking for an escape from reality … to be spoiled and serene … Portofino is a great choice. I can’t wait to go back!

March 1st, 2017

Beautiful resort with wonderful staff. Great restaurant with bar. Anytime we wanted fresh coconuts all we had to do was ask and they were picked straight from the tree. Private clean beach with hammocks in the water. Although the pool was awesome and clean, the beach is only a few feet away. Comfortable beds with turn down service and beautiful tropical flowers and petals that adorn your room. Thatched roof with AC and ceiling fans. Refrigerator in rooms are stocked daily with bottled water. Personal safe in rooms and complimentary toiletries smell great. 24 hour security guard makes you feel safe. Must snorkel at Mexico rocks and swim with sharks that don’t bite. Recommend this paradise to everyone.

This was a 4 night Chill out after a great but busy tour of Guatemala. We loved the traditional hotel – not too chic, but extremely welcoming and accommodating. Towards the end l reacted very badly to a ‘doctor fly’ bite, and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful, taking me into town, at no cost, to the doctor. They checked that I was ok the next day.

“Great quiet resort that truly has that “Island feel” we were looking for!”
February 25th, 2017

Portofino is a wonderful little resort on Ambergris Caye. It doesn’t have a ton of rooms, and that is a good thing. What it does have is tons of charm, great island flavor, and an excellent staff! The setting is gorgeous, and they offer almost everything you need for your trip- from diving and snorkeling to golf carts and bikes to towels and beach chairs. They also make reservations for you wherever you’d like. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and after seeing most of the resorts on Ambergris Caye (it’s not that big) we were very happy with our choice! There are other nice options, but most are bigger and more stale feeling. Portofino was the perfect choice for an island getaway!

“Wonderfully relaxing holiday”
February 2nd, 2017

My wife and I stayed for a week in January. We had a Tree Top Suite which was well appointed, comfortable and was huge. A balcony complete with loungers and a hammock completed the comforts. The restaurant was very good with lots of choice of dishes, including vegetarian options for my wife: the chef even made a special meal one evening when my wife felt like something different. The bar area, adjacent to the extensive outdooor pool, was always welcoming. The main plus, though, were the staff who were just brilliant. Always helpful, always smiling and always prepared to go the extra mile to make sure that we were happy. Off the beaten track, not for those looking for a party experience, but for a quite, luxury holiday it’s hard to see that it could be bettered. Thanks to everyone at Portofino for looking after us so well.

“Excellent Stay!!!”
January 28th, 2017

My friend and I stayed 2 nights at Portofino Resort and we were wowed! We have always heard great things about this place and finally gave it a visit. We rented a cart in town and drove up- Approximately 25/30 minutes, but the resort can arrange for your pick up from the local water taxi or Tropic/Maya Air. 4 miles of the road is paved and about 3/4 is unpaved- so beware of the unpaved parts as it can be an adventure.
Our check in was a smooth process, Stephanie checked us in, got us a welcome drink and swift away to our room.
We stayed in Toucan, and it was a lovely room, the only small comment, because its not a complaint, is that 1 or 2 of the drapes would not cover the door fully so you dont have that 100% privacy.
We had dinner.. Oh My God! The food is heavenly. We had the Shrimp Bisque and the Conch trio as Apps. unbelievable! The special of the night was fresh caught snapper fillet, blackened, with fresh fruit salsa and cilantro rice. It was the best we have had- no joke! The dessert special was a Mango Sorbet- To die for!
I had heard many great comments about the food and service at Portofino, and I am glad that we got to witness it first hand. Marco was our waiter that night and he was amazing.
The grounds are well kept and the Housekeepers do an Amaaazing job with the rooms. You leave in the evening for 20 minutes and when you get back its like fairies have been in your room tidying up while you were away!
Thanks to the Managers Raul, Jan and Sandra.
We hope to one day return and will definitely recommend Portofino any day!

“A little slice of paradise”
January 19, 2017

We stayed at the beach mansion at Portofino for week in early January and we loved our stay. The resort is small (just 17 bungalows) so there is never a crowd. The room was lovely and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had great a/c and the windows faced the beach. The wifi was fine for the most part, until the last day of our stay. There is a definite peace and calm there that allows one to escape from cares and worries. The on-site dive shop is a huge asset and we booked snorkeling and scuba diving trips with them. Roberto and his staff who work at the dive shop are wonderful instructors and we were very pleased with all the activities they arranged for us. Since the resort is small, this means that there is flexibility and the staff really plan around the guests’ wishes. We took the boat into town a couple of times to go out to dinner in San Pedro which was also quite convenient. The one downside is that the coast is so shallow there that swimming from the beach is not much of an option, but this is the case for most of Ambergis Caye. One of the main upsides is that Portofino is located literally a 10 minute boat ride away from Mexico Rocks, one of the best places to go snorkeling and scuba diving in the area.

Just to confirm this was the best place to stay in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye we traveled up and down the beach and there wasn’t another place like it. We stayed there over the Christmas Holiday and they had special meals. The staff was very friendly and helpful on deciding what activities to do; like snorkeling, diving, and just renting a golf cart to drive around the island.

Para visitar las ruinas tuvimos un pequeño detalle que no pasaron por nosotros pero, en recepción nos solucionaron el problema, nos contactaron con unos guías externos del hotel y fue un tour de lo mejor, fuimos a las ruinas de Altun-Ha y nos llevaron al santuario de los monos voladores, una muy buena opción para ir de vacaciones.

“The perfect resort getaway”
December 20th, 2016

My wife and I just visited in Dec. of 2016. It is a beautiful resort. The grounds are immaculate, the rooms are beautiful, the beach is kept clean, and I can’t say enough nice things about the staff. They were always friendly patient and right there for any needs we might have. They greeted us on the dock when we got off our boat and took care of everything from luggage to any reservations for any trips we might have. We felt pampered and relaxed. The food tasted great, the drinks were awesome. The staff when not helping other guests were always good for having a chat or just getting to know you. my wife and are planning a trip back. The resort is located about 6 miles north of San Pedro, which keeps you nice and quiet from the main city. A quick 10 or 15 minute water taxi gets you anywhere on the island pretty much, or rent a golf cart and travel and explore the island for yourself. Awesome time and a beautiful resort. Dave and Emily can’t wait to spend time there again.

Room Tip: our room was beach front, but the other rooms that were around the pool were just as beautiful.

There are not enough words to say about the resort and the PEOPLE!! It started with a phone call asking about transportation to Portofino, in which Lorena was fantastic and so helpful in arranging everything for us. We we greeted with nothing but hospitality by Moe the boat captain and the service continued with each and every person we encountered. Raul, Roy, Roberto, Sandra (the owner) and so many more I will get names next time!! The lower mansion is steps from the beach and pool, very quiet. Decor was nice and very comfortable. The food at the restaurant was moderately priced for the excellent dishes that were served, we didn’t have one meal that wasn’t over the top! After dinner we would sit on the pier watching the stars with the water under our feet, very romantic! I was just online looking at dates for next visit this spring. Portofino is definitely going to be our new home away from home!!

Paradise Found, Portofino Belize

We are so proud to share these amazing pictures with you, taken by Sondra Davis, who just started her own company called “Flash Focus Photography“.
Sondra was so kind for sharing her pictures with us, and we hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.

When Sondra emailed us, she also wrote us the following review:

“When I first met my husband, we went through the whole 20 questions stage. We discovered that vacationing on Ambergris Caye in Belize was on both our bucket lists. Now being a young married couple, we couldn’t afford it, but we were able to plan the most amazing 10th wedding anniversary trip to our “paradise”. While researching places to stay, I kept coming back to Portofino’s page. There was just something about the raw beauty of the property and I was drawn in. We visited in July of 2013, and it was by far the best vacation of our lives. The staff was extremely accommodating as well as congenial and simply amazing. I’ve in all my travels never encountered a staff like the crew at Portofino Beach Resort. They are ALL top notch. Our vacation was fantastical and effortless upon arrival. Our cabana was impeccably clean and fabulously decorated. The handmade soap was a very original touch, I fell in love with it as well as the fresh tropical flowers. And the food! Oh the food! Superb, we were never disappointed. We plan on making this a yearly tradition, so you should be seeing a lot of us. You may as well adopt us now ;-)”
