Xen Wildman and his wonderful family stayed here with us at Portofino Beach Resort for a well deserved vacation. Born in 1980 Ontario, Canada and moved to Belize at two weeks old. He lived here for many years in Corozal, close to the Northern Border with Mexico.
Xen studied in Belize, Vancouver – Canada, Fort Lauderdale – Florida and also Barnard Castle – England, and is now in the Computer Graphics Industry for many years.
While vacationing with us, Xen made this fantastic drawing called a “Slice of Paradise”!
THANKS a lot Xen, enjoy the rest of your vacation in Belize! We hope to see you again in the future!
I wanted to surprise my husband with a trip for his birthday this year. I did alot of online research and discovered the Portofino resort in Belize. I had nothing to go on but pictures and reviews that I read on their website so I was a little wary about how the pictures compared with the real deal. That worry was put to ease as soon as we stepped off of the little plane in San Pedro and were greeted by the gentleman who drove us down to the dock to get the boat that would take us on our final le of the trip to Portofino. From the time we docked at Portofino to the time we left 8 days later we were treated like royalty and all of our needs were taken care of. The staff was available and helpful at any time of the day; from planning excursions to providing sunscreen,towels and a good book, we wanted for nothing. Since September is the low season to visit Belize we had alot of one on one service from guides on excursions and often felt like we had the whole resort to ourselves. The Restaurant at Portofino provided high quality, great tasting food for every meal and the service was great. The thing you can’t take a picture of to share with friends is the ambience of Portofino. Usually it takes at least a week to unwind and really begin to enjoy your vacation, but by the end of our second day at Portofino we felt like we had been there for a week already and the staff felt like friends and family that were there vacationing with us. I would highly recommend Portofino to those who want to experience the best Belize has to offer. If you enjoy daily boat rides (my husbands favorite part) on crystal clear water, incredible food and service, and an atmosphere of relaxation and top notch hospitality, you will fall in love with Portofino like we did.
