A trip to paradise with top rate service and attention.

Posted on 29 Sep, 2010 in the Portofino Guest Book Category. 1 Comment

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.

Tropical Storm Matthew

Posted on 25 Sep, 2010 in the Portofino News Category. 1 Comment


Dear Portofino Friends and Family,
as you may know Tropical Storm Matthew passed by today over Belize… We had some strong winds and the ocean was very rough. The high tide is going down and the wind is back to normal. At noon our boat left to San Pedro for arrivals and departures. Continental and Tropic Air are flying. Our guests had fun on the beach this morning, taking pictures and shooting videos. We lost a few boards from our dock but we are putting them back as we speak. The sun is now shining over here and it is time to start cleaning up, while our guests are swimming already in the pool.

Kobrie and Brian – Wedded in Paradise

Posted on 09 Jul, 2010 in the Articles about Portofino Beach Resort|Portofino Weddings Category. 2 Comments

Dear Portofino Friends, here we have posted the story from Kobrie and Brian which they have shared with the Belize Tourism Board. Last month they celebrated their first wedding anniversary, CONGRATS Kobrie and Brain! We hope that you will keep on Honeymooning for many more years! – Lots of love from your Portofino Family!

kobrie_brian_2When my husband and I first started looking for places to have a destination wedding, we had a few requirements. A day of travel that didn’t actually take a full day’s time: hopefully. Warm tropical waters, and a sandy beach: a must. Thatched roofs: a priority. A plethora of activities: ABSOLUTELY!! After a lengthy search, we found Belize; it had it all, and then some.

The Portofino Beach resort in Belize was our dream come true for both our wedding and our honeymoon. Beach front, a fantastic pool, beautiful accommodations, an on site restaurant, and, yes, thatched roofs. As a small boutique resort, Portofino offers personal service and truly works with you to create your perfect wedding. Over the first several days we were there, the staff made sure our every request was met. They assisted us in planning day trips for scuba diving and snorkeling on the beautiful reef, cave tubing, ziplining, and tours of the Mayan ruins. They created a special menu for our rehearsal dinner complete with one-of-a-kind center pieces in our wedding colors, designed a beautiful bridal bouquet, and, quite frankly, took my breath away with the floral arrangements designed to be the walkway and alter. Portofino took care of everything! We even had a one-of-a-kind, made on-site wedding cake. After the ceremony, the staff even thought to provide us with a wonderful surprise, by decorating our suite with an assortment of fresh flowers. There was nothing they didn’t think of, or make happen; it was as if the word “no” was not part of their vocabulary.

kobrie_brian_3During our stay at Portofino Beach Resort, we were utterly relaxed, without a care in the world. They helped me surprise my husband on his birthday, with an in suite candle light dinner, and went above and beyond to make us feel special. Over our two weeks there, the staff began to feel like our extended family; people to share a drink and a story with. We have nothing but fond memories and warm feelings for both Belize, and the Portofino Beach Resort. It is a trip we, and our families, still talk about, and one we all hope to repeat in the future.

Did Portofino Beach Resort and Belize meet our expectations and more? “You better Belize it!”
Kobrie and Brian Hodge, Fort Worth, TX
