A Little Taste of Heaven

October 17, 2012

What a fabulous time my sisters and I shared! From check-in to departure, we were greeted by a friendly and accommodating staff. Upon arrival, we were drawn in by immaculately maintained grounds, and the panoramic views of the Gulf and ocean were truly breathtaking. Our condo was lovely, quite clean, and well equipped to meet all of our needs. Honestly, you could removed all the furniture and amenities, and still gotten your money's worth by the view alone! It was amazing. My sisters and I would spend each morning on the balcony soaking in the astounding view. We took lots of "mental pictures" to take home with us. The multiple pools, restaurants, tennis courts, and of course the amazing lifestyle center are just a few of the amazing perks. We enjoyed them all. We are already planning next year's visit to our little taste of Heaven, the Portofino. Angela Boyd

A slice of paradise!

March 15, 2009

I say slice,because you find yourself between two gorgeous bodies of water. This condo on the 16th floor is exceptional. You won't be able to stay off the balcony! When you get tired of looking at the Pensacola Bay,you can turn your head to look at the Gulf. The rooms are decorated exactly right for a beach condo,with a very practical bamboo rug in the common area. The master bedroom is luxurious and spacious. I felt like a queen! It has a spa tub, in it's own huge bathroom. There is another,smaller bedroom,also with it's own full size bath. The sitting area has a sofa that pulls out into a bed,for kids,or a third couple. There is a third bathroom available for them,next to the kitchen,which is full-sized,and well furnished with utensils and appliances,including a dishwasher. There is a huge gas grill on the balcony. The Portofino property is just great. So many beautiful pools (indoors, outdoors, heated and jacuzzis)! There is an impressive spa,tennis courts, private beach. Etc! Go!

Olya, January, 2013
We just spent a couple days of rest, relaxation, and fun at Portofino. The condo was tastefully decorated with wonderful views of both the Gulf and of the Sound. The property was 1st class with a chance for quiet times, as well as party times. We are very glad we stayed here and plan to book another weekend in the near future!

Bill and Monica, Date of Stay March 7, 2013
Roxolana, we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful condominium. Everything listed in the description was available and we used the washer and dryer quite often. The property was clean and well maintained and you were very helpful in getting Monica set up with the WI FI. We enjoyed the fishing and can recommend our guides to anyone interested in that sport. Hopefully Monica's teaching schedule next year will enable us to come back and visit the area and rent your unit again. Thanks again for your help. Bill & Monica

Angela (Mary Esther, FL) March 2013.
If you're planning a visit to the Pensacola area, this is where!
The view from the 16th floor is spectacular, the accomodations are first class, and the atmosphere is serene and relaxing. We will definitely be back
and will recommend this particular unit to friends and family !

Linda (Wenatchee, Wa)
Dear Roxolana,
The condo was beautiful and everyone at Portofino was very nice and helpful. My family and I had a great time and will definitely recommend it on your site.
Thanks, Linda

Gary A., October, 2012 (Colorado) This is a very well appointed and tastefully decorated condo unit on the 16th floor of Tower 2, with views of both the Gulf and Santa Rosa Sound. The condo was very clean and well maintained and it is obvious the owner has attempted to make sure the unit is "complete". The Portofino Resort is an awesome place to stay and I can't say enough good things about the staff. To a person they were all very professional, friendly, and would bend over backwards to accomodate their guests. This is a great place to stay! I would unhesitatingly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great place to stay in a truly classy resort.

We loved every minute during our stay. Even with some poor weather the first couple of days (it is Fall you know) we had a fabulous time. The condo is everything and more than what we anticipated. Staff was incredibly friendly, and the grounds were pristine and well appointed. We plan to go back as often as our schedule permits. I would highly suggest you tag this one as a favorite destination. In Pensacola there is always something for everyone, and staying at the resort facilitates a splendid vacation!
