Gulf coast

Furnishings were or appeared to be thrift store purchased.. couches were odorous.. deck furnishings dated and torn... bedding very scratchy pillows very firm 250 count threading at best, as were the towels... nail holes in the walls where pictures were moved... large wooden handled toilet plunger with “ debris” around it sitting on the floor in the washroom... view was very nice... had a good massage... staff friendly and helpful.. condos are at one million plus to purchase so I was VERY disappointed at the room itself...

Excellent facilities for family.

We spent a week in the unit 804 of tower 1. This was a very enjoyable experience, as the resort met all our needs. We had teens, parents and grandparents, all of whom had a good time. Parking was close to the elevator, adequate luggage carts, and very efficient check in. The gate house accurately handled our guest requests. This unit faces both the gulf and the bay so we had great views. Everything was clean and ready for our group, and there were supplies adequate for the first day or so. The balcony grill was a plus, but don't do steaks and leave the doors open or the smoke alarm will go off. The dining and kitchen ware is adequate for 12, and glasses for far more. We had 18 to dinner one night and were able to accommodate them. Given the security, we were able to let our teen girls go about the facilities without worry. Beach towels were provided, and the beach crew handled chairs, umbrellas and water sports equipment. We did not use the bay based adventure facility, but it appeared clean and well staffed. The one tiny flaw was the living room rug need cleaning, but our sandy feet soon disguised this.All in all, very good.

Nice Hotel right on the beach

Pros: The hotel rooms all have views of either the Gulf, the bay, or both all right on the beach.
Cons: The check-in process left my wife and feeling very rushed and ultimately poorly informed to all available amenities.
Location: Secluded, quiet, and clean beaches. Only 4 miles down the road to the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk and public beaches, restaurants, bars, shops, etc...
Our experience would have been far better had all the amenities that were available to us been properly explained at check in. We enjoyed the Gulf beach however the complimentary golf and other "Premiere" amenities were not clearly explained at check in and therefore not fully taken advantage of.

Best Spot in Pensacola!

We have stayed at Portofino twice and had wonderful experiences both times. The condos are spacious and have everything you need as well as spectacular views. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. The grounds are beautifully manicured and maintained.

The Portofino reort was fabulous.

I would strongly suggest that people look into staying at the resort. I am from PA and most people go to North Carolina to vacation, but for the money and the great accomodations you cannot beat this resort. I loved every minute of the place. I would consider retiring there.
