- Portofino Island Resort & SpaSep 13, 2013
We won a trip to this resort. It was fabulous. We had never been to the gulf area before and we were so pleased with our trip. The resort had several great pools, a wonderful spa, and a great activity area for the kids. The views and the rooms were to die for. We will definitely plan another vacation there!

Lots of room for groups, even family! in the condo suites, with gourmet kitchen, huge terrace overlooking the water. Proximity to the Gulf Islands National Seashore and to funky Pensacola Beach, plus all the usual onsite spa amenities.

It's a luxury condo building, I suppose, but it's perfect for two or three couples or a family because there are 3 and 4 bedroom suites with 3-4+ bathrooms, generous living room, great kitchen, and big balconies -- can cook and hang out. There's a spa and good restaurant but the best thing for us was its proximity to the Gulf Shores National Seashore -- completely undeveloped, unspoiled and beautiful. Saw our first manatee from our kayak (they're big!, not the kayak the manatee) - and it's just so peaceful paddling along.

Portofino Resort is one of the best vacation rentals out there. This is home away from home! Each year our family pack our cars and drive 8 hours to spend a week at this wonderful and relaxing resort. We literally don’t even leave this resort.
Portofino is in Pensacola, Florida which is known to have one of the finest and whitest sand in the world. Why wouldn't anyone want to check that out. From the 18th floor balcony, every morning, you will wake up to a breath taking ocean view and red orange glowing sunrise.
This is really a great place for everyone. People who love to fish, there is a pier that isn’t too far away. For those who love the ocean, the beach is just in walking distance. Portofino has its own private beach which provides umbrellas and chairs or hammocks. For people who like to stay away from the sand, there plenty of pools to pick from. There are two main pools, one is indoor and the other is an outdoor pool.
Portofino even has a spa and separate sauna for men and women. There are complimentary water and fruit for you as well! It is the little things in life that make me smile.
Many of the condo has three bedrooms, two baths, and a half bath. The space is huge!! For the master bedroom, the closet is practically the size of a room. Each and every one of them is decorated differently. Some are modern while others are classic. After being there for 5 years, I have not been disappointed. Also, each condo provides different games such as scrabble or Pictionary, HDTV’s, and free internet. The beds and pillows are just luxurious and even the bath towels are fluffy and soft and might I add complimentary? :D
Besides the pools, each year they have something new for their guest to do. One year they had a viewing party for a movie with a inflatable screen. You can also jet ski or take the boat that they provide to go to the Pensacola Pier where there are gift shops and restaurants. They even have a trolley for you to get you to and fro. My favorite thing I’ve done was rent a bike and biked ride along the coast. The ocean view is just amazing. Every morning I try to wake up early enough to catch the morning sunrise.
Advice and helpful hints:
This is definitely a great place for a romantic getaway or even a family vacation. However, it is best to bring your pots and pans. You’ll more likely have to cook unless you want to eat at the pier. Other than that I LOVE IT!!
If you are looking for a place to relax and chill, (even if you aren’t even a beach person), this is the place to be!

Portofino is an upscale resort located along the coastline in Pensacola, Florida. The beaches are sandy and white. It's a quiet beach town and is a gem along the Florida panhandle. Plus, the resort is nice with a great gym, swimming pool, and resort suites.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers
