Awesome place to be. Great hospitality with Dutch-Belgium owners who try to do everything to give you an unforgetable holiday. Amazing food with a great variety. The distance from San Pedro made Protofina Beach Resort a quiet and peaceful place to be, exactly as we love it the most. Lots of things to do. Stunning snorkling and diving at Mexican...

I've traveled the world and my 50 years of life and Belize is now one of my favorite places, including Portofino Beach Resort! My boyfriend has a very stressful, high profile job and we were able to find comfort, privacy and much more at this wonderful hotel. We had an amazing time relaxing in our room or by the beautiful...

We had a great honeymoon at Portofino! The staff were friendly and accommodating. We loved all they had to offer! The only side note we would make is this is NOT close to town. We enjoyed renting the golf cart or taking the water taxi in, but it can be expensive and overpriced compared to the costs in town. The...

Can't recommend this hotel enough. The staff are very friendly and will go out of your way to make you feel at home. They are very obviously knowledgeable about the area and will also even make off-schedule boat trips to drop you off in town. We rented a golf cart and made the ~35 minute drive into town twice daily...

Beautiful resort, clean rooms, friendly staff. The dive instructor was great and the "resort dive" was the best dive my experienced diver friend had been on. There was a ton of sea life to see My only complaint about the resort is that it is far from town. We rented a golf cart (A must!) but it still took quite...

My husband and I went on vacation in Belize in 2016 and stayed at Portofino. We loved it so much that we went back again this year and brought the family with us. The moment we arrived at the dock, we were greeted by the friendly staff who later became like what we felt as being our extended family. Their...

This was our first trip to Belize and we loved, loved, loved this place. The rooms are beautiful and clean, staff was amazing. The food and service were excellent. We also got certified to dive in four days working with the dive company that is right on property. Would definitely go back again!

Rooms and pictures are accurate as displayed and described. Staff is extremely friendly & accomodating. The restaurant has a great selection and service and the food was top notch. It was our first time to Belize and this did not dissapoint. Close to town but secluded enough for privacy.

Characterized by its warm and friendly hospitality, Portofino is the epitome of barefoot luxury, unpretentious and relaxing… for most; it will be an experience of a lifetime.

It is a haven of tranquility, where guests will enjoy the subtle sounds of the nearby waves lapping over the reef, gentle breeze, breathtaking sunrise, star studded night sky and spectacular views of the crystal waters of the Caribbean Sea. The perfect setting for a romantic getaway, intimate wedding, honeymoon, family and friends.Portofino offers leisure options to suit every taste. Relax in our fresh water outdoor swimming pool; enjoy a great book from our book collection or simply indulge yourself in a massage on the beach under our hand thatched palapa hut. Explore the underwater world with snorkel equipment or skim along the surface in our complimentary sea kayaks. Delicious meals prepared by our resort chef can be served in the privacy or your beach cabana or suite, on our private dock with a romantic setting or at the Portofino Restaurant. Sip on amazing tropical cocktails at the Green Parrot Beach Bar or perhaps a late afternoon snack from the Green Parrot Bistro. Take advantage of our DVD library and unwind in front of the flat TV screen in your room. Or, simply take in the view. In short, relax and enjoy!
