Free transfer boat ride from nearby hotel seemed nice until you find out at the end of your dinner that prices are in US dollars (seemed well priced in local currency 2:1), waiter only interested in her own tip (she made sure to let us know that cash was for her and credit card for the entire staff)...felt like a tourism trap not a unique experience for such amazing spot.

We’re staying here for the week and can’t be happier with the cuisine and overall attention from the staff. Happy to go out of their way to accommodate (items of the lunch menu for kids who didn’t find anything to their liking kn the dinner menu). Not many options if you’re not a fish person but otherwise worth the effort for those staying in the area looking for a nice lunch or dinner.

We stayed at Portofino and only ate off property twice. Breakfast is always great. The continental that comes with your stay has the best fresh baked bread and jam. I also liked the fried jacks. Service is exactly like you would expect from Portofino. Friendly and always ready to take care of your request. The dinner special was always full of color and flavors. I can't compare it to any other place on San Pedro because we were content to stay on property for meals mostly. You can have anything from romantic to beach casual and we saw more then one person with no shoes. It was a great touch to an already great resort.

We had the stone crab and it was excellent. Service is great. They also were kind enough to bring us back to our hotel by boat.

We stayed at this resport, therefore, much opportunity to eat. Breakfasts were full of fresh fruit and flavorful eggs (among other options). Lunches and appetizers were substantial. I recomment the conch cerviche. Dinner is what you want it; romantic of the beach, formal or casual in the dining room or, as a guest, in the room. The one meal that wasnt quite right was completely comped. That was very nice. It was not the fault of the chef at all. They made it right immediately. Service was very personable and they aimed to please - successfully.
