Owner's response: "We are pleased the condo met your expectations and that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review."
Just a few days in paradise, sitting watching from the living room (and both bedrooms) the views beyond. Early in the morning you just might get blessed to see Bald Eagles flying from the top of one tower to the other! The stay was comfortable and felt like home. Everything you need for a great stay. I highly recommend this unit for your stay in Pensacola. The property has so many opportunities for a variety of activities. You will love it!
When I walked in the condo, the view took my breath away! The condo was beautiful and immaculately clean.
Each room was decorated so beautifully. Clean towels always available. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, utensils, even coffees and creamers. The stove worked great and we enjoyed cooking for the week. The TV had many Hulu, Netflix, etc to enjoy a relaxing night. The beach was so pretty. Relaxing. The staff was very nice and attentive. We went kayaking, bike riding, dolphin cruise, sat in the sauna, worked out in the gym (what a view). The restaurant food was delish!
Overall, it was a fun and relaxing time! I will be back!!
Homeowner's Response: "Thank you for your beach resort review and comments. We are glad to hear you had a wonderful time and enjoyed the fun activities! If you need anything in the future, let us know."
The property has beautiful outside view and inside, except there's couple things need to be pay more attention.
The floor needed to be cleaned between each check-in. For adults we always have indoor flip flop while the kids only wear socks. We threw away couple pairs of kids' socks because it's too dirty to wash.
It's very nice to have air-flyer but the non-stick pans need to be replaced for all the scratches. No way to fry an egg, so we only have boiled eggs.
There's an incident happened while we stay. It's the condo company. They do wedding event, ceremony on the PUBLIC beach and reception in the condo area.
One evening we took the kids, 1 & 4 years old to the beach. Since the kids are young so we didn't want to go too far away from the beach access. There's a wedding ceremony things set up with some stick-posts circle the boundary near the beach access. No staff was around and no sign to say about time of the event. So while I let the kids played on the sand for about 5-10 minutes then someone moved the stick posts and started to move some chairs.
At this point I thought the event was finished so I started to set up a small tent as a shelter. When I was working on it, a person came to ask us to move to another area for the wedding was going to start. And I agreed and start to move but this guy grabbed my stuffs and dragged away to like 50 feet away. He threw the mess up tent on the sand and walked away. Couple of the tent anchors were left in the sand.
While all these happening, my eyes needed to keep checking on the little kids to make sure they did go to the ocean by themselves.
And since the anchors were still in the sand, I needed to find them. That means I was still WITHIN THEIR AREA. So this guy came again and had to help look for the anchors.
While he was doing this and said " why are you setting tent here?". I explained to him about what I saw and thought the event finished. But he said, "You should not set the tent here in the first place and the event cost $50,000 and we couldn't lost that.".
My son, wasn't there when this happened, told the staffs at the front desk about this and being promised they will follow up and let us know. It didn't. So I talked to them again when checking out.
From the owner: "Thanks for your response. Glad to hear you enjoyed the Portofino. The Resort does host beach weddings in designated areas. The condo has just been completely renovated including floors and dish wear. Thanks"
I’ve stayed at condos in Orange Beach and Destin for many years but this condo at Portifino is the best beach vacation I’ve ever had.
The furniture and decor is absolutely gorgeous and very comfortable.
Sitting out on the balcony overlooking the bay, we were able to enjoy breathtaking sunsets.
My daughter and I will definitely be back!
From the owner: "Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed your beach/bay vacation. If you need anything in the future, we would be happy to assist you."
