Ah! 1503, I've grown to love thee. Sitting on two horizons - Look left to dream upon the Santa Rosa Sound. Look right to lose yourself in the Golf of Mexico. Truly an experience to watch the sun rise from your bed. Leave the blinds open. The windows have UV coating to keep your room cool. Privacy is well appropriated.... More

great location and nice facilities. the rooms are nice and is a home not a room or suite to stay in. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Some of our grouped used the onsite food venues and felt they were a great value.

We had a great vacation. The only thing I would recommend is being up front that gratuity is already included (but we're not told) and the elevators are a bit noisy at night....we loved all the staff!

Great place! Large units! Lots to do without leaving resort! We came to look at area to purchase a condo and Portofino has WON! Love the Beach Butlers. Not much in town but everything else is only a 45 minute drive away. Will definitely be returning.

Great location, ample parking (we got 5 spots for a 3-bedroom). However, I did hand-pick the desired room (a specific tower to be close to other friends, main pool view, big beds in all rooms), and the Portofino switched me to a different tower and room without notifying me.

We never had to leave the resort for food or dinner. Everything was on the property which was awesome. We were close to the beach where we wanted to be near friends and the view of the other buildings was quite entertaining.

Portofino ranks very high on my chart, due to several things but largely in part to the staff. The treatment from booking time to check out time was superb. I will definitely be back with the group! Thanks David!!!!
