Arrival
Michael McHugh, Co-Owner of Dream Makers Vacation Services visited Portofino Beach Resort in April 2018.  Portofino Beach Resort is located on Ambergris Caye outside of San Pedro, Belize.  The only way to get to Ambergris Caye is by plane or boat. We flew into San Pedro then took a boat to the resort, but you could also take a taxi or rent golf carts to get from San Pedro to the resort.

Portofino is a small quiet resort with only 17 rooms.  It has one pool and one restaurant.  The reef is a short boat ride off the resort’s dock, so diving and snorkeling are easy.  The resort also offers complimentary kayaks.  Bike rentals are also available.

This is a family resort, but because of the size of the resort and the quiet atmosphere, I wouldn’t expect many families, considering there are better options for families with children.

Rooms
The rooms at Portofino are very nice.  They are spacious and very Belizian—rustic, but comfortable.  They have 17 rooms.  Most are single rooms (no separate bedroom/living room), but they do have one large mansion.  It can be booked as upper or lower or both.  The Beachfront Mansion is on 2 floors and can accommodate 10 guests total.  The first floor has 2 bedrooms and and a living/dining area with kitchenette.  The 2nd floor has 2 bedrooms and a living/dining area with kitchenette.  Each level has its own bathroom.  The entire mansion is 2000 sq feet.


Restuarants
They have two restaurants, Green Parrot Bistro, lunch & snacks, and Portofino which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  You can opt for romantic dinning onf the beach too.  There are many great dining options off the resort in and around San Pedro.  I can honestly say that every meal that we ate in Belize was good—good quality food and friendly service.
