Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities
Was not impressed by this property. I was There during hurricane sally and they started just leaving updates outside our door so we didn’t know anything unless we left abd I wasnt Leaving bc the weather was bad. They finally started texting updates. They texted the water was going to be turned off at 11pm one night and I immediately went to take a shower and store some water and it was already off. Many people in the actual tower were wearing masks. Very limited food options. Some of it wasn’t their fault bc of hurricane but all in all it was not impressive and expensive for what you get
Stayed 7 nights in Sep 2020

4/5 Good

Loved the resort!
We loved the Portofino Resort location but the room we booked thru vrbo was not the room we got. Not happy about that bc the room we booked had the right number of beds. This room was not in the same tower. I wish we had been notified before walking in to the condo and realizing this was not the same room.

4/5 Good

Great condo but not as advertised
The pictures shown in this listing are stock photos & are not the condo you will be renting. The staff at Portifino were very kind and explained that to me. I was disappointed since I picked this listing bc it had 2 beds in the 2nd bedroom. My daughter had to sleep on the couch and there was no sleeper sofa. We love the Portifino, but will be renting directly from them in the future.

5/5 Excellent

Not the condo that I reserved! I DO NOT RECOMMEND VRBO
Upon arrival I was put in a unit that was NOT the one that I reserved online. I called the front desk and was advised that I’d have to speak w/ a VRBO rep due to booking through them. There was no comparable rooms available so after traveling all day I asked front desk if there was a 3 bedroom available b/c the amount of travelers we had needed to be accommodated by 3 beds. I was given a runaround from VRBO and assigned a case number which I had to use to call back the following day in order to communicate with VRBO and the front desk. I called 3 separate times and got nothing accomplished. I’m guessing everyone is happy because they got paid and I had to dish out more than I budgeted for . Will NEVER book through VRBO ever again.
