Nice place

nice view, clean room, quiet place
the hotel location was great the room was perfect with perfect view since we upgraded our room to one bedroom there, the only big problem was the bathroom, the water had very low pressure and the flush was broken and we even asked them to fix it but it broke again after 5 minutes, except the bathroom that we really had hard time using it for 3 days everything was great.

clean but old

big rooms, clean, affordable breakfast meals
our overall stay at portofino is ok. the location is quite near the known dive resorts (around 50-100 meters). the breakfast included in the room package is good as well. clean rooms and with sala. we have enough space to move around. however, there are a lot of mosquitos in the room/sala. not sure though if it's coming from the trees around portofino or the fact that the place is quite old.

Portofino - Premium 1 bedroom

Location, size of accomodation, staff
The location was ideal for the purpose and the staff were very helpful. However the accommodation (we stayed) I would not describe as "Premium" standard. The room consisted of a full lounge/dining and kitchen area, as well as the expected bedroom and ensuite. The kitchen was very tired with a very old fridge that made very strange noises, and we had to use the freezer compartment to chill items of our own. We never used the full sized stove as there were no instructions on how to, and it didn't look save to be used . I personally would have like to have seen an electric kettle being provided. The bedroom area was acceptable but the ensuite was in dire need of renovation. Chipped and cracked tiles, water stained bathroom fittings and the overall impression of not being renovated for some years. But worse than that was the complete lack of water pressure. Sometimes so lacking I would have been better standing out in the rain to shower! So overall unfortunately the quality of the accommodation was disappointing. Certainly with a small amount of investment the room would be excellent.

Ten day vacation

Staff helpfulness, friendly staff and manageress, always willing to communicate
The Portofino beach resort was a very pleasant place to, stay all staff were very friendly and location was good for me. Internet was limited but most of the island is the same. I would say that this resort would rate three star compared with other four star hotels ive stayed in However with a bit of money spent on it then it could rate four star. They are advertising for a cook and i think the sooner they get a good one then things will improve a lot. Overall though i had an enjoyable stay. And the manageress Donna was very accomodating. And from conversations with her things are to be improved in the near future. Special thank you to Lisa from the bar for pleasant conversations

Poor Condition

Right on the Beach, friendly staff, thats about it
If you are a diver this is a good location if not forget it. The hotel is in need of major updates. First room the A/C worked in the bedroom, butin the main area of the apt it didn't and it was a sauna, couldn't open enough windows or turn on enough fans to cool the place down. Also the refrig didn't work. The moved us to a different apt after the 1st night, again the a/c in the bedroom worked, but the rest was marginal and we had to spray for bugs after the 1st night.

Most staff are not that helpful , noisy aircon

I like the view, the room is clean
It was fine thought given price, breakfast was poor, you have to choose poor coffee and juice only and no refill for that. Most of all, not helpfulstaff!!

Excellent for those who want a quiet moment

Quiet environment, Good location of swimming pool in front of the beach and attentive staff
The food was not bad, but very ordinary. The breakfast serving took a while to serve. The swim up pool bar was fantastic and the bar staff are friendly.
