We had a very enjoyable stay here, the only negative was that getting breakfast was so slow in the morning. The first day there were lots of people waiting so I figured the kitchen staff were busy and let the issue go. Food was very good when it finally arrived. The second day we walked out after waiting like 45 minutes and were were the only customers waiting in the restaurant. The third day we did not bother to attempt breakfast as we boat to catch back to the port of Batangas and did not have the time to wait. Other than that service was excellent, staff was very friendly as well.
This was my second time staying at Portofino, but will be my last for sure! During our 4th day staying at the hotel something odd was up... Two boss like men showed up with their cronies surrounding the hotel, and soon enough Police were on the scene. None of us had a clue what was happening. Well we soon found out the place was being shutdown immediately, and we had two hours to get out! Luckily we got our refund for the remaining nights, and upgraded to a far superior hotel LaLaguna Villas. Portofino was gutted within two days of being shut down, so if I were you think twice before booking this place.
Needed to upgrade to the big room with seaview.”
We only stayed one night as we had to leave in a hurry because of incoming Typhoon. Cancellation was accepted without a problem. Nice staff. Friendly owner. If you choose this hotel, choose the big appartment.
Enjoyable and relaxing”
Excellent, we had a good time. It was not our first visit and so we knew our way around a little bit and this always helps. Weather was mostly sunny and this makes the boating activities more special. Yes all in all superb long weekend.
completely relaxing. I will return in 10 days.”
I loved it. It was just right for me, not 5 stars, but I didn't want that. The pool was great, the view was great, the staff was great. It was next to the dive shop I used, which was also great, Adventure Diving. It was away from the party scene, which I liked. Yet close enough to walk there if you want. I am returning for another stay in 10 days so obviously it was just right for me. I loved it.
A great place to escape.”
I came to Sabang Beach to relax & dive for my 50th birthday & enjoyd the laid-back atmosphere of this hotel. It had a beautiful garden/bar/pool/beach vibe to relax aropund & was only a 5 min walk from the nearest dive shops. My room was large, cool & comfortable. It had everything I wanted for my stay there.
Great Management, Great staff”
This was our second time back to Portofino, my wife and I both love the quite stretch of beach where the hotel is located next to Action Divers (Highly Recommended) and the management and staff will go out of their way to make your stay more enjoyable, their is a nice small pool and bar area the breakfasts are of great quality, the restaurant has nice meals and snacks at affordable pricing and will also cook up your fresh seafood for a small fee which we done on numerous ocasions. We will be back and would recommend without hesitation
Nice scuba getaway”
Better than expected. I was upgraded because there was renovation going on, but I had only seen one unfavorable review, no good ones. The complaint seemed to be that there were too many people hogging the wi-fi. I was able to get it in my room, though I understand it's not available in every room. I was there for the diving, and while the hotel doesn't have its own diving, they have an arrangement with Action Divers, who are two doors down. I was more than satisfied.
We enjoyed it, would have liked to extend”
We felt well there, we like to come back. No insects in room - most Hotels have them. Swimming-pool, direct beach access: 10m from the bar. Puerto Galera and Sabang with vibrant nightlife are what You are looking for in an island around here. Water is clear and clean. internet not to fast, but ok. No access to the Hotel by car or even threewheeler: no chance! (I am disabled!). Easy access by bangka. Otherwise You have to walk for about 700m from the parking-lot. Poreters available. Dive-shops everywhere.
fantastic views very roomy”
I have stayed here before and just love the hotel.I stayed in a one bedroom apartment with the most spectacular views across the bay.The bedroom was very roomy with a really efficient air conditioner, which you really need. The hotel is in a great location right on the beach but not too close to the night life area so it's nice and quiet. The staff are really friendly and efficient and I will definately be staying here again.I think for what is on offer it's great value for money.
Great... nice relaxing hotel”
my stay at the Portofino beach resort was short, but I enjoyed it.... big clean room that was equipped with a kitchen and utensils. the pool and bar area offer a great view of the ocean. the bar staff was really nice and comforting. the food was good and very tasty
Best value in Sabang for closeness to the water”
we stayed in a premium room looking over the sea, its really the only choice. the rooms are just ok, nothing fancy, the bed comfortable. ac worked fine & wasnt noisy but only available in the bedroom, not in the other room. when you arrive by boat be aware that its about a 10 minute walk along the beach & paths which are so so smooth, so having the staff help you carry your bags is very important.just give them a tip, they deserve it.when you arrive you will be hounded by lots of sellers of boatmen to trinkets. be nice to them, there is a big differnce to other locations, we really got to know them & so friendly, even if you dont buy. we tried the boat trips for snorkling which was great value. for 700 pesos , 2 hours being dragged along , like superman, over coral , big clams & fish. if the weather is not rough, just go in a small boat, otherwise you will need to pay for 2 boats, one bigger at first, then a smaller one to reach the best snorkeling areas.a trip to white beach is worth it, but its cheaper by road than boat. you can make a day of it for 120 pesos each way by jeepnee & trike or pay 1200 for a boat if the weather is ok.dont forget to bargain with the boat people, they will reduce for you if you persevere. the food was ok here, breakfast is included but you only get a basic serve with more food available at extra cost.we did eat here a few times but there is so much on offer along the beach towards sabang, its worth trying. im already missing the view from our balcony, its so good the the money.
Great Hotel. Good Food and Service”
If you want a place to relax this is it. If you are a diver you will be in a great location. No beach to swim if that is what you want, but a short boat ride to a nice swimming area. Within walking distance to town.
Ä Couple Get Away ”
It was a wonderful experience staying at the Portofino Beach resort. I enjoyed all the features of the hotel the service and specially the room and the foods. It was a perfect vacation for a couple like us. So I can recommend Portofino Beach Resort for a place for a Honeymoon for a newly wed, so they can have enjoy and memorable time for each other.
A Nice Getaway”
Pretty much every thing was great and the staff and owner were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and A/C ran super cold! A few electrical outlets were faulty and the cable/tv connection was very loose. Could use some upgrades in some appliances like the refrigerator but again, wonderful for the price!
Great location on waterfront.”
We had no idea of what was at La Laguna apart from diving. We had a fantastic time staying at Portofino. The room and bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful while allowing for privacy and relaxation. Portofino has absolutely beautiful views across the bay and we were able to book our dives from Action Dives next door to our room. We were able to walk along the beach to any of the many restaurants and easily booked boats for snorkling,etc from in front of resort..Fantastic.
Nice spacious room (standard studio)”
nice spacious room with kitchenette, no water boiler but gas plates for boling water in a pan. outside sheltered sitting area. we enjoyed our stay, quite place to relax away from the shops and the nightlife (10 mins walk), friendly staff. the swimming pool unfortunately was very small, without any sunbeds.
lovely hotel with spacious apartments”
Stayed here for 5 nights. the location is great if you are a diver and you can easily get a jeepny(600 pesos) to whitebeach if you want to relax. The rooms were really spacious and had a fully equipped kitchen and a terrace facing the beach. its a 5 minute walk from central so at night ypu avoid the loud music from all the clubs and bars. The hotell staff was friendly and the breakfast was really good.
Excellent location, clean rooms”
It was very convinient place for diving trips organisations. Excellent and not expensive food (we tried some nearby for comparison). It would be better to choose bigger room cause it has separate balcon.
we really enjoyed staying here. it was on the quiet end of the beach, so a little bit of a walk from the jetty, but we found the back way through the shops so we didn't have to do the beach walk. the room was huge, good air con and the resort restaurant was good enough if you couldn't be bothered walking out of the hotel. the included breakfast is a selection off the menu and the banana pancakes and fruit plater are recommended. they also had a quick and cheap laundry service.
