Located North of San Pedro, PORTOFINO sits on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Although we are a quiet resort, town, shops and the nightlife are just 15 minutes away by boat. Many of the best restaurants (including our very own La Cuisine) are located north of San Pedro.
As a result of the protection by the reef, there is an abundance of underwater life, attracting many fish, making this the ultimate fishing paradise in the world. The flats offer some of the best Salt Water Fly Fishing in the world.
This resort offers eight beach cabanas with clear and unobstructed Caribbean views, along with three Tree Top suites that are on stilts 10 feet in the air, offering beautiful views over the Caribbean. To the rear of the suites is an amazing view of the lagoon, home to an assortment of rare tropical birds. The cabanas have a superb view of the sea and the sunrise.
All accommodation also offers: air conditioning, ceiling fans, sea facing picture windows, mini bar, and individual interior décor and artwork. PORTOFINO offers one, very special, VIP/Honeymoon Suite measuring over 800 sq. ft. and full of special touches, including Emperor bed, Jacuzzi, special bathroom and furnishings fit for a King.
At our Restaurant, La Cuisine, we combine European specialties, ranging from Italian to Mediterranean, highlighted by what French Chefs call Nouvelle Cuisine. Whether you come for a lunch with the most beautiful view from our balcony, or to enjoy our specialties during dinner La Cuisine is the right place.
Room service is offered to every room, daily housekeeping service and 24 hour maintenance is available for any problems that might occur. We also offer a free boat service to San Pedro Town for our guests, several times per day. Outside of these times, there is the Island Ferry service that runs up and down the island at least every two hours, and can be reserved at the reception.
Whether you come for a relaxing vacation or for an active and adventurous stay, a relaxing massage will do you good. Of course there are more than one possibilities when you are here: you can just stay In Your Room and have the masseuse come there, or you can walk down the beach and go to the Jade Spa.
