The Portofino Island Resort On Pensacola Beach

The Portofino Island Resort is a luxury high-rise located directly on the white sands of Pensacola Beach. This complex is home to five Mediterranean-style towers with two- and three-bedroom condos overlooking the Santa Rosa Sound and the Gulf of Mexico. The condos are independently owned, and furnished, featuring fully equipped kitchens for guest use. Several Portofino Condos are part of the Pensacola Beach Properties program, which means they are held to our top-tier cleaning and management standards.   

With its world-class resort-style amenities, incredible location, and exciting activities, the Portofino has become a family tradition for many Pensacola Beach visitors. We’ve highlighted some of the reasons why the Portofino remains a top resort on Pensacola Beach: 

Perfect Location:  

The Portofino Resort has an excellent location on Pensacola Beach. Enjoying views of the Santa Rosa Sound and Gulf of Mexico, this family-friendly destination is situated on 28 acres of natural beauty near Gulf Islands National Seashore. The Gulf Islands National Seashore is a breathtaking national park with pristine white sand dunes and twinkling emerald waters. Lucky for Portofino guests, they can enjoy easy beach access on the Gulf beaches or relaxation on the gentle shores of the Santa Rosa Sound.   

Nearby, the Portofino Resort is close to offsite attractions like the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk and the Pensacola Beach Gulf Snorkeling Reefs just east of the resort. While the resort is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it is only a short drive to several top-rated Pensacola Beach restaurants and an easy drive to downtown shopping, dining, or events.   

However, you’ll notice that The Portofino offers so many amenities, onsite activities, and attractions that it’s difficult to step away from the fun.
