A wonderful and romantic beachfront option on the more secluded northerly shores of Ambergris, Portofino is owned and run by a friendly European couple who really add a personal touch to the feel and service of this boutique resort. Design is based around the idea of simple comfort with whitewashed walls, spacious rooms and handmade furniture.
There is a pleasant pool area and all room and cabanas offer views of the Caribbean. The onsite restaurant and bar serves excellent euro-caribbean fusion and the option to take a romantic meal on the pier.
The hotel is close to an excellent snorkelling area which can be reached by boat or even on your own using the hotel’s kayaks.
Access to the town of San Pedro is via water taxi and there are several good restaurants within walking distance.
