We had a wonderful time at Ron and Linda's condo at Portofino. The condo looked exactly like the pictures. We loved the view from our balcony. We would go back to this condo again but unfortunately it is booked for the time we would like to go next year. Will look for the next year. The pool was great. At first I thought it was too warm but quickly got used to the temperature. The small restaurant on site was great for a quick meal. The staff were great. Always very friendly. The rest of the staff was also great. Could not have asked for a better location. We walked almost everyday done the beach. One morning we walked one way which took us about 2 hours and the next we went the other way and that took us about an hour. It was great to be so close to the Marina and we went there several times for supper and just walk around. Thursday was the best evening to go as they has a market set up on that night so there was always a lot of people around. We loved that the grocery store was so close. We would walk every few days to get groceries.
Again thank you so much for allowing us the use of your condo. Loved it.

We had the most wonderful time in this beautiful condo with the most gorgeous view. We walked to the marina for breakfast. We went on several day trips to ziplining and shopping downtown and walking along the malecon. We enjoyed fabulous dinners and relaxed in the comfortable patio or by the pool or on the remarkably clean beach. It was a supercalifraglisticexpialidocious vacation!

Great service, beautiful condo, comfortable, quiet, best view you can ask for. Very close to just about everything, walking distance to the marina and golf, private beach right in front
I really liked the sense of security that I had while being there.

My vacation at the Portofino condo was amazing!!! From the moment that my friends and I arrived we felt like we had entered the world of luxury. The condo was only steps away from the beach and not only had an ocean view, but a long coastal view as well. We were able to see downtown Puerto Vallarta from our balcony!!! It was so beautiful. The condo itself was also gorgeous. The interior was beautifully furnished with a tropical theme (completely appropriate), it was clean, and had more than enough room for my friends and I to sleep and lounge around comfortably. I must admit however, that we did not spend much time inside. There was a bus stop right outside the front of the condo that took us to downtown, and the harbor was within walking distance of the condo. The harbor was so full of life and good food with its many different restaurants and bars. It was truly an amazing trip and I cannot wait to go again. I would definitely stay at the Portofino condo again and i highly recommend it to anyone wanting comfort and relaxation in paradise!!
