Our wedding at Portofino, for lack of any better word, was perfect!! From beginning to end, the customer service was simply fantastic. From the beach crew, front desk, pool crew and everyone else in between...the service was professional and extremely friendly and engaging. Jessica Jensen is a rock star and I would highly recommend you work with her if you can. She was in all places at one time. I was never once nervous that a detail would be overlooked. Every time I turned around, she was there, offering us whatever we needed. Laura Ennis is a perfect team mate to Jessica. They complimented each other so well during planning and especially on my wedding day. Portofino is a gorgeous venue, but to be honest, the staff made it special!Sent on 05/07/2015

This was the best decision we could have made.Sent on 11/13/2018

I DJ'd a wedding at Portofino, and it was so much fun! You will not find a more beautiful place to get married! Plus their staff is extremely professional, organized and an absolute pleasure to work with. I hope I get the opportunity to perform at more wedding here!
Portofino Island Resort is well kept and nice get away that's only feet from Pensacola Beach. The staff is friendly and helpful, which is nice since the area is like it's own little town. They also have many different activities going on to keep you occupied if you'd like to just kick back and relax.
Beautiful Pensacola Beach location and our favorite venue to play at!
