Portofino is a beach resort located on Ambergris Caye, one of the main islands on the Belize Barrier Reef. The hotel is a lovely peaceful retreat, with a charming rustic laidback Caribbean atmosphere but with shops and restaurants just a 15-minute boat ride away.
There are eight beach cabanas and three tree-top suites built on stilts. All cabanas have sea views and are east facing - ideal for watching the sunrise - while the suites have balconies with hammocks and the larger honeymoon suite has a Jacuzzi.
This delightful hotel sits away from the bustle of San Pedro, close to an excellent diving centre.
Why we like it
A delightful hotel away from the bustle of San Pedro with excellent service and staff. They also have a soap service where you can choose your favourite scent from a collection of handmade soaps from Punta Gorda. A little bit is sliced off and it's yours to use for your stay!
