Portofino Beach Resort welcomes you to our little piece of Paradise!


A beachfront resort situated on the pristine and unspoiled northern coast of Ambergris Caye, considered by many one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Portofino is a remote and tranquil resort easily accessible by both land and sea. The pace is unhurried…the beaches are white…the water amazingly azure.

With only 17 beautifully appointed rooms, Portofino is undoubtedly a haven of tranquility, where guests will enjoy the subtle sounds of the nearby waves lapping over the reef, gentle breeze, breathtaking sunrise, star studded night sky and spectacular views of the crystal waters of the Caribbean Sea. The perfect setting for a romantic getaway, intimate wedding, honeymoon, and perfect vacation for family and friends.

Portofino offers leisure options to suit every taste. Relax on the beach, in our ocean hammocks or in our fresh water outdoor swimming pool; enjoy a great book from our book collection or simply indulge in an exotic beach massage under our hand thatched Palapa. Explore the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea by embarking on a kayak adventure to the famous Belize Barrier Reef, located just a few minutes away from the Resort.  Savor our delicious meals prepared by our resort chef which can also be served in the privacy of your beach cabana or suite, on our private dock with a romantic dinner setting or at the Portofino Restaurant. Sip on amazing tropical cocktails at the Green Parrot Beach Bar or perhaps indulge in a late afternoon snack and try our Tapas Menu.  Take advantage of our DVD library and relax watching a movie in the comfort of your room or simply take in the view. In short, relax and enjoy!

Our Reception desk is located in our main building and our professional and knowledgeable staff is always willing and happy to assist you. From check-in to booking of activities and tours, offering excellent dining recommendations and directions to and from Portofino, our friendly staff is always eager and always available with a smile on their face.

Access to and from Portofino is primarily by boat, approximately a 15 minute boat ride away.  For our guest’s convenience we offer complimentary boat runs throughout the day but these scheduled times change daily as they are dependent on our guests daily arrivals and departures.  Guests wishing to go into San Pedro for shopping, dining or exploring are welcome to take a ride on any of Portofino’s complimentary boat transfers or take the Coastal Xpress Water Taxi service that runs every 2 hours and can be reserved at the reception.  For the adventurous at heart, Golf carts are also available for rent, hourly, daily or weekly at your convenience.
