Located on Ambergris Caye just North of San Pedro, Belize, Portofino Resort is built on 4.5 acres of land set between the beach and a mangrove lagoon. The resort comprises a mix of cabanas and suites, all of which are located right on the beach and constructed with a rustic décor, including thatched roofs, tropical landscaping, and local artwork. All rooms have their own balconies overlooking the ocean. The hotel offers a restaurant, bistro, and beach bar. Additional amenities include a spa, bike rentals, complimentary boat transfer to nearby San Pedro Town, and complimentary loan of beach towels, snorkels and masks, kayaks and canoes, and books and movies. The on-site dive shop hosts free try-dives in the pool to help guests get acquainted with diving, and also offers scuba certification courses. The Belize Barrier Reef, the largest living coral reef in the world, is just off-shore, making this an ideal location for diving and snorkeling excursions.
