Portofino Tower 3 2BR Gulf Front - Pensacola. Valentines Special Rates. Spring Break Specials!


Indulge yourself in paradise! Wake up to the sound of the surf and incredible views of the gulf from bedrooms, living area, and your private balcony! Finish the day with views of the beautiful sunset and watching the dolphins cruise the shoreline.

Portofino Resort is referred to as the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Island for good reason. It is the largest development on the island, and the last one heading east, with eight miles of undeveloped Gulf Island National Seashore after it. This 28-acre complex is a uniquely modern, Mediterranean design, state-of-the-art vacation heaven, with something for every one of all ages. Approximately 64% of the entire complex is dedicated to ecological habitat areas, with only 36% being used for buildings, roads, pools etc.

Our unit faces southwest and is the closest tower to the beach out of the five towers, and the only thing you will see looking out the 40 feet of windows and deck is the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. Miles of spectacular breathtaking views of sugar-white sand beaches and seashore…sea, sand, and beautiful sunsets!

Each of the five towers in the Portofino Resort are at least 300ft away from each other, and offer their own large pool and hot tub, along with umbrella tables, chairs, and loungers for sunbathing, as well as, Men's & Women's bathrooms next to the pool.

The $5,000,000, 40,000-square-foot Lifestyle Center has two outdoor infinity pools with two large hot tubs, and an Olympic-size indoor lap pool, as well as a large private indoor hot tub. It has separate men's and women's areas which each feature sauna and steam rooms, as well as private lockers and shower facilities complete with all toiletries. Upstairs there is a state-of-the-art work-out facility with free weights, Cybex weight machines, and True brand treadmills, elliptical machines, and bicycles. There is also a natural juice and snack bar, featuring Starbucks coffee. There is also a special room with personal trainers available for classes such as Yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, spin classes, and many others. Water aerobics are taught in the indoor pool.

There are five, lighted, Rubico Hydro tennis courts on the property. The spa also offers message therapy, facials, and various body treatments.

When you get hungry there is the Terracotta (a fine dining restaurant) downstairs, as well as an outdoor grill restaurant by the pools, and an indoor and outdoor bar. Live music is often featured by the pools. The pool area is situated on the bay side, so you can walk out on the dock, or along the shore for eight miles of undeveloped, uninhabited beach, trees, rivers and lakes.

On both the gulf and the bay side at the complex are one- and two-person kayaks, water bikes, sailboats, surf and boogie boards for rent. On the bay side you can rent jet skis, sailboats, pontoon boat, and other types of personal watercraft. Or you can rent a regular bike and ride the paved walk/bike path for miles. It does not get any better than this!

There is a 65-passenger catamaran that can take you to the boardwalk for shopping, or a dolphin, sunset, or Blue Angels cruise. Or, within a short drive from the complex, you can indulge yourself in every kind of activity possible, including Pensacola Naval Museum, which is home to the Blue Angels and boasts one of the largest, indoor, air and sea museums in the world, Indian Temple Mound, a Civil War-era complex called Fort Pickens (which once held Geronimo), the Gulfarium, a zoo, Five Flags Motor Speedway with miniature Indy Cars for rental, the Seville Quarter with various live music venues, cinemas, horseback riding, shopping, endless antique stores and restaurants, fishing (shore, dock, and charters), miniature golf, motor cycle rental, electric funny car rental, jet ski rental, etc.

The condominium unit is equipped with everything you need to make this home for your stay. This is a two-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath unit, with a king-size bed in the master suite, two separate closets, private Jacuzzi bath, separate shower, and toilet room. The second bedroom features 2 beds and its own private full bath. Each bedroom and the salon has a direct view of the ocean, and a door to the 28-foot balcony, which has seating for four, table, chase lounge, a stainless steel electric grill, and a glass rail to allow un-obstructed viewing of the ocean and beach.
You must be at least 25 years of age to rent. This is a no pet, no smoking rental unit, located 15 minutes from downtown Pensacola, and 25 minutes from the local airport, with taxi service available. Any questions you may have on the complex, services, or area can be answered by the front desk concierge. Tower-3...2BR Amazing Vistas of the Gulf, Sound, and Gorgeous Sunsets!!!

Great for a Family    Jul 15, 2017

review star

The owner, Jack, was extremely easy to deal with and very quick with replies. The unit is equipped with all the amenities you need to make your stay comfortable and make you feel like you are in a home away from home. There are endless activities for the kids to do and it was nice as a parent to relax while the kids were entertained. My 12 and 10 year old boys enjoyed the night paddle boarding, kayaking and of course the adventure water park. The boys also did nearby surf lessons which were a hit as well. My 6 year old daughter enjoyed the endless hours of swimming and the mermaid that came to the pool one day made her trip magical. The pool side and beach side food was also good and you really didn't have to venture out much if you didn't want to. Needless to say, this was an extremely relaxing vacation for all.

Best location in the resort    Apr 22, 2017

review star

Our stay was perfect. This condo definitely has the nicest view in the resort ,the view of the golf as well as the sunset over the sound was awesome. This tower is located closest to the beach compared to the other towers. The condo was perfect, very clean, comfortable beds, plenty of seating in the living room and all the amenities of home. Make sure to bring your snorkeling gear for the sound, plenty of fish, shells and much more to discover. Jack was great to work with throughout the whole process, answered any questions we had with quick responses, also we arrived in town a little early and Jack made sure that the condo was cleaned in order for us to check in early.

The resort has everything you would ever need, the staff is awesome and everyone was very friendly.

We had a great time and would recommend this condo for your vacation.

Thanks Jack for your great hospitality.

Loved our stay at Portofino and unit 1403 in Tower 3!!    Mar 11, 2017

review star

We had the best time at Portofino and loved our condo! Jack was so gracious and nice to work with and answered any questions we had immediately! I cannot say enough good things about Portofino resort and unit 1403! The condo was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. Tower 3 is the closest one to the beach and just a short walk to the ocean as well as convenient to the Lifestyle center that housed the restaurants, spa, workout facility and pools. The view of the ocean from every room was stunning! The staff at the resort were always smiling and so friendly and attentive! We were so sad to leave but definitely would come back in a heartbeat!
