We were a big group of 10 persons with children.We stayed 5 nights, check in was slow at 8pm at night. Amazingly we were informed that 20u$ per day per car was going to be charged for parking. which i found amazing!! One of the perks of staying at Either Universal or Disney hotels is having free parking in the hotel and in the parks. Well here not! Rooms inside are a little wore on, in my opinion they need more maintenance.Our room lamp had broken mirror, the ac didn’t worked well and the toilet sink was not working also. Definitely not a 5 star hotel.Rooms inside need a makeover asap! They looked more like a holiday inn!! Pros: starbucks to have breakfast fast and easy in the hotel in case you didn’t want to go to the restaurants buffet. Free transportation to Universal and of course the main reason why we stayed , free fast pass in both universal parks. Also a coffee machine in the room and a small fridge. Collapse

This was our third stay for this hotel, it was every bit as good as I remembered. we got in early and the room was not ready, I was told I would get a text when we could get in but I had to text them after the normal check in time to see if the room was ready. Other than this we had a great stay, the kids loved the beach pool and had a blast with the water slide. The included fast passes were a very useful perk when visiting the parks. The rooms were large enough for a family of four, two queen beds, with a separate shower and tub. I would absolutely recommend getting the club lounge room, an extra 100.00 per day but you get a fantastic breakfast, afternoon snacks and a different hot appetizer/dinner each night which includes unlimited beer and wine. The staff in the lounge was great, they helped one of our group with a gluten allergy, and even wrapped peanut butter sandwiches that my wife made for the kids to eat at the park. There was also soda, water and fruit you could take for later. The hotel is expensive but if you want a trip that is pretty much all inclusive this is as close as you can get. Collapse

An exceptional hotel with an Italian ambiance. We have stayed here 4 times over the last 10yrs and it is still just as great as our first visit. Some prior reviews said this hotel is showing it's age, first it is NOT, second this is the first hotel built on Universal property. Portifino has done an excellent job with upkeep, I have pictures posted that show it. When we arrived the bellman told my husband he was on vacation not to lift a bag just relax, never had his hand out for a tip or made us feel like we had to but we did. Check in was seamless, she explained the property and bonuses that came with it. She gave us a upgrade because we were celebrating me finishing breast cancer treatment and my husband's birthday, Nice Touch! When our room was ready the bellman walked us to our room and gave us tips and shortcuts. Our Deluxe room was LARGE, clean, ac worked great and the beds were perfect. Our room was cleaned everyday, some days a little later in the day but who cares as long as it's done and done well. Not sure why people expect it to be done first thing in the morning with a hotel of this magnitude. Everyone smiled, greeted us through out our stay and were helpful. Service at the adult pool was great. There was always someone near to see if you needed anything. The pool had infused water for guests, another nice touch they've been doing for years. Once again Portifino you made our trip fantastic! We'll be back, Thank You to your Entire Team for making our stay so enjoyable!!! Collapse

The Portofino is a beautiful resort that is beautifully themed and makes you feel like you have been transported to the lovely seaside village it’s named after. This is my favorite resort at Universal Orlando. I never get tired of staying at this beautiful resort. With three pools to choose from there is a pool for everyone in the family. The restaurant choices at Portofino appeal to every taste. On my recent stay I received a call a couple days before my visit by Dalton to ask if there was anything he could do to make sure my upcoming visit would be special. What a lovely, kind young man. On my arrival I was greeted with a smile at the front desk by Melissa. She was very helpful and kind. When my room was ready I was walking back to my car and was greeted by Andy, one of the car attendants. He asked if I would like a cold bottle of water and before I knew it he was standing in front of me with the water. I had the pleasure of speaking with a few more staff members while I was there. Thank you Annabelle for the lovely room over the Piazza. As always my room was beautiful, very clean and inviting. Thank you Ingrid for the delivering extra water to my room. Thank you Michelle for your helpful information. I think it is important to remember to thank the staff who have gone out of their way to make sure you have had a wonderful stay. I’am always blown away by the lovely staff at Portofino. Thank you Mr So and your outstanding staff members for another Fantastic stay at the Portofino Bay Resort. I will be back. Collapse
