Portofino Bay Hotel, A Loews Hotel - Hotel Reviews from across the web

No title - expert review
The premise here is that Mama Della is a middle-age Italian housewife who has opened up her home as a restaurant. Mama is always on hand (this is a coveted job for middle-aged actresses who do a good Italian accent), strolling among the tables and making small talk. The food, which is served family ...

Universal's first hotel is as grand as Disney's Grand Floridian and is a perfect getaway for couples and adults seeking a romantic, upscale atmosphere. This 5-year-old resort is a replica of the village of Portofino, Italy, complete with a harbor and canals on which boats travel to the theme parks. ...

Aficionados of all things Italian will surely recognize the following scene. Rustic white fishing boats drift languidly in a small harbor, embraced by a promenade of narrow buildings that have been painted the earthy, oxidized colors of a Mediterranean landscape. This is Portofino, although it is fa...

Situated within Universal Orlando Resort, this magnificent Italian-style hotel has its guests almost believing they are staying in the beautiful fishing village of Portofino on the Italian Riviera. This magical illusion is created by the sunwashed stucco buildings and cobblestone streets alongside t...

A day near Heaven - user review
The Spa at the portofino bay hotel is what caught my eye. Although the hotel is great making me feel as if i was in a small city away from my hometown. It was great. The spa was amazing and the best place to "hide out" from all...

Nice and clean and worth the money - user review
We stayed 4 nights here during October and had a great experience. The hotel is modeled after Portofino Bay in Italy and it has all the details you'd expect including a sunset serenade by two opera singers plus a great guitarist at the hotel bar. The hotel surrounds a big lake complete with abandone...

Earns its 4 star rating - user review

Definitely our new place to stay in Orlando - user review
A beautifully run, comfortable, excellent hotel. It's very large but doesn't feel that way room service was prompt, the staff was unfailing pleasant and helpful, and the hotel is designed for both children and adults. We visit Orlando every year for the theme parks and this will be the hotel we stay...

Door To Door First Rate Service - user review
From the time we stepped out of the cab to the time we checked out via the TV the service was exceptional. The rooms were clean and the air conditioning was pumping strong which is why we made a last minute change of hotels from outside the park to the Portofino. Based on the reviews posted clean ro...

Beautiful setting...poor service - user review
The hotel is beautiful and we really enjoyed the music in the evenings at the harbor. We were disappointed with the service. For one example: We requested a refrigerator in the room at the time of reservation, confirmed it at check in, and immediately went to the room and called to have one delivere...

Wonderful Hotel - user review
The illusion of being in the Italian felt real, the service was wonderful, we had the deluxe room which was large and very comfortable. We enjoyed the beach pool, the bars and restaurants. We stayed on the property for two days before we ventured off to the parks. We would love to go be back again i...

Experience to cheer, plumbing to fear - user review
On our third extended stay at the Portofino Bay Hotel we had a marvelous time. The room was comfortable, the bay view was soothing as well as exciting (nightly fireworks), and the overall resort ambience was marvelous. There were, however,two problem areas that persisted throughout the week: a) A re...

Feels like Italy -- Almost - user review
Portofino Bay is a hotel that tries really hard to convey the feeling of being in Italy and, by and large, succeeds. The hotel is large but doesn't have that huge, impersonal, conventi...
