I am literally in heaven – a Belizean heaven that is!
Portofino Beach Resort in San Pedro, Belize is THE definition of paradise and for anyone thinking of the perfect place for a honeymoon, think no longer as this resort fits the romance bill. I for one will definitely be coming here for my second wedding (I just need to find the man first!)
Portofino is an intimate resort tucked away in the North of Ambergris Caye reachable by a twenty-minute water taxi from the main town. Its location gives it total exclusivity and you feel like you're miles away from the bustling centre of San Pedro in your own beach cabana on the Caribbean sea.
No detail has been spared and in each room, you'll find those added touches to make your stay even more special. Bamboo is the theme and these cabanas have such a magical feel to them that you won't want to leave your room.
The Belize Barrier Reef is right on your doorstep but if you don't fancy swimming in the world's second-largest barrier reef, you can just take a dip in the swimming pool or just chill in your hammock. Mexico Rocks are nearby and are one of the best snorkelling trips to see the underwater world of Belize.
You even get to pick your own soap for your duration as Portofino are the first and only hotel that has a Soap Butler in Belize! The soaps are handcrafted in Belize and support the Belize National Youth Chess Foundation which helps teach life skills to children from poor and disenfranchised families. Choose from soothing lavender, jasmine, grapefruit, apple, bergamot or minty eucalyptus.
Your stay here will include the water transfer from San Pedro airport, freshly cooked (and caught) seafood, fantastic service and I can promise you that after you've tried the mango Mojito, you will not want to leave…
N.b I am under no obligation to write this post for Portofino but I was so blown away by my stay that I just had to share, and husband number two if you are reading this: take note!
