Portofino could be a great honeymoon destination. It is situated north of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye the largest island along the Belize Barrier Reef. Portofino sits on one of the most beautiful beaches on Ambergris Caye, and is incredibly peaceful and quiet. Having said that if you want action then San Pedro with all its shops and nightlife is only about fifteen minutes away by boat.
If what you are looking for in the way of a romantic honeymoon hotel then Portofino is exclusive, select, a bit different, and quite frankly in another class to other hotels on Ambergris Caye.
What you will get here is absolutely top notch service, with daily room service, and housekeeping. The beach is raked clean every morning, and it has drinks served to the hammocks and sunbeds as well. The grounds are immaculate with full time gardeners, and the flowers from the garden are cut daily and placed in the rooms, which is a lovely touch.
You need to be aware that Portofino is only accessible by boat, so you will be met at the airport at San Pedro and transferred to the hotel by boat, and of course this service comes at no charge at all. Similarly there is a free boat service which runs to and from San Pedro town several times a day, and if you wish to travel to San Pedro outside these times then you can book the Island Ferry which runs up and down the island every couple of hours or so.
For accommodation Portofino has eight beach cabanas all with quite superb views of the Caribbean and they get the sunrise. There are three Tree Top Suites on stilts ten feet up in the air whose views extend to the Belize Barrier Reef, sunrise and sunset
The Tree Top Suites are larger with a king size bed, as opposed to the queen size bed in the Cabanas, and the views plus the seating and reading area probably make them more ideal as a romantic honeymoon spot. Better still is the single very exceptional VIP Suite which is a massive 800 square feet and not the least of its attributes is a huge Emperor bed, with furnishings and fittings to match, so it is just the perfect romantic honeymoon spot on Ambergris Caye if not the whole of Belize.
By the way all the accommodation has air conditioning, ceiling fans, television, wireless internet, as you would expect, and they all have picture windows facing the sea.
When you are checking out your prospective honeymoon destination whether it be on Ambergris Caye in Belize, or anywhere in the Caribbean, you will want to be sure that the food on offer in the restaurant is good. At Portofino you can be reassured that Le Bistro which has been newly renovated you will not be disappointed. It is probably the most talked about restaurant in terms of food and experience on Ambergris Caye.
The food is a combination of European, Caribbean with a chef with a French and Italian background, you only have to imagine the quality. Eating out on the elevated deck overlooking the Caribbean is a romantic joy, and a wonderful spot.
There is little doubt that Portofino has the qualities to make it a perfect romantic honeymoon destination hotel spot, and deserves further investigation.
