For the place of this resort: I could not say anything about the place because they have the nice place, nice beach, nice view from your cottage and the most important that I’ve observed is that they have a clean area..
Location: very accessible for the customers and to the tourists who love beach. Just a minutes of travel you already there.
Entrance Fee: the entrance fee is not bad for only 120 pesos which we know that Philippines have lots of beautiful beaches to visit and Portofino Beach Resort is one of them.
Room Rates: In my opinion, the room rate for overnight is too expensive although you have the beach in front of your room. It’s the same as the room rate of day time because you can only use the room for 8-9 hours.
But I admit during our visit, I really enjoy the place, the services and off course the clean beach. You can call them for reservations of cottage and rooms.
