Overall, Portofino is nicely situated, about 5~10min walk from Sabang so it's quiet and next to Action Divers (where we took diving classes) and a wonderful restaurant called Full Moon.
The staff is friendly and accommodating, after we checked-in we asked to see if we can take a look at other rooms and potentially change our room. The staff was kind and arranged another room for us. Every staff we met there had a smile on their face, which was great.
The rooms, unfortunately, are a bit worn down and some of the rooms have a dark wood furnishing. While the rooms are spacious with kitchens, the kitchen counter tops were occupied by ants and the cooking-ware weren't clean.
I would say that the rooms here are good for travels who travel in groups and can utilize the nice big living room but not so much for couples looking for a romantic or pampering getaway.
