Portofino Beach Resort

6 miles N. of San Pedro
San Pedro , Belize http://portofino.bz/index.html
501-220-5096

The Belize Barrier Reef stretches out next to the isiand this resort calls home, Ambergris Caye, making Portofino a popular destination for vacationing divers and snorkelers. In 2001, Belgian owners Jan and Sandra Van Noord left their chilly homeland for Belize to found the all-inclusive location. Thatch-roofed beach cabanas and a selection of suites, including a Honeymoon suite with Jacuzzi, make up the accommodations, and the interiors incorporate local wood and art. Le Bsitro, the resort's main restaurant, uses regional ingredients to flavor European-inspired dishes such as Lobster à la Ritz (whiskey-flambéed lobster, shrimp, and linguini in a cream sauce) or lime and cilantro-marinated pork tenderloin served with grilled pineapple.
