Set on a private peninsula about 30 miles from Los Angeles, Portofino Hotel & Marina is a sleepy resort surrounded by sand and sea. As well as easy access to the beach, expect an old-fashioned charm from this quaint retreat, which is conveniently placed for exploring the local area. The dining and entertainment outlets of Hermosa Beach are just five minutes away by car.

Borrow one of the hotel's free bikes and ride the oceanfront path -- it's flat and runs for 20 miles -- all the way up to Santa Monica, or visit upscale Manhattan Beach and the shops in Manhattan Village, both five miles away. Kids will love King Harbor, next door to the hotel and home to a colony of California sea lions.

The hotel's restaurant Baleen is a "a most welcome addition to the South Bay dining scene", says Fodor's. The menu focuses on ingredients from the sea, with dishes such as fish tacos, lobster sliders and ahi tuna nicoise, and there's a daily happy hour (3-7pm) for discounted drinks and apps.

A special make-your-own bloody mary bar -- self-service and all-you-can-drink -- is available on weekends (from 7am-2:30pm) and stocked with flavoured vodkas, spices and garnishes. There's also a heated outdoor pool and a small fitness room.

True to its Italian town namesake, the bedrooms have a Mediterranean flavour. Each is decorated in beach colours and has a private patio or balcony. Some overlook the marina, but the best views are toward the ocean. Upgrade to a suite for a 4-poster bed, double-sided fireplace and claw-foot tub.

From the press:
  • "Interiors are beachy but sophisticated" -- Fodor's
  • "Features include a diminutive swimming pool and a fine restaurant/lounge, Baleen, which feels nautical by day and romantic by night" -- Lonely Planet

The hotel was way overpriced. I wouldbhave enjoyed my stay if I didn't pay so much to st at there. The quality of hotel and rooms did not match the price.

Had to argue with several people about the complimentary breakfast no late check out and no free tap water with breakfast and every surface of room was covered in things to purchase

I expected a lot more - we are familiar with Noble Hotels and love the Kona Kai in San Diego - this hotel was nothing like it. It seemed like more of a converted motel...old furniture, bad layout, dark rooms etc. the staff, understandably give it was xmas, seemed like they didn't want to be there. We had to ask for each package benefit and the room upgrade was a joke.

Dining at Baleens was nice on the water. Our waiter, Jack, was great. The room colors and designs fit the nautical feel near the boats.
Other Comments
The hotel did not have a wheelchair available. I was very surprised, and disappointed. My sister who had a stroke and can barely walk, was physically stressed walking down the long halls instead of riding in a wheelchair. No coffee or coffee cups in the room even thou there is a coffee pot. The frigerator was completely full so we could not cool anything we brought.

When I got home I see they billed my whole stay on my credit card even though I gave them your voucher. Can anyone on your end intervene for me?

The staff! They were friendly, welcoming and professional. The hotel was a nice property but much better with the outstanding service.

It's a great beach/marina location. 20 minutes from LAX airport. It's walking distance to restaurants and bars. 5 minute drive to downtown Manhattan beach. The property is very nice, clean and nicely decorated. It has a "boutique" hotel feel. It's now a new favorite place for us.
