  • My fiance and I toured the space and received our quote from Shelley within 24 hours! We have been continually impressed with her excellent communication. My fiance and I both loved that the ceremony space is waterside but also more private than most outdoor spaces we saw. We also love that the ballroom doors open up so that guests can wander in and out, but not have be outside the whole night and deal with temperature changes. We have a lot of out-of-town guests, so we are happy that they don't have a rent a car for the weekend. Also, the food and drinks we tried at the tour were great, can't wait for our official tasting. Will update with a full review once our wedding has happened, we are really looking forward to having it at the Portofino!

  • We toured The Portofino in early 2019 with their Catering Sales Manager, Kim Coulehan. She gave us the best venue tour we experienced on our search, by far. She has a knack for identifying your needs and helping to paint a picture of the ceremony and reception. On top of that she offered tons of options to accommodate our ideal date, in spite of a full schedule in early Fall. The venue was beautiful - they offer not only hotel accomodations, but a private ceremony and reception space right on the water. Very affordable, especially considering the location and quality of the venue. Would highly recommend to any prospective couple!

  • We had the pleasure of getting married at The Portofino. Everything about our wedding day was just perfect. While planning and organization leading up play a huge part in that, what really ensures perfection is the support of the on-site staff. Only positive things to say about each person on staff that we worked with. To name a few...we were lucky enough to work with Shelley and Nicole. Their attention to detail and responsiveness is on point. They were with us each step of the way ensuring our voices were heard. We are truly grateful to them! At the front desk in the lobby (we encouraged all of our guests to stay at The Portofino)...Krista was a true gem. She did anything and everything she could to make sure our stay was perfect. Aaron was awesome too. And last but not least, Gene at the valet was superb. Anytime we needed to unload or move items from one location to another he was there - with a smile on his face. We highly recommend getting married at The Portofino Hot... Read more

  • I have nothing but positive things to say about the Portofino. We had both our ceremony and reception there in October and everything went so perfectly. It was the perfect size for our wedding of 108 people. Everyone talked about how delicious the food was. The service was seamless and invisible. The getting-ready room was perfect for me, my 6 bridesmaids, both mom and mom-in-law, and a flower girl and auntie too. We were able to use pretty much the entire property for photos, uninterrupted. And the staff was great with answering questions, letting me come by to look at the venue almost every other week during the year before the wedding, and making sure everything ran smoothly. We wanted a water-front wedding and somehow didn't come upon this as a venue in our initial search - but I'm SO HAPPY we found it. It was exactly what we wanted and everything was just beautiful. And they offer better discounts than most for having your wedding not on a Saturday (our wedding was on a Sunday), s... Read more

  • My daughter got married at the Portofino in October, 2017. They were more than accommodating working with us every step of the way. The location is beautiful. I have been telling everyone that this is "THE" place for a wedding and reception. The happy couple can't wait to spend their one year anniversary back here.

  • We had our wedding at the Portofino Hotel in October 2019 and the hotel will always bring me such happy memories. The views from the ceremony/reception are unforgettable, true nostalgia when I think back to them now. Staying at the hotel during our weekend was magical too, with the views of the ocean from our bridal room. The sunset on our evening from the ballroom was breathtaking! I loved that we had a large bridal suite to get ready in, which is part of the wedding package. All of our wedding photos are so beautiful in the setting, the ceremony to reception are wedding blog worthy. I am SO happy we chose this location for our big day. Working with Tamar on our big weekend was a pleasure as well, he was so helpful and felt like part of our wedding family! Portofino is not cheap, but they were willing to negotiate with us and I appreciated that. The food on the night of our wedding was perfect, it was so good, and is worth the higher price tag. The service was great on our wedding... Read more

  • Pros: Drop dead gorgeous venue, the backdrop of your reception is the ocean. The food is fantastic and high quality. The pricing overall is very reasonable all things considered. Cons: 1) We had serious communication, responsiveness, professionalism, and accounting issues with the team at the Portofino from the beginning through the end of the planning process. Every draft of our contract had oversights and major accounting errors that made finalizing our contract kind of a nightmare. (A combination of overcharging us and neglecting to include our requested changes into the new drafts of the contract .) It also became very clear early on that their team doesn't necessarily communicate with each other. Changes and requests made months ago would often not make it into the next drafts of contracts if you spoke to one person on their team vs another. If you do choose the Portofino, I highly recommend going through every detail of your contract with a fine toothed comb. The... Read more

  • We hosted our reception at the Pacific Ballroom. The venues were recently refreshed, with new chandeliers and flooring (I believe between November 2018 and February 2019). The location right by the water offers fantastic views, especially with sunsets. The food was excellent, and the wait staff did a fantastic job. Our Banquet Captain was very professional and continually checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. The events team were overall responsive to our questions during the year leading up to the event (though we did have to send a lot of follow up emails asking for response), allowing us to visit the venue multiple times to envision decor, take measurements, etc. We did have some problems negotiating the banquet order - either missed communications or typos meant we had to go back and forth multiple times before the correct prices were listed - this could have cost us a lot had we not been reading carefully! Additionally, we were told that the wedding concierg... Read more

  • We recently held our wedding reception at Portofino Hotel. Not only was the location beautiful with a beautiful day time and night time view of Redondo Beach Pier and the Palos Verdes Peninsula from the ballroom, but the food was so tasty! All our guests were raving about the hors d'oeuvres (lamb pops, cheese lumpias), dinner (steak, seabass) and the view from the ballroom. We mostly dealt with Shelley and Rain from catering and both very responsive especially when there were several changes we wanted to make to our banquet order last minute. During our menu tasting Shelley was very helpful in giving us guidance and advice on the flow of our events and also how we could set up our cocktail hour to allow guests the most comfortable experience. We also really appreciated Rain's help in setting up additional orders to our event beyond the scope of just food/ballroom setup. This venue is beautiful and the pricing was a great deal for the location/space/services.

  • We were so happy that we were able to book the Portofino Hotel and Marina for our wedding in February. From our first site visit, we were charmed by the gorgeous views of the ocean, beach, and rocks (while avoiding the troublesome sand) as well as the elegant ballroom with windows that let the sunset and lights of Palos Verdes create a magical environment for a wedding. Kim Coulehan, the catering sales manager, was very helpful throughout the process of planning the wedding and it definitely helped to reduce our stress that everything except the florist, officiant, and DJ were included in the package - even the cake! The service was great (we received multiple compliments about the bartenders’ cocktails), the food was delicious, and our guests were extremely impressed. Kim was a life-saver when we were worried that our seaside lawn outdoor ceremony would have heavy rain and helped to arrange at the last second for a beautiful tent to be set up on the lawn the night before! She was ab... Read more

  • I really like Kim at the resort, she is very kind and helpful, providing us a lot of flexibility and help for our big wedding day. All the stuff there are friendly and professional. It's a decent drive from Wayfarers Chapel (Reception place). Compared with several venues of surroundings, this one stand out to be the best deal!

  • We had our wedding at The Portofino Hotel & Marina (ceremony and reception) in late July. We had a few challenges with the room blocks early on and the lobby bar wasn't always staffed during our wedding weekend, but overall we had a great experience. The team was helpful, the food was great, and the venue was beautiful. Compared to similar venues in the area, the costs were reasonable. We would recommend The Portofino and have fond memories of our wedding day!
