I have recently moved here (almost 2 months), and I can't think of anything that I don't like about the complex. The pool area is super awesome, the gym is too, although I wish they had more leg-day equipment. The community is beautiful altogether, I love just walking around because it feels like paradise. But my favorite part has to

Love love love living at Portofino! Beautiful surroundings and the staff are great.
I think Portofino is one of the best apartment complexes in San Diego. (I just wish their apartments didn't cost so much.) I love the trees, landscaping, and the overall look of the complex. Reminds me of Italy.The customer service is also excellent. I want to single out Josue and Sean for going beyond the call of duty in their inter
My boyfriend and I recently moved out of Portofino Apartments after living here a year and a half to move into a house. I honestly have to say living here was a pleasant experience and well worth the money. The amenities are beyond impressive and the staff is very attentive and helpful. In that respect I would like to give a special

The place is lovely and the amenities are great, but my Leasing Agent has been extraordinarily frustrating to work with. After 3 weeks of poor or no follow up, I asked to be contacted by a Supervisor and still have yet to hear from them.
Very kind and considerate stuff even when presented with a tough situation. facilities are top notch with a beautiful view. Armani and Jose definitely took care of everything I needed.
First day here, but I know I gonna love this place. The leasing manager Jose is awesome!!!
Hello pals and gals! †I'm going to post the full review I posted on to the Facebook page here as well...but before I do, just wanted to say I've read the other reviews and I'm happy to see they're fairly consistent about being positive. †For every negative comment you read, think that it's when people get angry that they are out to g
I've lived here for almost a year and happy to be leaving. It's not a bad place, kind of noisy but my apartment does face the pool area. The staff is alright and maintenance does a great job of fixing problems quickly. I just don't see the point of spending so much money a month for rent---it's crazy! I could've had the same amenitie
Overall I love living here! The property is clean and beautiful and one of the best parts is that our apartment unit is ALWAYS nice and cool without having to turn on the AC. I'm not sure if this applies to all the apartments but our stays a constant 66-68 degrees even on the hottest days. The pool is beautiful, there are BBQ grills
My husband and I lived in Portofino from about February 2011 until April 2013. We went to a Christmas party at our friends place (at Portofino) and fell in love with the community and the actual unit. So much so, when our lease was up at Aquatera, we moved into the exact same location, only a building over! I loved the unit, we had a
If you are looking to pay a mortgage amount for a small apartment this is your place. I lived here for only a year and as soon as my lease was up I was running out of there. Yes the community areas are nice and the grounds are kept nicely groomed. That's what sold me. The gym is updated and the pool area is great. They are also pet f
I currently live in Portofino, Apartment living is something new for me since the 80's, but I was looking forward to not having to deal with all the upkeep of owning a large home and able to just pick up the phone for any necessary issues. As I read others reviews, I see I am not alone on some of the same situations I am dealing with
My Bio: I am a current resident of San Diego and have been living here for 5 years now. I am a recent graduate of SDSU, as a Business-Real Estate focus, and Portofino is the 5th place I have lived in San Diego. This review is based on my experience living at Portofino for one year, from August 2012-2013. I lived their with my younger
We had a two bedroom that needed a little cleaning when we moved in. †Maintenance was quick to respond to our few requests. We found the staff to be very resident oriented. The things I didn't care for were not things the staff could control, like people not picking up their dog's poop or residents having numerous guests taking up th
Since moving into this complex in January I have been pleasantly surprised. The front office staff is extremely helpful and accommodating, the grounds are meticulously manicured and maintained, the janitorial staff is prompt and efficient, the facilities(pool, bbq areas, gym, office area) are in great condition and always clean. I ha
I visited the complex 2 days in a row, I was torn between 3 properties and kept going back to look at the unit and property and Karla helped me, she was absolutely Amazing.. She was very patient and informative, she went over everything in detail with me over and over, I know I drove her crazy, but I wanted to make the right decision
Beautiful property and very friendly staff. We just moved in and have been very happy. Impressed with the amenities (that lots of tenants use) and happy that more than nice parking is included. Also, in a great part of town, easy to walk to things we need. So far, so good!
Its a great apartment complex. The apartments are clean and staff members are friendly as well, especially a guy named Jose Soto. He is the best! Also, they have a nice pool and gardens. There are food trucks that come by every couple of days which is great for spending a good time with neighbors and enjoying nice food. However, it's
I'm not much of an apartment complex fan, but when looking for a home for my husband I and I to share a space with my newly retired Mom, I thought it would be a good first place. I fell in love at first walk in! We saw the Florentina floor plan which is what we took. Huge bathrooms and a fireplace won me over. The balcony is able to
This is my 3rd year enjoying this fine community, the rooms are great, big and with awesome view. Kitchen and living rooms have the right size to live like home. The staff from the office are great, they always solve my problems right away, and always very friendly They have everything you need,, gym, computer center, pool, barbecue
If you are looking for great customer service go and visit Jose! We came to look at Portofino apartments at the end of January just to get some information. We were so impressed with the premises and with Jose that we were sold that day! He was great at answering all of our questions. He took us around and showed us a similar model o
I've been living here for 3 weeks, and so far so good. Pros: Dog-friendly, clean units, beautiful landscaping (I rarely see dog poop when I walk my dog), many amenities, garage, lots of storage/cabinet space, friendly staff, quick fixes, quiet complex (not a party place)Cons: Despite the complex being low-key and quiet, the kid upsta
My boyfriend and I moved in here 3 months ago and we love it. I would say the pricing is reasonable for what you get. We looked at a bunch of places in Mission Valley and none of them were as nice as Portofino, and were around the same price. The pool/hot tub area is great - we love the grills and cabanas and the fact that even on re

I have friends that live here. I love going over to costco and grilling at there place. My friends are always using the amenities. Portofino has a gym, pool, hot tub, computer room. Check it out.
A great place to live...
I love Portofino they host random food days ex: $5 Papa Johns Pizzas and food trucks swell the best one in San Diego is coming today Curiosity catering food truck. Yuuuummyyy
So far i have bee living here for a month, i havent been able to enjoy the amenities completely but seem neat. I have not seen any irresponsible pet owners for that reason i think its clean and close to one shopping center, the trolley and the stadium. The apartments are spacious although they will charge for everything. the stoves a
This is an amazing place to live. So clean and beautiful! The pool is awesome and workout room so clean. The staff is super friendly and so helpful. Our apartment is huge with tons of closet space. Parking is a little problem for guests but that is my only negative comment. GREAT place to live overall!
I have to agree with the recent posts. †Portofino is a great place. †Nice people, great location, inviting staff, plenty of free activities. †We've been there for over 1 year and we love the place. †The staff has been great, from move-in to day-to-day issues, they are there. †They don't stop caring once they've got your money on move
A bit pricey but worth it! I have a 1 bedroom but it's very spacious with a lot of storage space and cabinets. Pet friendly and the grounds are kept very clean at all times, unless there's a lazy resident that won't pick up after their pet. Nice size gym and pool area.Importantly, the Staff is awesome!!!! They are there 7 days a week

We really enjoyed our stay here at Portofino. Jose Soto hooked us up, fo sho. We had considered going to one of the other surrounding apartments, but after seeing portofino, none of them compared. We were even "fortunate" enough to see how well their disaster plan worked when the apartment 3 floors above us had a serious flood. They
Portofino Apartment Homes stood out because of Jose Soto. His extensive knowledge of the community and very friendly personality helped us choose this complex. My family and I moved from the east coast and Jose helped us every step of the way. He went out of his way to find the answers to our questions.This place deserves five stars
I lived here for 2 years and for the most part it wasn't too bad. †As soon as the housing market went down and they dropped their prices to live there the apartments were infested with college students. †SO if you are looking for college students...move there. †If not, don't do it because the complex is LOUD.
