We will be there in 2 weeks![/QUWe are a family of 5 and every time we have requested something,sofa in room,connecting rooms they always tell us yes and last time I even called day before we came and also was told we have a sofa in our room only to get there and NO SORRY your room dont have sofa but we will charge you 25 a night for a roll-away.So dont get your hopes up that you will have a sofa like we did.They also didnt charge us for the roll away since it had pee all over itWe will be at Porofino March 4-9 still love staying onsite but have learned not to bother requesting.

Does anyone have any pictures of the club lounge?

I have been all over this thread and google and the only picture I see is a tiny image on the Universal site. Way to small to give any idea of the layout.

Am I correct in surmising that not all club lounge rooms have a balcony and I can't request one in advance?

Portofino Paid in Full for August

I have paid off our August trip. I am so excited to have paid in full. Loews cashed my check and posted the Advance Deposit to our reservation. There's even a credit I guess that will cover Parking fees, etc.

As far as room requests, are all the Portofino Suites in a particular building? I know we have a garden view, but do I have to make any specific requests? This is our first onsite stay. TIA

Does anyone know where I could find a schedule for this years Harbor Nights celebrations at Portofino. I know the next one is April 15th, 2011, but was wondering when the next one will take place.

TIA

Just back!

We had a fantastic stay at PBH. Can't say enough about how nice everyone was and how beautiful the room and resort in general both were. We did get the pullout sofa, which was comfortable for even my 6'3" son, and a lovely bay view. No balcony, but you certainly can't have everything!

Thanks to all on this board for the invaluable information. It all helped to make our vacation a great one!

try page 30 on this thread for club pics of breakfast. I have done club numerous times. It is wonderful and the pictures don't do it justice.

I'll be staying here for just one night with my family (DH, DD, DS & me). I paid a AAA rate in advance. The prices are STEEP but we wanted to get to the park one hour early and have that front of the line pass since we only have one day at IOA.

I was wondering - should I make any room requests?

Thanks!

PBH is rapidly becoming one of my fav resorts - each stay there has been more relaxing and enjoyable than the last - and they have all been wonderful. The only request I would make would be for the West wing - that puts you nearest to the Beach (main) pool, the boat ramp, and the walkway if you want to walk. For a short stay it will just save you some steps/time getting around. Enjoy!

Is there a map of the grounds posted someplace?
I need to start to get a lay of the land before our trip!

And, I'd like to look at the map while everyone talks of their room placements.

Thanks.

Entertainment rates haven't been available for years.
