I'm curious if someone could post some comments of the Royal Orchid (honeymoon suite) at Portofino. I would like to know about: size, views, layout, bathroom and privacy.
Also, in early december will I have to sleep with air conditioning on, or could I just keep some windows open..How are the windows in the Suite, can they be opened and do they have screens?

Any pictures from personal experience?

We stayed in RO suite at Portofino in Jan. It is large approx. 750-800 sq ft. with a very nice balcony overlooking the Caribbean. The view is great, could not ask for one better. The layout is basic with the bathroom directly behind the wall with the king bed. Bathroom has ample room. (Look at the pictures on their website, the room looks just like the pictures)Most windows have curtins that can be pulled if needed. We loved to wake to the bright red sunrise at the end of bed.(we mean bright !!!) The windows have wood shutters that allow air in and all have screens behind them. We never used the AC, just leave the shutters open and you will sleep like a baby. Privacy?? Don't worry, not many people around plus you are on vacation, who cares
