Zumba – now offered at Portofino Island Resort

If you are not familiar with Zumba it is the only Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music and contagious steps to form a “fitness-party” that is downright addictive.

Since its inception in 2001, Zumba Fitness has grown to become the world’s largest – and most successful – dance-fitness program with more than 10 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba classes in over 90,000 locations across more than 110 countries – and now Portofino Island is one of those locations!!!

Join our Zumba Certified Fitness Instructor, Jessica Mulligan, Saturday mornings at 9:15am for Zumba Class.  Classes are subject to change, so please call ahead to reserve your spot and confirm class schedule.

Happy Birthday Sean!!

The Pub & Grub menu at Terrazzo Grill is one of my favorite menus because of this tasty dish. 

This is “Steak Nachos” piled high with everything possible for only $14.00. 

This dish is so large I shared it with 5 other people and still have left overs.  The Pub & Grub menu is offered on the weekends which pairs nicely with the 6 flat screen TV’s in the restaurant to watch your favorite team.  They are serving until 9:00 tonight… come on down!
