Just returned from our first visit to Madeira and the lovely Porto Santa Maria Hotel. We booked on the previous reviews on Tripadvisor and would fully endorse the many very good comments on this site. Brilliant location on the Sea Front, very handy for all the local restaurants and excellent for anyone who has mobility problems. This hotel has 4*s,... More

this hotel is probably one of the best hotels in madiera,apart of course from reids.a tad more expensive than the other equivalent hotels,but well worth the extra.the first thing you notice is the absence of kids running around turning everywhere into a playgound while the parents sit and look on.it is so peacefull and relaxing.the hotel is set in the...

This hotel is one good reason to keep returning to Madeira. We love the island and we love this hotel. The staff are helpful, polite and proud of their hotel and this shows in the service they deliver. I agree with the reviewer who says it's very difficult to write anything different that hasn't already been said before. We discovered... More

Just returned from the porto santa Maria. This was our first trip to Madeira, and although not our favourite destination we could not fault this lovely hotel. From cleanliness, food, staff, views, everything was first class.

It is so difficult to write a review of this hotel, except tp endorse the great majority of previous reviewers' comments that this is an outstanding hotel. Wonderfully situated for walking to all the major attractions in Funchal; especially the old town, which on it's own, is a great experience which should not be missed. Having arrived on an early...

I know this hotel doesn't come as high as others in Funchal but we couldn't fault it for anything and it's got to be the ideal location for sightseeing and eating out. It is situated right next to the sea with just a walkway in front and on the other side is the old town. The old town is by... More

Faultless. Firstly, I love the boutique style & friendly, attentive staff who make you feel part of a family. Secondly, the location is perfect - tranquil although immediately adjacent to the 'old town' where all the finest restaurants, bars & amenities are. It is an ideal base for all sight seeing. My studio bedroom has a lovely sea view &... More

This is a great hotel stayed for one week with my husband. On arrival the luggage arrived in the room before us. We had a side sea view looking on to the park. No noise at night. The hotel was clean, beds were comfy, staff were polite and helpful. Rooms were cleaned every day and you could change the towels... More
