Porto Santa Maria Hotel felt like a family run hotel rather than part of a chain (Porto Bay Hotels & Resorts) at the heart of the old town of Funchal. It is ideally located for getting around Funchal with the bus terminus for local transport, tour buses, taxis and the cable car all within walking distance from the hotel entrance.... More

Still on holiday as I write this review, not off to a good start when pre booked sea view room turns out to an angled sea view and not one of the many full on sea views available, some of the cheaper garden view rooms have a similar view of sea. Must admit room is quiet and staff friendly, problemwith... More

We had 10 days at the hotel in July and thoroughly enjoyed it. We chose a suite which was very comfortable with lounge, kitchenette and large bedroom/bathroom, well worth the extra. Having stayed at various hotels in Funchal on 6 occasions, we would say that overall this was the best. The hotel is situated in the old town and there... More

Rooms were clean and they had very comfy beds. The staff were polite and made us feel very welcome and their service and friendliness was outstanding. The food... More

We have just returned from a two week break at the PSM, for us it was a perfect location with great sea views and in the midst of many reasonable and good quality restaurants. Our room was beautifully furnished with a very comfortable and huge bed, maid service was excellent with toiletries regularly replaced and linen changed every other day,... More
