Normally we book our hotel well in advance of our stay and making our requests but for this holiday, we had to leave booking quite late, to see how my husband recovered from a recent operation. We were delighted that he made a good recovery, enabling us to go ahead with the booking. Staying at a hotel with such a... More

We arrived at the hotel around 1ish and were advised it would be at least another hour before our room was ready. We were given a complimentary lunch in hotel restaurant which was lovely. Unfortunately after the hour was up we sat in the reception area and eventually we had to ask if our room was ready. We were then... More

We booked b&b but did eat in the hotel on 3 barbecue nights and 2 carvery nights. Most nights we ate either at the Fort or at A Muralha just outside the hotel. All the... More

Stayed at the Porto Santa Maria Hotel in June 2014, our first impression was of a very elegant hotel. Our cases were wisked off for us, we reported to reception and were asked to take a seat and we would be informed when our room was ready. At midday, we were still sitting in reception, along with others who had... More

It is easy to find several positive comments about the hotel: it is located close to the old town with its numerous restaurants, Monte cable-car has its starting point quite close, the market-hall with its exotic fishes and fruits is not far away, downtown area with its shops is also well within walking distance... The hotel itself is modern, clean,... More
