The reception staff are friendly and helpful, the food is wonderful, cleaning standards are second to none and Lena does her best to make you feel... More

The hotel is modern spotlessly clean, the staff are excellent and friendly. At breakfast there is a huge choice of fruit and cooked items all... More

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
