A total chill out location, with the perfect view. The staff are excellent (nothing appears to be too much trouble) and it's within easy walking distance of the centre of Funchal, as the main cable car to Monte. It's also right in the heart of the old town - the restaurant zone is within 20 yards of the hotel gate.... More

This was our first time in Madeira and we picked a hotel close to the old town rather than the lido. The hotel is first class, extremely well run and in tip top condition. Room are spacious and our room (313 a junior suite) had a fantastic view of the harbour. It was lovely to open the curtains in the... More

Stayed for a relaxing week with daughter who expects her first baby in Feb All reviews are accurate re standard of cleanliness and excellent location of this hotel. One point- we would have welcomed some in- house information about the hotel and local facilities. Eg didn't discover the sun terrace until 5 days into our holiday. Some staff were fantastic... More

Can really only repeat what the other positive review have said. We loved our room - at first was disappointed to be on the ground floor next to the pool area, as the sea view seemed less dramatic than it would be higher up, but actually the views were great, fascinating watching the cruise ships, and nice to be able...

We booked this hotel on the recommendation of relatives who had visited earlier in the year and were not disappointed. Transfer from the airport is quick and efficient, as was check-in at the hotel. Our room however was a "garden view" and overlooked the side of the hotel towards the public park and cable car. This was noisy at night,... More

Great hotel situated on sea front with a long flat promenade....good for the less mobile as other parts in Funchal are quite hilly. Rooms kept to high standard..we had studio sea view room on 3rd floor with 2 balconies to enjoy views of the harbour...worth paying extra for. Great food with plenty of choice and tables outside making most of... More

This is the best hotel we have most likely ever stayed in. Having visited Funchal previously and stayed in their sister hotel we said that if we ever went back we would stay in the Porto Santa Maria. If you like a quiet hotel in a central location this is definately the hotel for you. Although we had a lazy... More

Splendid hotel in great location within easy walking distance of city centre and with the old town restaurant quarter on the doorstep. Friendly well trained staff are very attentive without being stuffy. Wonderful breakfast both in terms of quantity and quality. Great value and would definitely retun.
