Having never been to Madeira before unsure of what was in store for our 12 night break! From the minute we arrived we were totally impressed with the great hotel facilities including the lovely gardens, views of the sea and staff. We thoroughly enjoyed the excellent Happy Hour each evening, entertainment included - beware of the Poncha cocktail! Breakfast every... More

We read so many positive comments about the island of Madeira that we were really looking forward to this - our first visit. We chose the Porto Mare based on tripadvisor comments and were not disappointed. The hotel was contained in a fabulous tropical garden. The Porto Mare was one of three hotels sharing the complex - the other two... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in a junior suite. The room was very large, clean, luxurious and had a big balcony with a nice sea side view. When we arrived the whole room was decorated with rose petals and we received a bottle of free champagne. We also were (positively) surprised with a decorated table and champagne when we... More

Loved this hotel. Very clean even though it is a huge complex. Never appeared busy and could always get a sunbed near to the pool. Entertainment was a bit hit and miss but it was okay apart from 'Mr Brown' who was very irritating.... There was a 'live' band on the Saturday night and these were excellent.... Over all a... More

Stayed in this particular hotel for the first time from 3rd to 10th July 2014 and the stay was wonderful. Accommodation and staff were first rate. The hotel could not be faulted in any way. The restaurants, are all very good with great food and great service. The grounds are absolutely superb and better than many gardens with all plants... More

From the first moment we arrived to the moment we left, the service and attention to detail was impeccable - they really couldn't have been more helpful or more professional. Eg. Our room in The Residence wasn't ready on arrival due to previous guest being unwell so we were offered a different room and half-board to compensate in Vila Porto... More

I have positively reviewed this Hotel before and returned again this June. My last review was superlative rich and to be fair I didn't believe this hotel complex could get better: but it has.

We again stayed at the Porto Mare Hotel for 2 weeks and the service was excellent, food could not find fault and the grounds were as ever beautiful. Will not hesitate to stop there again so relaxing and clean and the rooms are very well equipped.

This is a lovely hotel with many excellent facilities. The drawbacks were:- there's no map of the complex, so even after several days we were finding new corners, and getting lost in between floors and areas; reception staff not very helpful or knowledgeable - they gave us wrong advice about buses, and were unable to help us book, or get...
