As a frequent user this trip was mared with the "theft" of my silver bangle that I placed under my towel in the spa. It went. I searched everywhere. The spa staff had no interest what so ever and it wasn't until I threatened with the police that the front desk took any interest. I did go to the police... More

First time in Madeira and what a lovely hotel to stay in. The whole complex and rooms were exceptionally well looked after and very clean. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Beautiful well kept gardens. Well situated for all bus routes into the main centres, although the hotel has a shuttle bus to the main centre of Funchal. Can recommend... More

The hotel is well presented and all areas are very clean. The rooms my family and me had all had sea views. My room was on the side of the hotel, overlooking the hotel next door, giving a little noise from their entertainments at night, and from the intervening road. The food and drink from the restaurants and bars was... More

Over the past two years we have been to the Porto Mare once and then the Eden Mare twice (as we wanted the kitchen facilities). Restaurants excellent with good service. Food is also very good with much to choose from. I can recommend the pancakes - ordered from the cabin outside the Alfama restaurant in the Eden Mare side of... More

We have been coming to the Residence, part of the Porto Bay, for a number of years and can only describe it as, 'home from home' we look forward to staying here year on year and are always greeted with warmth and affection from all the staff (family). Everything is always to a very high standard and nothing is ever... More

I stayed at the Porto Mare hotel with my adult daughter & we had a fantastic stay. The hotel is very well appointed & incredibly clean & maintained to a very high standard. Our room was large, bright & airy with a balcony overlooking the garden/patio area. The beds were big & comfortable. The hotel has delightful gardens with an... More

Had an absolutely fantastic honeymoon, room was superb, very clean, full frontal sea view as requested, we were suprised with champagne and a gorgeous flower arrangement of orange Anthurium. The room was very spacious with loads of cupboards and drawers. The pool was great too and the food you couldn't fault even had sparkling wine at breakfast. I cannot fault... More

Nearly everything is perfect: the people, swimming pools, the garden, breakfast, the rooms (with airco) etc. Less perfect: the street next to the appartments in the Residence is kind of busy/ noisy. All in all a very good (apart)hotel, worth more than 1 visit!

We have just returned after spending ten days here, at the Porto Mare Hotel and we can concur that it is a lovely place to spend a relaxing holiday. We had two rooms - a superior twin on the fourth floor for our teenage girls and a junior suite on the fifth floor for ourselves and we were very impressed... More

Good sized room with good views over grounds out to sea. Clean and still modern after 5 years, but showing a bit of wear on fixtures and fittings. Air con worked well. Room safes are disabled which was annoying; strong box available for a fee at reception. The 3 pools i saw were all nice and clean, and there were... More
