Our second visit to this hotel and just as good as last time. Yes, there are a couple of small things that you might expect to be free, the safe in the room and although the hotel has free WiFi its only available in the lobby area, but these are minor issues and I actually quite enjoyed going into the...

Over the years we've stayed in many hotels for our annual holiday, mainly in Spain and the Canary Islands. This year we decided to try Madeira. The Hotel Porto Mare is the best we've experienced so far. The rooms are clean and spacious, with comfortable beds and air conditioning that works well. The pools, Spa and gym are well maintained....

Close to all amenities, short (free) courtesy bus into Funchal, the pleasant and stable staff, the excellent food with varied choice in three restaurants,the award winning gardens with orchids area, good entertainment and many other features too long to list, makes this one of the best, if not the best, hotel we've been in during our 25 years of travel...

As always this hotel matched my expectations on all aspects, except one little moan. Having been staying here for over 10 years and two to three times a year it would have been nice to have seen the manager about. Hopefully next time I'll see him.

This was our second enjoyable visit to the Porto Mare which is a very relaxing hotel with great facilities and lovely gardens. We used the pre check in on the web site which went very smoothly and we were lucky to get our room on arrival at 10.30 am. The staff are a credit to the hotel and the housekeeping... More

All we were told about the Hotel and its situation was spot on. We could not criticise anything about it. The staff , the food, the accommodation, the surroundings were perfect.transfers were on time and very clean and tidy. Would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel to anyone and we hope to be back in the future.

The Porto Mare is an excellent hotel. It consists of three sections, Hotel, Aparthotel and Apartments all sharing the facilities, restaurants, pool, bars, etc. The hotel is well appointed and very well decorated. The room we were allocated was large and well maintained with a good balcony overlooking the pool, gardens and sea and kept very clean throughout our stay.... More

Our first trip to Madeira but it will not be our last. An excellent place if you are looking for a quiet holiday, to relax, and eat some good food. The hotel is lovely and large enough to find a quiet area should you wish. We stayed in room 2314 which overlooked the pool and caught the sun in the... More

Located at Lido, just at the beginning of the promenade (very good if you like to jog), this is a competent hotel with good rooms, nice service, and overall you get what you pay for. Worth a visit. Nice gardens and pools, the hotel matches expectations.
