Went for a relaxing 7 day break with my wife and that was what we got. Room was excellent as were the many facilities (the Porto Mare is part of a complex of 3 hotels from the same group that share facilities). There is a regular free bus from and back to the hotel to both the Port and Cable... More

This is definitely one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever been to. I went with my partner for 7 nights stay in a garden view room. The rooms are fantastic, all air-conditioned, huge beds, tv, condiments and brilliant bath/shower. The view of the garden also had half a sea view and it was beautiful. It has a variety... More

Amazing value deal. Had been here before as a sampler of their "happy hour" and amazing, out of this world buffets. Happy hour worth a visit in itself and great bar men who love what they do. Enjoyed our drinks sitting within the tropical gardens. Buffets contain every conceivable buffet arrangement and choice for anyone and everyone! So decided, on... More

Pros: Excellent service, with polite and discrete employees; frequent bus link the hotel to downtown; Great activities proposed but not imposed (swimming pool, gym, trips, sailing, etc); Breakfast of excellence (5 stars for the price of 4 stars) Location: central but out from the noise, with beautiful views to the sea. Cons: Bar service closes at night;

We stayed here for a week and had a lovely relaxing time. The gardens are beautifully kept and there is plenty of space, lots of sunbeds and four swimming pools. The seaviews are amazing with a great choice of bars and restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are very clean, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have... More

There are not enough nor the right words, to describe our 3rd stay with Porto Bay hotels past December. Amazing is not enough…. We went back for almost a month stay to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary, Christmas and New Years eve in Porto Mare, Funchal. Welcomed back by the kind and caring attitude of all personal and staff around.... More

Stayed the Porto Mare Funchal last week. Fantastic hotel. Beautiful gardens. First class food. Spotlessly clean. Polite and professional staff in all areas of the hotel. Loved the Champers for our anniversary and room upgrade. Biggest bed have ever seen. Pool and spa excellent. If you get the chance book it, there is nothing to dislike in our opinion. Good... More

We saw the New Year in this year in great style, the Porto Mare Hotel in Funchal is fantastic, great food, wonderful staff and probably one of the hotels on the island. We're going back in June for a two-week stay and we can't wait.

We love the Porto Mare but this year we have seen a few untipical errors. The reception gave the wrong location for the launderette.They also told our friends that only meat was available on Wednesdays at the Med restaurant(it isn't).We went to catch the return courtesy bus in Funchal at 12.20pm and saw the bus pulling away for what was...

Stayed again for two weeks over Christmas and New Year. Always a joy to be welcomed back by staff who delight in their work. There are so many returning guests, that it always amazes us that we are recognised! Fabulous gala dinners in the Atlantida Restaurant on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. The whole catering team are to be... More
