On a recent cruise to Madiera we did a city bus tour. We stopped off and decided to pop into the Port Marie Hotel for some lunch. We have stayed in this Hotel 3 times over a number of years and we are glad to report it is still a superb place to sit back and relax. The gardens and... More

Looking for some February half-term sunshine, we opted for Madeira for the first time. Having not been before and knowing the weather could be iffy, we nervously checked the forecast in the week preceeding our trip which showed mostly cool, cloudy, windy conditions for our stay. Luckily, after arriving in rain at the airport we soon arrived to glorious sunshine... More

Booked a last minute deal with Thomson's and so glad we chose Madeira for some winter sun. Original booking was for a junior suite in Eden Mar and when we arrived we were transferred to Porto Mare, which is in the same complex. Three hotels (including The Residence) share the huge pool and beautiful gardens overlooking the sea and all... More

First time in Madeira, the hotel was fantastic, staff were helpful and the gardens were out of this world, and there were plenty of sunbeds all around the grounds so we were not in any regimented rows. Dined in the Old Town and at Shelter just around the corner,which was excellent.

Became a little bored with the buffet dinners and ate in The Cliff Bay il basilico and the Med on one night each where the food and service were excellent. Service at the Atlantida was disappointing on occasions which considering there... More
