We (mother, sister and self) stayed at the Porto Mare in April 2014 and had such a lovely time that we decided to make a return visit in May 2015 for what is likely to be my 86 year old mother's final foreign holiday! Our superior room in 2014 had been great with a terrace and balcony - we therefore... More

Having read the reviews we were very much looking forward to our holiday but unfortunately this beautiful hotel did not deliver as it is badly let down by over booking. We had booked and paid for a sea view room in the Porto Mare but on arrival at check-in we were told (with no apology whatsoever) that the hotel was... More

Everything about this hotel was absolutely perfect!. All the staff were genuinely friendly, the rooms were very generous, spotlessly cleaned, and extremely comfortable. Meal times were a pleasure with a huge variety of food to suit every need and always delicious. The hotel itself is very tastefully decorated with a warm relaxing atmosphere, the outside pool, seating areas and gardens... More

We had an excellent stay at the Porto Mare. The hotel is very well run with friendly and helpful staff, spotless rooms and beautiful gardens. It is also in a very good peaceful location overlooking the sea. The shuttle bus is handy for getting to Funchal and it is also on the bus route. There are also many good restaurants... More

This was our 1st visit to the Porto Mare Hotel and it definitely won't be the last. Whilst there we celebrated my wife's 60th birthday. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The restaurant manager Alexandre made the night perfect by arranging a lovely table for us, with complementary sparkling wine and a birthday cake which was presented by all... More

After three lovely holidays at Porto Mare we were just hoping that nothing had lapsed, - absolutely not! The standards of service, the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness everywhere, the quality and choice of food and last but not least the superb gardens were all well up to expectations. This is the only hotel we have returned to regularly... More

The hotel you will not regret to spend money and time. Location (lido district); territory full of greens and flowers; orchard garden; beautiful views, clean pool; staff hospitable and not disturbing; restaurants for any tastes, bars! If only wifi in the rooms could be free! But I still would recommend it!
