We booked with Thomson holidays for our second stay here. (June 2013 was our first). We arrived 8 Dec, departed 15 Dec. Accommodation was bed and breakfast. We had e-mail from the hotel whilst still in UK inviting online check-in, which was easy. Upon arrival around 1300, formal check in was very fast. Our room was really nice, large, clean,... More

Beautiful, very clean and well-operated hotel! Extremely friendly and helpful staff, everywhere in the hotel. Breakfast was fabulous, plenty of choices, no waiting. The "Meatlover's evening" at the Med restaurant was really good, we will highly recommend. The spa with two heated swimming pools was the no 1 attraction when we selected the hotel (via Aurinkomatkat). Too bad the bigger... More

The complex consists of two hotels and apartments and guests have full use of two indoor and two outdoor pools and four restaurants. The accommodation, public areas and facilities are all high quality and very well maintained and the restaurants are all of high quality. The staff are very friendly, helpful and attentive.

We frequently stay in this hotel (or its sister hotel the Eden Mar). It is always, clean, comfortable and with excellent food. We are greeted like friends by the staff who remember us each time we stay. We just book bed and breakfast as we love to use the local restaurants and also the hotel's 2 a la carte restaurants....

My wife and I have stayed with the Porto Bay chain in the Algarve and Madeira and we just can't fault the quality of their hotels. Last year we stayed in three of the Madeiran selection, The Santa Maria, The Residence and The Porto Mare and needless to say we have 2 visits already planned for 2015 so far. From... More

This was our 6th visit and it is testament to this hotel that standards are as good as ever. Even though the weather was dreadful all week we had a lovely restful stay. The hotel offers so much even in poor weather. The indoor pool is beautiful and never too busy (even in the rain!). I had an aromatherapy massage... More

We had a very large room, spotlessly clean, enormous beds, overlooking the side road but a good view of the sea. We had the evening sun on our balcony, and no disturbance from noise. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful, no question being unanswered. I'm not a big fan of buffet meals, but there was nothing to complain... More
