The residence always feels like our second home - the staff and facilities are wonderful and welcoming. But then you have the gardens........which are unsurpassed in our experience. we have been coming for 7 years now, and are never disappointed - thank you again for providing such an exceptional holiday experience.

We have just returned from another wonderful stay here. It is a beautiful place to stay. Staff are very helpful, the apartments are very clean and well set out, the gardens and pools are magnificent. The food in the restaurants is very good. The location is good, everything you need nearby. If you want to go further afield, the buses... More

We stayed for the first time in Madeira, and we were very surprised by this beautiful island, but most of all we were very surprised by the beautiful and very organized Residence Porto Mar. Very clean environment, very very friendly and helpful staff. 15 minutes walk from the center, Porto Mar is well located, close to the Residence, there are... More

Using RCI Time Share exchange this is an excellent 4 star resort. The 1 bed apartment was well laid out to a very high standard. Room 3382 is over the side street by reception but with sea views and late afternoon sun, you are aware of late night traffic. Facilities and pools are all well-kept together with the lovely garden,... More

For two people who would never buy timeshare this is the best thing we have ever done. During our first visit in 2008 we liked it so much that we bought another week for later in the year. The apartment is first class and has everything you will ever need. The chambermaids are wonderful, friendly and hardworking, they do a... More

My how time flies, it's 10 years that we have been visiting the Porto Mare The Residence which must indicate our feelings about this super complex. As always we were warmly greeted by all the staff from the Porto Mare Hotel and The Residence from the reception desk, to the room maids making it so easy to relax immediately. The... More

My husband and I love this place so much we bought a time share apartment the first week we stayed in Madeira! Staff are always exceptionally friendly and in particular the maids must be the hardest working maids anywhere I have stayed - always smiling and checking that everything is alright with the apartment. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Never... More

The staff always so friendly,helpful and professional. Hotel amenities are second to none. There used to be a delightful coffee and snack bar called Doce Lima in front of the Residence and this is sadly missed when strolling in the gardens outside. However their are other places nearby and within the hotel there are first class bars and restaurants (including... More

As timeshare owners we will, of course return. We love our apartment although we did have one small gripe and that was a sun lounger issue. I unfortunately sat on one and was asked to move by another owner as it was hers! I moved, no argument. I contacted the owners management team on more than one occasion as there... More

We first visited last October with friends and knew that we would have to come back to this beautiful island. So at the earliest opportunity we rebooked and simply couldn't find anywhere else that offered what the Porto Mare has - location, views, food, fantastic rooms, the most beautiful gardens we have ever seen in an hotel - the list...
