We have stayed in the Porto Mare several times but we decided we'd try the studio apartment in The Residence so we could cook for ourselves occasionally. We were not disappointed. We had a beautiful large room with seating area with sofa, plus small dining table and chairs plus workable small kitchen which was excellently stocked for crockery, cutlery etc.... More

This was our first time at The Residence although we have stayed at Eden Mar on the same complex twice before. The whole experience of staying here is excellent, from the pristine condition of all public areas and gardens, to the superb layout and exceptionally clean rooms. In fact our cleaner Zelia Sousa was the best ambassador this hotel could... More

We were very pleased with the one bedroom apartment- 2 bathrooms - full kitchen-table & chairs -lounge area & the biggest bed I have ever seen & fabulous sea view The Porto Mare complex is a collection of very...

Lovely complex overlooking lido in Funchal. Apartments are very spacious and well appointed, ours had access to private garden which was great. Restaurants in complex are astounding but pricey but the food and service is brilliant. All the staff are great and we look forward to coming back next year.

The hotel staff were excellent. Pleasant and very helpful. The room in the Residence was extremely comfortable with very good facilities. I was somewhat dissapointed with the catering and had some better experiences of taste and value at local restaurants and in Funchal. The pools and other facilities were great.

We stayed 15 days at the hotel and it is worth of every euro. Xmas and News Year - the hotel took us by bus to see the fireworks from the mountains. We recommend this hotel truly, everything succeeded just perfectly. Thank you.

We stayed 2 weeks in a 1 bedroom with our 12 year old daughter and an older niece joined us for a week. The room was quiet (1st floor #3020), a good size, double showers but strangely only one toilet. We walked everywhere and found the hotel restaurants good but not great. A couple of the less touristy restaurants nearby... More

I have just returned from The Residence in Madeira, where I have been visiting for the past 5 years. It still is a lovely place to visit but there has been some changes since last year. There seems to be a feeling of prosperity and new places especially restaurants and cafes have opened up. Sitting on my terrace in the... More
