Excellent facilities and everything of a high standard, including the food in the various restaurants. Spotlessly clean throughout and friendly and efficient service. The extensive well maintained gardens are a unique, interesting and pleasant feature.

This is getting boring, leaving great reviews, definitely not visiting The Residence, as always, the most fantastic place we have visited. We met up staff and fellow holidaymakers that have turned into friends over the years. The Residence as always I believe should be 5*,

Excellent holiday destination with high quality services, very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful and fully equipped luxury apartments, dazzling exotic gardens surrounding inviting exotic pools and numerous locations to enjoy wonderful cocktails whilst enjoying the Madeira sun. If we ever come back to beautiful Madeira then this aparthotel will be our first choice!

It is absolutely amazing, perfect, the best of the best :) If you only wanted to stay on the complex during your stay, it wouldn't be a problem as everything you could possible need is there for...

We went to Funchal at Easter and stayed at the Residence Porto Mare. We had a one bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms, a small kitchen, and access to a garden with sea views. Unfortunately the kids couldn't sleep on the sofa bed as it was very uncomfortable - would definitely recommend to upgrade to a 2 bedroom option. The hotel... More
