Since our wedding anniversary sometimes falls during our week of residence the hotel also gives us,a bottle of cava/champagne. The hotel has, each year, improved or upgraded it's facilities - sometimes the rooms, sometimes the... More

Just home from a wonderful stay in a lovely one bedroomed garden apartment in the Residence. The apartment was probably the nicest we've ever stayed in and was surrounded by fabulous gardens. Our aircraft failed to land in Madeira due to wind and we were re-routed back to Lisbon (where we had just spent a few days on a city... More

We have been using Portobay for the past 10 years and the residence for the last 4 of those years. This group is excellent in all its hotels in Madeira and that ie why we return. Good location and with excellent facilities!

We have stayed at the Residence 5 times now and it just keeps getting better. The grounds are stunning and peaceful as usual, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. What made this time even better than before was the most enjoyable evening entertainment and the area around the Lido area has now got some... More

We have owned several weeks in the Residence for many years. It never fails to impress, standards are always high ,apartments and grounds very well maintained. Staff work very hard and are always pleasant and pleased to see us again. To us it feels like a second home.

Bought into this time share on our first visit to Madeira 5 years ago. We stayed at the Cliffe Bay hotel. The Residence is part of the Porto Bay Resorts and is situated alongside the Porto Mare and Eden Mar hotels. The grounds are spotlessly clean and attended to everyday along with the pool area. Apartments are very spacious and... More
