Seventh year at the Residence - our 8th in total....the week just flew by and we didn't really want to come home. Cannot fault anything (again) this time......from great Customer Service checking in to the same checking out, the Staff were all so helpful and efficient......you only have to ask and its done. If you have never visited the Porto... More

Our first visit to Madeira - we were booked into the Eden Mar with Thomson but upgraded to here - really pleased!! The Porto Mare experience is impressive on every level. The tropical gardens are beautifully kept; the choice of restaurants and bars are excellent and the staff are professional and friendly - ranging from the waiting and bar staff... More

We have just returned from Madeira where we have a time share at the Residence part of the Porto Bay Hotel group. From being picked up at the airport by the Porto Bay minibus to returning one week later the friendliness of the people, the atmosphere and the whole holiday cant be beaten. The apartments are kept spotlessly clean and... More

We have been going to the Residence foe some 7 years now, I believe the accommodation is about 10 years old. Some of the facilities, like the kitchen units and white goods, tiles need replacing, looking tired and old fashioned. One of the baths in our apartment has always had a black mark I where the enamel has been chipped... More

We had some reservations about booking this "hotel" but it met our criteria of having rooms with a kitchenette with sea views and a tennis court . Before I booked I had phoned the Porto bay complex to enquire which accommodation would best suit us. The gentleman was abrupt & not that helpful. I should have realised then that it... More

Ninth stay in this comfortable, welcoming and friendly resort with amazing gardens. There is little I can say. Everything is always just as you would expect from such a professional organisation as Porto Bay Resorts

Staff friendly; Chocolate week brilliant; accomodation & location perfect! We will be back! The Med restaurant (a la carte) is great - lovely food, great service, well managed by Paulo and his team. What a great experience!

We visited here on a RCI exchange. We stayed in a pool level one bedroom apartment. Everything about the apartment was very nice. There is only a kitchenette but it was more than sufficient for our needs. This is a part of a larger complex. Sunbeds were always accessible. The resort has an ice exclusive feel about it. The walk... More

We have really enjoyed our annual stay of three weeks here at the Residence. From the warm welcome of the Residence team, the comfortable apartment and reliable service as always, the lovely gardens & pools, all adds up with the warm weather to a stay we so enjoy, when the weather is always so awful back in the UK....shame the...

We were owners of an apartment in The Residence but have used all our years, so had to come back on a hotel basis. Lovely as ever, although the Studio we had was just above ' Basilico' and the roller garage door made a dreadful noise going up and down day and night + plus the opening of the internal... More
