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

Just returned from our 6th annual stay at The Residence. A little haven of heaven. Staff are friendly and helpful, apartments are very well furnished and roomy, pools are clean and tidy and the grounds are extremely well maintained. Can't wait for next years visit.

Spent our usual week here in June and already looking forward to next year. We have never regretted buying in...except sometimes we think it should have been 2 weeks. This time we visited the Hotel Serra Golf for lunch and were very impressed by what we saw. As always it is not just the standard of the apartment and hotel... More

We have just returned from a tenth visit to The Residence. Once again the standard was very high. The rooms are spotless and well maintained and the gardens are always a picture. Ricardo and the team at the pool bar mix up a mean cocktail as well.

Another great stay everything nearly as good as usual. Had breakfast quite a few days. Staff used to be so good in there but this year we noticed it was much slower to clear tables and there were a few rather rude male staff. The breakfast area runs better when the manager is around and I didn't see him as... More
