We are fortunate enough to have a 10 year time share in The Residence. The complex also contains the superb Porto Mare and Eden Mar hotels. The gardens are a tropical paradise, with exotic and labelled plants, to keep any gardener happy. See also the below ground orchid area for a wow factor. The hotel complex has six pools, our... More

Just returned from another wonderful holiday in Funchal, staying in The Residence. On arrival we were upgraded from a one bedroom to a two bedroom apartment. It was huge,not only inside, the covered balcony was 18 x 12 feet. The Porto Mare complex has great facilities, good quality restaurants, a fabulous spa and more than enough pools, sunbeds and entertainment... More

As owners, we normally exchange our weeks for May or September as we find these months quieter and more to our liking. However, both months were booked and we had to go the last week in August and the first week in September. Never, ever again! Our first week the whole complex was full of shouting, screaming kids - but... More

We have just returned from staying 2 weeks at The Residence at Porto Mare, Funchal, on a timeshare basis. We go there for 5 weeks during the year, and have been going there since it was first built. The apartment we stay in is a 1 bedroom which is very spacious and very well equipped, 2 T.V's, fridge, dishwasher, microwave,... More

I stayed in The Residence with my partner in August 2014. All I can say it was brilliant and amazing, our hotel room (suit) was very clean and beautiful with sea-view. We have got a nice bottle of Madeira vine and a fruit bowl when we arrived. The room cleaned ( towels/bedding changed) every day during the stay. The hotel... More

We spent a nice vacation in this resort despite the fact that it started off negatively. We booked a 2 bedroom appartement in the Residence, but when we arrived we were told that there was an overbooking due to timesharing and we were offered 2 rooms in the hotel instead and got some compensations. We would like to thank especially... More

A second visit on a family holiday this time in high season. Good facilities, excellent rooms, friendly and pleasant staff with the exception of breakfast service which was a bit terse perhaps because it was busy. If you wish to stay at the hotel in the evening instead of going to one of the islands great value restaurants then there... More

We recently returned from our stay at the Residence and cannot fault this accommodation at all. The beds were very comfortable, the room was nicely furnished and the kitchen was very well equipped. This is the first time we have stayed in a self catering accommodation within a hotel setting and it worked very well for us. We travelled with... More

We have visited both as guests of apartment owners and booking via the Porto Bay web site, and every visit have been better than the one before, the staff are helpful and friendly and so are the management. Rooms and food also excellent , so we would fully recommend anybody visiting Madeira in the near future.
