This is our 9th visit and this very fact should indicate how much we enjoy visiting The Residence! Each year some things are "tweaked" and we noticed a couple of changes again this year. Firstly we were visiting with our four grandchildren aged between 5 months and 9 years. The older three loved the Kid's Club and, in particular, Mr... More

Returned to the residence once again as an owner of a weeks time share. Disappointed to find that the cleanliness upon arrival not up to its usual standard - toothpaste around the bathroom sink, the underside of the toilet seat in a dirty state (to put it politely) and old cup stains on the outside table. I realise that housekeeping... More

Great hotel with lots of sport activities and a great selection of restaurants in and around the hotel. The maids come in everyday and keep your room nice, clean, and tidy. The staff are all very friendly and will try to help you as much possible. The free wifi in the room is very useful!

Apartments as clean and comfortable as in previous years; friendly maids and food excellent. However, despite a ruling about no towels to be left on sun beds for more than 90 minutes unattended, by 8.30 am each morning of our first week there all the sunbeds had been reserved and no towels were removed by ground staff at any time...

This was our 9th visit to the Residence and the quality and standards are as good as ever. When we visit we feel like we are coming home to see old faces. There is tremendous support from the Customer Relations staff. Claire was great in helping us when my wife fell ill and thankfully she was able to recover and... More

The perfect lodgings on a beautiful island.. We first visited Madeira and stayed at the Eden Mar which is part of the Porto bay complex. We have a knack for knowing quality and value from our travels. We fell in love with this hotel complex the first day we arrived. and purchased a 3 week timeshare apartment at the Residence... More

For our first family (2 adults, 2 children aged 11 and 9) trip to Madeira, we'd booked a one-bedroomed apartment at the Residence at a very good rate through Expedia. We arrived 3 July, the children's school term having finished the previous day. Having completed the online pre-registration, check-in was quick and efficient and brought a surprise upgrade to a...

We cannot enthuse enough about our timeshare apartment. So delighted with the tour of this amazing "complex" of timeshare, + 2 outstanding hotels we immediately signed up for 1 week of bliss; quickly changing it to 2 weeks. This was back in 2005 and selfishly we haven't done a review before, as I wanted to keep it all to myself!!... More

Just returned from our 5th year in The Residence and it never disappoints. It was good to see music around the pool bar 3 evenings this year and hopefully the support it had will encourage it in the future. The only disappointment was no BBQ as it is only held every other week, why not weekly !!! Already to book... More
