This was our first visit to Madeira so it was a hard choice on where to stay. We chose this hotel as we have stayed at the Porto Bay Falesia hotel on the Algarve and always been pleased (this is also a Porto Bay hotel, one of three at the Porto Mare resort.) What a good choice it turned out to be. We had an excellent junior suite on the sixth floor with lovely views of the gardens (more about them later) and the sea. The room was comfortable, well equiped with a separate living area and small kitchenette with two hot plates and microwave. We stayed on bed and breakfast so having the kitchenette allowed us to do a little self catering and eat on our balcony on a few occasions. Only one problem, there was no extractor fan and when we cooked a steak apparently we set the fire alarm off in reception, they rang us and asked us to open all the doors and windows. So don't burn anything. Breakfast was excellent and there was a choice of two restaurants, we ate in the Atlantico outside on the terrace overlooking one of the pools. We also had two buffet meals equally as good, watch out for those sweets if you don't want to put on weight, hard to resist. Wonderful swimming pools outdoor and indoor with a heated outdoor pool connecting directly to an indoor one. There is also an outdoor jacuzzi which we spent a lot of time in. Now back to the gardens. Absolutely wonderful, bananas, palms, orchids, herbs, plants of all sorts. Spent time every day having a stroll round them. Plenty of sports activities and evening entertainment. Pleasant and helpful staff. Hotel well paced takes about 30 minutes to stroll into Funchal.
