We stayed here in middle of April and were made very welcome. We were upgraded from superior studio to Junior suite without asking. This was a management decision and the room was very pleasant with all you could wish for, we were self catering and kitchenette area was really well equipped. Only exception would be a toaster would be good for breakfast times but this is being perhaps over critical! We had a good view of sea from second floor as I think all the rooms do. We could use all facilities in complex of Porto Bay (Porto Mare Hotel and The Residence) so found pools very good with choice of large, or medium or kiddies outdoor and two beautiful pools indoor. The Spa was also a very relaxing area where I had a back massage at a cost of 40 euros. The hotel provides you with bath robes, toiletries etc. and towels for use around pools.
The area was near to several restaurants and shops although some we up quite steep hills.
We had no difficulty with this as we were probably one of the younger couples staying here at this time being in our fifties!
We walked into the centre of Funchal and the harbour area. About 30 - 40 mins but the harbour area was very noisy with cranes, cement mixers etc - very industrial area.
We also took public bus to Camero De Lobos a very quaint fishing village about 4 0r 5 Killometres along the coast to the west. Reception were very helpful and told us about area and where to catch bus etc. Walked back from here to hotel mostly on coastal path, but had to come up some steps to road at one point to get around headland cliffs and then back onto promenade which goes all the way back to Eden Mar and supermarket below these buildings.
This took about 1 hr 45 mins. brisk walking.
