We spent two weeks at Porto Mare Residence last month.We went on a time share exchange.What a pleasure to book in after a very much delayed flight from Lisbon.The appartment was first class thr beds comfortable ,the lounge and dining room attractively furnished ,the kutchen small but exceptionally well equipped and the bathrooms perfect.We felt that every need had been catered for and the standard equalled any of the top hotels that we have stayed in both in South Africa and Europe.The reception areas were welcoming with friendly staff and beautifull flower arrangements.The pool areas and gardens lovely even so late in the year. There is a courtesy bus which runs into Funchal at regular intervals during the day.I hesitate to recommend restaurants ,there are many within easy walking distance:but standards change and people's taste differs.Besides it is always fun to explore and find one's own favourite.There is plenty to do in and around Funchal .We took the cable car up to Monte Palace and gardens which were well worth a visit and also spent time in the botanical gardens which we loved.There are numerous tour operators offering tours of the island and levada walks.The market was lovely so vibrant and colourfull with a magnificent array of wares.Madeira is a lovely destination for a holiday and we would certainly recommend the Porto Mare Residence.
