We stayed here for 7 nights as a transfer week from our Residence Porto Mare apartment. The hotel is a delight and full of charm due to its intimate nature. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and personally shown to our room. Everything was explained to us about meal timings and local walks etc. They couldn't have been more... More

As a change from Funchal, we booked a 4 day stay at the Serra Golf hotel in Santo da Serra. This is a small (21 room) hotel in a rural location but offering the usual Porto Bay comfort and facilities (pool, spa) plus an excellent restaurant. We stayed half board and found plenty of choice for our 4 day stay.... More

I loved this hotel, it was very luxurious and intimate because of the small size. We had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the food was excellent. The pool was lovely too. And it fantastic value for money! Wish we'd stayed more than one night.

I had a very pleasant stay even if it was only for one night and I did not have the opportunity to check out the pool or Spa facilities. Porto Bay has professional staff that is forthcoming and trying to accommodate your requests and answer questions. The only thing it is not is cosy like a little BnB. In terms... More

We loved this place. It an old colonial style house way up in the mountains where it's cooler in the summer and a bit cold in the winter. Without a hire car forget this place , but with a car it's the stepping off point to a world of breathtaking walks and unbelievable scenery. The only place that competes for... More

We arrived after a 15km hike as part of an organised walking tour. Our luggage awaited us in the lobby having been delivered by the tour organiser. My first surprise was that the hotel has no lift.
