Our 2nd visit to this fantastic hotel..just as good as we remembered. A lovely hotel perfectly situated overlooking the sea & port...perfect for watching cruise liners come & go. Fabulous bars & restaurants just around the corner. We will return.

Excellent hotel in a very good location. Rooms cleaned daily. We had a studio which was a little on the small side, fine but I would recommend a junior suite. Best views on the third floor.

Exceptional location, next to the oldest street of the town, area with many typical restaurents, 500 meters from the cable going to the main attractions of Funchal, between the sea and the mountain, but mostly quiet, comfortable and search for perfection. We were there last year and for this reason, and hope to returned.

We stayed at the Porto Santa Maria for 1 week from 11th July and really wished we could have stayed longer. We stayed in room 120 which is more like a suite. We like Adult Only hotels, and the Porto was brilliant as we could stay bed and breakfast. We had a fully equipped kitchenette which was very clean on... More

Excellent hotel, a very high 4+ star from our experience. All the staff are friendly & helpful. The breakfast was superb with lots of choice. We had one evening meal at the hotel, the barbecue night and the food was first class.

For me, this is the best hotel in which to stay. There may be better, more even more luxurious and expensive hotels in the outskirts of Funchal and along the coast, but Porto Santa Maria has the best location. The hotel is very clean, well laid out, the staff and the service are excellent. The swimming pools and jacuzzies are... More

My Wife and I stayed at this hotel in August. We arrived on the 11th and whilst enduring a cab ride with a Lewis Hamilton wannabe learned about the fires on the island which, it transpired were rather close to where we staying! We could see the fire and much smoke up the hill from the hotel. As we approached... More
