Quality of the hotel and service goes without saying, how good it is, as other people have said. But it's the little extra things that make it special. On walking down the corridor the morning after we arrived for breakfast we were greeted by the chamber maids with a friendly smile and hello. Un beknown to me they had also... More

Our 3rd. visit to the Hotel. Our room overlooked the ocean and bay. Staff are extremely friendly and efficient. Very convenient for all the excellent old town restaurants . Also very close to the cable car to Monte and gardens.

Nice size room well fitted. Everything we wanted.Two issues with maintenance, the shower leaked, reported on the way to breakfast and when we got back already fixed. The dryer rail on the balcony one support snapped, I was still thinking that I should report that and I realised the whole assembly had been replaced. The air con was very efficient... More

10 Days in Suite 313, good location as top floor with full sea view but suffers from some noise from roof-top Jaccussi and a/c plant on roof-top. Very Central, sea front, easy walk into town and lots of nearby eateries if needed. Nearby skateboard park is an unwelcome new addition. Nothing is a rip-off. Very good deal to upgrade to... More

Second visit this year and again nothing to complain about. The location of this hotel is perfect being only yards yards from the water and close to all the many restaurants. Can't comment on the quality of the food in the restaurant because, as a group of 6 adults we eat in a different town restaurant each evening. So what... More

We decided on somewhere different again this year and chose Madeira on recommendation from others who described it as wonderful. After reading reviews we chose the Porto Santa Maria Hotel just off the old town. I can only describe it as faultless. There is an excellent choice for eating and deciding what attractions to visit. The hotel staff were most... More

We stayed in this hotel recently and everything was excellent. The staff were all efficient, friendly and helpful. The hotel was ideally located for the sea front promenade, cable car, restaurants. It was attractively designed, inside and out, around the pool area. The rooms were spotlessly clean, well decorated and welcoming. We had a sea view which was worth the... More
