Been in Madeira two weeks now ,going to stay at the porto santa maria hotel in Funchal
Got a reduced price, however just had a follow up email talking about the major works
Building defence from the sea near the hotel. Not a problem but has anyone been there
I visited Porto Santa Maria a month ago and walked around the pool. Didn't like what I heard, but I think the works I saw have stopped and they moved on.
If you would want to stay in the hotel all day, I dont think it will be quiet, but all reviews I read, also Dutch and German, say it is not intrusive. I guess these are people who didn't stay at the hotel during day.
