hotel was excellent from the breakfast buffet and the accommodation and facilities dispite the limitations to wifi however I will not stay here again. The reasons why if you come to funchal it is too far away from the major bus stations (even though it provides a courtesy bus service ) Also the reason most people go to madeira is...

We have just returned from our third visit in nine months to this excellent hotel and our previous reviews have highlighted most of the obvious positives but here are a couple of extra pluses. The management style is distinctly MBWA – Management by Walking About. Now we have seen this in other hotels but here it is really effective because...

Porto Mare was an excellent place to stay with school aged kids. The hotel is very beautifully located close to the sea. The gardens of the hotel are just lovely. The staff is very friendly. The family apartment (2 rooms&kitchenette) we had was very big and functional with a wonderful sea view. For kids there is enough to do when...

This was our second holiday to Madeira but our first with our 8 month daughter. We chose Porto Mare after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and also we saw it during our previous visit. On arrival the hotel staff were extremely friendly and told us everything we needed to know about the hotel. There were 4 adults in our party...

Short 4-day break at the Porto Mare. Great to return after four years. Still excellent service and attention to detail. Noticed that generally Madeira has raised the bar on food quality and service judging on the restuarants we visited including the Italian themed Basilico in the hotel. Looking forward to visiting the new Liberdade hotel in Lisbon in May.

Stayed at this hotel last week for 3 nights (should've been 4, but plane had to divert to Porto Santo as too windy to land!). Wish I'd gone for a week now (was led to believe not enough to keep me occupied, wrong!). Check in was easy - though I did miss having a welcome drink. Apparently, unless you have...

Recently back from our 13th visit to this wonderful hotel. We travel quite a bit but keep coming back to the Porto Mare time and time again. For us its the place to unwind and relax.

We have recently returned from a very enjoyable stay at the Porto Mar, one of three interconnecting Resorts sharing some beautifully landscaped gardens and pool areas, an amazing orchid collection, a variety of bars and other facilities. Segregated sun lounger areas give a good sense of personal space. We were very pleased with our SUPERIOR SEA VIEW room and the...
