Nothing extravagant about this lodging. The decor is stuck in the 50's/60's. The owner was a bit pushy at breakfast in demanding that we sit at a specific table. All in all the room was neat and clean but I preferred a double bed and was denied. The breakfast ham/cheese, bread, cereal and fruit. The OJ tasted like a powdered...

Wonderful time with the best sea view !! Not too pricey per night! Very reasonable! I just have 2 regret, the water doesn't get too hot and when the other rooms are using the water it kinda messes with ours "quantity wise"! And to get internet we have either to go to the balcony or to the reception. Not much...

There is nothing wrong with the location or the building of this hotel; everything else is, unfortunately, very bad. The owner does not respect the guests and, by the way, is openly fascist - what is that? You are sure not to receive "a service with a smile": I went there with a group of friends and we were persecuted...

I loved my stay. It is a beautiful and modern hotel/pension in the centre of Porto Santo. The room is not very big, but it was suitable for me and my auntie. The view is outstanding from the balcony of the top rooms. I would definately recommend it.

The room was small with no place to put our two suitcases. The beds were old and creaky, the door to the balcony would not close,...

The best kept secret about Porto Santo is Residential Central. It is a wonderful pension with a gorgeous views of the town, port, harbor and beach. The room we had was very clean and adequately furnished and the low price included a generous breakfast. The only drawbacks were the hard beds (which seem to be a common factor everywhere in...

I was in Residencial Central last year and I'm going back there this September. The residential is located in a central area.Perhaps 5 to 10m from the beach. It has good facilities: Equiped bedrooms with balconies facing the city (Vila Baleeira), a large dining room, well kept gardens and nice architectural elements (wall tiles). The only minor aspects were that...
