Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Like many of the reviewers, we are regular visitors to this hotel. Why? Quite simply it ticks every box or us. It has a comfortable all year round lounge, the rooms are large with a lovel view of the sea and the pool area. The pools are varied, the outdoor pools admittedly too cold for anytime but the summer and the spa pool which we use regularly in the colder months The entertainment is predominately mainstream 50s to 80s music - exactly our era -but performed by different artists; either groups or duos. There is, at present, an Elton John and Beegees tribute on alternate weeks - both hugely entertaining. There are definitely no naff ham acts which are all too common in some of the hotels we have visited in the past! There are numerous restaurants to suit every taste nearby. And both the Alfama A la carte restaurant and the buffet in the hotel are excellent if we don't feel like moving out of the hotel in the eve (we go B&B). All the above said , what really stands out at the this hotel is the friendliness and attitude of the staff from the management team to the waiters/bar staff, pool staff and cleaners and nothing is too much trouble for them. An example is that my wife got "marooned"under the sunshade during a sudden downpour, suddenly out of nowhere Joao from the Pool Team appeared with a large umbrella to the strain of "singing in the rain" to escort her back to the hotel! Made her holiday!!! Can't wait for our next visit for Christmas and New Year and to meet many old acquaintance returning guests.

Hotel's Favourite
Spent a fabulous week with my two grown up daughters at the Hotel Porto Mare. Beautiful hotel, exceptionally clean, food plentiful and stunning grounds with plenty of sunbeds and quiet places to chill. We booked a suite, it was very spacious for the 3 of us and had everything we needed. Hotel is very well situated with Funchal town closeby. We booked a tuk tuk tour which was great fun as was the cable car up to Monte although the basket toboggan coming back down were quite hell raising : ) Staff ar the hotel were exceptional. Had one small incident but the mangement dealt with it immediately and were extremely professionally. What more can you ask for. Would come back in a heartbeat!

This was our first visit to the island of Madeira at it certainly did not disappoint. The weather blue skies and sunshine every day. The Porto Mare hotel was I consider one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Our seaview room had a huge balcony which looked out over the gardens swimming pool and the sea beyond. The room itself large with 2 very comfortable double beds and everthing was very clean. We were on half board and the food was excellent, there was a huge choice both at breakfast and dinner. All the staff we came across were very friendly and helpful. Madeira itself is a beautiful island and on this trip only managed to see a small part of the island. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have rebooked to come back again to Porto Mare hotel next spring to see the island in a different season.

Excellent holiday all round and everyone we encountered was very helpful. It is easy to get into to the city with buses stopping right outside. There are many fine restaurants and bars within a 2 to 15 minute walk. The pool is a good temperature and never too busy.

Everything was very good. Breakfast service, although busy, was dealt with efficiently. Rooms needed a carpet update, otherwise clean and comfortable. Toiletries were high quality .third visit to Madeira, first to Porto Mare, suffice to say we will be back.

We spent 10 days here and found the hotel clean and comfortable. There were plenty loungers for all and we did not see the usual rush at the crack of dawn to put towels down. The food was good but didn't vary enough over the 10 days to make us want to eat in the restaurant every night. Luckily there is no lack of good restaurants within easy walking distance. The biggest let down was the lack of bar staff. Drinks sometimes took 30 minutes to arrive if you were in one of the bars, and there was no service around the pool and loungers. We felt that this was down to the lack of staff. Overall the hotel was lovely, with an exceptional pool and plenty loungers. Ideal for families too.
