Reviewed yesterday NEW

Once through the doors from the busy streets you enter into a veritable oasis of calm. Porto Mare is one of three hotels (The Residence and Porto Eden are the others) that essentially share the same facilities - several pools of varying size and depth - and temperature, lovely gardens and lawns with a sunken orchid garden, excellent spa, views...

Beautiful clean and well run hotel set in lush gardens and with a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean. The staff, especially the cleaning staff, were delightful and the food was first class. About a mile outside of the stunning Funchal, the hotel run a courtesy bus if one is not able to walk. Already thinking of going back next...

The Hotel Porto Mare is in a great position overlooking the sea and next to the newly completed Lido. 20-25 min walk down into Funchal, near bus stops, lovely cliff top walks going towards Camara de Lobos. Best to have one bedroom apartment overlooking the sea or garden to the front of the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and...

Beautifil seaview from room, two terraces with sunbeds, very big room with small kitchenette, clean, big bathroom and very convenient. Activities like golf, tennis, etc. are possible but you need to pay for it.Shuttle bus to the city center is perfect and on time.

Bearing in mind this was a 4star hotel and we travelled with Thompson who give it TTTT+ we felt there were some disappointing features. Wi fi was only free in public areas and to get it in your room you had to pay. Fortunately (or unfortunately if you read on) we were directly above one of their bars so did...

We have been visiting the Porto Mare for some years. It is spotlessly clean, very friendly, good food, three different pools. It is a great place to stay while visiting the island or just to sit, watch and relax. We come home already looking forward to the next visit. Thank you!

This hotel commands a stunning vista of the ocean, with highly professional and friendly staff and management in the same page. The grounds are immaculate and include glorious orchids, etc. All facilities are in perfect order and the entire resort spotless. It's no wonder the rating is so consistently high. Breakfast includes the standards as well as an omelette bar....
