Set in tropical gardens with many pools and sea views this hotel is amazing. The staff are warm and welcoming the rooms are spacious and well decorated the food is out of this world, varied and tasty. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed, we couldn't fault this hotel in any way and vowed to come back again soon, and from the amount of return visitors this hotel has many people feel the same. A very big thank you to all the staff and the management team you should be rightly proud of what you have achieved at this hotel.

Would highly recommend this hotel. This is our 3rd time here and will definitely be back. The standard and staff at this hotel is exceptional. Rooms are big and immaculate. Plenty of sun beds around pools and gardens. You feel nice and relaxed after your stay here. Pool side restaurants are really good especially the ice cream parlour.

I returned home yesterday after a week at the Porto Mare,right from the moment I walked into the hotel i felt special. All the staff were lovely from the reception, restaurant,bar staff and the housekeepers. The manager should be so proud of the hotel and all the staff that work there. I shall be returning to the hotel hopefully next year.

Coast and island both stunning. Lava pools to bathe in all along the coast are amazing.
The Porto Mare hotel was just so relaxing. Food was of a very good standard and managed to have something different to chose every night over 2 weeks, which doesn't happen very often! Recommend 4xwheel drive trip with off-roading, brilliant fun.

I stayed at the Porto Mare hotel for a week in the summer with my sister and our elderly mother (oh how she would hate that description)!
The hotel was exceptional with beautifully furnished public rooms and stunning grounds, including several swimming pools, amazing gardens and a nursery with hundreds of orchids.
There were four different restaurants; we tried them all and picked our favourite for my sister’s birthday dinner. The food was really good and there was a good selection of wines. Happy hour alternated between two different bars every evening with live music and an excellent choice of cocktails - not to be missed!
Our rooms were spacious, well equipped, clean and nicely furnished. We chose the most basic rooms without a sea view and were delighted with our secluded outlook over a small garden area.
Madeira itself is a beautiful island with the most amazing wild flowers growing everywhere and some breathtaking views from above the clouds.
Funchal is a pretty, bustling town with good shops and restaurants..
Whilst the whole island is quite hilly with some steep slopes to climb, taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced, and the drivers are friendly and welcoming - count how many times you are told by one of them that Christiano Ronaldo was born on the island!
We will definitely go back!!!
