This place has excellent service and superb facilities. We had three 4-6 years old children with us and seems that this hotel is good for children also. Indoor pools are excellent and we could swim in the smaller with our kids. Also the large outside pool is amazing. I would recommend this hotel warmly.

Originally booked into the Porto Mare Hotel,but at check in we were advised that we had been upgraded to a studio apartment in the ‘Residence’.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 11 night stay there, in fact we enjoyed it so much, we have bought a Time Share 1 bed apartment in the Residence part of the complex.
Thoroughly recommended.

Room tip: Try stay away from the road side as it can be a little noisy

The hotel is part of a complex of three hotels set in communal tropical gardens and pools, which are stunning,and, like the hotel, immaculate. I can't praise the place highly enough, spacious apartments with high quality fittings and furnishings. Excellent staff, super facilities and a real luxury feel. The location is right on the coast and has dozens of bars, very good restaurants and plenty of shops, including an excellent supermarket right next to the hotel. There is a new shopping mall, 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Will definitely be back.

Just perfect from arrival and to cap it all on our 10th wedding anniversary came back to our apartment to this. We love Porto Bay resorts unlike a lot of hotel chains they really look after returning customers.

This was a brilliant holiday experience in what I believe is the best hotel in the area. The only one with grass around the grounds and away from the public gaze.
A multitude of restaurants within the complex to choose from which are all reasonably priced.
All the staff are polite and very helpful, all spoke good English which made things easier.
Transport links from the front door makes Funchal very accessible and there is also a courtesy bus. Lots to do on the island, but a word of warning ...... it's very hilly!
We will return in the future to explore more.
