    Definitely recommended.

    Quality waterfront hotel near the old town. We have stayed here before and we will definitely stay here again. Had a junior suite which was worth the extra cost. COVID secure throughout the hotel. Perfect hotel for a relaxing holiday. Highly recommended.

    Great holiday at the most perfect destination

    We had a very comfortable and lovely stay at this beautiful sea-front hotel. The bar with sea view is perfect to wind down after the long days and the amazing heated pool is great to days-in at the hotel. The highlight is of course the friendly staff and amazing service even at such difficult times such as Covid. The location is perfect to explore the old town and the Poncha bars ;)

    wonderful hotel

    We just spent a wonderful week at this hotel, after making a last minute decision to visit Madeira. The hotel staff are so helpful. The room was amazing with great ocean views. It was very Covid safe. Breakfast was served instead of being a buffet, masks were worn and guests were reminded nicely if they forgot to wear one. There are sanitisers in common areas and we were supplied with our own bottle and masks in our room. The hotel is in a perfect location in the old town within easy reach of restaurants and the cable car. Would definitely recommend staying there. We had a great week.

    This was our first visit to Hotel Porto Santa Maria. Excellent position- very good position for the Old Town area & many excellent restaurants. Plenty of sun loungers. Staff were really helpful. Our room was in a lovely position with a terrace with access to the hotel garden & views of the sea beyond. We look forward to our next visit.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We chose this hotel for its excellent situation and the fact that it is adult only. All rooms have a sea view and even though ours was described as partial sea view we were happy with the size and aspect of the balcony. The hotel is very well maintained and has an array of external seating areas poolside, garden or sea view terrace. The indoor pool is a good size. Both indoor and outdoor pools have a jacuzzi. Evening entertainment is varied. Breakfasts were of satisfactory quality and bar meals excellent. Staff were discrete and professional. We are likely to return.

    This is an excellent hotel which is located in the premier position for central Funchal. No hills to negotiate and within easy reach of numerous restaurants. The staff throughout the hotel are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble in making your stay to be memorable.
