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.

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.

Fantastic hotel in all respects. Right on the front away from the main sweep of large Hotels. Couple of minutes walk to all the restaurants and bars in the old town and cable car. First class food and service in line with the 4 star rating. No children under 16 allowed was definitely a big bonus. Lots of different areas to relax in, so it never felt crowded. Along with many others we will most certainly return.
