Very relaxing break . Comfortable hotel in pleasant area.
Only downside...requested quiet upper floor room, but unfortuately room overlooked public park so often noisy, especially at nights and also first few days workmen working next door too in hotel.
Overallovely hotel facilities, friendly staff, good location.
Will return !

Stunning hotel in a wonderfull location in Funchal.services and staff were as you would expect in a high class hotel and could not be faultered. Restaurants provided excellent quality foods with service which could not be faultered. Decor of hotel interior was immaculate and the gardens and pool areas maintained well.
This was our third visit to this exceptional hotel and it did not disappoint.
All staff are lovely especially Fabio who leads from the front with extraordinary
energy. Fantastic quirky design. Wonderful Spa with free sauna and jacuzzi.
Can recommend " all over body massage ". Staff at Reception are very helpful
for organising restaurant reservations etc. It is almost impossible to fault this
very special hotel right in the heart of Old Funchal.
Hotel in great location,25 mins walk from centre of Funchal. There are plenty restaurants and a great find the Boutiq lido padaria pastel coffee house on hotels doorstep. Fantastic coffee and cakes. Room was spacious with great sea view and sunny balcony. Great sports facilities. Breakfast was nice, especially omelettes made to order. Buffet in evening not too good, we only went once, but the dine around option was good, Mamma Mia was lovely but not so sure about other restaurants. Wifi was a bit unpredictable, we seemed to have trouble with it especially in later evening.
This was our third visit to the wonderful portobay complex in madeira.
The idea of a "complex" confused me prior to our first visit 4 years ago. But dont be confused. If god has made a more beatiful place for a holiday, then he hasnt told anyone.
Spent two weeks in this quiet hotel set in beautiful gardens. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The weekly receptions in the library were a nice touch too as it meant you met other gets and then spoke with them during the ensuing week.
Funchal, capital of the Madeira Islands, curves along a harbor and rises up verdant mountain slopes. At the Mercado dos Lavradores market, vendors display basketry, produce, fresh fish, and profusions of flowers. The Madeira Wine Lodge, housed in a 17th-century monastery building, offers tastings and tours. A ride in a wicker toboggan down steep, narrow streets is a uniquely Funchal experience.
