THE QUALITY WAS GREAT ALL ROUND.(WHILST THE POOL AREA IS SMALLISH, THERE'S SO MUCH TO DO IN THE AREA THAT YOU DONT NOTICE IT.) ABSOLUTELY NO USE FOR YOUNG FAMILIES OR ANYONE WANTING A BEACH STYLE HOLIDAY BUT BRILLIANT USE OF SPACE AVAILABLE.BEST LOCATION IN FUNCHAL.
We were there at the end of March 2007 and had a fabulous stay all the facilities are fantastic and the staff are so pleasant and helpful. The hotel food is beautiful but it is so close to fabulous restaurants that it is a real taste of the island to eat out and walk back to the hotel for a nightcap and enjoy the entertainment provided. To be honest i was tempted to keep this to myself it was so good. only one - the outdoor pool is not heated and so is seldom used but hey who really needs it ??????
The Porto Santa Maria has the best of both worlds in Funchal. It has all the luxury you would expect of four star accomodation with the advantage of a good number of very reasonable restaurants right outside its front door.The restaurant'O Jango' was particularly good. Booking your table in advance is advisable though. The hotel is perfectly situated just a few minutes walk from all the attractions of the city.The service was excellent and all the staff very friendly and helpful. Plan to return to Madeira at some point and would make a point of booking this hotel again.
On our previous visit to Madeira we stayed in the Lido, and I remember walking around Funchal, seeing this hotel right on the promenade in the center of Funchal, and thinking: this is the place to stay next time.
This is a modern, reasonable four star hotel with one outstanding feature: it's location right on the sea front in the center of Funchal, next to the Cable Car station to Monte. We planned a walking holiday and so being only a few minutes from the bus stops was very appealing (rather than the 30 minutes in the Lido). Other people will enjoy being just a few steps from the Old Town district. Despite it's location, we had no problem with noise when trying to sleep.
The hotel itself is good. Built recently, the rooms are to a high standard. Two single beds next to each other, 21 inch TV, room safe, bath / shower, and balcony. The breakfast was good but not outstanding - a large buffet with various fruits, breads, juices, cold cuts, hot breakfast, cereals, and a coffee machine. We didn't have lunch or dinner, though they were available. There was a curvy outdoor pool, and a larger heated indoor pool, both 1.1m / 4ft deep, and a Jacuzzi. There were a few kids around but not many; most of the clientele were older couples.
We stayed over Christmas 2005, and booked direct via the hotel's web site, paying 120 euros a night for a garden view room. The room we were given was a sea view however, with access to a large sun bathing area. We booked a few months in advance, though there was intermittent availability up to the last minute.
Overall, a good hotel with an outstanding location.
