"Wow" is a word that falls all too easily from our lips, but we were well and truly 'wowed' by Porto Mare. From our wonderful welcome, that included a beautifully prepared room in honur of our wedding anniversary, to our final swim in the warm indoor/outdoor pool, we felt respected and honoured as guests. All the staff were incredibly friendly,...

A wonderful hotel complex. Superb gardens and pools, plus indoor and outdoor games facilities. Excellent restaurants and bars and good, if simple evening entertainments. Daily happy hours with great value cocktails. Staff are friendly, very accommodating and efficient. We would certainly return to this hotel but would insist on a garden and sea facing room.

We try and get away from the British winter for a few days every year in March and this year decided on Madeira. This was our first visit and it won't be the last. This hotel was a perfect introduction to the island. Our initial allocated room was not ready on our arrival but within a matter of minutes we...

Paid extra for a sea view. Was very disappointed to be looking out over the car park to the hotel next door. Yes, you could see the sea from the balcony, but as nearly all of the rooms have a direct view of the sea I was very disappointed. We should never have been allocated this room. They moved us...

We had booked a room with sea view but were offered a room on the side, with a view of another hotel, and were only able to see the sea when going out on the terrace and looking to the side. We complained and were offered a room with the sea in front but could only change after three days...
