Ninth stay in this comfortable, welcoming and friendly resort with amazing gardens. There is little I can say. Everything is always just as you would expect from such a professional organisation as Porto Bay Resorts
Staff friendly; Chocolate week brilliant; accomodation & location perfect! We will be back!
The Med restaurant (a la carte) is great - lovely food, great service, well managed by Paulo and his team. What a great experience!
We visited here on a RCI exchange. We stayed in a pool level one bedroom apartment.
Everything about the apartment was very nice. There is only a kitchenette but it was more than sufficient for our needs. This is a part of a larger complex....More

We were owners of an apartment in The Residence but have used all our years, so had to come back on a hotel basis. Lovely as ever, although the Studio we had was just above ' Basilico' and the roller garage door made a dreadful...More

The complex itself is lovely and quiet. They have entertainment from bands most nights in the hotel bar areas, but the bars are quite well away from the Residence rooms, and the bands play at a very acceptable volume level. You can sometimes hear music from the bars on the sea front, and the next door hotel, from our room, but it normally doesn't worry us at all. It's often quite pleasant background music.
We have been 'owners' of a time share in the Residence for about 8 years, and our week is mid October. What we have noticed is that the strip of park/grass between the hotel and the sea seems to be being used more for 'events' by the Madeira residents - I think this only at weekends from memory. When we were there last October there was a charity event on one day, and during the day there was a sort of dance aerobics class going on most of the time. The music was pretty loud, and certainly not to our taste, but it ceased late afternoon, and normality was restored.
I would say that the positives definitely outweigh this negatives at the Residence. The accommodation and facilities are superb. I would recommend you don't cancel, but be prepared to head off into town, or take a walk, if you find an event, or too much noise, at the weekend.
