This chic, adults-only hotel enjoys one of Funchal’s most coveted locations, just footsteps from the old town waterfront.
Hotel Porto Santa Maria is one of the few hotels right on the promenade of Funchal’s old town, so you’ve got lots of traditional restaurants on one side and Atlantic Ocean views on the other.
The hotel’s a 10-minute walk to the centre of Funchal, plus you’ve got the cable car close by. A lake-like pool overlooks the ocean, and there are a couple of restaurants serving international and Madeiran dishes.
These traditionally styled twin rooms are bright and fully air-conditioned. There's a kitchenette with a fridge and two electric rings, a lounge area and bathrobes are also provided. There's outside space too - patio doors lead out to a furnished balcony with a sea view. It's also possible to access Wi-Fi* from your room.

Very good breakfast and dinner buffet in hotel restaurant, hotel appeared very well kept all rooms and public areas clean with new fittings and fixtures.
All staff were friendly and helpful.
Very enjoyable stay
A perfect hotel for couples,no children. Wonderful views of Funchal harbour,it is situated by the old town,adjacent to the cable car and many good restaurants. The hotel staff are excellent. Lovely garden and sunbed areas. You can watch the cruise ships arriving and departing from most of the hotel rooms. Whether you have b and b or half board,the choice of food is very good. This was my third stay here,chosen originally as it is easily accessible to the main areas of Funchal,no hills to negotiate.More

Honeymoon and birthday in one.
Fantastic hotel in a great central location for Funchal's old town, shops and restaurants. The vIew from the room was a little restricted but didn't detract from the overall enjoyment of the holiday. I had e-mailed the hotel the day before we arrived and requested something fizzy and flowers for my wife in the room for our arrival and wasn't disappointed with the hotels choice. The day after was my wife's birthday and having seen the cards in our room the cleaning lady arranged for a birthday cake to be delivered to the room later that day. Fantastic customer service.More
Just returned having spent a week at this hotel with our elderly parents and son - what a kind caring hotel, staff are so good here. We stayed half board, food excellent, one night being the gourmet evening absolutely first class. We had 3 rooms all of which had sea views very clean and well equipped, kettles etc., standards very high and very new. Location could not be better. My husband and I visited Madeira last year but stayed near Reids, but this hotel is ideal for Funchal on an evening and area is better for people with walking difficulties. More
