Hotel Porto Santa Maria  

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.

Great weeks stay

Booked through Thomson as we wanted to stay in this area, its classed as a Thomson A La Carte hotel which is adults only but I don't think there's that much for families to do in Madeira. A La Carte included a private taxi transfer which was nicer than getting on a coach & going around lots of different hotels dropping people off. On checking in we were told our room wouldn't be ready until 2.30pm & we arrived at 12.15pm & were given a voucher for lunch & a soft drink, our room was ready at 2.30pm & was a nice size with balcony sea view & a small kitchenette with fridge & cooking rings.lovely hotel very clean, nice bar area which had happy hour every night with half price cocktails, we were on bed & breakfast &, there was lots of choice & everything was fresh, nice staff rooms cleaned daily & towels changed. Would definitely stay again if we returned to Madeira ( I think we were the youngest guests & we are in our mid 40's, most guest are either retired or middle aged which suited us fine as it was quiet & relaxed)More

For the price -they can be more generous...

It is a very well situated hotel near the old city and a lot of restaurants surround . It is a 4 stars hotel with good programation at nights ( fado singer, jazz ,etc.. ) The breakfast is good and they have a subterranean parking. The hotel was mainly populated by mid-age or older people. We did not found young couples there. My unic disapointment of the hotel was the extra money for services that should be free like using the safe in your room or internet service in the roomMore

Great holiday

If you are reading this to decide which hotel to stay in then look no further because this hotel is first rate, we stayed on half board the food is lovely, plenty of choice and well cooked . close to shops , restaurants,bus stop, cable car, town.marina. views out standing. 99% of the staff are excellent . rooms cleaned every day if you want. Only one criticism happy hour in the bar don't expect to have a few drinks before dinner you will be lucky to get served one , the young man taking orders does his best but way to busy. Lena in the restaurant is amazing, we will be going back next year.More

Kathy H,

Another great holiday

We have stayed at Porto Santa Maria many times now and would always go back. I can only echo all the positive comments which recent visitors have posted. However, no one seems to have mentioned Lena the customer relations manager who is so welcoming, helpful and puts people at their ease. The hotel has a loyalty scheme for returning guests. After a number of visits guests are eligible for silver or gold Prestige Club cards. A gold card gives a 15% discount on a range of items, including drinks and some food. For example, we were on dinner, bed & breakfast tariff and got the discount on lunches. Well worth having.More

Great hotel!

Lovely hotel! Very helpful staff, excellent breakfast, superb sea front setting, adults only. We had room 215 lovely private sunny balcony. Our third visit wouldn't stay anywhere else. Guest relation Lina is lovely! Only one niggle -awful plastic backed mattress protectors! Took them off after first night! told chamber maid not to put them back! Happy hour and superb Gourmet meal in the restaurant recommended, pity they don't put this on every evening! We will be back.More
