Overview Facilities Food, drink & entertainment Location Reviews

With the sea front as its closest neighbour, stunning ocean views come as standard when you stay at the Porto Santa Maria. This Madeira hotel nestles in sub-tropical gardens at the heart of Funchal's Old Town and presents you with a wealth of on-site facilities that are hard to beat elsewhere. On top of this, the hotel is adults only and perfect for relaxing days with just your iPod and book for company.

The pool area is the heartbeat of the hotel during the daytime. Soak up the sunshine and watch the cruise ships in port as you lie back on your poolside sunbed. The indoor heated pool is a great alternative on cooler days. Relaxation for the mind and body is on the menu in the opulent spa, along with a Jacuzzi, sauna and massage room. The nearby gymnasium is kitted out with the latest equipment for your morning workout session. Chill out on the Harbour Terrace with its 360 degree views of Funchal and the Sao Tiago Fort.

The restaurant and bar scene is pretty special too. The main Arsenal restaurant blends local Portuguese fare with lavish buffets, a la carte options and a weekly gourmet dinner. Light bites and meals are served up with stunning views in the Promenade Bar and there's also an impressive line up of live music and shows in the Captain's Bar. Discover why the Porto Santa Maria is a popular place to stay for Madeira holidays.

Super hotel.Very welcoming.Lovely room.

Mr Bubb, 23 February 2017

Lovely hotel, the food quality was good, very pleasant staff, located in an ideal part of the city, just what we wanted.
Just one aspect we were disappointed with, we booked two rooms one with sea view which was just fine, the other room was described as having a "garden view". In fact this room overlooked a public park, which whilst being a pleasant view did have 24 hour activity. We feel that it should be made clear that the view from this side of the hotel is over a public space rather than the gardens of the hotel which we anticipated.

Mr Bennett, 29 December 2016

Superb position. Great Food, and they catered for Gluten-free diet very well.

Mrs Whalley, 25 March 2016

Adapted room ideal for my husband's needs, the staff were helpful and it was an interesting area to walk around- all on the flat so suitable for my husband. His only problem was that there was too much choice at the evening buffet!
