Porto Santa Maria lies at the water's edge in the very heart of Funchal's old centre. Its close relationship to the sea, the outstanding and exclusive views over the harbour where the cruise ships dock, its picturesque surroundings and the unique flavours of its cuisine result in genuine urban tranquility. A congenial hotel offering 146 rooms, restaurant, bars, direct access to the promenade, outdoor pool, indoor pool, SPA, gym, parking...all in the heart of the city.

The hotel, location and staff was absolutely "5 stars". If you want to stay in Funchal, this is the perfect place. Fantastic breakfast, the old town just arond the corner (great restaurants) and close to the cable car.

Hotel's Favourite
Is how we felt to once again be welcomed to the Porto Santa Maria Hotel last week. Having enjoyed all our previous stays, this one was extra special during ongoing restrictions due to the COVID pandemic. We felt safe at all times. Everywhere was scrupulously clean with many hand sanitizing points and adherence to current regulations. None of the above marred our pleasures of a sunny balcony, watching liners come and go, comfiest ever beds and centrality to market and plentiful excellent restaurants. We will be back!

We had a very nice and pleasant stay in Funchal at the Porto Santa Maria Hotel. Excellent breakfast and location near the city center and the sea. We fell asleep listening to the waves. Many restaurants around to choose from. We will return :-)

Our 2nd stay at the Porto Santa Maria and it again fully met our expectations, despite the obvious difficulties of Covid regulations. We had a junior suite with a sea view on the top floor and half board. Food was very good and drinks were very reasonably priced (we were given a special 20% discount as return visitors in January).

Most of Funchal is very built up with huge hotels hogging the sea front and a bus ride from the town itself. Port Santa Maria is ideally placed on the east, right beside the sea, though with pedestrians able to walk in front of it. A fortress, church and cobbled streets give the area real character and to steop out for a meal in the busy locality after a cocktail in the hotel bar is a very pleasurable experience. From our balcony we could see the sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening, with great liners coming and going every day. The breakfasts were excellent as was the swimming pool and jacuzzi. We would have preferred not to have music by the outside pool so never lunched there again but maybe others like it. Our 'junior suite' was spacious and very well equipped though it seemed a pity on this sunny isle to have brown and beige as the decor. We have been back two days into a chilly English January and are still haunted by the swaying palm trees outside our balcony and the waves crashing below and the sunny days we enjoyed.
