The Beautiful Island of Madiera
Overall very nice hotel. The pool, gardens and grounds were awesome. The only small complaint I have is the air conditioning unit was directly below our balcony. It could be bit loud when running which was most of the time.

Lovely hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Despite being fully booked the hotel was quiet, the pool area uncrowded with plenty of different places to sit and relax.

Exceptional in every way
The Residence is part of Vila Porto Mare which has magnificent gardens as well as five restaurants and five pools. It is like staying in the garden of Eden and deserves far more than four stars

Fabulous, relaxing week with our little girl!
We stayed at the Residence for a week with our 14 month old daughter in a one-bedroom apartment. The staff were all very friendly and willing to help and the hotel was amazing. The apartment was big, with a large bathroom split into two (one with a bath and sink, the other with a toilet, bidet, sink and shower. The living/dining room was also a fair size & kitchen was stocked with everything you would need for basic cooking. The bedroom was plenty big enough for the three of us, with two double beds pushed together forming one HUGE bed, plenty of drawer and hanging space and a large mirror/dressing area. The balcony was great, lovely view over the resort and sea (I'd recommend asking for a full sea view room when you book - higher levels are nice too). One of the best things for us was the black out curtains, especially with a toddler for naps! It was lovely and dark at any time of the day with them pulled. The AC worked great and was easy to control, the housekeeping staff were very pleasant and did a great job. They even washed up the few bits that we'd left by the sink, including our daughters bibs, cups etc. If you are travelling with little ones or a baby, there is an indoor play area with toys/ride-ons which was great. The pools were all lovey and clean, & indoor ones warm enough for baby. Breakfast was good, got a bit samey but plenty of choice. Free shuttle into Funchal is useful & lots of restaurants nearby. Large free car parking area if you rent a car too.
