Porto Santa Maria, an excellent hotel in the old center of Funchal, close to the most interesting things. Very pleasant, spacious and clean rooms with nice view (we had a studio with sea view on the ground floor, saw the cruise ships manoeuvring in front of us...). Very professional staff, friendly and helpful. Like João, for example, the pool attendant: hardly met someone who is so enthusiastic about his job! We enjoyed the large and tasty breakfast buffet, the indoor swimming pool and the jacuzzi, the happy hour in the Captain's Bar (though the cocktails could have been a little stronger: question of taste...), the garage for our rented car... But we never tried the restaurant of the hotel. The reason? It's location! As soon as you leave the hotel, there's a choice of bars and restaurants to discover. Like 'O Regional', at some 100 meters, delicious! And next to this restaurant, the bar 'Sabor a Fado', run by a family of fadistas and fadistos, with live fado-music all the time and many guests performing during weekend nights: highly recommended!
