      We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that was well equipped, spacious and with excellent views from the balcony. The beds were large and extremely comfortable and the bathroom was equally large with a separate shower room and bathroom. The kitchen is small but well equipped. The lounge dinner is spacious and is in good decorative order. The furniture is becoming dated and the absence of usb points or sockets by the bed a good example. WiFi is free and very easy to use with no limits to the number of devices you can use. Being part of the PortoMare Hotel complex means you can flex between self catering or being in a very good quality hotel. The gardens are stunning and despite being full there were enough sun beds free at anytime of the day. The large pool is well maintained but describing it as heated is somewhat inaccurate. Fortunately the spa has great facilities and a great heated large pool. There is several restaurants on site and all are pretty good. We opted for breakfast daily as we knew its a a huge choice, great quality and well worth the special deal we were offered. The happy hour every night was well used and the hotel has vast lounges and seating areas to relax in. Evening entertainment was targeted at the large number of older couples staying out of season. Housekeeping, reception and indeed all staff are always friendly, helpful and happy to give advice or recommendations. This is a very good hotel complex which I would definitely recommend for couples or families with good restaurants on site and within walking distance.

    • Timeshare

      Reviewed 19 September 2019

      This was our 6th Year (5th as a timeshare) we absolutely love Madeira and getting out and about on the island. Just a few points for improvement which would make it even better and wouldn't be a big concern if they weren't increasing the already high maintenance fees) is that the room is getting a bit dated now - it is looking tired (Sofa's tatty, Kitchen needs updating) Also the outdoor furniture is in need of an upgrade. Green Plastic wobbly tables and plastic Sunbeds is not a great look for prospective owners. However, the resort is wonderful in many ways and we love coming back year after year. It truly is paradise.

    • Another great holiday

      Great location, great hotel and lovely Island. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The rooms cleaned daily. Fridge needs updating. The pool area is the highlight of the holiday with several to chose from.

    • Dissappointing

      Reviewed 07 September 2019

      As an owner occupier i have been going to The Reisdence for 10 years and can honestly say that this year i was glad it was my last, the buffet you to be a real shostopper with its themed nights but now it is practically the same food every night, decent quality and lots of it but very much the same each night. The pool bar and restaurant has a good varied menu for lunchtime snacks with the food being good quality and fair price, the service is very variable from very quick to abominably slow. This year two of the walkways had been jam packed with loungers which didnt seem to be used that much, its a shame because you lose the option to wander past all the lovely plants and you lose that sense of space, the loungers themselves were filthy at the back and clearly had not been cleaned in a long while. I was in a different room to my normal one as i had changed weeks and the room had not been upgraded, old discoloured hairdryers, new hairdryers were provided but these could not be plugged in anywhere near a mirror, lights not working, fridge not working just unacceptable really, after another incident i changed rooms and the difference was night and day. The quality of your stay should not be down to the luck of which room you get, all rooms should be the same. I would definately return to a porto bay hotel but not the residence.
