    Location 10.0 /10

    By the seaside, on the south coast of Porto Santo, 1 mile away from Vila Baleira and 2 miles away from the airport. It is around 5 min to go downtown and 10 min to go back to the airport.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    Out of the 97 rooms, only 2 have a sea view. The others overlook the gardens or the swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and have kept their 1970s decoration. A few imitation leather armchairs surround a pedestal table with a laminated tabletop and chrome-plated metal legs. This rather outdated style might not to be appreciated by everybody. However, everyone will appreciate the vast balcony equipped with a plastic garden lounge. The satellite TV broadcasts 17 channels. Air conditioning and direct international telephone are provided. However, there is no minibar. The bathroom, relatively big, has bathtub and hairdryer.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    A low 1-floor building, the Porto Santo hotel extends its rigorously geometric design along the sea. You will expect to find a relatively sober lobby; it is the opposite instead. A big light well has been arranged above the staircase leading to the first floor (note that the hotel does not have a lift). As for the decoration, 70s style imitation leather sofas are next to traditional furniture and ustensils (dresser, copperware). But the "traditional furniture" trend will be confirmed in the course of the acquisition of the Porto Santo hotel which belongs to the same group as the Quinta da Bela Vista in Funchal. Outdoor, the 120 m² swimming pool is surrounded by a lawn planted with palm trees. Deckchairs and sunshades are installed in sufficient quantity. A small fitness room, a hammam, a mini-golf and a tennis court complete the facilities.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The Porto Santo hotel has a main restaurant and a snack-bar on the beach. The latter is particularly nice if you would like to treat yourself with grilled food at lunch time. Opened on the beautiful bay of the island, a nice teack terrace allows not to eat with your feet in the sand, instead, while enjoying a real holiday panorama: blue sea and golden dunes. Fresh fishes, sausages and different kinds of meat are prepared in front of you and served with chips or crudités. Simple but excellent! Open for the three meals, the main restaurant is more conventional, both for its setting and for the menu. Breakfast is served buffet style, while the other two meals are offered a la carte. Concerning prices, consider 11 euros per dish.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The hotel extends in front of 4 miles of beach of the Porto Santo bay. 50 m wide, it is made of fine and golden sand. The Porto Santo beach is the pride of Madeira and deserves it! Emerald and sapphire-blue, the sea creates a very beautiful view : to be contemplated from a deckchair or from the shadow of a sunshade. The beach will be a perfect playground for children and no worries for swimming : no rocks or seaweed will disturb you. However, the water sports addicts will be disappointed, as the hotel does not have special equipment.

    To know

    First hotel to open on the small island of Porto Santo, the Porto Santo hotel has the advantages and disadvantages of being a pioneer. Built at the end of the 70s, it reserved itself a prime position along the beautiful beach boarding the south coast. In thirty years, the palm trees decorating the gardens have had the time to grow to offer a nice shadow. The downside is that the external architecture and the interior which have not been renovated yet reflect the style of the period : functional design using formica and chrome steel. We wait with haste the reshaping of the rooms ... Located 1 mile from Vila Baleira, the main town in Porto Santo, the hotel is next to a regular bus line. As the service is not very frequent, it is better to rent a car or a motorcycle, to tour the island without problems.
