Let's start with the positive: Big hotel room, with a nice balcony. The reception staff and the lady on the pool bar were very helpful and friendly. Negative: Many of the facilities that the hotel "advertise" are not open. Gym, Jacuzzi, sauna, sports bar - everything closed. The restaurant/pizzeria by the beach is terrible. The food takes incredibly long time and is completely tasteless. Maybe the worst restaurant experience I ever had. After 35 minutes waiting for one spaghetti Bolognese and one tagliatelle with Turkey, and no explanation, we looked for the waiter and she said that it would take 3 more minutes, because they were making a fresh Bolognese. When it finally arrived, it was very disapoiting to see and taste what was on the plate. That was surely not a fresh Bolognese, and a tagliatelle with some dry Turkey and onions, should never take 40 minutes to be served.
Small, nice hotel on the beach. Absolutely friendly and helpful staff. Parking at the hotel.Great and varied breakfast, mini-bar, good restaurant, nice beach bar. Clean and beautiful beach. The rooms are a good size and have balcony or terrace, and it is very quiet.
We had a package that combined return 1st class travel on the Porto Santo ferry with, 3 nights bed and breakfast at the Torre Praia Hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet was very good. Whils ee were there, the hotel was the venue for a wedding reception. The tables were beautifully presented and other floral decorations were set out in such a way that enhanced the whole setting. At no time did we as, hotel guests feel we were in the way. So well done to the hotel. The only thing that let the hotel down was the painfully slow check in. We arrived late at night along with many other guests who had also been on the ferry. The hotel would have known how many guests were arriving from the ferry but there was only one receptionist available. Must try harder in this respect.
Were staying at porto santo. This is a very good hotel. Personell is friendly and professional. Hotel is clean, rooms are nice. Hotel is directly located at the beach and 10 min walk from city centre. Centre has restaurants, supermarket, museum and rentalshops. Good hotel for beach holiday.
This hotel has the perfect location. It is still within the village and also the first on the beach. If you want location, this is it. The restaurants and the bar are right on the beach, the room are very comfortable, the food is great and the service even better. O lot of people might not have heard of Porto Santo. It is 40 miles from Madeira, it is very small and the big difference is that is has a big, wide, amazing beach as good as you will find in the Caribbean. If you decided to try a visit for a few days, this is the hotel to stay. Enjoy.
This hotel has all you need for a holiday : clean rooms, balcony, restaurants, etc ... but where it really shines is it's location : it's literary right at the beach! The breakfast area is one step away from the sandy beach with an amazing view, and it has a beach bar/restaurant. It's also just a few minutes walk away from the town centre, where you'll find a grocery store. The internet is a bit slow, but so is life on Porto Santo, I didn't mind at all ;-)
We stayed one night as part of a package with Porto Santo Ferry line. Over one day from Funchal ( ferry leaves on the dot at 0800 and returns daily on the dot at 1800. Some forgot that, we observed !!) The hotel is spotless and the staff a delight. There is a beachside bar where we had drinks and also the breakfast which was excellent. As a hotel ? Functional. Somewhat dated though immaculate - kinda 1980s/Abba !! Bedroom immaculate. Reminded us a bit like a Premier Inn. Nothing wrong with that. Use them often in UK. Would stay again for a short stay for the position and great staff.
Returned for a second visit, mainly because of the excellent location right on the beach. I rang the day before our arrival to ask for a room overlooking the east side of the hotel, spoke to a very pleasant receptionist who said they would try to help us with our request. On arrival we were given a poolside room on the ground floor which was much better than the room we had last year, having been refurbished recently. The facilities of the hotel are great, the breakfast buffet is great, catering for most nationalities, the pool and beachside bar made for a very pleasant stay.
When you arrive at this hotel it certainly has the WOW factor - beach location- golden sand, friendly reception staff, beautiful reception area, good restaurants and a great pool area. However the rooms let it down as they are very basic and our bathroom needed updating. Our room had a view of the car park. I believe we should have paid less for this room versus those with a view and would recommend the hotel should introduce a grading system for the rooms linked to price. Overall the staff were excellent in particular the gentleman who looks after the pool - it is meticulously clean and organised. One of the ladies at reception helped me with a hire car purchase which I really appreciated. I would love to return but would request a much better room.
Our stay was nothing short of merit. The only disappointing thing was the gym is only available certain hours of the day and the rest of the facilities you must pay for. The pool area is where we spent most of our time and the service is good. There is a full time life guard for the kids and drinks and cocktails are served all day.
