After spending a week in Funchal, we moved to Sao Vicente for three days, so that our trips would be shorter. The hotel is not easy to find by searching for the address - both car's GPS and our own did not find it. However, searching for a POI (point of interest) did the trick. There are also a few... More

We spent a week here while visiting relatives in a near by town. The sleeping accommodations were great. The staff was friendly and welcoming. We saw many people traveling with children.
