We absolutely loved this place - we were blown away by its stunning location and peacefulness. Sipping a beer in their beautiful garden is absolute heaven. Staff are very friendly, pool and sauna lovely and have amazing views. If I had one very small suggestion it would be to put some nuts, crisps or snacks to buy behind the 'trust... More

Warm and friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Spotlessly clean and delicious breakfast. Lovely views from all aspects. Swimming pool was an added bonus. Ideally situated for touring the north coast but only 40 minutes from Funchal. Would recommend this small and we'll run hotel.

It is located in Sao Vicente which is about 50min from Funchal by car on the other side of the Encumeada Pass (use tunnel to cross it fast). Therefore, all important places on the island... More

That is the question I am giving myself. Should I share how lovely this hotel is to the world and lost the benefit of a few people around? Or help the owners to benefit from the result of their good work? Well, they deserve it. If I had a chance to run my on hotel it would look like this... More

The hotel is very centrally located on the island and let us explore all corners of Madeira. The room was spacious, the bed large and very comfortable. Breakfast was a generous self-service buffet so we could stuff the calories in for the day ahead. The honesty bar was a nice touch, the swimming pool ideal to loosen up in after... More

My husband and I stayed here for several nights during our trip to Madeira. It is in a beautiful and remote location up a very very steep hill. The staff and manager were extremely welcoming and friendly. We arrived early and they gave us free lunch while our room was being set up. The room was comfortable and there a... More

We stayed in a room overlooking the valley. The room was clean and tidy. It was a little bit chilly, but then... More
