This place is ace. Beautiful. All of the staff couldn't do enough to help us. The rooms were clean and stylish and had lots of fresh towels. The breakfast with homemade cake, fresh fruit, delicious cheese and a variety of bread was delicious. The honestly bar with excellent coffee, and home made jam was great fun and meant we could...

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

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 for two nights at Solar da Bica. Luciana, who was on duty when we arrived, was very lovely and friendly, and made us feel very welcome. In fact, all of the staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed in a room overlooking the valley. The room was clean and tidy. It was a little bit chilly, but then... More

We spent 3 days in Solar Da Bica and can recommend it to everybody coming to Madeira searching for a quiet place to relax (and having a rental car). Our room was clean and had a nice view over the mountains of Sao Vicente. Breakfast was very good and BBQ evening with traditional espetadas (only Fridays) was fantastic. People are... More

The pool is open, it's warm 27 degrees even in winter heated from the solar panels. After a long trek this is a great place to relax. The staff are helpful, you get a tour of the house and one of the garden when you arrive and the sheep are just grazing the grass. The rooms are nice and I... More

Up a steep mountain road with a magnificent view of surrounding peaks, this B&B type converted house, beautifully restored with modern amenities, was our favorite 2 night stay. The gracious owner/host was accommodating, helpful and laid a sumptuous continental, buffet breakfast even though we were the only guests those mornings. The room was comfortable, the grounds interesting to explore with... More
