4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

January break took us to Madeira, and theCalheta beach hotel. Booked purely on availability and price, and All Inclusive......therefore nothing to add, just fly, enjoy and return home refreshed. So what did we find.....time from air port was longer than expected but not arduous, amazing road with at least 15 tunnels through various mountains and gorges. About 35/40 km in... More

Reception staff were very happy to provide information (bus time tables, local tour operator details, help with wifi codes etc). As noted in previous reviews, the hotel offers a return bus to...

If you want to get away from the English winter blues for a quiet relaxing break then this is the place to be. Calheta is small and out of the way for shopping and nightlife but what a great place to chill out in temps approx 75 degrees in January! The Hotel is situated facing the small beach and sea...

The Hotel Calheta Beach provided the perfect base for our walking week on Madeira. Our apartment across the road from the hotel main building was superb; it was comfortable spacious and well equipped including a kettle, microwave and fridge. There was a good safe in the room for 13€ for the week. A second room key was provided on request.... More

Calheta Beach is a little out of the way but well worth the effort to travel the extra mile. Food and facilities are very good and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely consider a return visit.

The hotel itself is very nice, with clean, airy rooms and a nice welcoming feel but it is in a very remote location. On one side is a beach and on the other a marina. You can walk from one end to the other in about 30 minutes. There are no other walks nearby unless you have a particular desire... More

Just visited and will definitely be going back! Excellent hotel, great rooms and considering that it is all inclusive the food was terrific. The guests are generally British and German and most are slightly older. It is not really for you if you want to go clubbing. For a Winter break I would highly recommend it. Probably not for me...

My partner and I along with two friends have just returned from 7 days at this hotel - the location of the hotel is ideal for sea and beach lovers (although the beach is small & man made) - Calheta is a small very quiet resort with half a dozen or so restaurants of which some are better than the...

Visited here in January 2016 with my partner. Just for a relaxing holiday and some winter sun. The hotel did not disappoint. It is a modern hotel 5/6 stories right on an artificial sandy beach.. The area at the front has a swimming pool and plenty of sun beds. The pool was not heated so was really too cold for... More

A pleasant surprise. Hotel restaurants, especially hotel beach restaurants can be mediocre. This was not the case. Both the quality of the food and drinks and the efficient friendly service was superb. The serving sizes of the cocktails was slightly above the serving size we have encountered elsewhere on Madeira. The location is right at the beach front and access... More
