What a lovely place to stay. No frills but sooo amazingly clean. Our room had a sea view and how beautiful to sit on the balcony and watch the sun rise. Reception staff really helpful. You can set off for fantastic walks from here taking your hotel picnic with you. When you get back pop over the road for a... More

The view from the balcony of our room was hard to beat, overlooking the Atlantic ahead, mountains and the distant coast to the right and the local blue lido embedded in its craggy volcanic pedestal to the left. The setting of the Costa Linda is magnificent and the sound of the waves breaking on the shore is soothing but not... More

The welcome and the help given to us in planning our stay was outstanding. The reception staff were multi-lingual (good French and English and maybe more), and went to great lengths to give good advice and to support to us. However, bright street lights on the promenade with flimsy curtains meant that the quality of sleep was very poor. Room... More

We stayed for two nights at the Costa Linda and were well suited. It's exactly what it purports to be - clean, in a good location, and with friendly staff. The bedrooms (we had one with a balcony overlooking the sea) are small but they have all you might need, and downstairs there's a restaurant and bar serving breakfast and... More

We stayed for two nights at the Costa Linda and were delighted. It's nothing posh, but it's clean, in a very good location, and above all has excellent staff. They are friendly and attentive, and all seemed to speak good English. The bedrooms (we had one with a balcony overlooking the sea) are small but they have all you need.... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in February 2014. It was cold outside, but the hotel and its rooms were comfortably warm: important! The rooms are spacious enough and the beds are good. Friendly staff, speaking good English. Helpful: they warned us that a Levada we would like to walk was closed and they proposed a walk in... More

The restaurant attached to the hotel is called Praca da Engenho and was the scene of our delightful lunch which we enjoyed while sitting outside listening to the waves roll onto the rocky shore. Vanda and her assistant were friendly, spoke excellent English and provided excellent service. Four of our group had scabbard fish which was thick, fresh and perfectly... More

We haven't stayed in the hotel, but we have eaten in 2011 and again 2013 in the open air restaurant, that is within about 30 feet of the sea, with great views. I had sardines, my wife beef, in 2011, and lamb, plus chips, olives & Bolo do Caco, the unleavened bread,. with garlic and butter in 2013, plus Maracuja... More

Lovely hotel that overlooked the beach at Porto Da Cruz, and near the public, sea-water swimming pools on the seafront. Some of the area around the hotel was not much to look at but having a balcony room meant that the views of the bay and cliffs beyond were superb and you ignored the "not so nice" bits. Parking could... More
