We booked a cheaper mountain view room and was pleasantly surprised to be given a king size sea/harbour view room at no extra cost. Free beach towels. Kitchenette. Recycling bins were impressive too. The food in the hotel is very good with a selection of fish,meat,vegetarian and gluten free. A clean modern hotel with several welcoming lounge areas. Staff were... More

We spent the week of 8th June at this very good hotel on the all inclusive basis. Overall this is a great hotel offering excellent food and our apartment was huge. We were located across "the bridge" at the rear of the hotel which was quiet and fine for us as we only slept there and spent most of the... More

I returned on 2nd March after spending a week at this hotel. Had I stayed longer I think I would have slashed my wrists due to boredom. There is nothing to do during the day if you haven't hired a car or pay the hotel for their bus to Funchal. This costs 19 Euros return. Considering the distance this hotel... More

Just got from a week at Hotel Calheta and wanted to thank all the staff for a fabulous week. The hotel is well located for site seeing and levarda walking. The food is good and the hotel spotless. Seems to have it's own micro climate, sunny when north and south of the resort might be cloudy.

This is a nice and clean resort at the edge of the marina, an excellent location. But their attention to some essentials is non-existent. WIFI does not work in the rooms and is very complicated to use even in the lobbies. No money can buy you this facility, whereas we could use free wifi in average restaurants 100 metres away....

Just returned from one week's stay from 8 - 15 August 2014. Stunning views surrounding what I personally feel is a lovely hotel. Our room was spotless and tastefully decorated with a sea view (that we did pay for). Climate was tropical which I found more commfortable than Turkey or Spain at this time of year. Nice pool and sandy... More

Review of stay between 11-25 July 2014 - already listed on Calheta Beach Hotel but as this hotel seems to appear twice I thought I'd put the review on this one as well. Just a quick mention for the carrier first – Jet2. Never flown with them before but cabin crew were all very pleasant and helpful and the transfer... More
