Santana is on the northern coast tourist route, mainly because of the examples of ancient traditional Madeiran houses to be found there. Como hotel is large and modern with ample parking and we had a comfortable room for our one-night stay. It's not only the sole hotel but also the sole restaurant, although there are three fast foodies, including a... More

we had a stop in Santana for lunch before touring the Thatched houses nearby. The restaurant was packed to the rim. We were a group of 15 people, so lunch was ordered beforehand and was ready when we arrived. The food tasted good, and the service was good as well. Main course of fish, or meat (vegeterian for me), dessert,... More

It must have been this hotel where two of our family-members got ill. In the hall on the way to our room there was a disgusting smell, irritating the nostrils. The rooms were sort of oke, not cosy anyway. Didn't get the feeling we were quite welcome too. Think I would search a little further..

This hotel has been booked for us as our last accomodation on Madeira of a one week vacation. Hotel O Colmo is a bit hard to find, there are no signs, but after asking around we finally got to it. The rooms are huge in size, with beautiful wooden floors, a seperate guest room, where you can watch television. The... More

The hotel is located about 5 min walk from the village center, adjacent to a large restaurant that appears to be a popular stopover on day trips from Funchal. Rooms are quite nice, with wooden floors, a balcony with a view over the village and the sea, and comfortable beds. The rooms have a TV, but no fan/airconditioning (it's quite... More

Stayed here two nights as part of walking holiday. The hotel is rather isolated in a small sprawling village in the north of the island but would be OK for a coup;e of nights if touring by car. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Bedrooms were average, clean and comfortable but cold in February! There is a small indoor... More

Two nights here. On arriving the reception staff were a little abrupt and surly. Room adequate. Pool okay. Breakfast is buffet style and a little "sad". The coffee machine is awful, and produces the worst coffee on the island.

Staff are fantastic but food is overpriced and geared for tourists only. No locals there (I speak Portuguese). I would got to the local restaurant up the hill (oposite petrol station), much better food, extremelly friendly people and very reasonably priced.
