We stayed in Villa 51 which was clean, spacious and well-equipped. We were close to the lovely pool which was never busy and there was an honesty bar with snacks and drinks. We ate at the clubhouse twice and at the Casa Velha hotel (very posh!) on our first night, which are both part of The Palheiro Estate. We also... More

Palheiro Village was the really good. Everyone is nice there the atmosphere is really good too. The place has a really good "aura". The house are really comfortable and clean, they clean it every 2 days of the week. The place is really good for families. There is a GYM, two pools, golf, a place to "chill" with a snooker... More

I have just returned from a one-week holiday to Medeira with my wife and stayed in a 2-bedroomed apartment at Palheiro Village. The apartment had wonderful views of the sea and also of Funchal town.

We stayed here for one week and enjoyed some spectacular scenery including whales in the bay. Location wise you'll need a car to get up the hills and back down to funchal (10-15 mins drive) but equally we were well located to travel anywhere on the island. The airport was nearby but unnoticeable, funchal was nearer but not a disturbance.... More

We stayed in a 2-bed apartment with Sea views and Funchal views. The apartments were very clean, spacious and well-equipped. They are furnished beautifully and the balcony was a great place to relax. The pool has some fantastic views over Funchal city, and was often very quiet, making it ideal for morning relaxation. The apartment has plenty of car parking... More

We took 3 teenagers to Palheiro Village and stayed in a 3 bedroomed villa (39) with pool. We couldn't have asked for more and can't wait to come back.
