The estate is owned by the Blandy's, one of the oldest 'anglo-maderian' family, you can feel attention to details everywhere, in the hotel, restaurant, tea room, garden, spa...

We returned to Casa Velha after 10years to find that some of the staff still remembered us! Very little had changed apart from the addition of the spa, and it was a delight to be up in the hills high above Funchal with a carpet of pink flowers on the main lawn and surrounded by an array of camellias in...

Wonderful service and food mouthwateringly delicious and not expensive. Cover, main course, wine and coffee- 50 Euros for 2. Recommend medallions medium rare. Seafood risotto yummy too. Added bonus- it was 200 metres from our hotel so no hilly trek afterwards.

we stayed for a week's golf package with friends. We all had rooms on the first floor golf block, beside the main building. Service was exceptional. The rooms were fine, although some bits did look a bit tired, with rust marks in the shower cubicle. Warned by other contributors, we brought our own tea and kettle, so early morning tea... More
