We had the most amazing time and the staff throughout the hotel, restaurant and spa couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. It was lovely to go back to see so many familiar faces and to get the sense that... More

Superb hotel and facilities, coupled with exemplary service levels. Food was of extremely high quality, albeit that this was also reflected in the pricing. Circa 37 rooms all positioned around the central hotel facility.

This was our first visit to Madeira and we were not disappointed.

This was our fourth visit to Casa Velha in as many years and we are looking forward to going again. We took friends this time to celebrate my 50th birthday and the welcome was as lovely as ever.

This splendid countryhouse hotel is located in the middle of lavish gardens with exotic plants and adjacent to a 18-hole golf course. Unlike to the rather noisy resorts hotels in Funchal you wake up in Casa Velha do Palheiro and you listen to birds singing, followed by a rich breakfast which we took every day open air. My wife an... More
