Lovely hotel set high above Funchal. Excellent friendly service from all the staff. We had a beautiful junior suite in the main part of the hotel which was spacious and comfortable.

From the minute you arrive you are treated to first class service. The staff could not have been more helpful, from arranging a late night dinner reservation to suggestions on where to get that perfect pair of shoes for a special night out. The room was well appointed, two double beds, massive bathroom, and very, very clean. The gardens are... More

This place is magnificent, peaceful,elegant, lovely. Despite being on an iland, one has to think of it in terms of being on an higher hill, to make sure to have the proper dressing for fresh nights like we had in april. The service is excellent.

Our stay end of October beginning November was a nice experience. The hotel is very british, including design, bathroom fixtures, furniture, etc. The food was excellent, of the highest standard, served in a very pleasant setting. Service friendly and prompt.

Amazing place to stay were you feel relaxed welcomed and surrounded by beautiful gardens and century old majestic trees. Great food ! Why the restaurant doesn't have a Michelin star puzzles me? Golf and views from club house are the icing on the cake!

We (parents and two teens) had a wonderful golf-holiday at the Casa Velha do Palheiro. All staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food served is delicious. The golf course is in good condition with fast and challenging greens. This hotel can be highly recommended by us.
