My recent stay here was just the right mix of relaxation and fun. The beautiful mountain setting of this hotel, and in particular its gardens give you no choice but to forget about everything but enjoying your holiday. My friends and I were looked after by the most amiable staff who also really helped us with recommendations for seeing Madeira.... More

To call the Casa Velha anything but perfect would not do it justice. We were on a boys weekend, 6 of us for golf and big game fishing, and I can only say I have never been treated better by a hotel and it's staff. We were collected from the airport dropped at the hotel for a quick change then... More

The Casa Velha is like a hidden oasis set in the hills above Funchal. It has a very relaxing pool area and a fantastic tennis court (where the staff bring out a small table complete with table cloth and silver tray with chilled water while you are playing!). But the best part about it is the beautiful Palheiro Golf Course.... More

Would recommend a stay at this hotel. The rooms were beautifully sympathetic to the period of the building. The atmosphere was relaxed and peaceful. You really feel like you are getting away from everything when you stay here, like your private, personal escape. Even though im not a golfer, I would truely recommend it for a girly weekend of relaxing... More

After an exceptionally busy summer and moving house at the beginning of August we just had to get away from it all. On the recommendation of good friends we visited the website of Hotel Casa Velha and booked a weeks stay in paradise (aka Madeira island). We were already familiar with Madeira having spent a week in Funchal on the... More

Their website does not do justice to the expanse of the beautiful, tropical and tranquil setting the hotel is set in. The hotel itself is charming and the staff throughout were both friendly, efficient and professional making everything from checking in to ordering dinner or asking for directions to the gardens a trouble free experience. We ate at the club... More

A view from the top Old-world charm, flawless service and excellent food–breakfast, lunch and dinner–in a bucolic, other-worldly setting made our week-long stay at Casa Velha one of our most redemptive holiday weeks in many years. The hotel staff was exceptionally bright, friendly and attentive without the unctuous servitude that often mars the best hotel personnel. Of note was the... More

This hotel is in a beautiful peaceful setting, the rooms are spacious and delightfully decorated and furnished, and spotlessly clean. The staff are the best I have encountered, they could not be more helpful. Excellent waiting staff, they were real characters. The food was just exquisite The gardens were beautiful, and well worth a visit I cannot wait to go... More

Visited the hotel earlier this year and had a very restful few days, though with some mixed feelings. The main house is wonderful and full of character, but the vast majority of the rooms (Std, Sup and Suites) are in rather charmless modern blocks outside. While very comfortable, our Superior room was a bit soul-less and maybe even a touch... More
