Efficient bus service (No.1) leaves for the town (Funchal) every 20 mins or so from the hotel entrance(tickets available at the hotel)there is also a courtesy minibus but it only runs twice... More

Amasing view from every room in the hotel. Each window face the ocean which makes every morning and evening just lovely. This is a strong advantage of the hotel. Hotel rooms are spacious and clean. The food is ok. Breakfasts was plentiful, dinners always with the variety of local fish. Although the hotel was on the suburbs of Funchal it... More

We stayed here during the second week of March. The hotel is situated well outside Funchal but no. 01 public bus stops on the road above the hotel and will take you to the centre for 2 euros or get the hotel courtesy bus that leaves in the morning and picks up late afternoon. The room we were in was... More

The view is wonderful overlooking the Atlantic and there is no other noisy in the room but, the soothing music from the waves! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the services - from the room, breakfast table to the Spa - are excellent! I definitely recommend Orca Praia Hotel and would like to go back sooner... More

Perfect. Large rooms, huge balcony with a sea view (all rooms have sea view!), good food, excellent quiet location, friendly staff, everything clean. And that sound of sea waves at night - you wake up, and hear it, and sleep again. I miss it now, after the trip.

This was our second visit to this lovely hotel. The staff are nice, the rooms are spacious with very big balconies (all facing the sea and very private), the food is very good with locally caught fish (including Black Scabbard found only off Madeira and Japan). The soup is delicious and there is a salad bar with a good variety.... More

I stayed in this lovely hotel with my parents for two weeks in September 2013. The great thing about it is that all rooms have a sea view, you can enjoy sunrises and sunsets, and sounds of waves as long as you like. There is a very attractive path leading from the hotel to the pool area and the beach,... More

The hotel is a unique architectural piece, faced to the south with beautiful garden, own black sand beach and medium sized pool. It is situated in a silent outskirt of Funchal with a perfect access to the centre by hotel minibus or by local bus service; the bus stop is right in front of the hotel. The hotel is well... More

I was looking for a quite place during a business trip in the city and ultimately found this hotel on the internet. We booked two rooms for our four days stay in the city and it turned out to be a great choice. Property is well maintained and very clean. Rooms are excellent and view of sunset and sunrise form...
