We turned up at the Black Gates to enter this hidden gem again, I was hoped we would not be disappointed after our last visit. Our room last time was great, however this time it was even better with sea views from our balcony and spacious sitting area. The bathroom would match many 5 star hotels. We were remembered by...

Just returned from a weeks stay over the New Year at this hotel and it was lovely. Our room was in the main block, defiantly the best option. Small, friendly, good staff, passable breakfast options and a great position. Taxi stand, tour and local buses a couple of minutes walk away. There's also a terrific restaurant right next door. Nice... More

The hotel is small and traditional with well tended gardens. A lovely setting with a small pool and a decking area with comfortable chairs and loungers. There are 3 buildings set within the grounds and I think 28 rooms. The breakfast is continental with a variety of choices. There is a large conservatory area near to a residents lounge. Friendly...

From the well-kept gardens to the well appointed furnishings in the public rooms,this is a real gem. Our room was clean and comfortable; the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful and the selection at breakfast was very good. Handy for a number of restaurants and the 'bus into Funchal. Well worth considering and we would have no... More

As a single traveller I booked and expected a twin room with a garden view. However, on arrival I was shown a dark, unpleasant room with a single bed which faced onto a wall. The owner advised that this was all she had to offer!!! I was not impressed and was not given an alternative. Had I been given what... More

This was our third visit to this lovely family run, small hotel. I've read some of the other reviews on here about this place. And some are not that good, but in our opinion this hotel has a certain appeal to it, yes the furniture is a bit dated and some of the rooms need a freshen up. (Which they... More

With the Vila Vicencia we got just about what we expected. A lovely hotel with plenty of old world charm. Our first floor room was spotless but a bit dark and dingy. No air conditioning just fans made the room noisy and uncomfortable, at times. The balcony was very small but the television worked good and we had teamaking faculities.In... More
