The hotel is located in the town, about 1.5 miles from the airport. It is ideally situated for local restaurants & bars. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Breakfast was ok. There is no lift, so if stairs are a problem, consider requesting a ground floor room.

We were here for one night while on a trip to the Madeira Islands. Porto Santo is not a very big place-so the location is fine. You can walk just about anywhere. It is about a 4-5 euro cab ride from the ferry. It is an easy walk to the beach or most of the restaurant/bars in the area. The... More

All we ever need from a hotel is a clean bed, bathroom and nice relaxation areas. The room was fine, the breakfasts good but the same each day, eg. breads,toaster,fruit (unfortunately tinned!!),cereal and cheese and ham. Coffee was like tar but other drinks OK. Never any teaspoons and no tea on the first day, no staff around either. Reception staff... More

It has the beach just across the main street and if you don't want to stay in the nearest beach, you have a bus terminal to another beaches. But everything else its... More

We booked through Porto Santo Line, the company that operates the boat from Madeira to Porto Santo, it was for 3 rooms, five people. It cost us, 2 nights and the boat trips, under 100€ each, which is pretty cheap I guess. Check-in is quick, don't expect to be led to your room, or get too much info out of... More
