Well in the islands only town centre it is a relatively basic but well equipped and hygienic 3 star hotel. It's perfect for short stays and well recommended. Having said that street side rooms can be noisy during the day.

We spent a night here after taking the ferry from Madeira. It was set back in the road and the frontage was smaller than I expected. It was clean and tidy with air conditioning in rooms.There was a swimming pool, and free Wi-Fi. Our room was very quiet. A TV with a limited amount of channels was on the wall.... More

Very clean, good price, good continental breakfast and close to the center of Porto Santo and to the beach. If you book the hotel and the ship with Porto Santo Line from Madeira you could get a better price.

The island of Porto Santo is very beautiful! It 'ok for a relaxing few days. The room was very basic and situated above the pool that bordering on a bar open almost all night (until 2 am and then again from 6 am ??). So that sleep was disturbed! The breakfast was just decorous! 2 days on 3 the room... More

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

We had a nice room with a double bed. They are reasonable sized for a couple and very lighty, cleaned and fresh. Their... 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

This is the hotel with the best location in the city of Vila Baleira, in Porto Santo. Near the city center, with commerce, shops, restaurants, pubs and snack-bar's. 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
