I and my husband, we had a very magical stay at this hotel for a week long. Our room was perfect, kept in the very best order. I was delighted that it was refreshed and cleaned every day. The room had a view which we will never forget and for which we will return. We were delighted by the food... More

I would like to start by saying that Elena Miu the resident photographer was excellent in taking great family pictures of my wife, my son and myself. She was always very polite to all of us. She was always available to take pictures anywhere in the resort. At the end of our stay, Elena gave us a disc with all... More

This was our first trip to Porto Santo, and our first family holiday since having our son. The island itself is beautiful and "unspoilt", we stayed in September 14 and experienced the Columbus festival which was fantastic, they certainly put on a show! The Vila Baleira Hotel was very clean but for a two week stay we felt could have... More

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday break, do not look any further. Porto Santo is the place where you want to be. Amazing empty beaches and stunning views, everything you need to chill out.We have stayed there in May 2014. The hotel is placed in the quiet area, far from the city centre, but with a direct access... More

I stayed at the hotel VB with my partner in September 2014. Firstly I must say that the hotel is kept spotlessly clean and the staff are amazing, always on hand to help, and with a smile. The food was not great - felt very samey day after day and it just felt like a work canteen - but for... More

A recent trip to Madeira was cut short because we could not land due to bad weather. So after a few failed attempts getting there we ended up diverting to Porto Santo. Buses to us straight to Vila Baleira and I have never experienced such efficiency in all my years traveling. This hotel had actually closed for the winter but... More
