Stunning location by the sea. Fantastick sea view from balcony. Spacious room. The hotel is 'out dated' but the location makes up for it. A big bonus is free entance too the two neighbouring hotels Roca Mar and Royal Orchide. I spent most of my time at the fantastic terraces at Roca Mar, enjoying the sun either on the sun... More

Having been told that Funchal was the only place to stay on Madeira, we were very pleased with the Hotel Oliveira. Recently purchased by the owners of the next door Roc O Mar and Royal Orchid, all 3 hotels are run independently however facilities are available to all. We chose B&B basis and had to go to the Roc O... More

The hotel is located in a quiet corner of the Canico. Our room was spacious with comfortable beds, big bathroom, little kitchen and fantastic view to the ocean from the window. Hotel is clean. Friendly and helpful stuff, English speaking. Wi-Fi is accessible only at 3 floor. There is no sand beach here, but the hotel has own pool and... More

The room was spacious, nice and comfortable. But we were put in the annex across the road of the hotel after paying extra for a sea view. Our view was of the road and cars. The sea view was there, but only if you strained your neck and looked out. The staff were friendly enough about our complaint, but basically... More

We had booked the Roca Mar but when we arrived we were taken to the adjacent hotel, the Tropical: we didn't mind as we got a free sea view room with a kitchenette. The roo m was spacious and clean but otherwise nothing special and a bit dated. What makes the hotel memorable are the staff who are outstanding in... More

I was invited here by my parents who have had a timeshare here for the past 15 years and my husband and I really enjoyed it. We got one of the newly renovated rooms, which was lovely and clean, had it's own little kitchen, flatscreen tv, big bathroom and nice balcony with beautiful view over the ocean. As Madeira is...

The hotel is located on the cliffs next to the ocean, in a small village with a few restaurants and nothing to do. Hotel has its own minibus service to Funchal, but is limited to 4-8 passengers... Rooms tired, but spacious and clean. Friendly staff. Restaurant newly renovated, ok food and service, but will rather recommend the restaurant just across... More
