My wife and I stopped here for one night due to its proximity to the airport after evening arrival. Located just back from the seafront in the old part of town. Staff were helpful and friendly, both at reception and in the restaurant, where the food was fine and good value. The room was spotlessly clean with a huge comfortable... More

We even got an enjoyable view out over the ocean and the price was a delight. There is a crepe and gelato bar two blocks away that does everything with style and creativity. Machico is unfairly maligned. It is no Funchal, but it has a flavor of its own.

I've stopped there twice in the last few months. Great location close to the sea and with restaurants all around - although the hotel restaurant itself is very good. The owners, Fatima and Manuel, are always around and make it seem like a real family hotel. It was a bit cold on one occasion, so Manuel quickly found us some... More

Our stay in the White Waters Hotel was a highlight of our visit to Madeira. The hotel is situated on the beach block and it was great to wake up to the lapping of the waves and the chirping of the birds. The rooms are so comfortable, it feels like home. The hosts are friendly and very helpful directing their... More
