I stayed in this hotel 3 nights with my group. The hotel is clean, modern, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great, 2 minutes to the beach, restaurants around and in the hotel, 5 minutes to the airport.

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

We stayed here only 1 night, just before leaving Madeira from Funchal Airport. By taxi, it only takes about 5 minutes (daytime without luggage: 7€, nighttime during Easter weekend and with luggage: 17€). We left at 5am and they gave us a small breakfast (2 slices of bread with ham/cheese, a banana and a bottle of juice). We had the... More

This neat, modern small hotel is in the centre of Machico, a quiet spot, and a few minutes walk from the sea and both artificial and natural beaches. It is family run by a helpful couple who speak many languages! Although there are various restaurants close by, we kept coming back to their yummy food (despite the TA comments on... More

We had a three day stay at White Waters before our two week stay in Funchal and have to say we were very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, the helpfulness of the staff, the lovely little beach across the road and the price, which we pleasantly surprised to find included a nice buffet style breakfast. Only one minor... More

At the end of our holiday we had a family meeting in order to evaluate it all. This hotel turned out nr 1 in the chart. My two sons, wife and I came to this rank because of its efficiency, modern look, breakfast and central location. Close by there are a couple of nice restaurants (Pescador!!) which we would like...

We stayed here again for the 2nd time and would go back. Not much going on in Machico itself though, but near to the airport. The hotel itself is family run, friendly, clean, modern. Food good too. We found ourselves travelling to Sanata Cruz though as Machico not got much life. It has a good beach though and quit charming.

The hotel is owned by a nice couple. It is located at the center of Machico which is convenience to reach the bus stop to & from airport and it just take 5 mins. Else just around €10 for taxi to the airport if you have many & heavy luggage like us, its worthy. The entire hotel with simple &... More
