We had requested a room in the log cabin when booking the previous February but were given one in the main hotel. Breakfasts were good, dinners average, the staff lukewarm. Comfortable beds but room was basic and there were various health and safety issues!

This hotel is set in the mountains, away from the hussle and bussle. We stayed in the lodge. Room was clean and suitable equipped. View from room was brilliant. Sound isolation could be better. Nature at the doorstep. Some comments are not very complimentary about the food. We had two very tasty evening meals there. Loved our stay and if... More

EVERY SINGLE THING. You and the nature. Very quiet area. Book a room in this villa with no hesitation at all. The most comfortable bed ever, the greatest breakfast of all. Taking your breakfast outside on the terrace and drinking your coffee under the rainbow (literally) it's the most beautiful thing you could imagine. Lunch area is also very nice,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the pousada. The views wer spectacular with many pathways to walk through to even more spectacular views. A levada trail just above the pousada (a bit near the edge in parts). The professional staff were easy to warm up to the longer you got to know them. We enjoyed quite a few exceptional... More

We like the place and the view on the restaurant terrace. The hotel is situated in the center of the Madeira high in the mountains. No other hotels or houses are around. You need the car to go everywhere (it is good to lend the car at the airport) - if you have it, it is ok. This good place... More

We stayed for six nights so had plenty of time to study the hotel and restaurant. I would say that the hotel is mainly for lovers who like hiking and nature so if you don't fit into this category you may be out of place but cyclists and outdoor types not romantically attached are also in evidence. The hotel is... More

It started off with surly, almost aggressive service, the wine list was deplorable. Not a single Douro red was on offer. The food, my food, was not worthy of any restaurant anywhere. I chose a chicken breast stuffed with prawns. It arrived in about ten minutes, the flesh was flaccid, no substance to it. The level of salt led me... More

Comfortable and relaxing place to stay and just right for a walking holiday, you can access some of the more local trails quite nearby. The scenery and outlook from the Pousada are beautiful, mountains and countryside and below the local village of Serra Agua which is lit up at night. The room was comfy, warm and spacious although there were... More

We have enjoyed the Spanish paradors and this was our first meal at a pousada. We were not disappointed. Excellent choice of Madeiran dishes and they catered exceptionally well for our two kids of 10 and 7. Very friendly and amenable staff.
