“Comfortable, friendly & with sea view at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Very nice, relatively small family-run hotel with friendly and helpful service.

Rooms are very clean and of a comfortable size with good beds.
Also the balcony is spacious enough to accomodate not only a table and two chairs but even a large hammock, and the view of the sea and lots of flowers is great.

We can only agree to several other comments mentioning the delicious food! Fish and seafood plays an important role on the menu, but there are good meat dishes as well and the owners did not hesitate to provide excellent vegetarian options as well.

Having a car at your disposal facilitates a holiday in Madeira. - Engenho Velho is very conveniently located: with easy access to the new coast road, but at the same time absolutely quiet and surrounded mainly by gardens, orchards and a residential neighbourhood.

Stayed here a couple of nights as part of a walking holiday. What a surprise ! Management really nice ( let us borrow a fan and mozzie killer). Rooms, pool, and hammock all good. Food is fantastic. Could have stayed there a week and eaten the entire menu!! Special thanks to our waiter (don`t know his name but he lived in UK for a short time) he was absolutely fantastic. The staff were all lovely, and Jimmy the dog, who is a real character. First class place!!!

We have stayed at the Engenho Velho a number of times at the weekend and have really enjoyed the hospitality and relaxing surroundings.

It has a beautiful setting with lovely sea views, a swimming pool and great restaurant - definitely recommend the octopus and tuna which is excellent. There is also a really good selection of wines and the house brandy which is worth trying.

Would recommend a stay here to anyone and we will definitely be making a return visit - hopefully soon!
