I’m not normally fussy about the welcome I get from hotel reception but in this instance the lady looked rather surprised by my arrival and behaved as though she couldn’t find my reservation which was rather unnerving! I was initially shown the wrong (and cheaper) room despite

Dear Tripadvisor member, At first we would like to thank you for the time spent rating our hotel, which is something extremely important to us, as we work to provide our guests the best experience abroad possible. Secondly, we would like to explain some aspects of your comments. Regarding the size of the room please note that our mother house building is a culture heritage building of public interest which we cannot change by law, however all rooms are the size required by law for hotels of our category as for a double superior is concerned please note that the room assigned to your reservation was a double Superior single room, as you certainly understand the other superior rooms available belong to the category of double superior family rooms. Concerning our room's furniture, it is a typical Madeiran design, which represents a big part of our history, it was carefully chosen with the intension of keeping our traditions alive and recreating a traditional and welcoming environment for our guests. As far as televisions are concerned, we would like you to know that they are already in the process of being replaced, however, because this is a large capacity investment, the process is gradually taking place. The buzzing noise in the room was not reported during your stay If you had informed us we would gladly had communicated to our maintenance department the situation. As regards the toiletries not replenished, we have 2 new colleagues in the service and even if our housekeeper check all rooms, this detail has failed, we apologize for the inconvenience and we would have liked that those kind of detail was reported at reception so that we had opportunity to fix this situation. Concerning the breakfast, It is composed by several kinds of bread and typical pastries, 3 kinds of cheese and ham, as well as bacon and fresh eggs, 2 kinds of sausages, tomato, fresh cheese, mushrooms, and baked beans cereals and yogurts, coffee, tea and juice, as well to gluten and lactose free and vegetarian or vegan choices as well. Concerning the “bolo do caco” it is a typical tradition made by our grandparents to accompany lunch and dinner meals, it is not our custom to eat the traditional “bolo do caco” at breakfast, we are truly sorry we didn’t had opportunity to tried it during a meal at the restaurant. We hope we had been able to clarify your comments, which we thank you again for all comments made, whether positive or negative are important and help us to improve the quality of service provided. Kind regards,

This hotel is way out of Sao Vicente centre up a steep hill so a car is recommended. It's location is part of it's charm as it is quiet and secluded with lovely views of the valley, mountains and sea. All rooms on 2 upper floors have balconies but I think a mountain view room is

The staff are very friendly and the restuarant and breakfasts are both excellent. The rooms are quite small with a tiny old fashioned television and wardrobes that try to harm you.The pool and Jacuzzi were cold. The Hotel is located away from the town centre and is a steep

I really liked this place. It was quiet in there and I enjoyed relax in jacuzzi and pool. Nerby you can find a nice town so a perfect location for walks. Dinner was tasty but seemed to me a little pricey. On the other hand, breakfast was excellent and for better price. Nice

Good afternoon, Mrs. Alison. Thesecurity level of Madeira Islands are in general, top high. You can walk everywhere without looking behind your shoulder :) . The main road (nearest bus stop) is 50 metres aways from our hotel. If you prefer having lunch instead of dinner you have to inform reception desk with a 24 hours notice. Kind regards, Victor Gouveia - Reservations Dept.

I would echo entirely the comments made above. The quality, variety and quantity of food is excellent and, like the previous respondent, we also opted out of lunch on some days. The hotel was happy to provide something smaller instead such as soup or a sandwich/toastie in place of the midday meal.
