I can't believe some people moan about this hotel for the money they have paid. We just paid about 30EUR per night. It's obviously basic compared with the Vila Gale but that's 4 times the price AND they charge for parking which is free here. Staff all friendly and helpful, Breakfast is cooked or continental and adequate although same every... More

Would stay here again without a shadow of doubt. Staff are excellent, friendly, and hard working. Maybe not a 4 star but who cares. Great value for money, 5 mins walk to the sea. Lovely pool. Rooms are fine. Santa cruz is such a lovely quaint town, so cheap to eat and drink and close to the airport. 5 euro... More

Firstly the good: The staff (bar one grumpy woman) were extremely friendly and happy to help Despite its location next to an overpass and beneath a flight route it is surprisingly quiet Really well located for bus journeys - we went to Funchal for 5 euros and the bus stop is directly opposite the hotel Food is plentiful and tasty...

A good budget family run hotel, a bit limited staff wise, most staff seem to have three or four tasks to carry out in the hotel so things a very laid back. Rooms were clean and comfortable, a bit noisy with the motorway bridge running over the pool and the hotel is near to the airport. Santa Cruz is a... More

Went in June 2016 to this hotel with my 2 children. I have asked for family room and it was done immediately with no extra cost. Staff was very helpful, particularly Marco on front desk and his wife who works in the kitchen. I have to say that I have not felt so safe and at ease for a long... More

The only disappointment really was having to pay extra for an upgrade - room on the top floor with a balcony. The no cost option was... More

It is a very good hotel, but I would have called it more if 3 star hotel not a 4 star hotel - however, the towels and bed sheets were changed daily and the cleanliness of the hotel was impeccable and the breakfast was great added bonus that set us up for the day (my only gripe would be pool...
