On a wet January we found this restaurant and hotel. Patronised by some friendly locals, always a good sign! Good service and excellent food and in the summer you can benefit from a terrace with a fabulous view of the bay.

Beautiful view from the rooms, but the sun rises just in front of the windows, so be prepared for a strong light in the room early in the morning and for a rapid increase in the room's temperature. The rooms in the back are very humid, so probably better to get one in the front (that also has a nice... More

We stayed here for a full week and enjoyed every minute. The room was clean and comfortable. Fab views over the bay. Even without the 5 star treatment, this lovely hotel satisfied all our needs. The two girls in reception were so helpful and accommodating. We arrived one day late due to adverse weather conditions in Madeira and they took... More

Whatever you do, book a sea view room at the Costa Linda - the view and sound of the Atlantic on the shore is very soothing. All the staff we met were charming, friendly and very helpful and we were made to feel very welcome. Our bedroom was only just large enough, it was quite difficult to fit in suitcases... More

Stayed here for one night on our walking tour of Eastern Madeira. This was a fabulous find - small, comfortable hotel, room with terrace overlooking the sea. Staff very welcoming, and dinner in the restaurant open to non-residents was fantastic, served by a friendly and knowledgeable young waiter. Highly recommend Costa Linda and this small town for a night or... More

What a lovely place to stay. No frills but sooo amazingly clean. Our room had a sea view and how beautiful to sit on the balcony and watch the sun rise. Reception staff really helpful. You can set off for fantastic walks from here taking your hotel picnic with you. When you get back pop over the road for a... More

The view from the balcony of our room was hard to beat, overlooking the Atlantic ahead, mountains and the distant coast to the right and the local blue lido embedded in its craggy volcanic pedestal to the left. The setting of the Costa Linda is magnificent and the sound of the waves breaking on the shore is soothing but not... More

The welcome and the help given to us in planning our stay was outstanding. The reception staff were multi-lingual (good French and English and maybe more), and went to great lengths to give good advice and to support to us. However, bright street lights on the promenade with flimsy curtains meant that the quality of sleep was very poor. Room... More

We stayed for two nights at the Costa Linda and were well suited. It's exactly what it purports to be - clean, in a good location, and with friendly staff. The bedrooms (we had one with a balcony overlooking the sea) are small but they have all you might need, and downstairs there's a restaurant and bar serving breakfast and... More
