We were looking for a relaxing quiet holiday and that's exactly what we got. The hotel was spotless and the majority of staff were excellent, just a couple of young grumpy waitresses but I wouldn't mark the hotel down for that. The food was very good but I think if we had stayed longer than a week it might have... More

Superb hotel. Spotlessly clean rooms lovely and very comfortable. The staff were so freindly and nothing was too much trouble. Calheta is very quiet and not much for kids but perfect for couples looking to chill out and be looked after. Going back for more in march! Cant wait!!

Hotel excellent, staff could not do enough to help. Would have preferred a sea front room but the room was fine. Food, excellent three to four course meals on all inclusive. Great relaxing holiday, would go back again.

My fiancé and I visited this hotel for a cheeky winter week in the Madeiran sunshine. We went for the "All Inclusive" Option. The hotel is ideally situated beside the Calhetta beach (one of only 2 Sandy Beaches on the Island). The hotel attracts guests from many European destinations; Scandinavia, France, The Netherlands, Germany and the U.K. We think this... More

Strange Hotel, Quite Good, Lift goes down when you think you are going up, strange. Whether very cold in June, couldn't even sit by the pool. Hotel staff not very helpful, room was comfortable, H/K Staff kept the rooms very clean. Madeira is very mountinous and "hilly" but pretty.

If you want a quiet holiday this is the place. This Hotel is about 35/40 Minutes journey by road from Funchal on the South West Coast of the Island. Its' location is very quite and not surrounded by the usual clutter of Bars and Restaurants Were on an all inclusive basis. The food was excellent with a good choice of... More

I have just come back from a week break with my husband and three teenage children (aged 15,16,18). The place itself is quite nice. In hindsight it is designed more for couples who want to relax, not teenagers! Reception staff deserve a special mention. It's always nice when you are greeted with a warm welcome to the start of your... More

We booked a cheaper mountain view room and was pleasantly surprised to be given a king size sea/harbour view room at no extra cost. Free beach towels. Kitchenette. Recycling bins were impressive too. The food in the hotel is very good with a selection of fish,meat,vegetarian and gluten free. A clean modern hotel with several welcoming lounge areas. Staff were... More

We spent the week of 8th June at this very good hotel on the all inclusive basis. Overall this is a great hotel offering excellent food and our apartment was huge. We were located across "the bridge" at the rear of the hotel which was quiet and fine for us as we only slept there and spent most of the... More

I returned on 2nd March after spending a week at this hotel. Had I stayed longer I think I would have slashed my wrists due to boredom. There is nothing to do during the day if you haven't hired a car or pay the hotel for their bus to Funchal. This costs 19 Euros return. Considering the distance this hotel... More
