We decided to spend 2 nights here as it was close to Pico do Arieiro (~20-25min drive) and also looked relaxing. The hotel itself is very cozy and the restaurant serves quality food. We didn't spend a ton of time relaxing outside but the patios and outdoor areas were very nice. The room was also big and comfortable with very fast internet (so I could stream the NBA finals easily). After a long day of hiking it was the perfect place to come back to, relax, and drink some wine on the patio. Price was also very reasonable. I would very much recommend this place to other travelers.

Hotel's Favorite
Just finishing spending a relaxing week's holiday here with my wife. Booked though Jet2 holidays which included private transfers from the airport which is only 15 mins away. We had one of the standard rooms (109) on the lower floor of the annexe. Half way through the stay we were moved to the upper floor (208). The latter had a twin bed the former a double both being very large and comfortable. Boths rooms were of the same size and layout. Plenty of room and well appointed with many TV stations available including BBC World. There was free wifi of a good speed. The rooms were kept clean by the staff who were very efficient. The lower room opened out on to a small patio with table and chairs. The upper room was much lighter. The breakfasts were buffet with an excellent selection of hot and cold food to meet the needs of both UK and European guests. There was a wide variety of guests. We sampled the afternoon tea on our arrival and my wife said the scones were the best she had ever sampled, praise indeed. Lunch was only available on Sat and Sunday. We were on a half board stay. Usually the table d'hote can be rather limited but there were over 20 dishes available on it with another 10 additional for the a la carte. The tapas starter was particulary good and the portions very generous. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful and they also staffed the front desk. There was a lovely indoor pool which was a good temperature. There were towels in the pool in the room and on the loungers around the pool which you could replace the used ones, a nice touch.It was a short walk into the village which came to life on the Sunday with the local market. We hired a car for 4 days, as the buses are not frequent. This allowed us to explore this part of the island a bit more as we had only had an organised trip on a previous visit to the island. you would need a car to go to Funchal as the buses only appear to run during the "rush" hour. We really enjoyed our stay. The only comment, and it is a comment, not a criticism is the wine list could give a little more detail of each wine. We would be happy to return again, but probably later in the year as it is slightly cooler being higher up which is a plus point in the summer but not in the winter. We did not find it cold coming from Scotland but the locals did all wrapped up with scarves with a temp of 16C compared to 19C on the coast

We came back from this delightful hotel a week ago. We had been on a day's visit some time ago when the weather was cloudy and cool. It is in the mountains. We were blessed with beautiful weather. We had upgraded to room 301 which was large and comfortable. The bed too was huge. We do prefer a walk-in shower but it wasn't a great problem. We had half board which meant that we didn't have to go searching for places to eat at night. These, by the way are limited as it is a very quiet area. A good choice of starters and main meals which were generous servings. We particularly liked the Portuguese Tapas for starters and the Coq au Vin was delicious. A lovely lounge area where you could sit after dinner with a terrace on warm evenings. Mirellia, was helpful-thank you for the Madeira honey cake which is the best we have tasted since coming to Madeira! We would recommend Serra Golf if you want peace and tranquillity but also if you play golf there is a course close by with the most amazing views.

Room 301 in the old part of the hotel is just amazing. Lots of space, looks a bit old fashioned but is very comfortable. With the little terrace in the evening sun, just great. People in the restaurant and at the reception desk are a bit distant. We and also other guests asked whether there was a receipt to sign for the drinks at the restaurant; was not necessary. Checking out, the bill was not correct; they changed it immediately but with a signed receipt this discussion would not have been necessary.

An interesting hotel, just a little bit different. Good facilities. could do with an accessible ice machine. Sadly the weather wasn't too good during our stay but the garden did look fascinating. The location is a little remote so a car is needed for sight seeing.
