Fantastic room with view on the trees, excellent toiletries, tea-coffee facilities (but like anywhere outside the UK bring your peppermint tea) robes and towels for the pool, beautiful gardens, and lovely service. Really nice place to relax with a gorgeous breakfast. Lovely parc a hundred meters away but apart from that it's in the middle of nowhere so fantastic if... More

Beautiful hotel, very friendly staff, who could not do enough for you. Hotel was like one of Agatha Christies locations in her books, 1920 era. In the village just along the road there was a lovely garden with peacocks, deer and horses, but the best of all was the viewpoint at the very back of the gardens which had the... More

This hotel is quite unique. The Art Deco features and the beautiful building make you feel you are visiting a quaint old English home. I kept expecting to find miss marple just around the corner. Yet the rooms are modern with all the features you would expect. Excellent restaurant, small bar lounge and you can even get a proper afternoon... More

This sister hotel to the Cliff Bay was a perfect port of call on a jeep safari. But for the tropical plants, it would be easy to imagine being in England during a perfect summer c. 1930. I am not a golfer but I could imagine staying there as an oasis of tranquility with lots of walks. Our short visit... More

As a change from Funchal, we booked a 4 day stay at the Serra Golf hotel in Santo da Serra. This is a small (21 room) hotel in a rural location but offering the usual Porto Bay comfort and facilities (pool, spa) plus an excellent restaurant. We stayed half board and found plenty of choice for our 4 day stay.... More

I loved this hotel, it was very luxurious and intimate because of the small size. We had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the food was excellent. The pool was lovely too. And it fantastic value for money! Wish we'd stayed more than one night.
