This was our second stay, this time for two weeks. We had a Junior Suite which was very spacious and well-appointed. The level of cleanliness and service in general of our rooms was excellent. This is a relatively small, but extremely well-appointed hotel located away from the 'Hotel Zone' in a residential area. It is beautifully furnished and there are... More

The place is exceptional with regard to cleanliness and decor. Really quiet air conditioning (a must for northern British). Good restaurant and very courteous staff. Pity it's a very steep walk back from town but the taxis are cheap.

Stayed here for two nights on a two week holiday to Madeira. Arrived late to a warm and friendly welcome from the staff who kept the restaurant open for us so we could get a meal despite the late arrival. Food and service both good.

A lovely hotel situated near the centre of the old town but up a steep climb, so may not be suitable for all. However, only a 4-5 Euro taxi ride from the marina area.

Due to having to cancel previous trip to Thailand due to recent bombings, we moved quickly to find a relaxing holiday in sun. Madeira didn't disappoint in that respect. The hotel itself was peaceful, clean and with friendly staff to look after us for our week. Beautiful gardens, nice pool area, and relaxed public areas made for excellent stay.
