For everyone that is focused on budget I think this place is satisfying place. Apartements have their own magic, they are kinda clean and calm. Biggest advantage is that they are well situated from city centre, marina and sights(5 minutes walk). Only disadvantage was kinda weak

We spent a week at Alegria Apartments. And were allocated a studio apartment at the third floor part of the Alegria block. No elevator with a full luggage wasn't fun. The room was quite spacious and were pleasantly surprised by the big balcony with a view over Fortaleza do Pico.

Dear Alex T, Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. We are extremely sad that our orange juice was not up to your expectations and have spoiled your overall experience. Nevertheless, we are glad that you found the complimentary upgrade to a studio with balcony along with the king side beds and the cleaning service to be pleasantly surprising . Warm regards from Madeira! Luísa

I’m really pleased we did not read the reviews on here otherwise it would have spoilt our holiday even before it had began. We move to a timeshare but as travel is cheaper on Sunday we booked a cheap and cheerful stay for the one night. We found the apartments easily and a

Our stay at this hotel was ok, the room was basic and included a small kitchenette. We had a massive problem with electricity. Every time we wanted to cook something on the hob or boil the kettle or use the microwave the electricity would go off. We spend ages trying to figure

Dear Auranoir, Thank you so much for sharing your opinion regarding your experience at São Paulo e Alegria. We are really sorry about the issues with the electricity in your room. There were emergency repair works that affected a small but particular area of the building where your room was located which caused some electrical problems. Our maintenance department was immediately informed after you signaled this and took the necessary measures, but as you well mention,those have not been completly effective. Under these circumstances, and despite all our efforts to minimize the problem, your disappointment is quite understandable and we are trully very sorry that you have left with such negative impression. Regarding the hard time on finding someone at reception, we can only assume you were trying to reach us in the evening. Our reception closes at night but the team is still reachable 24 hours if pressing the doorbell. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations this time and can only hope to show you our best service on a future occasion. Warm regards from Madeira! Luísa
