I felt there were pros and cons to the Vila Teresinha Guest House. Regarding the pros, the rooms were inexpensive, clean, a decent size, and the hotel is in walking distance to shops and restaurants, though not on the side of town that is closest to the more charming old town. Regarding the negatives: The wife of the man who... More

Had a lovely stay here back in February, everything about this place including the situation and the owner are fantastic. Would highly recommend! The terrorist is lovely to sit out for a drink of an evening as the views across to the Harbour are great. Breakfast was just enough to keep you going till lunchtime, most of it is home-made...

I was travelling on my own and I had day tours and trips planned, therefore would be out for a good part of the day. The Teresinha guest house is an ideal accommodation to setup base. 10-12 mins walk to Av. Do Mar/Promenade. There is a big modern shopping Center along the way which has cafes and a good supermarket... More

Friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful hosts. The room was a good standard for the price paid and the housekeeping was excellent. Good location, close to the centre of Funchal. It has a nice terrace, with views towards the port. Guests can use the shared fridge and microwave oven.

We originally booked rooms with balcony and sea view but were advised these were not available and were offered instead rooms on first floor that opened onto the shared terrace. This was perfect for us and we often had the area to ourselves. Rooms were... More

I visited to know the space . I received unpleasant and with bad manners . I gave up before booking. I do not advise this place to stay even one night. look somewhere else around. Service and friendliness does not exist in this place.

I must confess we only booked this because the place we stayed last year was full, but what an excellent choice it was. It's everything you could want of this type of accommodation - clean, airy, light, 7-8 mins walk from the sea front, and just astonishingly good value.
