We were coming from Funchal where the hotels are slightly cheaper. We have realized that everything in the island was a bit overpriced so, comparing with other offers around Porto Santo, this hotel wins! They permitted luggage before our check-in, keeping them inside their own office. It's a very nice and simple place, with wide corridors and a lot of... More

A bit overpriced for what you get. Beds are really hard. Hotel would deserve an upgrade. One of the worst sleep there during our stay in Madeira. Staff was really helpful even though not all of them spoke English well. Cheap lunches and Dinners at the hotel restaurant. Nothing special, just normal local food. Wifi was availible at the reception... More

The Areia Dourada is very clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating. It is a short walk to the beach but a little further from city center. It is a very basic accommodation. Our room had 2 twin beds so we had to reserve another room for our 2 kids. Wifi is available in the common area.

Stayed in this lovely hotel for just one night. Could not be more impressed than I was. Friendly staff, very clean, comfortable beds. We also tried the restaurant Barbecue and the food was good and fresh. The location was quite good and it is within a short walk from Vila Baleira and close to the beach. The hotel also offers...

Cheap, clean and comfortable! Staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast was simple but good. Would stay again! Perfect for short stays and walking distance to the city centre (15min walk or 7€ taxi drive)

We stayed at this hotel 3 days. Very cheap accomodation and very good service. Staff was kind. Our room very comfortable, spacious and modern with air conditionning. Breakfast very good too for all tastes. We tried the restaurant of the hotel too. We recommend local espetada there. Last and not least is very near the beach.

I decided to book a room on this hotel based on other reviews and on the price; I can say that I don't regret it. Don't let yourself be influenced by the fact that this is a 2 star hotel! To me it's 3 stars and it's certainly better and cheaper than some of the hotels on the town centre.... More

Good hotel, a bit far from the harbour (but the hotel provided us with a transfer for a reasonable price). Nice, clean rooms with airconditioning. Breakfast is a bit simple. Location is excellent, near the main town and close to the nice beaches.

Regarding prices, I thought it was very reasonable, the check-in is very time consuming, not to mention the keys to enter your room barely worked! The beds were very comfortable, the curtains are very see through, which do not cover much sunlight in the morning! Now if i recommend, i do recommend it because for the price it is, the... More

I really, really wanted to give this place five stars because it was so good, but have to give it 4. i'll dwell on the many positives first... Great location in the heart of the community and near the beach. One of the cleanest places we've ever stayed in (you could eat your tea off the floor it was that... More
