Garajau is famous its Natural Reserve made to protect a very privileged area of Madeira's coast, in an effort to make it work as an ecological nursery. This is the only exclusive marine reserve in the entire Portugal and It is a location for snorkeling and scuba-diving.Facilities are included such as an Indoor heated pool with sliding roof, apart from two outdoor pools and Children's Pool and also a sports court. Dom Pedro Garajau is setting half way between Funchal and Canico ideal to visit the island. All of this makes it the perfect base for exploring the island or enjoying an action-packed holiday.

Firstly, this was not the location we wanted, but was selected in error, and Love Holidays refused to change the hotel despite it being part of the same Dom Pedro chain. This is not a hotel in the true sense of the word, but a reception area interconnected to several blocks of

I've got travel agency transfer, but I am pretty sure that you can get public transport to Funchal and from Funchal there is direct bus to Garajau (ca. 15 min ride). Ask tourist information at the airport.

How far is a beach from this hotel?
There is a beach, down a steep hill, you get almost half way down and there is a replica statue of Christ, (like Brazils) with a viewing platform.Then cablecar to beach - no sand.

"Avoid staying close to the reception hall"
"Avoid if you have mobility issues."
"Choose sea view for a good room view OR garden and top floor for a quieter location away from the evening entertainment."
"choose sea view room"
"Ask for one overlooking the rear gardens because some of the ones at the side only have a limited view of the sea."
$42 - $94 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
