A small but very pleasant hotel . Rooms clean and spacious. The hotel is close to beach, shops and restaurants. Personal nice, breakfast too . Nothing to complaints /maybe pool/. But otherwise a great choice.

We have just spent a week in the White Waters Hotel. It is a small hotel lacking some of the facilities of the larger hotels but that is reflected in the price. The staff were very attentive and obliging, the food was nice and rooms comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located for the beach, the small village centre and public... More

We arrived in a small group to stay at the hotel for a week. Very good first impression, with friendly staff, nice and clean everywhere. Some hard mattresses. Cold in the room, and we got a heater for 4 days. No air conditioning. Poor water pressure in the shower. They had underground parking, but the descent was very cramped. Internet... More

The manager and staff were excellent, pleasant, helpful and considerate. Well worth another visit. I was concerned about the noise levels from the nearby airport, but found that there was not a problem. The hotel is shielded from the airport by a hill and only if the aircraft are taking off over the bay (which is rare) is there any... More

This was my second stay at WhiteWaters. Again I was very content with the staff and facilities. The owners are involved in the day-to-day business of the hotel; they quickly respond to problems . The staff are cheerful and very competent. This visit I discovered that the cook Fatima had a special talent for cooking fish! Breakfast was very much... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quiet break in this 3 star hotel in a lovely location in Machico. The hotel, although classed as 3 star, provides a 5 star service of to its clients. It is spotlessly clean and well managed. The owners and staff treat you as part of the family in a very relaxed atmosphere. The food... More

Having chosen White water due to the favourable reviews here on Trip-advisor, I most certainly wasn't disappointed by any aspect of my stay there. The hotel projects itself in a clean, well maintained and cared for manner, this it seems it due to perpetual diligence by the staff and owners. This some may think would lead to a sharp and...

Ive now stayed here four times and havent written a review before. I can only say book early as White Waters is now on the map and has become very popular. The owners are wonderful, everything is as you could wish. Now that Machico has a beach I have been able to swim in December and March.

All I can do is echo what has already been said in previous reviews. That is to say that it is a well situated hotel in a lovely little town that is about Ten minutes from the airport. The staff are very friendly and definitely go that extra mile to please you. There are no tea and coffee making facilities... More
