I stayed at this Hotel to attend a friend's wedding. My bedroom was clean and comfortably furnished, with a small balcony with table and chairs where you can look out onto the Mountains around. Flat Screen Tv had British News Channels which was a bonus. Staff were always friendly and helpful. Food and service is excellent. The views of the... More

We stopped at Hotel Encumeada for lunch during a drive, so this review is for the restaurant only. We had an amazing meal of steak and meat brochette. It was perfectly cooked, and we sat outside with stunning mountain views! Loved it!

The hotel itself is clean and simple. Staff are helpful but not overly friendly which is fine. Rooms simple and yet linen changed everyday and well cleaned. The scenery is stunning and can be seen in sunshine/cloud/winds. There is a good choice of food in the Evening buffet although meat and fish does not always look appealing but salad bar... More

This must be my 3rd visit to the Hotel Encumeada situated high in the central hills of the island. The hotel has few frills mainly a base used by walking groups and individuals because of the challenging, local terrain. For non-walkers, a car is all but essential. Nowhere on the island is beyond reach. I come here for the overall... More

Our first time in Madeira. What a lovely island. The hotel is quite easy to find, almost dead centre of the island. It is up a winding road (most Madeiran roads are) but the views on the way up are breathtaking. It was pouring with rain and vey misty when we went and we wondered if we had taken the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and didn't expect much for the price we paid but was pleasantly surprised. Room very clean,bed fine, views spectacular & a good base to see the rest of the island & great walks around. Food was ok, a toaster would be good at breakfast though.

This was the second time I've stayed in the Madeira mountains, and this hotel surpasses the other. It has central heating, which is much better than basic electric heaters you might get elsewhere. Some days we switched the radiator off when the weather was warm, other times we were glad it was there! The food was good and the service... More

This place is in a good location for hillwalking, but the entire hotel is unfortunately rather charmless and unwelcoming. The rooms are bare and uncomfortable and need a facelift. Breakfast and dinner are insipid. I did not enjoy the stay.
