We stay there 2 nights (from 13th to 15th of January)with breakfast and dinner. The first night we arrive there we were the only guests, we bought a land view room but we where upgraded to a superior, room in the old house (The best part of the hotel) the dinner was great, fine cousine, but the staff was on the reception talking very loud.
The room had plenty of space, very clean and warm. The breakfast in the fist day, we where still alone and we had a La carte breakfast (not much to choose, just English breakfast, with eggs and bacon). In the second night arrives a big family so the breakfast in the third day was a buffet (much to choose). Since it was our anniversary in the second day the hotel offers us some cookies and Madeira Wine in the room, which we loved. Overall our stay there was better than we expected.

Room Tip: We order a land view room that is very good too, but we where upgraded to a superior room, so for co...

Stayed for one night during our tour of Madeira. The hotel was located on the mountainside overlooking the valley. We traveled via the coastal route to get to the hotel and found some of the roads very scary!!

The photos of the hotel and pool area do make the accommodation and facilities look larger than they actually are. The pool and gardens are quite small but the location is tranquil with tremendous views.

We booked a superior room which was very homely and comfortable. Bathroom small but adequate. High standard of cleanliness and comfort throughout the hotel. During our stay the hotel was very quiet only two other parties staying. We did not eat evening meal at the hotel as it was quite costly but found it difficult to find any good restaurants nearby so should have given the hotel a try. Breakfast was very good and cooked to order. Would return is wanting a peaceful location.

We booked 4 nights but only stayed 3.We warned the hotel to cancel the first night because of the weather (no bus, no phone) and they said no problem.Finally they charged us 4 nights, everyday they said a diffrerent thing. The hotel is very far from the village, you need a transport or paying a taxi which becomes expensive day by day. Breakfast is monotonous and poor.The spa services close at 7.00pm , then if you want to use them, imagine what time you have to arrive there!!! The hotel is very pretentious, internet doesn´t work and the staff is not helpful at all.

Spent a couple of nights here as part of my weeks holiday in Madeira. although in the north i recommend hiring a car and getting about as the roads are very good. i used econony cars and found them both cheap and reliable. from the airport head for Funchal, Riba Brava, Sao Vicente. Just before you reach Sao Vicente look out for signs for the hotel, so just follow your nose. The hotel is very clean and welcoming and it is truly a mountain retreat! We used the car to travel all around the locality and loved the strand at Sao Vicente with its wonderful breakers and hidden pools. Both dinner and breakfast were of an excellent quality, Just remember the best rooms are with the valley view. We had chosen a mountain view room but we were upgraded at no extra cost. everything is laid back here

This is a smashing place. Although Sao Vicente isn't the most exciting place on the island, this hotel is the perfect base to explore the north and central island, more picturesque and serene than the bustling capital of Funchal. This hotel is the equivalent of a very good 4* hotel in the UK without the pricetag. Good clean rooms, friendly, efficient staff, excellent food and good leisure facilities. Problems with drains noted by other visitors were not encountered during our stay. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to all but those who want a wild nightlife. I would however strongly encourage travellers going beyond Funchal to hire their own car .

The hotel is on the valley side on the outskirts of Sao Vicente and it is important to catch the signs as you near the village, and not to take the lower road into the centre. Despite the all year round climate, the north is considered out of season in winter, and the hotel is always quiet in January except on Saturday night. We were never the only guests but one of our seven nights saw us being the only ones at dinner, with very few for most of the other nights. As a result we felt very well served by the fifteen or so staff who were in the hotel during our stay!! The facilities were also completely at our disposal.

The staff were excellent, the half board food was the 22euro table d'hote menu, and was good, though the dessert course was usually uninspiring. Breakfast is a la carte when the hotel is very quiet - with a whole range of options cooked to order. The bar serves snacks and cake through the day.

Our only gripe was a slight smell of drains in the otherwise spotless room. The hotel is clean and the decor has a country house ambience despite being modern.

Road communication with the south of the island is very good.
