“Nice and clean hotel, great location, good food and great staff”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Excellent location in Madeira (very nice and peaceful village, 20 minutes by car from Funchal, close to most famous hiking trails), best place for intermediate level surfing on the island (sandy beach next door, Machico spot within 10 minutes drive), excellent cocktails, and good food, you can even ask ahead for special meals. If you want to escape the other hotels/ tourist resorts from the island, this is the place to be, and the whole staff (Belmiro, Rodolpho, Paula and all) surely know how to care of their hosts. Felt really like home, will be back.

Number one place if you want to learn surfing on Madeira. Vila Bela is located directly at the sea and next to the surf spots (3min walk). Very relaxing and friendly atmosphere! And great food! (you have to try the lemon cake)

This hotel just opened its doors this year in June. It has the perfect area, because is right next to the center of the town, beach and swimming pool. You can make a lot of things (there are good options to take a walk, dive from a cliff, surf) with great people that are working there. We traveled all around the Madeira island and the best place i found was there. Specially because the people there are great and its a town with everything that somebody needs for vacations.
