It was easy to be a guest at Casa Velha. Everybody is very friendly and seems to be speak several languages. A nice man was waiting for us at the airport and took us to the hotel. The hotel has peaceful and lovely surroundings with lots of flowers. We got a large room, with a large bed and a large bathroom - very nice when you are going to stay for a whole week. The room was cleaned every day, there was always a fresh flower in a little vase and the maid even came and made the bed ready for the night.The hotel has a very good kitchen - we ate so much good food. At breakfast they have the most amazing homemade banana & kiwi jam....mmmm... and all the fruit is local. I ate the largest grapes I have ever seen - crunchy and very tasteful. The menu was in Portugese, French, German and English - so when you order dinner, you know what you get :) The golf course is challenging and gives a good exercise when walking. The clubhouse also has very friendly personell and serves very good food - it`s not so expensive there either. From the golfcourse and the clubhouse you have a magnificent view. The hotel offers free shuttle to Funchal twice a day - and they also offers shuttle to the clubhouse each hour of the day. However, the clubhouse is just a 10 minutes walk away along the golf course. We also tried the Spa - very relaxing surroundings and a nice massage. All together, we had a very pleasant stay at Casa Velha :)
