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 :)

The setting, gardens,food, room all the best. Madeira is one of those special places on earth that is still very real. The pride and honesty of the people that live on the island is wonderful to experience. Casa Velha do Palheiro is the icing on the cake. Luis Emanuel is a class act. His crew is well versed and trained in their trade. Next time you're thinking Portugal just head south to Madeira for a true adventure.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

We found Casa Velha a very comfortable hotel with friendly and efficient staff. The food is very good, without being outstanding. The lounge is a light and very comfortable room and the new spa facility provides an alternative location should the weather be less than ideal. However, the outstanding feature is the location set between a very picturesque golf course and a wonderful garden

Dear Peter,
We are delighted that you found Palheiro Estate a great setting. We are also excited about our new spa which is a great addition to the facilities. This year we are celebrating our 20th year at Palheiro Golf and we have some great competitions that you may like to enter if you return before March 2014.

This small and comfortable hotel with a spa, indoor and outdoor pools was a happy find. The staff are efficient and extremely helpful and the food was mostly very good. The gorgeous gardens were surrounded by a beautiful golf course with views out to the Atlantic, so just walking about the grounds gave plenty of exercise even for non-golfers. With the exception of one day the weather was not as warm as we had hoped (but in the UK it was snowing!) It was rather pricey but money well spent and we were very satisfied with our week's stay.

Room Tip: Aim for rooms facing the lawn

The hotel is in a very quiet area above Funchal and the rooms are very nicely decorated with
period furniture. The position against the golf course is superb and has a tea-room at the bottom of the wonderful garden. The breakfast and dinner were excellent and the extremely friendly staff just made for a perfect holiday. We will definitely be visiting again next January.

Room Tip: We were in the garden rooms and had french windows overlooking the golf course.
