Just visited this complex on the north side of the island.
About the accommodation, nothing to really complain about. The furniture was a bit outdated, but nothing to worry about.
The staff was quite a surprise, as everybody had a good experience we expected the same.
I have to say, the little woman Arminda doing everything there was very very nice. Here boss, the manager was very short, en strict. We got a 2 minute introduction because she was very busy with people leaving and coming (strange on a appartmentcomplex of 12). Plus the fact that se had to come from another place ......
Her husband or what he was, did not even bother to say hello while passing, nice man!
About the location, nice view on the sea and the cliff, nothing wrong there !
Then there is the weather, the north of the island is cloudy en colder then the southern side. Looking for sun ? Stay in the south!
The town itself has nothing, one bar, one bakery and a tiny little mini mercado. It's dirty and a lot of houses are empty. So you have to rent a car to go out.
I would not recommend this hotel, but i have to say it seems that a town with absolutely nothing to do is not my cup of tea, while other people love it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the North Coast of Madeira Island, on the lower part with view to the mountain and to the sea. The ancient house now, completely remodelled, invites you for a compulsory stop and for a rest among the vineyards around. It is one of the most ancient Manor Houses from Ponta Delgada. In 1996 it was transformed into four apartments. The main house with 3 T-1 and T-0 (studio). On the ground floor we can find a T-0 and a T-1 with connecting doors being possible this way to accommodate a family. Having direct communication with a leisure area integrated into a small but lovely garden, a rustical wine press and a barbeque. The other two apartments on the main house are located on the upper part of the house and have a balcony, from where a breath taking view either to the mountain and to the sea can be enjoyed. In 2003 the owners decided to built 8 more T1 apartments, swimming pool for adults and for children, a small and very nice bar with esplanade and a bigger car parking ... more less
