We loved staying at this place, nestled in the mountains with beautiful views from our balcony. Breakfast was fantastic, especially the eggs and fresh fruit and vegetables. We also really appreciated having coffee and water available all of the time. Solar da Bica was well situated for our hikes and a welcome refuge when we got back. The beds were comfy and the place was very quiet - until the rooster woke up early in the morning, but it was a wonderful way to start the day. We hope to return on our next trip to Madiera!
I spent three nights at Solar da Bica and can just highly recommend this place. It's a small, family-run B&B with 13 rooms in total. Location is a bit remote uphill in the Lameiros Village, a 5 min drive with your car (required!) to Sao Vicente towntown. It's super quiet in a residential area. Nice common area with a fire-wood heated breakfast/ reading room. There is also an indoor pool available to guests and sauna (reservervation required due to Covid). Rooms are nice and large and come with all you need - there is a great view across the valley and there is also a small balcony. Super clean; comfortable bed and recently renovated bathroom with walk-in shower. The best is the breakfast (try the Tomatoe jam! and freshly prepared egg dished). Most is home-made and of great taste! In total just a super nice and relaxed place if you don't need a big hotel with related service offerings. Happy to stay there again when visiting Madeira again!…
This hotels is in the mountains. Amazing view from the room to surroundings. We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and was able from this location to visit the west of the island, Porto Moniz natural swimming pools, Seixal beach with black sand, lava Caves, the lighthouse on the most west point of Madeira, where you can see the amazing sunset view. Also, the staff is very friendly and pleasant, everything is very clean and breakfast contains only the best quality of food. Not a very big selection, but always fresh, and all choices for everyone. There is a pool on site, where you can enjoy 26 degrees of water to swim and relax.
Spend 2 nights in this outstanding hotel. Warm welcome from staff who were extremely helpful and knowledgable about local area. Room was well equipped and very comfortable with the added benefit of a fantastic view over the valley. Breakfast had a good selection and was nicely presented. They have an honesty bar which has an adequate choice of drinks for the evening. They do provide water and hot drinks throughout the day from this same self service area. Hotel benefits from a small indoor swimming pool which is well maintained. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and it is one when we are back in the area we will look to stay at again.
Spend there a night and got nothing but good things to say. Lovely staff who recommended us a good restaurant. Room was really cozy and clean with a great view. There's a pool and sauna. Free coffee/tee and water. Breakfast included fresh products and was really good. If i ever go to Sao Vicente again there are only one hotel for me and that's Solar Da Bico
