The hotel is a nice place to stay. The people at the reception and in the restaurant are very helpful and friendly and the service was always good. The rooms are clean and comfortable. In the hotel, they had a delicious buffet for breakfast, which differed each morning. In the evening, there was a three course menu in which you could choose your main dish. The food was tasty. The hotel is located a few hundred meters from Santa Cruz, where you can find a couple restaurants and bars. We enjoyed our stay and we would defenitly recommend this place.

Modern hotel just a few minutes’ walk from the cute village of Santa Cruz. It’s quite a functional space without much character, but fine for an overnight stop. Although my room was clean, it felt like it hadn’t been used for quite some time (dead flies on the floor). There was a fridge, and they gave me a kettle on request. Wifi was good. The hotel has a pool area (which I didn’t use) and a gym (which is just a cheap treadmill and cross trainer). Because the hotel was quiet when I visited, the restaurant was only open for breakfast (which was fairly decent). They also own a restaurant in the village to which they were enticing guests with a 10% off voucher. Santo Cruz has a few food offerings, but I chose to eat at the hotel’s place. It was ok.

We booked a short trip to Madeira and stayed in the Solar Bom Jesus. Due to the current climate there was only a handful of other guests in the hotel and we had the pool to ourselves for the duration. The hotel was very clean and modern and cannot fault this at all. Staff at reception very friendly and hotel adheres to all Covid rules Room was lovely and very spacious as well as the bathroom. WiFi available and was very good. Breakfast was a choice of cold meats, cereals, pastries, yoghurts and a small section of hot foods such as eggs, bacon and sausage. Pool area was a good size and lovely views. Santa Cruz itself is a lovely small town with a handful of restaurants. The hotel has a restaurant in the town and guests get a 10% discount. Really recommended this as the meals we had were lovely and even without the discount it was a good price We often got the bus into Funchal which was very handy. The bus stop is not far from the hotel and runs every 30 mins. For the two of us it cost €5.50 each trip which is very fair. All in all we loved our stay and cannot fault the hotel at all. Would definitely recommend and return.

The hotel is spotless and maintained to a very high standard. The rooms were very comfortable and clean with immaculate soft furnishings and linen. Before arrival the hotel was very responsive to questions and offered requests for our arrival. our room was 309 and it is by far stunning walking out onto the pool area. (see pics) During our stay the hotel were very covid safe....with sanitizer on arrival and eeparting, mask to be worn around the public areas, gloves and sanitizer in the breakfast room and not just their staff are checking guests are implementing the rules. Our room was changed daily with clean linen and towels. Truly can not fault the hotel. Staff are welcoming everytime you walk through and happy to assit in any way. we had a late flight 8:30pm and check out was 12pm on request for a late check out they were only to happy to help and didnt charge keeping our room till 6pm. Location is great and only 5mins max from airport but within reach of all the nearby places to visit. The hotel restaurant in tge old town only mins walk away again lovely food and discount card for guests not that its expensive anyway. All in all a fantastic find and we will return hopefully in october for Nother short break Covid dependant. Thank you to all x
