2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The Saccharum Resort is located in Calheta in the west coast of Madeira, next to the Marina and sandy beach, sitting proudly between the impressive mountains and the dazzling ocean. Built on the same site where an old sugar cane mill once stood, the hotel adopted the local sugar cane heritage as part of its interior decorative theme. Bedrooms: All 243 rooms and suites (some with Kitchenette) generously-sized rooms, Suites and Junior Suites have a private balcony, the majority of which overlook the sea and are modernly decorated to a luxurious standard. Facilities: The facilities here are upscale and incorporate a luxurious spa offering a wide variety of indulging spa treatments, an indoor pool and gym. Further additions include a second indoor pool, three outdoor swimming pools (1 children's splash pool), as well as a games room with squash court and also a Kids Club. Three restaurants (Buffet & à La Carte) and 4 bars, one featuring live music, make up the elegant eating and drinking options, together with a barbecue terrace allowing al fresco dining with superb ocean views. Free wi-if throughout the hotel and private transportation to Funchal city.

We stayed at the Saccharum for 10 days over the holiday break. We are very happy we chose Saccharum over other hotels because it is truly a beautiful and modern hotel. We stayed in a premium room facing the ocean and very much enjoyed sitting outside on our balcony enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures. The bed and linens were 5-stars and we slept like babies. We also greatly appreciated the little touches that were always left in our room and looked forward to returning "home" at the end of each busy day touring. We didn't use all of the facilities but the several treatments at The Spa were the best we have ever experienced. Everyone was professional, friendly and polite and we will always treasure the memories we made. At the risk of sounding snobbish, we always choose 5-star hotels and resorts for the simple reason we don't want to be disappointed on our vacation. Well, Saccharum is definitely 5 stars to us and we have no hesitation in giving it our solid recommendation. If you are looking for a place to stay in Madeira, look no further than the Saccharum. We are already making plans for our return!

I had a pleasure to visit Saccharum with my husband in October 2021. Our stay was magnificent and doubtlessly we would love to come back there. The hotel was excellent with beautiful interior design and very tasty cuisine unfolding in front of you a great choice- there are multiple restaurants at the hotel and you have as well option use buffet dinner, each day there was a different theme. Not to mention breakfasts which were absolutely affluent with gorgeous ocean view. The staff were very kind and emphatetic- here special greetings to Mr Pereira. The location of the hotel itself is perfect for the calm and relaxed stay- it is in a place where ocean meets the mountain, so as well from the energetical point of view it is entirely harmonizing. There are yoga and tai chi lessons available at the hotel - then you have possibility to practice on the 8th floor terrace with 270 degrees ocean view - absolutely breathtaking. We had the room with ocean view and we could enjoy listining to the ocean sound nights and days. I recommend this hotel with my whole heart, I feel blessed it became part of my memories.

Without a doubt the friendliest, best located, most comfortable, best value, best serviced hotel on the island. Saccharum offers premium sea front room which includes membership of an executive lounge in which the few premium guests are served breakfast and afternoon tea on a balcony/lounge with fantastic views, with inclusive drinks and dry snacks throughout the day too. Definitely worthwhile paying for this extra- which also includes free parking and full free entry to the spa. the hotel offers a free bus too/from funchal and various activities such as aqua aerobics, tai chi, yoga and pilates. the infinity pool is a dream. I swam in it last week as the sun rose and set... it was as lovely in january as it was on our previous visit last september. if you can bear to leave the hotel, and its fine dining and good food restauraunts, the area surrounding the hotel is a delight- the marina with its cafe, bars, and sporting facilities and boat rides; then a little further afield, the walking in the mountains and levadas is an easy 20 minute drive from the hotel. rooms are wonderful- spacious and so many " extras- sunhats, sunscreen, in room daily delicatessan, premium toiletries, minibar(soft drinks included in room price) etc. Views from balcony of sunset over the sea are stunning, staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. special mention for jessica our room manager, and Mariela- the smiliest loveliest club hostess. we cant wait for our next visit.. later this year

I was treated like a king! The staff is very friendly and attentive, I have never seen an angry or annoyed face during my entire stay; everyone was always greeting me with a smile. The breakfast buffet is amazing, wide variety of choices and everything is super fresh! There was even a cook who could make you a fresh omelette which was very nice. In the evening there is a dinner buffet which changes daily so you won’t get bored with the same food twice, which is a great thing! The hotel gym was allright but nothing special, the spa was great! Super clean, the condition of the water was checked daily (I saw hotel staff do this with a special PH test). A special thank you for the fly bar staff, very friendly and knowledgeable people. The spa staff was very nice as well! All in all, I had an amazing week at Saccharum; thank you to all the hard working and attentive staff! I will definitely come back in the future.

Try the premium experience, well worth it. Location is perfect, view is awesome, staff are great and our rooms was excellent (we chose a deluxe premium room). Jacuzzi in the spa could have been warmer.
