We stayed 4 days at the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food excellent and the quality/price value super. We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was nice and clean, the beds very good. We played golf - the staff organized that we were picked up by golf buggy and driven to the clubhouse. The course is spectacular with very nice views. We will certainly come back to this beautiful hotel with the lovely garden and atmospere. Thank you all the staff!

I booked this hotel as it was advertised as adults only. Every night of a 10 night stay from my room i heard babies screeming and crying. The walls are paper thin . There seemed like elephants in the room above the bumping and banging was shocking you even hear your neighbour on the toilet. The garden view was a 12ft ivy hedge 6ft from the patio door. I had expected better for a 10 night stay. The only positive i can say is the housekeepers deserve a medal flawless. Oh and in these covid times this hotel does not offer travellers covid tests. The biggest design fault of this hotel is the electronic key card doors which have to be banged to close. . I loved madeira but cant say the same about this hotel.

3 nights before we flew back home we ending our fantastic 2 week trip to Madeira at this beautiful period style hotel ,with lovely gardens surrounding the hotel. The staff were amazing especially the manageress she seemed to be everywhere ? Running the reception , taking drink orders, and even serving food . When I asked about playing golf she automatically phoned the golf club and arranged everything for the next day just so helpful . The food was the best we had on the island totally 10 out of 10 you can also use the spa too that had a very nice indoor pool and my girlfriend had a really good massage .on the second day I was picked up by golf buggy and taken over to one of the most spectacular golf course I have ever played 27 holes of golf from the plateau top we played down through the clouds into the sun shine to the bottom then back up to the top ?? Totally amazing experience we he booked to go back in January with friends 👍👍😉
