Excellent place to stay, the staff are very friendly and polite, the hotel is clean and simple, there is no noise, there are even animations after dinner which you can go to have a good time, in addition you can still catch the bus and go to the city center and see the small and rustic Vila Baleira.

Vila Baleira Resort is located on the Western side of Porto Santo and we’ve enjoyed our all inclusive formula. The island isn’t huge but it would have been time consuming to eat out every day without a rental. A highly enthusiastic animation team (archery, volleyball ect)will keep you busy – even so the hotel was not full at the time....

Good rooms, friendly staff, great weather (in April), good food... The value for money is definitely good! Porto Santo is a small island... I would recommend 4-6 nights in Porto Santo then a couple of days in cosmopolitan Funchal

We were here one week enjoying the all inclusive package wich we were satisfied with. Nice hotel, good rooms, very friendly and hard working personel in the restaurant and the bar. The island is a hidden pearl. Fantastic beach with lovely sand and clean fresh Atlanticwater, a challenging golfcourse and great walking and biking.

We had a fine week here in the apartment with a sea view. Housekeeping was lacking, actually only came in late in the afternoon, if so. No smiles from personnel apart from two guys in each of the bars. All inclusive concept rendered a noisy dinner hall, with 1-2 of 4 coffee machines constantly broken. Nobody seemed to bother repairing...

My wife and I visited this lovely island with a vennepar. The stay was very satisfactory and we enjoyed our acquired "all inclusive". Very interesting food with super service. Fine cleaning and in general a functioning hotel. Lovely golf course that we played every day during our week stay.

An excellent hotel with a good position close to the sea and the golf course. Buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner was very good. Hotel rooms perfect. Spa could have been more interesting. The golf course is excellent - challenging, impressive and in good condition.

Loved this spa hotel. The room was very nice with a side sea view, very clean and modern, and the staff were accommodating. The room didn't have a kettle or microwave, but it was not really needed as I took an all inclusive package for 2 nights. The food was excellent and buffets extremely varied and plentiful.
