This is a friendly restaurant. I had a delicious fish meal with unusual passion fruit and banana dressing, sounds weird , tastes great. Reasonable prices, generous portions. The location is central and the owner didn't bat an eyelid when we came back dripping in a downpour for a coffee. Another sea front cafe had turned their noses up at us.

Excellent location with beautiful views on the bay and the ocean. Located just behind the Dom Pedro but I think my room (number 2) was bigger and better: big bathroom with tiles, balcony with terrace, and wooden floor. It's pretty basic so you'll have to take your travel kettle and hairdryer and there is no aircon or fridge but I...

Very friendly and helpful owner and staff and lovely food - fish (espada) and steak were especially good. Breakfasts were excellent with ham, cheese,bread, yoghurt, eggs if requested, orange juice...

We stayed for one week at Residencial Familia, booked through Booking.com. We were given room no 8, absolutely lovely views over the bay from the balcony. This was obviously the best room in the place. The owner (Antonio) is very keen to provide good value accommodation which this certainly is. We do not know about the other rooms. Machico is...

We have just come back from spending a wonderful week in Machico made all the better by staying at Residencial Familia. A comfortable, clean and friendly place to stay. The breakfasts are an easy way to spend an hour, eating fresh bread and rolls, ham, cheese, fruit, yogurts and copious amounts of steaming hot coffee and tea. The Madeira cake...

We've just come back from two weeks here. It's located 10 minutes by car from the airport (but there's no noise from planes), five minutes from the sandy beach in Machico, three minutes from the Anthia diving centre, and two minutes from the via rapida, which leads you to the rest of Madeira. Clean rooms, good food in the adjoining...

We stayed in residencia familial on our first night in Madeira. It was an easy 8 euro taxi from the airport and a good base for the walk to Baia D abra, as the bus station is only a few minutes walk into town. Comfortable and welcoming, the room had everything we needed, and a good view of the bay....
