Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
8.0 Excellent
Pros: It's a nice hotel that fulfilled our needs as we wanted to be close to the airport. The breakfast buffet was very good as was the pool and bar. It's also a short walk to all of Santa Cruz's restaurants and bars.
Cons: There was really nothing not to like. The evening lighting in the restaurant looked quite bright so we chose not to dine there.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The balconies are very small.
Cons: The staff was very nice and helpful. We got a good breakfast.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Modern hotel, very clean and comfortable room, perfect staff, and very good breakfast. Excellent value overall. We stayed a single day before departing, so we did not explore Santa Cruz itself, but the drive to the beautiful cliffs of Sao Lorenco is only 20-25 minutes. Also, proximity to the airport is an important advantage if you have an easy flight.
Cons: No complaints.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very close to the city center of Santa Cruz and close to the airport by car. The staff is very very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very big. The pool and gym was closed due to corona virus but it seemed also nice. They even provided us breakfast outside of the opening hours because we had to leave earlier. The value for the money is very good and I would recommend to stay there!
Cons: One ned was squeaking. It is located under a bridge and the view from the swimming pool is not that nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Professional staff and service. This really is a 4* hotel that lives up to it's rating. Stylish design, comfy beds and a walk in shower with waterfall head. Like a boutique hotel back home. There's even a small library plus lots of facilities and places to enjoy the sunshine. The hotel restaurant produces delicious food, all served without you having to wait between courses. A lovely end to my holiday and I will certainly return!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at 2 a.m. due to a very long flight delay. The staff member who checked us in was exceptional. Although we had to leave in the morning we were offered a delayed check out in consideration of our late check in. The breakfast was very good. All the staff we encountered were excellent. This is a hotel that if we had planned our trip differently we could have and would have stayed for more than a few days.
Cons: Nothing

Cons: The A/C was not working. Everything else was superb!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location and the swimming pools were fantastic. Access to the ocean is a nice touch and the view as well. The staff are professional and cater for every need. Lots of fresh fruit with amazing taste. It is nice that the hotel is smaller and not crowded. We loved the experience and would come again.
Cons: Sometimes one can hear the traffic from the motorway. But it is not too bad.
6.0 Good
Pros: Beautiful room and setting. Excellent extras in room: fruit, good coffee. Excellent breakfast
Cons: Evening meal was overpriced and pretentious with disappointing options. The waiter had a loud conversation with the people at the next table throughout dinner. Sea pool was a stunning setting but neglected and grubby. Noise from builders during the day and other guests at night. Overpriced.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. The hotel is in a great position overlooking the sea. It's very close to the airport but this is not a problem as you can't hear anything from the airport and it is very convenient on arrival. The staff are fantastic very helpful and friendly. Food is excellent and prices are good. It was my wife birthday during our stay and they decorated the room and supplied a complementary bottle of local champagne.
Cons: Nothing the hotel is perfect

Pros: All is great and in line with 5 star experience. Very close to the airport - you can drive 2 min to spot landings, but plains don’t disturb at all (I am super sensitive to noice) Nice area, with pool, tennis courts and natural pools (should be fantastic experience during the warm months) Great restaurant for dinner and breakfasts
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I sincerely believe we could not have chosen an accommodation that would suit our needs better. We enjoyed that it is away from the congestion of downtown. We hiked the levadas and climbed the mountains, and found our time in Funchal to be less enjoyable due to the crowds. Our room was spacious with an excellent bed and bathroom. The staff were exceptional. We ate at the hotel most dinners because the food was excellent. Our server, Fabrizio, treated us as honored guests and friends; very personable. The grounds are beautiful and, despite being near the airport, were quiet and secure. We rented a car and enjoyed ample and secure parking.
Cons: Can't think of anything.

Pros: Cleen, close to airport.

Pros: I just loved everything about it , Uber ride away from Funchal , or the hotel would take you to the Airport and you could get a bus , the pools were lovely in the hotel , wish we had stayed longer
Cons: Nothing
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Pools were amazing, staff beyond amazing. It was a last minute stay due to a cancelled flight but definitively a very pleasant surprise !
Cons: Walkable from the airport but a rather unpleasant walk !
9.7 Excellent
Pros: What a view! Though the airport and the expressway are near, you are down the cliff and don't hear them much. All rooms face the ocean and have a view of the desert islands cliffs. The nice tile floors and furnishings evoke "classy beach house." The service is outstanding at the front desk and in the peaceful, lovely restaurant.

Cons: Once upon the time that was perhaps a nice place to stay
7.9 Good
Pros: The hosts were very accommodating and helpful providing seemless transfer to the airport for us early morning
Cons: The shower had rust in it which could have been replaced.
6.3 Good
Pros: From the two-bed rooms on the first floor you have a fantastic view of the Madeira airport. The staff in the restaurant is very friendly and advises you well.
Cons: I booked the hotel because it was given on booking.com that’s about a kilometer from the airport. The actual distance is about 5 km. You are served at the reception, but you shouldn't expect any thing more. There is neither a 24 hour reception nor an airport shuttle. The decor of the rooms seems to be from the 1960s. The room is illuminated by two bedside lamps and is therefore very dark. The water pressure collapses as soon as another person in the hotel uses the bathroom. Then the shower trickles by itself
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Close to the airport
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property manager was extremely helpful and as two travelers awake for over 30 hours, that was very appreciated. It was quiet, clean, and we slept well.travel
6.3 Good
Pros: close to the airport (30 min walk)
Cons: bathroom not so nice, one glass was dirty. Mosquitos everywhere making all night a very unpleasant experience - obviously an issue at the place as there were few dead ones already "attached" to the wall. I would recommend to install some net on the balcony door as a prevention...
6.0 Good
Pros: People working there are very friendly and offer additional help like a lift to the airport (for additional fee).
Cons: There are not enought windows in the hall so there is not enought fresh air. But in the room there is a balcony to open.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: A lovely peaceful place in a scenic setting with a beautiful garden. Excellent base for exploring levadas and walking. Comfortable rooms and welcoming common areas. Very attentive hosts, always available for requests and helpful suggestions about the area. Generous breakfast and choice at dinner each evening, fresh ingredients and well prepared. I especially appreciated the careful attention to dietary restrictions, they made extra effort to accommodate them. Highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet retreat from the busier coastal areas.
7.9 Good
Pros: the stuf was very friendly. all was very good. the dinner was fantastic. thanks for all
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We spent a really wonderful week in this kind Quinta where the staff was amazingly nice and our room was pretty and flawless. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious, as was our New Year's Eve dinner. The Quinta'a garden and the whole village of Santo António da serra are also pleasant and calm. Thank you for everything.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The garden was well tended. The Quinta and the apartments upstairs were very clean. Nice place to stay. It is very quiet. But I guess you also need a car to get there. They also made it possible to check in at 2 am. Thanks again!
Cons: Breakfast was very basic and the breakfast room inside wasn’t that nice. I guess it is more beautiful if you can sit outside. The room was very clean but it did not look as fancy as it did on the pictures.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Nice service. Staff are not intrusive. My flight was diverted to Porto Santo before coming back to Madeira Airport. Carla was very gracious and ensured I was checked-in and had some food, even though it was quite late in the night. Clean and tidy place. The cleaners are friendly. The cook is very good and I recommend the three-course dinner at €22 - it is worth it as local, organic produce is used. The breakfast was fine and the home-made jams were very good. I don't think I could have the same breakfast for more than three mornings in a row, though. I had a working holiday so the tranquility, nature and simplicity of the place and surroundings was absolutely perfect.
Cons: It would have been nice to be able to sit at a desk to work, but there was not space nor a desk. However, there were good spaces around the house to sit and do work. Relaxing and inspiring spaces. A kettle and iron in the room would have been great. It gets cold in the mountains and the air conditioner/heater blew air that was too drying.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly. The location in super like you were in a bothanic garden. The breakfast was great. Big room with comfy bed.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very accomodating, the meals were excellent, the included breakfast was very good and the view was spectacular.

7.5 Good
Pros: A good enough place to spend one night in between flights.
Cons: The staff didn't reply to my emails in time before my trip. On leaving, the receptionnist refused to call a taxi for us saying we could walk to a taxi rank 200m away. We were woken at 2a.m. by someone knocking at our door, apparently another guest who was lost.
6.7 Good
Pros: The hotel is located in the city center, close to the beach and to the airport. There are great restaurants nearby.
Cons: No opportunity to pay by credit card, it was hard to pay in cash too. Very noisy, in one night there are 5 planes landing next to it, and you also hear everything from the other rooms and from the corridor, because of the paper-thin walls. Loads of tourists arrive at night so it's almost impossible to sleep during all night.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location, clean.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Close to the airport, nice little town with good restaurants. For the cheap price, the accomodation was okay tough
Cons: Very noisy. Could hear snorring, bathroom sounds and toilet flushs fron my neighbours all night. I don't watch tv on holiday, but if i would have wanted, there wasn't a remote control
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very good value for your money, this cozy hotel is right in town, we enjoyed being able to have dinner and a couple of drinks and walking back to the hotel in a couple of minutes. Very friendly staff who made us feel welcome right away. We had only booked.one night but decided to stay one extra night before our flight.santa Cruz is a lovely little town only 5 minutes drive from the airport.Obrigada!!!
Cons: an extra bar of soap in the bathroom would be nice.

Pros: It was spotless clean. Staff were very friendly and welcoming I would stay again,

7.0 Good
Pros: The little huts are a lovely and quirky. Very nice inside.
4.2 Okay
Pros: Quite, very nice garden. Good starting point for hikes.
Cons: It is at 700m above sea level and often foggy/rainy - vegetation is jungle like. We rented the stone bungalow with 2 bedrooms which is very dark inside - light switched on all day. The walls were wet and molded - especially in the basement and shower. The smell in the house is respectively. The heating system (warm water) switched off constantly. The internet had to be fixed, as mobile reception was poor we had difficulties to plan our trips (weather forecast). The doors in the house were either difficult to open or could not be closed. The landlord did not provide instructions, e.g we had to call him to learn where to open the gas for the stove, how to switch on the heating system again. We were in comparably priced houses/flats in Madeira and Lisboa that were much better equipped and maintained.

Pros: The staff are amazing and attentive, the location is fantastic and not too far from Funchal so it’s easy to experience a bit more action . Highly recommend
Cons: Luxurious and everything you need with two great restaurants. You have to experience Lordes it’s out of this world .
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was spacious, clean, with a small balcony with a marina view, which was very pleasant. The staff was very nice and helpful. The location was very easy to get to, there are many parking spaces in the facilities. The surrounds were beautiful with a lighthouse and a small church. There are 2 restaurants, but we only ate at the "capitain's bar" because it was super good (everyone muss try the "bolo do caco").
Cons: There is not much to complain, but one thing that could be improved is the breakfast. It could have a little bit more options and better coffee.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great breakfast as well as dinners. Helpful and always friendly staff. Interesting entertainment, for example traditional dance and songs night. Perfect and relaxing ocean view from the room balcony. Parking for free.
Cons: The wifi connection in 5th floor rooms could be stronger.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Excellent choice on the breakfast buffet. Free parking lots right outside the hotel available. Excellent dinner recommendation: The Restaurante Praia Dos Reis Magos (3 min walking distance along the beach). They serve excellent dishes! We went there every single day.
Cons: We had a room with sea view and quite close to the ocean (room no. 024). However, if you leave the window front open, you hear the swell of the sea extremely loud, esp. at night. If you are a light sleeper, definteley a point to consider. The air condition in the room didn’t work properly either, so had to deal with a lot of heat during daytime since the sun shone directly to the room all day long. Impossible to stay in the room during morning hours, the noise level produced by the cleaning ladies moving around chairs, tables and beds in the neighbouring rooms is unbelieveable. In booking.com the room was detailed to have a mini-bar, but actually available was a small, empty refrigerator, connected and put to “full power” not rendering any coolness at all. I also found the huge sink lever (somehow we got a handicapped accessible room) as well as in the shower quite disturbing while doing toiletry and showering. Last but not least, the ugly smell from the bathroom drains and toilet was making our stay even more uncomfortable. No ventilation in the bathroom either. We also expected a better coffee at the breakfast buffet for a 4-star hotel.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great spacious room with a sea view; nice outdoor and indoor swimming pools; good sauna
Cons: The hotel could have more greenery in the corridors, more plants indoors
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast buffet was really great (a pity the coffee was not up to standard). The complimentary bus into Funchal was a real treat and very much appreciated. We really enjoyed the swimming pool!
Cons: The bathroom was dated and the toilet placed in an awkward position right behind the door. The toiletries were from wall mounted dispensers which turned us off and we went out and bought shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The air conditioning appeared not to work.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is situated in a convenient location, close to Funchal. Very pleasant and attractive! It has all the elements of comfort.
Cons: None! It’s all beyond any guest would expect!
6.7 Good
Pros: The hotel is quite nice, reception area and common spaces are lovely. We enjoyed the spa facilities which are free to use.
Cons: Breakfast was mediocre. Our biggest issue was that the air conditioning was broken in the entire hotel, and our thermostat was not working which we tried to tell them the night before the AC broke down. I went to reception to let them know that our AC was broken and was told there was nothing they could do until morning (fair) and was told to open a window (which is really a patio door). I then asked if they had any ear plugs as it was an extremely windy and loud night, to which I was told "this isn't a 5 star." Not a great start. Was also disappointed that you must pay to use the safe, which is absurd to me as it is used to protect your things from the hotel staff coming into the room, so it should not be 10 euros.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was amazing and the staff really helpful! Even after our stay at the hotel we continued eating breakfast there while travelling on Madeira! The staff did a great job and helped us both with recommendations for local restaurants and sights!
Cons: Tiny detail that was annoying: The shower was a bit dirty and the shampoo holder fell down right when we arrived.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel offers anything you can ask for. The location by the sea is amazing, every morning we had breakfast with the most beautiful view! The choice at breakfast is good and varies from day to day. The only thing I was sad to find out was that they took away the juice squeezer on our third day, probably because the thing splashed in all directions when used improperly. A real shame! Our booking included the free use of the spa area with different kinds of sauna. This was a great treat after a day full of sight-seeing or hiking. We also used the pools (they are not connected to the spa though) but the overall temperature was challengingly cold! We also tried to find restaurants close to the hotel but as was to be expected, they are rather touristy. Better go to the center of Caniço to find more authentic, local places. A big thumbs-up goes to the hotel for fantastic room service, very helpful and friendly staff (reception and any kind housekeepers) and their great effort to reduce waste and make good use of energy resources! Whenever we go back to Madeira, this hotel will be our choice again.
Cons: Apart from the juice squeezer that was suddenly gone ( :-D ) there is nothing to complain.

Pros: great selection of breakfast...Location was ok

Pros: Seawater pool and lido; view; peace and quiet (mostly); gym classes; breakfast; cleaning staff; proximity and bus service to Funchal; ecofriendly approach of hotel, adults only.
Cons: Relationship between hotels and facilities is confusing and there were some errors in advertised venues and events. Noisy neighbours on balcony next door; lengthy check in; vagueness of reception staff about options to book transport to airport at end of stay.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole complex is very nice and super clean. Unfortunately they had to close everything except the restaurant and bar because of the corona virus. There was tension in the air. I guess normally it is very beautiful and if you can enjoy all the amenities.
Cons: Even they had to shut down everything by law we had to pay the full price which in my opinion was not accurate. They also could have given uns a free drink or something like that... The standard room is quiet small. And the view was not nice. There was a wall in front of us...

Pros: All is great and in line with 5 star experience. Very close to the airport - you can drive 2 min to spot landings, but plains don’t disturb at all (I am super sensitive to noice) Nice area, with pool, tennis courts and natural pools (should be fantastic experience during the warm months) Great restaurant for dinner and breakfasts
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I sincerely believe we could not have chosen an accommodation that would suit our needs better. We enjoyed that it is away from the congestion of downtown. We hiked the levadas and climbed the mountains, and found our time in Funchal to be less enjoyable due to the crowds. Our room was spacious with an excellent bed and bathroom. The staff were exceptional. We ate at the hotel most dinners because the food was excellent. Our server, Fabrizio, treated us as honored guests and friends; very personable. The grounds are beautiful and, despite being near the airport, were quiet and secure. We rented a car and enjoyed ample and secure parking.
Cons: Can't think of anything.

Pros: Pools were amazing, staff beyond amazing. It was a last minute stay due to a cancelled flight but definitively a very pleasant surprise !
Cons: Walkable from the airport but a rather unpleasant walk !
9.7 Excellent
Pros: What a view! Though the airport and the expressway are near, you are down the cliff and don't hear them much. All rooms face the ocean and have a view of the desert islands cliffs. The nice tile floors and furnishings evoke "classy beach house." The service is outstanding at the front desk and in the peaceful, lovely restaurant.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Modern hotel, very clean and comfortable room, perfect staff, and very good breakfast. Excellent value overall. We stayed a single day before departing, so we did not explore Santa Cruz itself, but the drive to the beautiful cliffs of Sao Lorenco is only 20-25 minutes. Also, proximity to the airport is an important advantage if you have an easy flight.
Cons: No complaints.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very close to the city center of Santa Cruz and close to the airport by car. The staff is very very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very big. The pool and gym was closed due to corona virus but it seemed also nice. They even provided us breakfast outside of the opening hours because we had to leave earlier. The value for the money is very good and I would recommend to stay there!
Cons: One ned was squeaking. It is located under a bridge and the view from the swimming pool is not that nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Professional staff and service. This really is a 4* hotel that lives up to it's rating. Stylish design, comfy beds and a walk in shower with waterfall head. Like a boutique hotel back home. There's even a small library plus lots of facilities and places to enjoy the sunshine. The hotel restaurant produces delicious food, all served without you having to wait between courses. A lovely end to my holiday and I will certainly return!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at 2 a.m. due to a very long flight delay. The staff member who checked us in was exceptional. Although we had to leave in the morning we were offered a delayed check out in consideration of our late check in. The breakfast was very good. All the staff we encountered were excellent. This is a hotel that if we had planned our trip differently we could have and would have stayed for more than a few days.
Cons: Nothing
