10/10 Exceptional

excellent value for money
The hotel is small and welcoming. The room décor is a little dated but very clean and comfortable. The dining room is lovely and the food - both breakfast and dinner was excellent. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and we enjoyed our week's stay despite the weather being dull and windy. I can't believe how reasonable their prices are.

Keep this place a secret as we wish to return!
Caring, helpful staff (especially from Goncalo and Sonja but including all staff). Excellent quiet location with good views. Easy walk to the local bus stop for access to Funchal. Fantastic meals.

Chambre tres propres accueil agréable En demi-pension le petit-déjeuner et le dîner sont tres sympa. Léger bemol : la piscine, et certaines installations qui mériterait un petit rajeunissement. Sinon sejour agréable globalement je recommande au rapport qualité prix

Een hotel met een goede prijs/kwaliteit verhouding
kamer is wat outdated, dat kan wel een opknapbeurt gebruiken. Een toiletbril (hout) waar de verf afbladdert. Een wasbak met een scheur. Wel schoon en een mooi balkon met uitzicht op zee. Het ontbijtbuffet is erg uitgebreid met allerlei soorten brood, vleeswaren, kaas, eieren en spek, veel vers fruit, etc! Personeel is gastvrij en vriendelijk. Auto kun je op eigen terrein parkeren. WiFi werkt op de 2e etage niet.
