Brilliant staff, location. Quiet small town setting overlooking the pool and sea. The only noise was from the occasional aircraft landing and taking off - 5 minutes from the airport. Wonderfully calm atmosphere - staff could not be anymore attentive and caring. Fabulous breakfast choices and an equally impressive and cheap evening meal choice. Plan to go again.
Extended our holiday by staying for 3 nights here. The location and setting were excellent. Take time to explore the orchard, it was wonderful. The breakfasts catered for every possible taste and the only meal we ate in was excellent.
I only went over to Madeira for the equivalent of a long weekend, so I didn't plan to do much - just relax in the hotel and its grounds. For a short stay like this is absolutely perfect because you can really unwind - walk around the garden, smelling the flowers and looking at all the unusual trees and plants. Then there is the pool of course, which I didn't find so cold - if you ease yourself in, bit by bit! Then there are the beautiful views and the just fantastic spa, which is lovely and treatments very good. I liked that you are offered a choice of tea after your treatment and you then get to drink it reclining on a lounger out on their terrace overlooking the ocean! Just having a little apartment with the garden just outside, and a little terrace in front of it was lovely. I travelled alone but you feel totally safe there and it has everything you need. Canico too is a great little place with a good supermarket, pharmacy, bakery (next door), bank machines etc. The staff are really, really helpful and will provide any assistance or anything you need very promptly. Lots of cats wander about, particularly in the outside restaurant, but they are no bother unless you care to feed them (which is what they want!). They will suddenly appear and then disappear but are friendly.

Holiday plans were to spend sometime relaxing and enjoy the sun and the rest walking the levadas.
Hotel was a great base to do that.

Lido area on sea front an easy 5 minute walk downhill. Very close to supermarket and good choice of restaurants.
Staff we always polite and front desk very happy to help us plan our trips - mostly using local buses - out and about in the island.

Lovely pools, particularly the indoor outdoor.

Wide variety of hotel restaurants.
Lovely accommodating staff.
