We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff were excellent - friendly, great service and would do anything to help and more. The views were lovely and in a nice quiet location. Be aware you would need to use taxis, buses or hire a car to get about. We used a taxi with a great guy called Duncan recommended by the hotel, who gave us a tour of the island which was a great day out and for other little run arounds. Also took the local bus into Funchal which was convenient too. A great holiday and we hope that the people who own this hotel value the wonderful staff they have - they really were so hard working and always with a smile. Thank you to them all for making our holiday so enjoyable.
Friendly, clean, wonderful surroundings on the side of a beautiful valley close to the sea.
Top marks for the swimming pool and garden. Free tea coffee and cake all day and an honesty bar that was well stocked. Would certainly return and take friends.

The hotel is really nice, with well equiped rooms and kitchens. The swimming pool is also lovely and free.
Beware, though, that you need a car to stay in this hotel, as it is not close to any city centre. The rating is not 5, having in mind that the internet wasn't free and that it was a little bit hard finding anyone at the reception.

Staff were A1,very helpful,friendly and very good at their job ie making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The restaurant served very good food made from local sourced ingredients, a good wine selection and the portuguese brandy was very very good. My room was in a block of log cabins just off of the main building,very comfortable twin bed jobby,with views of mountains which were often capped by clouds late afternoon, I could see all the way down the valley to the sea some 3 or so miles away. The hotel is situated about central on Madeira and a good base to explore the island.Oh and the breakfast was to die for,you could make it about a 7 course affair if you were in a mind to.
The hotel is charming...the cabanas' style is unique (therefore offers you more privacy then the usual rooms) ...the staff is extremely friendly...the breakfast is various and generous...the food's quality is very good...but nothing is as stunning as the view of the northern coast: spectacular!!! It is the best location for people who like tranquility and peace, who really love the fragrant aromas of the flowers, the vibrant colors of the lush vegetation, the astonishing view of the Ocean...for people who just want to relax somewhere off the beaten track.
THIS IS THE BEST HOTEL WE HAVE STAYED AT ON ALL OUR TRIPS ABROAD. OUR FIRST IMPRESSION WAS WE HAD ARRIVED AT PORTMERRION IN WALES. IT HAD THE SAME LOOK AND FEEL.WHILST IN THE FIRST INSTANCE A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO FIND THE 8KM CLIMB UP THE MOUNTAIN ROAD IS SO WORTH IT AND EASY TO REMEMBER THERE AFTER. A VERY COMFORTABLE ROOM WELL APPOINTED AND SECURE. THE STAFF WERE OF THE TOP ORDER AND COULD NOT DO MORE. A SIMPLE BUT LOVELY TOUCH WAS EVERY DAY THE ROOM WAS CLEANED AND A CHOCOLATE PLACED SOMEWHERE ON THE BED FOR EACH PERSON.THE FOOD IN THE RESTAURANT WAS GOOD WITH TIME AND CARE PLACED ON SERVICE. IF WE HAD ANY IMPROVEMENTS TO ASK FOR THEN WE WOULD REQUEST THE POOL WAS OPENED LATER IN THE EVENING AS WE SPENT ALL DAY OUT AND OFTEN ARRIVED BACK AFTER 7PM WHEN THE POOL WAS CLOSED AND A NICE COOL SWIM WOULD HAVE BEEN GOOD. A GOOD HOTEL FOR COUPLES AND A CAR IS A MUST. WE WOULD WITH OUT DOUBT STAY HERE AGAIN. WELL DONE ALL....
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room, and the hotel as a whole, were very clean and well-furnished. Lovely location as well. We were well satisfied with the overall package, with only one reservation. The food, both at breakfast and dinner, was fairly average.
