This hotel is very near to the airport (10 min walk) but some distance outside of Funchal. So transportation is actually excellent - I took the bus to/from Funchal/Airport and rented a car for one day. It was off season, so not many guests but the staff was super friendly and helpful and the other guests were also that way. There really isn't a beach at the hotel - but a place you can walk down and get into the ocean. There isn't really a good beach anywhere on Madeira, so not much of an issue about that. The included breakfast was superior and the restaurant for other meals was superb. All in all a great stay!
Modern, clean, friendly.
The Continental Breakfast pretty good for a small hotel.
I ordered the Full English but was a bit disappointed with the fact that the sausages were actually those tinned hot-dog sausages. Not the greasy spoon heart attack food I was hoping for.
I have stayed here twice. It is in the centre of "town"
The walks and scenery are excellent around Machico, but that is the case all over Madeira.
It has an imported sandy beach.

I have chosen this guest house because of nearby location to Pico de Areiro which is better to visit in early morning hours before the clouds form.
You can definitely expect quietness and plenty of shade in the garden. It's ideal if you want rest and do nothing silence.
There is also a parking space available, but I can imagine it can get crowded in full season.
Room was small but clean and there is a room service daily (apart from Sunday). Usually there was no one present at reception if you needed anything else. You also cannot count on getting breakfast or anything. There is kitchen with fridge available if you need to store something. However if you wanted to cook your own food you'd have to discuss it with someone, if they ever spoken English and were available. All you get is a telephone number.
Out of season I would try booking for minimum period first and then if you like extend on site which will be better value for money.
