Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Lovely with some pros and some cons
The Palheiro Village is a group of apartments/villas connected to the golf court. Pros - Nice option to share an apartment with friends/family instead of separate hotel rooms - Clean and tidy - Very quiet - this is not a party place (a con for some) - Amazing if you like golfing as you’re right on the golf court - Breakfast/lunch/dinner options in affiliated Palheiro Hotel which is situated at the top of the hill in a lush and quiet garden - Wonderful sea view from pretty much all apartments/villas I believe - Free and easy parking right next to apartment - Staff all very friendly and helpful - Funchal town with its restaurant etc is only an 8 min drive away Cons - Colder climate than by the coast (a pro for some) - You need a car to get to the pool, communal areas, reception and breakfast/lunch/dinner restaurant. It’s up a very steep hill and a pretty challenging walk even for a fit young person - It’s labelled “luxury” but the decor and general interior is very dated. - Sea view - but if you’re on the bottom of the village like we were there’s a big road right in front. Probably nicer to be higher up the hill. All in all we had a nice time, but next time I would personally probably opt for the Palheiro Hotel up the hill if I was looking for something quiet - or one of the Funchal town hotels for something more happening. But great option for a family.
