Porto Moniz very quiet and very relaxed.
Aqua Natura exceeded expectations.
No night life - we enjoyed the absence of that.
Few children - we enjoyed that too
Locals and tourists well behaved
Miles from anywhere and we enjoyed that too.
Drivers should have nerves of steel and not be subject to vertigo.
Thoroughly recommended for 'older' holiday makers looking for relaxation and no problems.
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.

This small hotel is on the North of the Madeira which is much quieter and unspoiled than the Funchal side. It is in a wonderful location with stunning views of the mountains and sea and as it is a bit cooler after dark the staff light a real fire which was very romantic.
One downside is its a bit out of the way so you do need to hire a car if you want to stay here.
Beautiful gardens and surrounding landscape with majestic trees, plants, flowers and vertical coast line cliffs, from the best that mother nature can give! Just unbelievable beautiful natural landscape.
Pleasant clean hotel in a small village on the north of the island. The rooms and large common areas are spotless. The food is typical of the island. Ideal for a quiet holiday. The only problem we had was the bed was very hard.
From the moment I entered to the hotel with my wife we were received with a warm welcome which is Great customer service and well-mannered staff in general.
The hotel was great in general, the room was comfortable however, could have done with an extra heater.
The scenery was like an artistic frame, calm area and good amenities.
Thank you Cabanas Hotel
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.

An excellent 4 star hotel with good facilities, very clean, lovely pool, very good scenery. Only problem that we found was that it catered too much for the package people with 'entertainment' on every night and heards of people wanting to sit down at the same time for food.
Well away from Funchal, the local town does not have any restaurants so we had to go to Sao Vincent which has a good choice of eating places...but you do need a car.
Would go back again.
