Special time up high above Santa Cruz in this hotel lovely hotel

Review by Barracudajon Bournemouth, United Kingdom

3 nights before we flew back home we ending our fantastic 2 week trip to Madeira at this beautiful period style hotel ,with lovely gardens surrounding the hotel. The staff were amazing especially the manageress she seemed to be everywhere ? Running the reception , taking drink orders, and even serving food . When I asked about playing golf she automatically phoned the golf club and arranged everything for the next day just so helpful ...

The food was the best we had on the island totally 10 out of 10 you can also use the spa too that had a very nice indoor pool and my girlfriend had a really good massage .on the second day I was picked up by golf buggy and taken over to one of the most spectacular golf course I have ever played 27 holes of golf from the plateau top we played down through the clouds into the sun shine to the bottom then back up to the top ?? Totally amazing experience we he booked to go back in January with friends 👍👍😉

Quiet and quaint.

Review by haewonu

The hotel makes a great impression, but very dated. Especially the stuff was friendly but very stiff. The menu in the restaurant was ordinary and food was not very well seasoned...

Otherwise ok. During our stay, the weather was wet, misty, and very humid. Our ( ground floor) room was also humid. However, very quiet, a good location for levada walks!

Nice and quiet

Review by Ricardo M Funchal, Portugal

The pillows are very good which allow a good rest. The calm experienced in the hotel invites reading. Good restaurant, good service (efficient and discreet). Fantastic, relaxing and welcoming atmosphere ... without a doubt an experience to repeat.

Second time here, ready to comeback again...

Review by venezuelancouple

We went here for the first time in the end of November... But came here very late at night and couldn't enjoy as much as we wanted this hotel, so we decided to give another try. Is a really small but charming hotel in the middle of Santo da Serra far from the hustle of Funchal, really quiet and peacefull perfect for a getaway...

I believe they don't have more than 20 rooms, in order to that even when is full booked you don't see a lot of people... The pool is indoor and is warmed enough yerterday was 28 degrees... The room is very comfy and big enough the bed really comfortable and big and the pillows are outstanding... About our dinner we didn't have much hungry so we decided to eat the covert and 2 soups, the covert was really nice the olives were a blast of flavor and our expectations became really high starting from there... But the soup really lacked of flavour not even the parmisan cheese worked that out. And it really looked promising, a lot of veggies, pesto and parmisan cheese, what could gone wrong, right? The staff is very attentive and polite. Excellent job there... the breakfast was good as always, a few choices of ham and cheeses a great selection of breads, pastries and fruits... Great to start your day off.. All in all, ready to comeback as soon as we can...
