We stayed three nights and could have stayed much longer. Nice rooms, well kept and very clean. Great food in the restaurant and bar. But what makes this place special is the staff. They are friendly, helpful, motivated, communicative. Really exceptional
Fantastic nature hotel

This hotel is located on the edge of a small town with one of the best views in Madeira. It offers all what’s best: - amazing breakfast - various choices of cold and warm cuts and a lot of fruits - amenities (excellent restaurant, bar, pool, sauna, they can organize both car rental and bus trips) - spacious and very clean room with a comfortable balcony (and the view!) - and the best: very kind and professional hotel team. We will be definitely returning. The location is also great: in a quiet garden, on the edge of a cliff, you can start both hiking and car trips from there.
Excellent hotel, great setting

Reception desk is great. Rooms are clean and spacious. Nice sea view from the balcony. Great cliff walks just start at the vineyard of the hotel. The hotel is like a gem above the wide ocean. Great setting.

Really enjoyed our three-night stay in this hotel. Very comfortable and well-equipped room with great views from the balcony. The staff were particularly friendly and helpful. And they offer some nice complimentary activities such as a garden tour and wine tasting.
Very nice stay with some cons

Pros: Hotel overall is very nice and clean, breakfast was good with varied choice (loved the freshly squeezed orange juice for example), the hotel grounds, views etc. are wonderful. Staff was always very nice and helpful. Room was specious, clean and had a fabulous view. In general, we enjoyed our stay very much, just with some cons mentioned below. Cons: Restaurant I know this should be a separate review for the restaurant establishment but since it was a part of the HB for us I will review it together with the hotel. The restaurant has a fabulous view from the terrace and the pro’s end there... overall experience was rather bad, I do agree with other reviews that considering the quality and taste of the food if I would have to pay the prices from the menu I would be pissed... We spent 7 days in the hotel, considering that each dinner had 3 courses we tried together 21 different meals and only about 5-6 of those were good or tasty. Not only you have this idea of that someone is cheap and wants to spend as little as possible and call a few leaves of salad with cucumber and olive oil a starter (which can be simple and tasty) but there always seemed to be something not good about it, veggies seem dry and leftover from the day before etc. There seem to be a lot of waiters running around but I don’t think they are well organized, sometimes we had to really wait a while after sitting at our table before someone came to collect our order, clean the dishes or brought next course. Anyway, overall experience of the restaurant was really unsatisfactory. We would not recommend having the HB or dining there based on the a'la carte. Bar Very limited choice, with all respect to the lovely ladies from the staff (btw. The same ladies that serve you breakfast are also running the bar in the late evening) ... lack of a professional bartender is a bit disappointing, there were only like 6 cocktails to choose from, anything even as simple and basic for any kind of bar like Old Fashioned, or Whisky Sour was a mystery… Room I understand the idea behind considering the environment etc. but not having air conditioning in the rooms is a huge mistake, especially since the room we stayed in had only one window- the balcony door, having the insect screen does not help since you can't get the air to flow though the room without opening the door to the corridor. Besides if you leave the balcony open you will be bothered by sounds coming from the outside (and I don't mean soothing ocean waves, I mean insects like grasshoppers and cicadas) Besides if you leave the balcony open, you can't close the curtains because it does not make any sense since by doing that you are preventing the air from getting in or you get woken up early by the sunshine, after not being able to fall asleep... it's a vicious circle and really got on our nerves during our stay! I've used an umbrella to keep the door open, I saw other guests using their suitcases etc. I believe I was not the only one that was bothered by this. Imagine going on a vacation to relax and get some rest when you can't fall asleep because it's too hot and stuffy in the room... We were provided with a ventilator by the hotel staff, unfortunately it was a bit noisy and didn't change much temperature wise... again it's a vicious circle.
