We spent 4nights there, not in the hotel but in an apartment nearby. Good location, in the centre, not far from the waterfront, the bus stops and the shops. Breakfast is ok, not really varied, but I would definitely recommend the banana cake! A good place for hikers wishing to go to Sao Lourenco and other hikes alongside levadas.

It was my first time in Madeira and I fell in love with the island and its people. I really wish I could write a positive review about this little hotel but to maintain the integrity of my reviews I will be brutally honest. The whole place is very dated and tired. The photos you see must have been taken... More

Both my partner and I have just returned from Machico. It was very clean and tidy. The staff are excellent. The breakfast was very simple, nothing hot was offered which became quite boring, we also had a few days when they did not seem to be open for evening meal. Other than that as I said --- You get what... More

If you want to have a really nice meal, you should try Amparo Restaurant, in Machico. The place is calm, the decoration is lovely and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. If you take a look at the menu, you'll see that there's a great variety of dishes, meat or fish, but i chose "steak on the stone". I... More

Well decorated, calm and friendly hotel in the city center. Because it wasn't full, we could choose room. Room was big and comfortable. The staff was really friendly. Their restaurant is very good. We booked early so we could use the parking place in the garage next door. Perfect place to discover the island and relax on the beach too.

The food was fantastic at this restaurant they were able to cope with a group of 20 with an hours notice. This would normally spell disaster but the food was great.
