Hello fellow travellers,
Well, what can I say!
I reviewed the hotel Calheta beach earlier this year in March, with a heading, Best hotel ever, and indeed it still is. In fact, its even better, and eventhough the hotel is classed as 4 star, we have to give it 10 stars.
All the staff are really kind and helpful right from the start, infact immediately you walk through the door on arrival. The reception / bar / and dining room staff are all fantastic and will go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy your holiday. We cannot pick fault with any staff in hotel Calheta beach. They make you so comfortable and relaxed.The food is great with a good choice, buffet style and if one likes the cakes of Madeira, then you have got it made.
Beautiful pool area and pool bar. Bar staff speak good English. You can sit and relax at the pool and just enjoy the Madeirian sunshine and get yoourself that perfect tan. It never rains in Calheta during the summer monthes, so no need to worry about that. Rooms in the hotel are very good and very clean with good spacious balconies. Sea view rooms are recommended for seaview and poolview and give a lovely view of the Marina next to the hotel. These are the sunnier rooms and fully air conditioned,eventhough you can get a nice breeze off the sea.
The beach is also lovely, two facing each other with like a lagoon in the middle. There is also space to play tennis or ball on the beach.
In the hotel, there are three bars, one at each end and the poolbar. The lookall bar has entertainment untill 2am and the hotel entertainment is untill around 11pm each night and is very good entertainment. Something different every night.
Calheta beach hotel is an excellent hotel if you are seeking a good quiet peaceful hotel and of course a good nights sleep, but if one is looking for all night drinking and entertainment, then this is not the hotel for you, nor the area of Calheta, as its a very quiet area. 9 See also my review for Calheta.)
You can get out and about from Calheta. There is a hotel mini bus service to the city of Funchal for 17.50 euros return. This leave hotel 3 or 4 times aweek from 09.30 to Funchal and picks you up at 5pm. You get a good 7 hours and drop off and pick up is just yards away from the tourist area. Plenty shops and a park, and you cannot get lost.
You can get boat trips from the Marina by the hotel, and there is public bus stops outside the hotel, which is said to take longer to Funchal, but is an interesting ride. Hotel bus is quicker and a lovely driver and speaks clear English. Bus station in Funchal will take you anywhere on the Island. Watch those bus times.
Last of all, Calheta beach hotel is perfect for famillies and older people who want a peaceful holiday and a quiet night. We recommend all-inclusive, as the drinks can be expensive. All- inclusive is from 10am-10pm, and sandwiches in the afternoon to keep one going. Lunch as a good variety of fish in the dining room and is served at 1pm -2pm, and dinner 6.30pm - 9pm.
THREE CHEERS TO ALL THE LOVELY STAFF. Keep up the good work. Hope to see you all again soon. God bless to you all. Thanks for that perfect holiday.
