The warm welcome by the owners when we arrived late at night set the tone. Vila-Bela is a family owned hotel where you quickly feel like a special host/ like a friend. We travelled with our 2 children (6 and 9 y.o.) and the whole team (Paula, Belmiro, Petra, Rodolfo & all) talked, joked and played with them (and with us) proposing many activities (fishing, surfing, etc.). The kids adored their surf lessons with Belmiro and Paula and are still talking about it. The hotel is perfectly located in front of the sea in Porto da Cruz, a very laid down and charming village (definitely one of our favorites after having toured the Island).The view from our room, the restaurant or the terrace is definitely one of the nicest possible in Madeira. Another great point about Vila-Bela is the food. Fresh & home-made, definitely the best we had during our stay (and we tried many restaurants in Funchal and around the island). Don’t expect 5 stars rooms but the one we had was nice, very functional, clean and well decorated and with that view.... what else to ask for?
