This was a gem of a boutique hotel up in the hills a relatively short drive from Santa Cruz, although not so well signposted!
We were staying just one night in their suite and we were not disappointed, two beautiful bedrooms and modern bathrooms. There were no views but the living area led straight out into the garden and indoor swimming pool, which was very clean and well maintained.
You are very limited in the locality for restaurants so better to stay and eat in their restaurant, but the food was wonderful despite the limited menu and slightly formal atmosphere. We felt very relaxed and our daughter was made to feel very welcome.
The weather is slightly cooler up here and you are a good 30/40 min drive to Funchal which were the only negatives to us.
As an extra note we were incredibly grateful to the members of staff who helped us retrieve a forgotten cuddly toy for our daughter who delivered it in person to our other hotel on the island.....thank you so much!!
