Casa Velha do Palheiro
Ranked #21 of 88 Hotels in Funchal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 December 2010

Just the best place if you want to spoil yourselves, relax and enjoy some of the best food, service and grounds you could possibly imagine; just perfect. Golf course really excellent too - challenging but fair and really well maintained. Highly recommended, even if the weather isn't great, which unfortunatley it wasn't when we were there - the spa is brilliant and the gym and table tennis table are under cover and the tennis court is good too. Only things to be aware of are that the hotel is a way out of Funchal and it is very hilly - buses and taxis fine though, although to be honest we didn't find much need to leave the hotel - we ate in every night, which is very unlike us but when the food and environment is that good why leave? Second thing to watch is mosquitoes if it's wet - keep your windows and door shut and get some repellant from reception and / or take some with you.

Home from home. The rooms are large enough to have our four year old and two year old in our room without any difficultiy. The service was outstanding and the hotel staff were warm and keen to help. The breakfast was enjoyed by all especially the local fresh fruit and pastries. The peaceful garden and pool was a perfect respite from busy Funchal and a wonderful playground for the children. We did not get time to go to the spa and we will definitely use it on our return.

Due to my line of work, I have traveled a great deal. Therefore i have seen a lot of hotel standards. And, speaking from my own experiences, i can honestly say that i was surprised (pleasantly, of course) by the elegance by which i was met. The staff treated me and my husband like royalty. Leaving us with no other option the to relax and enjoy an amazing week of golf and sightseeing. this place is truly a hidden gem. With beautiful weather, beaches, landscapes, outdoor activities and a wild nightlife this should, without a doubt, be the destination for all types of travelers.

My wife and I spent a week at the Casa Velha and have to say it was one of the, if not the, best trips we’ve ever made (and that’s saying a lot). We were upon arrival greeted by the charming hotel staff who couldn’t wait to help us with our bags and show us around the estate. Also, wherever we went in Palheiro Estate we were greeted with a smile which made us feel welcome. This, mixed with the transfer service and great food provided in the beautiful hotel made us feel like royalty. The hotel also provided us with tips on where to eat, where to go in town as well as then providing us with transfers to and from the place of our choice.

As we were both golfers, it was extra special for us to just walk out of the hotel and get on what probably is the most spectacular golf course I’ve seen in a long time. Were we enjoyed stunning view over the Atlantic and Madeira landscape. Don’t forget to stop at the clubhouse for lunch with the stunning view over Funchal bay before returning home to the hotel spa.

Would recommend this hotel to anybody, whether it’s a boy’s vacation, a couples retreat, a golf/fishing trip as well as a family holiday.

One thing’s for certain, we’re going back ASAP.

All our needs and expectations for a relaxing week was fullfilled. Teetime from hole 10 just outside the gardengate. Nice, reasonable priced lunches in the clubhouse with panorama view. Lovely relax in the new spa in the afeternoon. Fresh early morning swim in the outdoor pool - 17' ?. Levada walking nearby. Food was excellent, but maybe a bit too formal waiters and style for dinner. Would go for this quinta next time.

We stayed here for a family wedding, and could not fault the service we received. The location is truly beautiful, the rooms pretty and comfortable, and the food superb - we were most impressed with the restaurant and staff. There were quite a lot of children in our party and after due consultation the staff pulled out all stops to provide child-friendly food at their early meal-times. We were made most welcome at the Golf Club also, which is a very child-friendly place for their food. The spa is now finished and the indoor pool was also popular - but the outdoor pool was gorgeous, in a very pretty setting. The staff were very helpful planning trips, but for a peaceful holiday, with golf if you must, I cannot think of a nicer place to take time out.

Charming Hotel located just outside Funchal. This is the perfect place if you are looking for a quality hotel where you can relax, eat good food, play good golf or just enjoy the beutiful surroundings. The hotel has a Relais & Chateaux Restaurant, challenging golf course in good condition and a beutiful garden next door.

It is a dream for any golfer to have a tee-time reserved at 09:50 every day (10th hole) with no other golfers neither in front or behind. Play the back nine and then stop for lunch and enjoy the scenery from the clubhouse terass before completing the front nine and get back to the hotel again.

I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.....
