“lovely little place”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

just back from this lovely little b&b just enter the green door in the side of the wall and you are in the perfect place 3 old villas with small garden and pool in the middle we had a great room (no 3) that had a patio in the garden and just by the pool we had the sun on the room just about all day so was nice to sit out at any time breakfast was in the lovely sun room in the main villa and was continental style with a couple of cooked items each day but every day was a fresh baked cake yummy apple,coconut,pineapple etc plus the usual flakes, toast.,yogs. Room and all public places very clean staff all pleasant would go back any time.

Room Tip: if u like a patio not a balcony room 2,3,4 all in the garden by the small pool.

We came here after listening to our friends rave about it. It's our first visit to Madeira (same friends, same raving!) and we couldn't be more pleased. This little hotel is tucked away behind gates in a little side street but once inside it's an oasis : ) We are in room 45 and it has a modest but perfectly adequate balcony overlooking the garden and towards the sea. The room itself is a delight. Breakfast is perfect for us in that the choice is good and you have the option of eating inside or in the garden. The staff are all lovely and SO helpful. Wifi is very strong and the laundry service is efficient. We've hired a car to explore the island and we worried that the absence of a hotel car park would make life a little difficult. No worries there.......the car hire outfit is right opposite the hotel and they allow us to park in their underground car par........result! All in all I have to say that we are having a wonderful holiday in Madeira and this hotel is playing a big part in making it that way. We would love to return : )

Room Tip: Try to get first floor rather than ground floor and ask for a garden or sea view.

Stayed in room 22 -beautiful sea view-lounge area and large balcony--very clean and well maintained. Room Wi Fi
Hotel in good position and secure behind locked gate. Breakfast not brilliant and more fresh fruit would be nice but did not detract from a very enjoyable stay and woulld certainly return

Room Tip: We had a superior room --good views and spacious

Tucked away behind a small gate in a back street, this really is a hidden gem. The garden and pool are great to lounge in. Breakfast outside is a real treat, with a different sort of cake on offer each morning. The apple cake was my favourite. There's so many good restaurants within easy distance, it really doesn't matter that the hotel doesn't offer any meal other than breakfast. Everyone, staff and fellow guests, felt like friends by the end of our stay. Definitely a place to come back to.

This was a warm and friendly hotel. It was a little gem amongst much bigger complexes which really suited us. Breakfast was continental as expected and was varied throughout the week. Other meals were not available and there were no facilities at all in the room to be able to prepare even a sandwich. There was a fridge. There were however plenty of quality places to eat out within easy walking distance and supermarkets selling freshly prepared goods. Although the rooms were listed as recently having had air conditioning fitted ours didn't, and at the time of our visit they were experiencing the same heat wave as the rest of Europe which made it a little uncomfortable. There were three of us travelling and our 15 year old, 6ft 3in son slept on a sofa bed all week which was far from comfortable. If there had just been just the two of us I would have rated it a lot more highly. The pool was clean and quiet with ample loungers for sitting around.
The local taxi drivers were exceptional guides who will take you to whatever sites you would like to see at a fraction of the cost of organised tours. I would however recommend a boat trip to the Desertas Islands but not if you have young children as it is an all day excursion with little shelter from the sun and nothing to do apart from whale and dolphin spotting.
