Just back from a week at this lovely hotel and first holiday with our baby. This island feels totally unspoilt, although it is a package holiday we didn't feel
Like that's what we were on. The hotel is immaculately clean, staff are incredibly friendly. The beach is absolutely stunning, hotel provide free sun umbrellas and windbreaks and there is a beach bar, water is clear and calm and sand is white... Paradise! We also spent time at the pool, loved the double bed sun loungers! We upgraded to a suite which was great with a baby and she was provided with really comfy cot. Food is good, variety and the Madeiran restaurant a la carte was really yummy. Only downside is that the pool is freezing, children aren't allowed in the indoor spa pool but you can use the indoor pool at the Columbus next door. Worth heading there also for the cocktail bar in the evening and for crepes, waffles and ice cream snack bar.
We were looking for a chilled week, we've come back happy, relaxed and about a time heavier! Book a jeep tour through an operator in the town, cheaper than thomson and supports local economy. Weather was a bit changeable with some rain but other days were glorious.
