Inatel Porto Santo
Reviewed 16 June 2013

I stayed 3 nights at the Quinta do Serrado. It was lovely there, but once on Porto Santo which offers a 9000 meters long paradise beach, it's a MUST to stay close to the beach.
In my opinion there is just ONE very beautiful resort on the island, that's the Pestana. However, this is an all-inclusive resort with 300+ rooms and therefore a no go for an individualist looking for peace. Many of the other so called 4 star hotels look like worn out 3 star hotels, for example Luamar or Torre. They are far from 4 stars and I found them ugly and badly kept! Hotel Porto Santo earns 4 stars, but the position of the rooms is not nice, no sea view at all, and no atmosphere. Hotel Vila Baleira is a huge complex full of noisy italians which pay 600€ per person for the round trip flight plus 7 nights there. So the hotel doesn't really look like a 4 star, and if you are not italian, if you are not noisy, you can't stay there and enjoy your time.
I discovered INATEL. It is a 3 star hotel but much better kept than most 4 stars on the island.
The hotel is small (less than 40 rooms), the receptionists Claudia and Ana very nice and helpful. The suite I had was brand new. Excellent furniture, nice colours, spacious, lovely bathroom in green and blue (just a big shower, no bathtub). There is a big balcony with 2 chairs, a top house keeping, very clean wherever you look. The rate I paid was 65€ for a Suite, it is a real bargain! Very cheap for what you get here, really! The Suite at Quinta do Serrado was priced at 170€ and had the same size as here, but at Inatel the furniture is much nicer, the balcony 3 times bigger and Inatel is close to the beach. All in all I liked it here. It is "only" a 3 star hotel, but price value is excellent. You can find your peace here, and that is nice. Pity that the restaurant is sort of locked in. You can not eat outside at this hotel. But there is a superb restaurant directly on the beach close by - Pé na água, I loved it there!
