Hotel Praia Dourada
Reviewed 10 March 2011

All we ever need from a hotel is a clean bed, bathroom and nice relaxation areas. The room was fine, the breakfasts good but the same each day, eg. breads,toaster,fruit (unfortunately tinned!!),cereal and cheese and ham. Coffee was like tar but other drinks OK. Never any teaspoons and no tea on the first day, no staff around either. Reception staff helpfull and pleasant. The pool was not clean but then it was too cold to use so perhaps in the season, that improves. The small bar down outside was fine, better coffee and nice staff.

Stayed: March 2011, travelled as a couple

This is the hotel with the best location in the city of Vila Baleira, in Porto Santo. Near the city center, with commerce, shops, restaurants, pubs and snack-bar's. It has the beach just across the main street and if you don't want to stay in the nearest beach, you have a bus terminal to another beaches.

But everything else its not just too good. Starting with the room:
Small, weak air conditioning system, lausy bathrooms (few storage spaces), old furniture, bad acoustical isolation - In some rooms you can hear people eating and talking in the breakfast room. So its a an hotel in a need of improvement.

Has a small pool, with a bar and ping-pong table.

Breakfast is a little bit limited, few fresh fruits, bad coffee, no eggs and bacon.

We booked through Porto Santo Line, the company that operates the boat from Madeira to Porto Santo, it was for 3 rooms, five people.
It cost us, 2 nights and the boat trips, under 100€ each, which is pretty cheap I guess.
Check-in is quick, don't expect to be led to your room, or get too much info out of them....there are no lifts, just stairs but it's only a three story building.
There's a computer for guests and free wireless in the lobby, pool outside, ping-pong and snooker table, with the breakfast room I think that completes what the hotel has to offer :(
It's a budget hotel, very small rooms, no appliances other then AC and television, the beds are separated by a nightstand and you cannot move them together.
The plus is its right in the town, most hotels are not, so a very quick walk and you're in the town centre or sprawled on the beach.
One more thing, the hotel only serves breakfast, no other meals.
We knew what we had booked so no disappointments!
