Reviewed 12 June 2011

Small hotel with a deal location. Close to the village and right on the beach. Good breakfast, adequate healthclub and social areas. Swimming pool very clean.
2 small details to improve: wi-fi should be available all over the hotel and a smile would be nice from some of the staff.
Overall value for money

A short cab ride from the ferry terminal (~6 euro) it is very close to the beach and also Villa Baleira. Hotel facilities are OK, though the lift wasn't working whilst we were there (3 days) and neither was the free internet access (either from their dedicated PCs or via wifi). We were a bit underwhelmed by the welcome by the staff (but having experienced Hotel Albergaria Dias in Funchal previously maybe we were expecting too much, though a smile might have been nice). Restaurant/cafe/bar by the beach is OK, though a little overpriced. Beach is child friendly and water wasn't quite as cold as expected given that we were there in April. Overall a good hotel that could do with friendlier staff.

Perhaps options are limited on Porto Santo, but we expected better from this place. Location is great (5mins from centre) but there is a very limited number of rooms with a sea view - stupidly they built it with almost all the rooms facing either side but not in the direction of the sea! Rooms are not at a 4-star level, for example the curtains were dirty (black marks) and the bathroom floor needed extra cleaning as soon as we got the room. However, the bed was comfortable. This hotel doesn't feel at all luxury (as you might expect from a 4-star) but we were impressed with the breakfast buffet and the view from the restaurant (which was a bit overpriced for dinner). So basically there are pros and cons with this place, it's not a bad option and ok value for money but don't expect to be impressed.

Great location on the beach & a 5 minute stroll along the beach & you are in the small village. Room we had was huge & clean. Restaurant & snack bar on the beach. Bought a boat (from Madeira) & hotel package on line & compared to the cost of booking independently, this was very cheap. If you want to relax on a beautiful beach in a laid back village with plenty of food options - this is the place.

Porto Santo is an ENDLESS e BEAUTIFUL beach- CARIBBEAN IN ATLANTIC.
The HOTEL is located in front beach, close to the center of vila BALEIRA, the only town in the island, good access to restaurants and shops. This is a very nice hotel, small with average rooms, clean and a good service. Has a small pool , a little bar , and a restaurant / bar with acccess to the beach. The breakfast is good, not a big variety but the essencial is there. This hotel is twin with another (Luamar Hotel) located far away WHERE THE BEACH IS MUCH BETTER, and they have free transfers. it's important to know because is a must do go to "JOÃO DO CABEÇO"- a little restaurant (near hotel LUAMAR) and eat o "Prego no pão de caco", besides many meals also very good, like sea food and fresh fish or the " Picadinho" ....
In Vila Baleira there are many RESTAURANTES VERY GOOD ALSO.
My favorite is " A Baiana", in the historic center, near Colombo's house.
And don't forget to drink the regional drink the "poncha"
The hotel restaurant serves pizzas and fast food, besides the traditional plates

Although it is expensive, the room is quite small, the pool is not heated and our expectations were not reached.

It's not a bad hotel but surely 200 euros a night are too much!
The room door was spoilt and the bathroom not so clean.
The man in charge of the swimming pool organisation was boor and rude.

Positive impression by the reception desk.
