“Beautiful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We've just come back from two weeks here. It's located 10 minutes by car from the airport (but there's no noise from planes), five minutes from the sandy beach in Machico, three minutes from the Anthia diving centre, and two minutes from the via rapida, which leads you to the rest of Madeira. Clean rooms, good food in the adjoining restaurant, friendly and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Number 2 is bigger, with a small double bed and a single, a balcony and a view of Machico Bay.

We stayed in residencia familial on our first night in Madeira. It was an easy 8 euro taxi from the airport and a good base for the walk to Baia D abra, as the bus station is only a few minutes walk into town. Comfortable and welcoming, the room had everything we needed, and a good view of the bay. The bar and restaurant were cheap and cheerful. Management are friendly and attentive. Watch out for predatory taxi drivers outside (probably best to say you have a car if you don't want a taxi!)

Spotless large room at the top of the first staircase with large ensuite . Nicely furnished.
Reception rarely staffed but owner Manager can always be found in the adjoining bar restaurant
which belongs to the hotel , but is often frequented by locals . Good atmosphere.
Breakfast was substantial and in addition to ham cheese , bread rolls etc , fried eggs were also
available freshly cooked.Freshly brewed coffee from the bar .
Situated two minutes walk from the promenade , next to Dom Pedro Baia hotel which unfortunately overshadows it .
Very good value , would stay there again . recommended.

Room Tip: Room on right at top of stairs . there is a sitting room outside of room which is very useful

The room and bathroom where very clean and we also had fantastic sea views.I feel very comfortable without spending too much money and the position in machico is excellent. The continental breakfast is good, too. 100% recommended !

We loved our stay! The room was very comfortable and clean, and the residential is very close to the beach and other amenities (few minutes on foot). The owner and all the staff are lovely and very helpful. Make us feel at home!
We suggest the residential's restaurant for dinner. It serves a delicious typical dish "filetes espada com banana frita e molho de maracujá".
We certainly will return to Madeira and, of course, we will choose to stay at residencial Família!
