We stayed for one week at Residencial Familia, booked through Booking.com. We were given room no 8, absolutely lovely views over the bay from the balcony. This was obviously the best room in the place.
The owner (Antonio) is very keen to provide good value accommodation which this certainly is. We do not know about the other rooms. Machico is idealy suited to expeditions on the eastern side of Madeira with very good road links to Funchal and Santana. Fabulous walking all within a few minutes driving.
Residencial Familia is literally outside the Dom Pedro (only big hotel in Machico) on the south side of the town. It has an excellent attached restaurant serving local dishes. My wife ate esparda (fish) twice and I had their steak twice, very good and excellent value, 15% discount for residents.
No kettle or cups, very compact bathroom + bath (a larger person may find it claustrophopic). No hairdrier in the room (but we did not ask for one). Bed linen not changed in the whole week. Regrettably the bed mattress has seen better days - a long time ago, it brought a new meaning to spring. A rather unwelcoming girl on reception at our arrival.
Very clean and the room was serviced every day.
Good breakfasts with yogurt, fruit, fresh bread, ham and cheese and various cooked egg.
3 minute walk into the centre of Machico. Easy free parking close to hotel.
Try the food at O Gala on the town square, just as good as Residecial Familia and slightly cheaper. Tomato and onion soup and sardines are truly out of this world.
