“Stunning location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We had a lovely week at the Aqua Natura it is very new and they have really thought about what guests need, the facilities were very good. All the rooms have one of the best views overlooking the natural pools and then the Atlantic Ocean.
The breakfast was very good, the evening meal was Ok we found the house wine the most palatable of the lot.
It is on the opposite side of the main port of the island a car is really a must if you want to explore and have a head for heights.
The only thing that let it down was the inexperience of the very young staff who have yet to perfect a true "mine host" persona this will come with experience.

What a fantastic place this is. You can't ask for more if you are coming to Madeira just to enjoy the view of the ocean and to have fresh dips in the crystal clear water. The hotel is located just on top of the large natural pool created by volcanic rocks. The helpful staff provides you with towels and free entrance vouchers to this unique pool which has got waves hitting the volcanic rocks hard on its outside while you are quietly swimming on the inside. A special experience indeed. The breakfast on the restaurant balcony early morning is a must. Our room was comfortable with a balcony facing the ocean. We kept the balcony doors open in the night just to enjoy the sound of the waves. A real treat that was. We spent a week at this hotel but regret we didn't stay longer. We were all smiles 24/7. When discovering that the view from the room not only had sunset view, and the sun rose on the horizon on the east side in the morning, we experienced something of an euphoria. "Aqua Natura Wellness & Spa" would be a more rightful name for this Hotel.

First of all, I would like to thank Filipe Fernandes for his help in preparation of our wedding trip to Aqua Natura Madeira! He helped us by e-mail to decide all questions, including place for photo session, airport transfers, the violinist (who was really perfect and helped to make romantic atmosphere) and other. And I thank all the stuff!

We've remembered Madeira as amazing place thanks to these sunny and hospitable people. They met us at airport, took to market (where we found incredible madeira's fruits), showed two famous places at the island and took to the hotel.

We booked a suite. It's was wonderful: light, airy, nice. There was a balcony with fantastic ocean and natural pool view.
The hotel is new one, so it's very pleasant to stay there. And we also remembered towels: soft, with nice smell :)

And also thanks for welcome 'just married' surprise from administration for us: candles, fruits and a bottle of rose champaign!

Our photo session was hold in solarium area with a huge jacuzzi and sauna. There we also spent our evening, had dinner and relaxed.

It's necessary to say, that Atlantic ocean is rather cold! But when you see such unbelievable natural pool, you can stop yourself :) The power of the ocean impresses very much! And it's deep blue color...fantastic!

Thanks a lot! and we hope we can come back to Madeira and your hotel again.

We stayed with our 2 teenage children for a week in this hotel. It has a beautiful view over the ocean and we watched the sunset every day of the week, either from our balcony or from the restaurant. Our room was large, clean and with very nice beds. There is access to the piscinas with free entry vouchers and towels from the hotel.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Earlier reviewers complained about the service, but those were probably the growing pains of a brand new hotel (only open for 3 months when we arrived) as service was OK (minibar refilled, nescafé replaced, towels replaced and room properly cleaned every day).
We can highly recommend the activities of the associated Turtle Diving Centre: We did a 3 hour boat trip along the coast of Madeira followed by dolphin and whale watching in the open sea. Our kids also liked the diving initiation and canyoning (they even gave us a CD with pictures of our kids during their canyoning). These activities are absolutely worth the money.
Wifi is very good.
There is no bar in the hotel, but there are lots of restaurants/bars in the immediate neighbourhood.

The hotel has a very friendly atmosphere to it and the staff are extremely helpful. The views from the balcony in our room were spectacular, and the whole experience was extremely relaxing. There are opportunities to do as little or as much adventuring as you like. The cannyoning is certainly worth the trip. I would recommend the hotel and Porto Moniz to everyone.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies overlooking the sea

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon. It was lovely from the moment we arived and were greeted with a bottle of champagne in our room. Staff were all helpful and friendly. We loved the solarium and jacuzzi. Food was delicious particularly the breakfast. All in all a fantastic base for a relaxing break. The rooms were spotlessly clean. We were given vouchers to get in the natural pools which are a must to visit.
