Spent a week here with Cosmos. Hotel very isolated, but superb scenery locally, and great walking. It is possible to get around on local buses, but not easy, and a car is recommended. Majority of guests were French, and also many Saga clients. Hotel clean and well maintained, staff all exceptionally good, but particularly Raimundo on reception, who was kind enough to give us a lift one day when he passed us at the roadside.
Food above average, plentiful and several choices, but not gourmet. Cosmos rep was never seen (apart from at airport on arrival) but Saga rep kindly assisted us with information, and the French company, Magellan, also had a charming team who were happy to let us join their activities if we chose to.
We struggled to find much info about local Levada walks, but at the airport on our return we found an article in a magazine that mentioned a new smartphone app that uses GPS to help you locate them, updated by University of Madeira.
Bearing in mind that we used some clubcard vouchers to pay half the cost, this was superb value for money.
