Stayed in Madalena mainly to do some diving and whale watching. Madalena is not the most interesting town but the water experiences are very good.
Baia da Barca is a new apartment hotel that have some very large and modern apartments. Ground floor is a larger living room with couches and tv. A fully equipped kitchen is integrated. Second floor had two large bed rooms with a large balcony. Small but nice pool area. Restaurant only for breakfast which had a limited choice but overall acceptable. Service was friendly but reception only open for a limited time.
Only negative thing was the location which was in the outskirt of the city. If you didn't have a car the walk to the centre of the city was through the industrial area.
Will certainly recommend the hotel for travellers that have excursions during the day and who wants a quiet place and possibility to relax with own food after a busy day.
