6/10 Good

Not 4-star by any stretch of the imagination
Overall, this was a disappointing stay because the standard of the hotel does not reflect the very high customer rating or the 4-star designation... in any way! Firstly, the good: the staff were friendly and very helpful; the room was clean; the location is interesting and picturesque; we had a view of the sea from the bathroom window; enjoyed dinner at the restaurant with tasty and wholesome homemade food. Now the not so good: the room seemed trapped in the 1980s - tiny TV, musty smell, no duvet, just a ribbed blanket, flannel sheets and flannel pillowcases. The bathroom was like a municipal washroom, with polystyrene tiles on the ceiling, and public-sized dispensers for toilet paper and paper towels... I have never been in a hotel room with a paper towel dispenser before. The hotel information left in the room for guests has no welcoming or helpful content and instead is a list of rules - one of which is that no outside water, juice or soft drinks may be brought into the room??? One day, we deliberately left the Do Not Disturb sign on the door... only to find when we returned that it had been removed and the room serviced anyway. It didn't really matter, but I expect a hotel to respect their guests' privacy. When we ate dinner in the restaurant we were told they don't serve tap water because it is too high in iron... no other restaurant we ate at, the following 10 nights, refused us tap water. My later research showed that Madeira tap water is perfectly safe to drink.

10/10 Exceptional

The location is beautiful countryside, set in the mountains near a small but nice village and great nature park to explore. it is also only 15 minutes from the airport, and about the same to Santa Cruz village. The staff was wonderful and accommodating. This was a needed relax time for me and I got exactly that. They serve all three meals each day with great suggestions offered for the lunch and dinners. This stay won't provide the hustle and bustle of Funchal, but if a visually pleasing, relaxing stay is your choice, this is a good one.

2/10 Poor

Extrêmement décevant
Réservation d’une chambre avec 2 lits simples (séjour mère-fille), nous avons eu une chambre double avec un petit lit, matelas très dur. On nous a dit que c’était ça ou rien et qu’on avait pas le choix!! (plutôt déplaisant comme accueil). Chambre froide et humide, odeur de moisi. Nous avons dormi habillées car très froid (mois de mai). Enfin, petit déjeuner payé 2 fois. Inclus dans la réservation mais la gérante (?) a soutenu que ce n’était pas vrai et nous l’a refait payer! Elle était de mauvaise fois. Pdj imposé, pas de buffet.
