    Peaceful location. Beautifully designed hotel. Excellent staff.

    Menu in restaurant over complicated. Shower ran hot and cold.

    A perfect location for some relaxing days. Out of town, right in the middle of nowhere. No ATM machine and no noise. The perfect relaxing spot in Madeira. It´s perfect to take a break and enjoy youself.

    A 5 stars luxury hotel, nothing more to add.

    Its a wonderful hotel but the price is way to high for what you get. The access is quite difficult to get there but on the other hand u stay away from everything. Comfortable and big rooms.

    What you need to walk outside to get to the main buildings, swiming pool and all other facilities. Luckily it wasnt raining. The restaurant is overpriced , not much variety for breakfast. Staff at the restaurant very rude. If you like sleeping with the balcony window open u will get full of moskito bites! Overpriced!

    The warm and friendly welcome, relaxed atmosphere, great views of the Ocean from the room, really-a room with a View!! The wild nature surrounding the bungalow the design of the room-smallish but with all the comfort

    Breakfast-could have been more diversified (ex. Just one sort of cheese/ham in a place that has plenty of assortments) but loved the fresh fruit! However far away from a 5 star hotel breakfast restaurant meals-although advertised as a gourmet restaurant, some choices were not at all what one would have expected from the description in the menu (but were not charged either, as a result of that fact that they remained untouched) design of the rooms-although feng shui style was aimed at, there were too many sharp objects/corners in the design of the room (including edges of the bed) and the design/colours could have been smoother to fully insure relaxation

    Friendly,helpful staff.Attractive accommodation & surroundings.

    No hand-basin in the separate wc in the deluxe room - have to go into the main bathroom to wash your hands.Very dim lighting in communal areas,stairs and the bar.

  • Group of friends

    It is a very quiet place with great view over Funchal and the sea. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    It urgently needs "maintenance/overhaul"; the pools need cleaning, the fitness room looks neglected, refurbishing is badly needed.

    An awesome large room with a great feeling of space, fantastic views of the bay, verandah to chill, a really stressfree holiday.

    Spa mixed gender.

    Staff were excellent, facilities were great, food was good, views were fantastic, Massages were among the best I've ever had (that is saying something). If you want a romantic getaway, or just to relax, or a great base for a walking holiday then this is a great option.. It is lovely.

    Im nit-picking, but: If you like sun bathithe then the sun disappears behind the madeiran cloud by 11am, it is also about 5 degrees C cooler than Funchal as it is over 500m above sea level, anything over 20 degrees in May at the resort is apparently good going. Also, this is not an adult only resort, and the one or two children that were there were not particularly quiet, which was not ideal in the spa area.

    Fantastic views, very fancy room, excellent service, perfect breakfast, frequent transfer service to Funchal city center. Complementary Madeira wine tasting.

    The view. We loved looking over Funchal and the harbour and we watched some spectacular sunsets as well as the longest amazing rainbow. The staff were lovely and the food was good too. Great to have the shuttle service into Funchal and also being able to walk along the levada to the cable car.

    When lying in the bath in our room, the sealant underneath the slate became visible and it was quite mouldy. The indoors swimming pool too would benefit from a scrub, as some of the sealant was black. The sauna and steam room were quite small; and the cushions for the outside sun loungers need replacing, they seemed a bit tired. We had a lovely stay overall and would come back again at the special rate we paid. Had we paid a rack rate then it would definitely have felt overpriced.

    The service was friendly and attentive. It's located on a Levada walk that takes you down to the tropical gardens and the funicular that takes you either to the middle of town or to the botanical gardens.

    It's a bit of a dump - disheveled decor and hit-or-miss cleanliness. The "spa" is downright because it just needs a deep cleaning. No luxury amenities, etc. It's also so high up in the mountains that laying by the pool was rendered impossible because of the lingering clouds. Not a place to visit if you want to lay out and get sun. Also, I contacted the hotel via email about hotel transport and never heard back. Rooms didn't get cleaned until late afternoon.
