9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff is really wonderful, always available for any request and friendly. The natural swimming pools are just amazing! We also liked the fitness facility, tennis and jacuzzi. Breakfast was very nice, just as the evening dinner that we tried once. Room very spacious and quiet, even though it’s just below the airport. Easy walk to Santa Cruz, which is a nice little town.
Cons: Would have been even better to be on the first floor (superior room) since the people above us were a little noisy, moving chairs. And the view is probably slightly better.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I was overwhelmed by the whole experience. I had paid for the airport shuttle, and was picked up with my name on a card in the company minibus and it was just me. The amount of facilities you had access to, as a guest of the hotel, was incredible-the two hotels, the sports centre, the spa, the restaurants and bars-it was amazing. My room was available to check in to, early. The receptionist went above and beyond to inform me of all opportunities. The spa was incredible and I had the best massage I've ever received. The views were breathtaking. It is a great location; not too far from Funchal-only 2.20 Euro for the bus into town. The receptionist also helped me book my whale and dolphin spotting experience, with Magic Dolphin, which was incredible. The staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. I went at the beginning of June for a short solo break and it was perfect. I will absolutely be returning.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very nice gesture of the hotel to upgrade us to suite knowing it was our honeymoon trip! We like the responsive and friendly staff. Views from the hotel room is amazing. Room is comfortable and good cleaning service daily.
Cons: Atlantis restaurant is overrated. Breakfast spread is limited and food quality has plenty of room for improvement. We also tried their lunch, and disappointed with our tuna and beef fillet. Taste is meh and not worth the price and stomach space!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from the hotel is just WOW! The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was a great with many options, and the restaurants/bars on site are incredible! I liked the variety of sun beds/lounges by the pool.

7.0 Good
Pros: Being a small hotel it doesn't feel crowdy despite being at full capacity
Cons: Despite having booked almost 8 months in advance was placed on the first room nearest to the entrance and therefore a very noisy room
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed for here for our honeymoon, and it was the best stay ever! the hotel is very modern, environmental friendly, has all facilities in mint condition, food is great too! the bonus part, our room was full ocean view! massive door which let us enjoy the outdoor scenery to the max! loved every minute of it!...having said all this...we constantly miss our room & view! I'll recommend it to everyone!
Cons: Breakfast starts at 8, most tours we did picked us at 8.20 from the hotel, breakfast was in a rush from our end, perhaps if they can start it at 7.30 it could be better....but its just 1 minor thing...still survived :D
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I honestly liked everything about the property. Rooms are spacious with an amazing ocean view. Beds are comfortable. AC works perfectly with almost no noise. Infinity pool and Spa sections are incredible. Taking into account that sauna was always empty I enjoyed it every day. Breakfast is for Portuguese standards excellent. So much variety and what is most important it was freshly made and very tasty. I was looking forward to it every morning. Restaurant and Bar/Lounge area are also very comfortable and offer a beautiful view with a delicious menu. Hotel and Restaurant Staff was extremely friendly, we really found Duarte Santos helpful with every facet of our visit. Also cleaning staff (I believe her name was Sonia) was so kind and made our stay as comfortable and clean as possible. We really appreciated patience, kindness and care that we have encountered in this hotel.
Cons: N/A I really enjoyed every aspect of this hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Quinta da Capela is set in a beautifully restored heritage house. Timber ceiling and furnishings lend a sense of history. Our room was spacious with elegant ceramic bathroom. The garden has lovely terrace overlooking mountains and ocean. The location is excellent with a short stroll to Levada Castelejo, 5 min ride to Alagoa beach in Porto da Cruz and 20 min to airport by car. If you like silence and tranquility of mountains, this place will be great for you. We were very excited about Regina's hospitality and sincerity. We will miss the calm of this home very much.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable bed, silence. Parkside next to hotel.
Cons: Breakfast. Could be more vegetables and local fruits. Untasty scrambled eggs from mixture, not natural.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: This is a perfect accommodation if you need to stay close to the airport. By car it‘s about 5 min from the airport (approx. 6€). You can even walk to/from the airport, but I wouldn‘t recommend it with heavy bags. On foot (and with no bags) it took us about 25 min. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished and clean. We couldn‘t hear anything from the airport. As there weren’t many other guests during our stay the breakfast was served to the room and was very rich. There is a gym and an outdoor pool. Unfortunately the weather was too cold to swim, but the pool area looked nice and clean. Altogether a very convenient hotel with friendly staff
Cons: I can‘t think of anything...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location (close proximity to airport), very clean and comfortable
Cons: Aircondition didnt work very well
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This Hotel, is very well presented and modern. It is a short distance from the Airport which is what attracted me to it in the first place. I was very pleasantly surprised, it exceeded my expectations. The costs of eating the restaurant were very reasonable, however, myself I ate in the Village so close by with lots of choice and again very competitive pricing. The taxi cost from the Airport to the Hotel was 6.60 euro and 8 euro on the return. I would consider booking here again.
Cons: Nothing at all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Modern hotel with attractive rooms and comfortable beds. The breakfast was nice with very good bread, cereals and cake. The English -speaking staff was very friendly and helpful. Bus-stop to the airport and Funchal in walking distance (5 minutes). Free parking next to the hotel was available. We would come again.
7.5 Good
Pros: I generally liked the property and free parking nearby. The shared terrace near the pool was great. The breakfast was nice.
Cons: I didn't like the constant smell in my room located near the pool, nor some other minor things. For example, the rug in my bathroom was missing most of the time (Is it really so hard to exchange towels including the rug?) and new (unused) plastic cups weren't supplied automatically without my explicit ask. In fact, in a **** hotel I would expect a glass in my room, not cups, but OK... These are just tiny things, which, however, had some negative impact on my experience.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff was very friendly, room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, breakfast was all we needed for a good start to the day. Lokation is good, just a short stroll to get to the promenade and town center
Cons: The water in the shower took a long time to heat up.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location in the centre of Canico was excellent. The hire car parking was inside and the ground floor apartment was very suitable for our use of a folding mobility scooter. We particularly liked the botanical garden tour which has over 1,000 species of trees, plants and shrubs from around the world. Having stayed here previously some 15 years ago, it was nice to see the additional apartments, large patio areas now completed with a perfect vista out to sea.

Pros: The SPA was great, even thought the massages were quite expensive, but it was worth it, also, the staff was really polite and always ready to help anyone, language barriers are not a problem at all. The food was really nice, especially for the meat, that was really juicy and savoury, the cakes and the fried food, the wine was too fruity, but quite tasty. The room was really cozy and the beds were comfortable, but separated instead of a king-size. Nearby the airport.
Cons: The cocktails were not really tasty, the gym was really unequipped, just light dumbells and a short barbell, then some machines. There were too many appetizers and too much cheese compared to main dishes. The town is very calm, a vehicle is recommended.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very clean with good equipment. The indoor swimming-pool and sauna are a great addition.
Cons: Classical ressort hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is maybe the first time when I couldn’t find anything annoying about a hotel. Location is very good with lots of flowers around. The hotel is very clean and with lots of light. The breakfast was also good. To save effort book the shuttle option from the airport to the hotel and ask the staff to arrange rent-a-car to wait for you at the hotel parking. You can leave it in the end there as well. That was very convinient.
Cons: More as a recommendation not as something bad but you have great fruits on the island so maybe it will be a good idea to offer fruit fresh during the day at your menu :)
9.3 Excellent
Cons: Limited food offer in bar and short bar opening times
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is situated in a nice old building with a lot of charm. The rooms are big and confortable in a new building on the back and there are my favorite Ritual products in the bathroom. There's a heated pool for the colder days and a fireplace in a cosy lounge. The food was very good, with local dishes and the staff really helpful for everything. I would certainly return !
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Wounderful remote location and old building with beautiful garden. Excelent dinner. Location is appropriate for golfers and hikers. Just 10 km to get to the airport and half and hour to reach Funchal or pico Areiro. Of coure, you have to rent a car to get there.
Cons: The beds are too soft and palstic protective sheets unaceptable. Spa area should be separated from the pool and with more strict rules of use (some people use it without towels, other as changing room). More healthy food for breakfast would be nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room is a typical hotel room, while the building with its rooms and ambiance is a treat. All the facilities you expect in a hotel room were there. The indoor swimming pool and sauna are very nice. The breakfast is good.
Cons: A minor thing: we slept well, but the beds could have been better; the upper matras has a sort of plastic feeling.

Pros: Good breakfast with several choices. The fruit was fresh and seasoned. The staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of information available for those who wanted to go hiking, or sightseeing in general. Good environmental practices. The room was quite comfortable and clean.
Cons: Poor sound insulation. It was possible to hear the other guests, whether talking or closing the doors. In the morning we ended up waking up from the noise.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very cozy and boutique hotel. The personnel was very kind and helpful. The food is excellent. They only had domestic and fresh products for both breakfast and dinner. The fish dishes and the apple tart with vanilla ice cream are definitely my favorites!
Cons: The pool is less good than expected. Very small and didn’t even bother to go to the pool. The hotel is located a bit outside from Funchal and has a golf yard . For golf players a great location but the city center is reachable with busses by bus or taxi.

7.0 Good
Pros: Nice breakfast, close to water, no beach, good views
Cons: Dinner was buffet only, no order off menu, so have no idea when food was cooked, what it is and I would like it, and who else handled it. Not the healthiest meal. We ate dinner out every night. Everything was extra money, like the safe.
6.3 Good
Pros: They allowed us to check-in early without requesting beforehand. They were friendly and helpful at check-in in making activity recommendations. They allowed for early morning check-outs as well. Bus stop near by.
Cons: We had a pretty early flight, in which they allowed us to check-out when needed. However, our reservation also includes breakfast. They told us they could have a small breakfast ready for us in the morning at check-out. We were not expecting a huge spread so early in the morning, but we were told we could serve ourselves in the restaurant and they had left out American toast bread, ham, and cheese (all covered by plastic wrap). The cheese and meat were room temperature at best. They could at least have offered cereal or fruit that doesn’t have to be kept cold. We didn’t need anyone to serve us, but this was unacceptable. We would have been happier being told they couldn’t provide breakfast so we could prepare our own from the supermarket. Definitely NOT four star hotel material.
3.0 Mediocre
Cons: Pictures on the website do not reflects the actual hotel. Old furniture, Old sheet, safe with no combination lock, paper thin room door with huge gap. Therefore we were able to hear every single noise. Room lacks four star hotel amenities like slippers, bathrobe, daily complimentary water refill. Always cold and untasty breakfasts. Unpleasant and unhelpfull staff. Housekeeping to early before end of breakfast. Pool cleaning during breakfast hours in front of guests. We do not recommend this hotel but if you want to relive the 90s it is perfect hotel for you.

Pros: Very kind and helpful staff (Our family member had an accident in mountains and a guy from reception contacted rescue service. He made sure they found her and he kept me updated about the whole rescue operation. A big thank you!). I also liked the sauna and the heated pool (inside the hotel) - perfect for those chilly days. Breakfast was good as well.

Cons: Nothing really!
6.3 Good
Pros: Two wedding over two weekends where the wedding guests completely took over the hotel grounds and facilities. The noise levels meant it was difficult to sleep. We should have been made aware of the weddings. At the time of booking as weddings are booked well in advance. I understand the need to put on weddings on in hotels but not at the expense of paying holiday makers.
Cons: Staff, location

Pros: The inside pool is warm and large and we always had it for ouselves! This was the best feature. The breakfast was really good. Certainly when sitting in the sun.
Cons: The dinner was good for non vegetarians, but that evening not really fit for vegetarians, so we only ate here once. Plus the restaurant atmosphere is a bit too open in my opinion. The room had a bit of a smell, but was good for the rest.
7.0 Good
Pros: Swimming pool, nice that it’s inside since the hotel is situated quite high. Buffet and breakfast was nice and good price.
Cons: The toilet in the room was loose and was not repaired after having mentioned at the reception. Bathroom is old fashioned and needs renewal. It also smells humid in the room. There was no ventilation in the bathroom.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly helpful start. Location and views.
Cons: Lovely friendly staff. Perfect location. Best breakfast , so far this holiday. Great restaurant and bar.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The position, just by the sea; the kindness of the personnel from the lady at the reception who was just super to the manager and the cleaning staff all polite and professional. Rooms were quite large (ours was massive even with a small patio with chairs and table) and SPOTLESSLY clean with change of towels every day. We had an early flight the next morning and, ordering it the night before, they made us a pic nic bag to take away: nothing fancy but again a nice touch. Leaving the window ajar you can hear the murmur of the waves on the pebble beach: so relaxing! The restaurant has an extensive menu with both seafood and meat options, less so for vegetarians or vegans. Some dishes were delicious and really well made (local specialities like scabbard fish with banana and tuna steak) while others (spaghetti and the soups) were bland and anonymous compared to those of other establishments just along the promenade and elsewhere in Madeira. If there was a buffet breakfast option I would not have hesitated to give full marks and would consider it again for a couple of nights in Porto da Cruz
Cons: To be picky breakfst was just ok: while the "a la carte" choices were quite a few and there's bread, jam, fruit provided, we found that compared to the other places we'd stayed in Madeira something was amiss. Yogurts were the uht long life ones you could get at a discount, one per person, all fruit+sugar flavours, no plain/low fat offered. As said breads were provided but no other sweeter option like a croissant or muffin or biscuits. Juice was served but only orange. Might work for some but our family personally prefers a buffet with a bit more options.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very nice breakfast where we could choose from a menu. Our room had a wonderful sea view and was clean. The hotel fully lived up to our expectations. The balcony was nice.
Cons: The room was quite small and the bed a little hard

10.0 Excellent
Pros: - Excellent location. Hotel situation 2-minute walk from bus stop to Funchal, 2 minute walk to nearby restaurants and not even a 5 minute to the nearest Spar shop which has everything you need. - Airport transfer at additional cost: 1 Person: 18,00 € per way / 2 persons: 10,00 € per person/way. On weekends, bank holidays and between 09:00 pm and 06:00 am there is a surcharge of 20%. The journey between the hotel and airport is only 10 minutes. - Hotel twin room with balcony was the perfect size for 2 people. Beds were comfortable, there is a pillow menu should you require additional pillows. The room is equipped with a lounge chair, long desk, tv, mini fridge bar, very large wardrobe and two bedside tables. - The balcony has a table & 2 chairs, definitely large enough to sit out on - The bathroom is great. Very large shower, big basin area with 2 wall mirrors as well as a magnifying mirror. A Hairdryer is also provided as well as several bath towels. - Our room was cleaned at roughly 9am each day, which for us was perfect! We were in the room one of the mornings and the lady who came in to clean was very thorough but also very quick. - The beds were comfortable and there were additional blankets in the wardrobe if needed. - There was also an aircon monitor (which we didn’t need to use) in the room. - The TV came with TV channel list of availability which was super helpful (several channels in English/German/Portuguese). Included BBC Entertainment, TLC and ENews. You could also log in to your own Netflix account via the TV, which was a great addition! - Hotel facilities are perfect. The gym facilities are included in your stay, a great perk! As are the exercises classes, of which there are several in the morning and afternoon to choose from. Definitely take advantage of this – classes range from Body and Soul (Yoga/Pilates) to Body Pump and Spin. - As guest we also had the use of the Galomar hotel next door which included the Spa area.
Cons: - Given that the hotel distance from the airport was only 10 minutes, the airport transfer fee should be included in your stay!
5.8 Okay
Pros: The breakfast selection was very good. The views were lovely. Beds were comfy. Room was a good size.
Cons: We didn't like the fact that we weren't told when we booked that there would be renovations going on so it was quite noisy and not relaxing. We could use the facilities of the neighbouring hotel but that wasn't what we were expecting. Not many sun beds that were actually in the sun.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: The food in the hotel was good. We were a little disappointed in "Captains" as we have been visiting this marina for many years and watching the resort being built. Every time we came we would eat in this restaurant and this time we thought neither the service or the food was as good as we remembered it.

A moody dinner on offer a; la carte / very exclusive / Well of course, beautiful surroundings and views.
Cons: Nothing
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: See above would never stay here again of this is their attitude to customers.
Cons: Dreadful staff and terrible customer service. In almost 40years of significant work travel I have never come across such a dreadful policy and such blatant theft from a hotel. Having had only 1 egg and 1 scoop of baked beans for breakfast I cut one slice of high protein bread to take back to the room. A staff member told me this wasn't permitted. I explained I was diabetic had left my tablets in the room and unfortunately get very sick if I dint take them with food. He shrugged his shoulders and said I dint care it's not allowed. I asked him to get the manager of it was a problem but that given how little I had had by comparison to everyone and that it was for medical reasons this was ridiculous. 10 minutes later no manager had arrived so I went back to my room, took my glucophage tablets, ate my slice of bread and left. The hotel have now taken 14 euro off my card with no authorisation or communication, for a slice of bread which in these circumstances is utterly criminal. Their staff at breakfast were totally rude and the manager didn't even bother to come. Utterly disgusted.
