10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was spacious, clean, with a small balcony with a marina view, which was very pleasant. The staff was very nice and helpful. The location was very easy to get to, there are many parking spaces in the facilities. The surrounds were beautiful with a lighthouse and a small church. There are 2 restaurants, but we only ate at the "capitain's bar" because it was super good (everyone muss try the "bolo do caco").
Cons: There is not much to complain, but one thing that could be improved is the breakfast. It could have a little bit more options and better coffee.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great breakfast as well as dinners. Helpful and always friendly staff. Interesting entertainment, for example traditional dance and songs night. Perfect and relaxing ocean view from the room balcony. Parking for free.
Cons: The wifi connection in 5th floor rooms could be stronger.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Excellent choice on the breakfast buffet. Free parking lots right outside the hotel available. Excellent dinner recommendation: The Restaurante Praia Dos Reis Magos (3 min walking distance along the beach). They serve excellent dishes! We went there every single day.
Cons: We had a room with sea view and quite close to the ocean (room no. 024). However, if you leave the window front open, you hear the swell of the sea extremely loud, esp. at night. If you are a light sleeper, definteley a point to consider. The air condition in the room didn’t work properly either, so had to deal with a lot of heat during daytime since the sun shone directly to the room all day long. Impossible to stay in the room during morning hours, the noise level produced by the cleaning ladies moving around chairs, tables and beds in the neighbouring rooms is unbelieveable. In booking.com the room was detailed to have a mini-bar, but actually available was a small, empty refrigerator, connected and put to “full power” not rendering any coolness at all. I also found the huge sink lever (somehow we got a handicapped accessible room) as well as in the shower quite disturbing while doing toiletry and showering. Last but not least, the ugly smell from the bathroom drains and toilet was making our stay even more uncomfortable. No ventilation in the bathroom either. We also expected a better coffee at the breakfast buffet for a 4-star hotel.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great spacious room with a sea view; nice outdoor and indoor swimming pools; good sauna
Cons: The hotel could have more greenery in the corridors, more plants indoors
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast buffet was really great (a pity the coffee was not up to standard). The complimentary bus into Funchal was a real treat and very much appreciated. We really enjoyed the swimming pool!
Cons: The bathroom was dated and the toilet placed in an awkward position right behind the door. The toiletries were from wall mounted dispensers which turned us off and we went out and bought shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The air conditioning appeared not to work.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, amazing service
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and well equipped.
Cons: No issues.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is situated in a convenient location, close to Funchal. Very pleasant and attractive! It has all the elements of comfort.
Cons: None! It’s all beyond any guest would expect!
6.7 Good
Pros: The hotel is quite nice, reception area and common spaces are lovely. We enjoyed the spa facilities which are free to use.
Cons: Breakfast was mediocre. Our biggest issue was that the air conditioning was broken in the entire hotel, and our thermostat was not working which we tried to tell them the night before the AC broke down. I went to reception to let them know that our AC was broken and was told there was nothing they could do until morning (fair) and was told to open a window (which is really a patio door). I then asked if they had any ear plugs as it was an extremely windy and loud night, to which I was told "this isn't a 5 star." Not a great start. Was also disappointed that you must pay to use the safe, which is absurd to me as it is used to protect your things from the hotel staff coming into the room, so it should not be 10 euros.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was amazing and the staff really helpful! Even after our stay at the hotel we continued eating breakfast there while travelling on Madeira! The staff did a great job and helped us both with recommendations for local restaurants and sights!
Cons: Tiny detail that was annoying: The shower was a bit dirty and the shampoo holder fell down right when we arrived.

Cons: The staff was very nice and helpful. We got a good breakfast.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Modern hotel, very clean and comfortable room, perfect staff, and very good breakfast. Excellent value overall. We stayed a single day before departing, so we did not explore Santa Cruz itself, but the drive to the beautiful cliffs of Sao Lorenco is only 20-25 minutes. Also, proximity to the airport is an important advantage if you have an easy flight.
Cons: No complaints.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very close to the city center of Santa Cruz and close to the airport by car. The staff is very very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very big. The pool and gym was closed due to corona virus but it seemed also nice. They even provided us breakfast outside of the opening hours because we had to leave earlier. The value for the money is very good and I would recommend to stay there!
Cons: One ned was squeaking. It is located under a bridge and the view from the swimming pool is not that nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Professional staff and service. This really is a 4* hotel that lives up to it's rating. Stylish design, comfy beds and a walk in shower with waterfall head. Like a boutique hotel back home. There's even a small library plus lots of facilities and places to enjoy the sunshine. The hotel restaurant produces delicious food, all served without you having to wait between courses. A lovely end to my holiday and I will certainly return!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at 2 a.m. due to a very long flight delay. The staff member who checked us in was exceptional. Although we had to leave in the morning we were offered a delayed check out in consideration of our late check in. The breakfast was very good. All the staff we encountered were excellent. This is a hotel that if we had planned our trip differently we could have and would have stayed for more than a few days.
Cons: Nothing

Cons: Evening meal was overpriced and pretentious with disappointing options. The waiter had a loud conversation with the people at the next table throughout dinner. Sea pool was a stunning setting but neglected and grubby. Noise from builders during the day and other guests at night. Overpriced.
10.0 Excellent

Pros: All is great and in line with 5 star experience. Very close to the airport - you can drive 2 min to spot landings, but plains don’t disturb at all (I am super sensitive to noice) Nice area, with pool, tennis courts and natural pools (should be fantastic experience during the warm months) Great restaurant for dinner and breakfasts
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I sincerely believe we could not have chosen an accommodation that would suit our needs better. We enjoyed that it is away from the congestion of downtown. We hiked the levadas and climbed the mountains, and found our time in Funchal to be less enjoyable due to the crowds. Our room was spacious with an excellent bed and bathroom. The staff were exceptional. We ate at the hotel most dinners because the food was excellent. Our server, Fabrizio, treated us as honored guests and friends; very personable. The grounds are beautiful and, despite being near the airport, were quiet and secure. We rented a car and enjoyed ample and secure parking.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cleen, close to airport.

Pros: Pools were amazing, staff beyond amazing. It was a last minute stay due to a cancelled flight but definitively a very pleasant surprise !
Cons: Walkable from the airport but a rather unpleasant walk !
9.7 Excellent
Pros: What a view! Though the airport and the expressway are near, you are down the cliff and don't hear them much. All rooms face the ocean and have a view of the desert islands cliffs. The nice tile floors and furnishings evoke "classy beach house." The service is outstanding at the front desk and in the peaceful, lovely restaurant.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel offers anything you can ask for. The location by the sea is amazing, every morning we had breakfast with the most beautiful view! The choice at breakfast is good and varies from day to day. The only thing I was sad to find out was that they took away the juice squeezer on our third day, probably because the thing splashed in all directions when used improperly. A real shame! Our booking included the free use of the spa area with different kinds of sauna. This was a great treat after a day full of sight-seeing or hiking. We also used the pools (they are not connected to the spa though) but the overall temperature was challengingly cold! We also tried to find restaurants close to the hotel but as was to be expected, they are rather touristy. Better go to the center of Caniço to find more authentic, local places. A big thumbs-up goes to the hotel for fantastic room service, very helpful and friendly staff (reception and any kind housekeepers) and their great effort to reduce waste and make good use of energy resources! Whenever we go back to Madeira, this hotel will be our choice again.
Cons: Apart from the juice squeezer that was suddenly gone ( :-D ) there is nothing to complain.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: great selection of breakfast...Location was ok

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Seawater pool and lido; view; peace and quiet (mostly); gym classes; breakfast; cleaning staff; proximity and bus service to Funchal; ecofriendly approach of hotel, adults only.
Cons: Relationship between hotels and facilities is confusing and there were some errors in advertised venues and events. Noisy neighbours on balcony next door; lengthy check in; vagueness of reception staff about options to book transport to airport at end of stay.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole complex is very nice and super clean. Unfortunately they had to close everything except the restaurant and bar because of the corona virus. There was tension in the air. I guess normally it is very beautiful and if you can enjoy all the amenities.
Cons: Even they had to shut down everything by law we had to pay the full price which in my opinion was not accurate. They also could have given uns a free drink or something like that... The standard room is quiet small. And the view was not nice. There was a wall in front of us...
7.0 Good
Pros: Food was good. AC worked perfect. Staff and service perfect. Bed perfect.
Cons: Very irritating WIFI. Login requred 100 times!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Was very spacious and very clean and a with very nice view
Cons: It wasn’t anything I didn’t like but i would recommend on installing a curtain in the bath-room and the shower-room so when having a shower/bath the water don’t spread all over the floor but other than that it’s was amazing.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great value for money Would highly recommend!
Cons: It is about 20 mins drive to funchal
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: The view is superb. That's is the only positive thing I have to say.
Cons: On arrival we had no kettle, no shower curtain, a safe that we were not told was 1 euro per day and we couldn't open after putting our passports in. The balcony door didn't close properly and was therefore never locked. The bathroom door wouldn't close properly. Our double bed was two singles pushed together and also very uncomfortable. My partner lost at least four nights sleep because of this. There was no table or chairs on the balcony until we placed our table and chairs from the dining room there. We had one mug only when we first arrived. When we complained we were told that we may as well not change rooms because they were all the same. We were charged taxes on arrival, although the booking.com page stated specifically that all charges were included. Having received no actions on our complaints, we complained to booking.com. after this we got a kettle, and a shower curtain appeared only to crash to the ground on being touched. This was replaced two days later.
6.3 Good
Pros: The rooms are good value for money. The hotel is located near the airport, which is handy when you have an early departure the next morning. The balcony has great views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Desertas Islands and other islands nearby.
Cons: The rooms aren't properly maintained: e.g. dirty walls in the kitchenette and other parts of the room. The TV didn't work properly. Entrance road to the hotel is difficult to find: the GPS led us through extremely narrow (2 metres) and steep (20 %) streets, and it's easy to get damage to your car. There seems to be a restaurant at the hotel, but it was not operating. The hotel is in an isolated location, with restaurants relatively far away. The staff at the reception was never around: only at check-in did we see someone, but when we had questions later in the evening and next morning, we could only find a cleaner.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Good accomodation for a night or two. For us very confenient because it is close to the airport and our flights arrived late en left early in the morning.
