This hotel has a beachfront spot near Santa Cruz. And you’re only a short drive from the capital, Funchal.
This hotel opened in 2006. The contemporary décor incorporates lots of leather sofas and arty photography. And outside there’s a gigantic Olympic-sized pool with its own little café.
Nearby there’s a pebble beach, a little harbour and a quaint little town. It’s also about half an hour from the island capital, Funchal – there’s a free shuttle bus that gets you there.

Excellent quality-price in an excellent location
This 4 star hotel is almost a five star, located in a sea-side, with swimming pool and astonishing views. It is located in the small village of Santa Cruz, 3 kms from Madeira Airport. They offer a daily scheduled free service between Hotel-Funchal-Hotel at different times during day. Most every night they have shows at the bar and several entertainments. A buffet restaurant offers local and international cuisine.More
We'd stay here again.
Staff are great. We are here at the moment. The food is fine! I read some of the poor reviews and can't agree. I do find the bed desperately uncomfortable but was advised all beds are the same so we couldn't change rooms. We've been here 5 days so far. The staff are great. As for towels and sheets, I read in hotel brochures that they only change them if you leave them in the floor in bathroom and take pillows off the bed. I don't think our sheets have been changed yet, but we are here another 5 days so we'll see. I understand the hotel's environmentally friendly eco policy and think it's a great idea that your towels only get changed when you need it. Close to airport so you are aware of planes but it's not busy this time of year. Hotel Is quiet too but there is s great spread for breakfast. We met Marilia the chef this morning who makes a lovely omelette with a smile and speaks English to you when you attempt Portuguese! The surrounding area is lovely too! I also like that you can't "reserve" a sunbed policy, not sure whether that would work out when it gets warmer.... Anyway we love it (so far), lovely staff and good food, maid cleans room thoroughly and we love the indoor pool and sauna etc! Happy holidays to us-we came here for some rest and relaxation, that's what we're getting (apart from the awful bed). Sleep is very important so a good mattress is crucial. If we had a decent bed and I was getting a good sleep I would have given a 5* rating instead if 4*. Here's to the next 5 days!!More
I would highly recommend this hotel. Clean and staff most helpful. The food is a little limited but still value for mone - the a la carte Restaurant is very good. We had a room overlooking the pool / sea view excellent. The little village the Hotel is in is so nice and traditional. Will definitely be returningMore
Really nice hotel in relatively quiet area, clean and modern room, and fantastic view! Food was very tasty, especially breakfast. Staff very very nice, friendly and helpful. I fell in love with Madeira.More
Looked after an aircraft full of stranded passengers really well.
Many thanks to the staff of this amazing hotel on the beach. Our aircraft was delayed overnight due to a technical fault and we were put up in excellent rooms and given a good buffet dinner and breakfast.More
