A bit out of town but superb lodging in nature with excellent service. A real treat for couples who enjoy style without pompe. Would stay there again anytime. Worth staying a few days while visiting the island. Wish the levada in the vicinity were open again.

A very medicre room set in fine gardens and that is where the positive experience eneded. The evening meal reminded us why Nouvellle Cuisine went out of fashion a long time ago. Tiny portions, exorbitant prices could only be attractive to 80ies yuppie idiots. After the thoroughly disappointing evening meal, we had great hopes on the breakfast to come. Unfortunately,...

Beautiful small hotel set alongside Palheiro Gardens. Excellent fine dining in the evening. We are golfers and played every day of our 7 day stay. Wonderful varied course with fantastic views over Funchal from the Clubhouse. Shuttle bus available for visits to Funchal. A must is a trip up to Monte Palace in the cable car which is quiet around...

This hotell is surrounded with the most beautiful landscape you could imagine. The botanical garden is well maintained and are in my opinion the most beautiful on the island, if not the most beautiful I have seen ever. The scenery over Funchal is best from the golf restaurant, in near stroll distance. The hotell itself is really worth its five...

Fabulous hotel. Service second to none. Have already booked for a return visit. The garden was stunning. We found no faults. It is up above Funchal so an oasis of calm to return to after visiting elsewhere on the island. Although part of a massive golfing centre we found plenty to keep us occupied as non golfers. Would highly recommend.

This amazing hotel does not fall short of perfection. Everything was amazing, the staff is incredible and the golf is out of this world. The views of Funchal from the golf course and the club house are the best you will ever see, a definite must.

The hotel was comfortable, clean and had beautiful well kept gardens. The staff were charming and attentive, offering great support and assistance to my husband and I. We ate some wonderful meals which were freshly prepared and presented beautifully. The location was on top of a mountain with wonderful views.
