Stayed here for two nights. Hotel is clean, breakfast fine, Machico good place to travel from to surroundings. But not for longer than 2 days. Owning management always friendly and helpful. Compliment. Also speaking English very well. Car parking paid but no problem and low fares outside on the roundabout. Two supermarkets at walking distance. Overal: satisfied as a stopover...

Had a room on third floor - good size, comfy bed, nice big bathroom. Balcony with view would have been nice if weather better, as it was a howling gale not much use. Receptionist was not very helpful, took hours to locate the supermarket (which is away at the back of the town btw). Breakfast was continental' style, nice cereal,...

Overall a nice visit in a clean room with good service. It got a bit weird at the start when the hotel manager wanted us to pay in advance, but the regular staff was really nice. There is parking but it's not convenient as you have to walk around the block to get to the garage, and there is only...

Stayed here our first and last nights on Madeira. Convenient as it's close to the airport. Slept with the window open and heard the ocean which is a block away. Very friendly staff and a good restaurant. Would definitely return.

We have just spent a week in the White Waters Hotel. It is a small hotel lacking some of the facilities of the larger hotels but that is reflected in the price. The staff were very attentive and obliging, the food was nice and rooms comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located for the beach, the small village centre and public...
