    ‘My week of vacation was wonderful!’ Original review (automatically translated)

    I feel very well recovered, was able to implement my wishes and activities very well. The hotel is beautifully located, already at the arrival and also further one does not come out of the amazement. The staff is very friendly, uncomplicated, well organized and you feel safe and accepted. I can only express a thick praise. I felt very comfortable there! Also the activities around the hotel, super! Had an eventful week and come back with wonderful impressions of the island. show more

    ‘Fantastic vacation on a wonderful island’ Original review (automatically translated)

    Madeira is spectacular and unique. All the better if then the accommodation fits perfectly into the surroundings. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Clean, everything new, simple pleasant style. Spectacular location with fantastic views. Very nice restaurant.
    • Service and hospitality
      Overall good. Everything is taken care of properly. Occasionally, however, one has the feeling of being a bit of a nuisance with the reception staff as a guest.
    • Cuisine
      Very tasty and very good quality, both breakfast and dinner. A bit more vegan options would be nice. At breakfast except fruit, jam and muesli udn soy milk practically not available.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      I was only at the Lido, never at the pool. One lies very nicely on the stones and there are enough accesses to the sea. Attentive lifeguards. For me, a rock and the great Atlantic is enough, so I was very satisfied. But: The sunbeds and umbrellas looked very worn. Overall, there are too few umbrellas or shade options. Maybe offer a sun sail over the stone sunbathing area? I'm not sensitive to the sun but you really lie unprotected in the blazing sun. The two pools are very small. So if you can't or don't want to swim in the Atlantic you have rather limited options.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Yoga classes offered were very good overall. Otherwise nothing used.

    ‘A warm start of the winter’ Original review (automatically translated)

    Madeira surprised us as a holiday destination, beautiful island and we had beautiful summers again at the end of November. Great and definitely on our list for the future. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Beautiful new hotel with a nice spa and wellness. The sea view from the saunas and relaxation rooms is overwhelming. As well as that from the breakfast area. Spacious sea view room is recommended for booking.
    • Service and hospitality
      Friendly and accurate staff.
    • Cuisine
      Very good breakfast. Standard dinner was fine considering the price ratio. At an additional cost possible to eat in the fish restaurant, this was very good.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Beautiful spaces with spectacular sea views.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Happy hour for massages. Good treatment.
