Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Santo da Serra, Portugal11 contributions1 helpful vote

Lovely hotel with friendly staff on reception who can't do enough for you, the restaurant has a few good staff but it all depends where you sit as there is one waiter there who either doesn't like his job or doesn't like us English as he acts like we're not there. The food is a mixed bag, theres probably something for everyone's taste but it is a mix of food on your plate just for the sake of eating. The rooms are good and spacious and kept clean. The beach is a man made beach and you need footwear to go in the sea as there are lots of stones and don't believe what TUI say about the beach bar/ snack bar because it is nothing to do with the hotel so you will have to walk back for food and drinks. We started eating out as the restaurant can be a bit chaotic with people making the most of the never ending food. Some good restaurants near the marina but that is it. Ideal place for relaxing if the sun's out and you like absolutely nothing to do as there is nothing around except about 6 restaurants. The trip to Funchal is worth every penny, the cable cars, the gardens and the wicker toboggan. Overall it was a good holiday once we decided to start eating out for T. The sun loungers on the beach are 2euros each and the same again for an umbrella, unfortunately these do not have a mattress and neither do the ones at the hotel so they get very uncomfortable after a while . The restaurants are nice and I would say the meals are cheaper than at home, rump steak with chips and salad is around 15euros and they treat you like a paying customer unlike the hotel restaurant where it's already paid for. The hotel seems to favour Germans and french as the daytime entertainment team don't announce anything in English and that could explain the food in the restaurant. Where tui explains about the food and drinks it says theres the option for a light lunch on the beach thanks to the hotels beach bar which makes you think that it's part of the all inclusive but on another page it says that the beach bar is not part of the all inclusive package.. I know no one can control the weather but we've been here 10 nights and we've only had 2 full days of sunshine and the rest have been a mixture of cloud, rain and sunshine which really surprised us.

Dear guests, We would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay with us at the hotel Calheta Beach. The entire team strives to provide exemplary service to all our guests to contribute to a most enjoyable holiday and clearly this time we did not achieve this with you. Calheta is indeed a true relaxing and peaceful town, outside the bustle of Funchal, but only 25 minutes away. Usually is also the sunny side of the island, on which the majority of the days is sunny (even in winter). Regarding the Lookall Bar, although it is part of the hotel building, It is a service outside the hotel. We have taken good note of your comments and will use them to monitor and improve the quality of service we deliver to our guests. We hope to have the pleasure to serve you again and to deliver a more positive experience. Warm regards Carlos Ramos Hotel Manager

Good all-in formula, clean and comfortable rooms, smiling and helpful staff. The hotel is a bit isolated and far from the tourist sites to visit. But the infrastructure is good. Nice swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds (water was a little cold when we were there - 1st week of September). The hotel is next to a public golden sandy beach (where you have to pay 9,-€/day for deckchairs).

Dear Guest, We thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review following your recent stay with us at the Calheta Beach Hotel. We are very happy to know that you had a wonderful stay with us. On this opportunity we would like to inform you that the sunbeds at the public beach do not blong to the hotel. They are under the responsibility of the local government whilst the beach is working. Our village Calheta is indeed unique and with a lot to offer. Calheta is located about half an hour away from Funchal, which is also perfect for those guest who a looking for a perfect place to rest. Its natural beauty on the country side attracts a lot of guests that are looking forward to do a hike. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back in a near future. Warmest regards, Carlos Ramos Hotel Manager

Beautiful location, 40 mins from airport and 20 mins from Funchal. The hotel could book a daily transfer to Funchal for 20eu per person return trip. This is a stunning hotel, we especially loved the outdoor area, the relaxed atmosphere and the personal friendly service of the lovely staff. (they should not have to tolerate unacceptable and rude behavior from the French and German guests especially in the bar and restaurant) More sunbeds and seating with fixed cushions in the outdoor bar area would be helpful as would designated smoking areas (we experienced some European guests heavy smoking and was difficult to avoid some evenings) We did not use the public beach it was very busy. The palm trees around the pool area and the quality of the pool would rival any tropical destination. The three children loved the kids club the staff were amazing accommodating and entertaining them for long sessions every day (2 children with special needs) This made a big difference to our holiday as we adults could then relax. The private jeep safari we booked with Green Devil was fabulous the island has stunning locations to visit, the mountains are accessible by road to nearly 6000ft and at the top of the third highest mountain Pico de Arieiro we were above the clouds the day we went - Nuns Valley was also breathtaking and of course we could not miss seeing the glass balcony on the worlds 2nd highest sea cliff at Cabo Girão 580m (1902ft) The rooms were great we had booked sea view suites and could not praise the hotel enough for the cleanliness and courteous service. The food was good lots of choice and themed evenings in the buffet restaurant were really enjoyable. The separate a la carte restaurant had a chilled relaxing alfresco atmosphere and we loved dining there (twice on our visit allowed) Food was delicious. The quiet roof top terrace was amazing for watching the beautiful sunsets we felt this was a secret escape not many guests knew about and could be made to be more of a feature especially if there was a drinks facility installed. The pool towels are really handy they are left in your room and a small charge to exchange them if needed was fair. A courtesy changing room would be useful if you have a late return flight as the hotel allows you to continue to use all the facilities after checking out of your room at midday - we really appreciated this with a large family. This hotel is highly recommended we look forward to planning our return in the near future.

Hotel was nice. Double room was two twin beds pushed together rather than double bed which left a gap at night. Food was not to our liking but was to plenty of others. Food did not really cater for British. Perfect holiday for total relaxation

Had a brilliant weeks stay all inclusive, the weather was fantastic and so was the hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. My only negative was that the food was very traditional which was lovely but my son who has food phobias and is a vegetarian struggled with the choices available, but the again the staff were very helpful in trying to sort something for him. Also they only had larger as a beer option, no bitters or ciders, but the cocktails and shorts went down really well.

Can't say enough about how good Calheta Beach Hotel is the staff are all amazing, there is so much choice of food and drink you never go hungry and thirsty. The staff wait on you hand and foot and nothing is to much trouble for them. If you need something they sort it within minutes, the receptionists are all so professional especially Suzanne who sorted out a room as requested due to being on my honeymoon. All though there is not a lot of shops around you have what you need opposite and a trip to Funchal is a must where you find all the shops you will need including a Mc Donald's and Pizza Hut and lots of lovely pubs and restaurants. Can't thank everyone here enough and I still have a week to go,I will be someone that returns here soon.
