Good light bathroom with plenty of room for washbags etc. Very good breakfasts and plenty of choice. As a coeliac I was well looked after and provided with GF cereal and bread. The only downside although nothing to do...

Set in a beautiful location, immediately next to the Palheiro Estate Gardens, this is a comfortable and small hotel (37 rooms). The breakfasts are wonderful with an amazing choice of fruit. Spa/heated swimming pool are a real bonus. Not so impressed with dinners at hotel which seemed a bit overpriced for not always first rate food.

Lovely, small, bijou hotel set high in the hills away from the crowds. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Beautiful gardens to walk in. However, because of its location, it is often shrouded in mist or fog so playing golf (course not in the best condition and top-end price and you need to have stamina to walk it) is not...

Excellent resort, facilities and location. The staff were always helpful and it was great to regularly see the manageress supporting her staff, and to be able to talk to her. We liked walking in the Palherio garden before breakfast, and the convenience of travelling by bus to Funchal town, what a thrilling ride!!
