8/10 Very good

Lovely location with a great beach at the back of the hotel. The hotel rooms need to be updated and found the bar area to be quite small for a large hotel, not enough seating area. Food was lovely and staff very friendly.

A big surprise!
First impression not good; a tall building raging far above over the idyllic small town of Machico. But after staying 3 days I,m impressed! For the price for the rooms you really get value for money. Great breakfast! Situated perfect, above the beach and city center, friendly atmosphere, beautiful m surroundings. A lot do do both at and outside the hotel.

6/10 Good

Great location, very outdated and sterile.
This hotel has an incredible location as it is across from one of the loveliest beaches I have ever been to, however, the hotel is NOT GOOD. We were placed in the building across from the main tower. The only way the rooms and hallways can be described is as bizarre. The building has zero character and upon arrival the floors were wet and extremely slippery. The housekeeping carts are kept in plain sight along with the trash bags. The rooms are dirty and give a very cold/sterile feeling. There are no frills in the rooms whatsoever. Our room came with one bottle of water. The safe had no lock on it so was completely useless. The bathroom is dirty and set up in a very illogical fashion. There were also very strange level changes in our room that were very hazardous especially during the evening. When we checked in we were not given any information about any of the facilities so we were completely clueless as to how to access the beach, get towels, nearby restaurants, etc. Again the beach is tremendous, and the staff who work at the beach bar/lifeguard stations are more than helpful and friendly. There is a great little bar next door as well.

Stunning pool
We stayed at this hotel for two nights. We took the ferry from Maderia.The taxi from the port was apox 15 Euros. You can get a local bus into town for 1Euro which connects back to the ferry bus also 1 Euro for your return crossing. The hotel is eight floors high & across the road from the beach.There is an underground passage to the pool & beach. The breakfast varity was good.The room we had (8th floor) was large with a balcony with see views.
