Hidden gem
We chose this hotel as it was in the village of Paul do Mar where our local friends were getting married The location is perfect for a true experience of a coastal town in Madeira with amazing views walks swimming and snorkeling The hotel was perfectly located just above the sea wall so you can sleep and wake to the sound of waves The service in the hotel was fantastic and all facilities great Maybe a softer pillow would have been nice! We mostly swam in the sea but the pools were very week kept As a family we enjoyed the bars and restaurant nearby too Paul do mar is a hidden gem
