Pros: The hotel was extremely clean. Staff were very polite and helpful. Views were amazing.
Cons: The only thing that we missed was not being able to make a cup of tea/coffee in the room but this was a small minor.
Location: The caves are well worth a visit and we would highly recommend the half day / full day tours . Our guide Sergio was fantastic.
We throughly enjoyed our stay at Estalagem do vale. The staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. The food at the hotel was excellent and we were lucky to enjoy some live traditional music on the Saturday evening. This hotel has amazing views and is a peaceful relaxing place to stay.

Comfortable hotel in amazing location

We stayed in this hotel for a week. The room was comfortable and included a mini fridge. We enjoyed breakfast each day with a good variety of fruits, bread, cooked breakfast, yoghurt and cereals. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a sauna, turkish bath and jacuzzi as well as outdoor pool. The mini golf is fun and there is a pool table and table tennis. It's only a 5 minute drive down to the Sao Vicente sea front, but it would be a steep walk.

Cons: Mini fridge or being able to make ones self a hot drink in the hotel room would be nice...
Location: The Sao vincete... is small,, but the Sea front has a row of shops and plenty of places to eat... A lido is nearby too... Local Buses useful and cheap
Hotel was not a 4 star more like a 3 star... i.e. no mini fridge in room... Basic old school tv with crappy picture, however the food was good Breakfast simple good food..Dinner was nice freshly prepared. Swimming Pool very small. The staff were very friendly and very helpful on a day to day basis in proving tips on what to do where to go. I now have very toned legs from climbing the hill from Sao Viencete to the Hotel :-) Rooms were clean, and comfortable...

Beautiful situation but not 4*

4 out of 5
Posted Jan 1, 2016
Pros: The position in the mountains away from other tourists, with a wonderful distant views.
Cons: Room lighting particularly
Location: Dramatic mountain scenery.
Food at breakfast was uninspired, (we did not eat at the hotel in the evening as the dinner menu looked less interesting than the seafront restaurants in Sao Vincente where we ate and which were also much cheaper.) Pool was basic, common parts adequate. Lighting in rooms poor, particularly bathroom. So very pleasant but not a 4* hotel.

Lovely hotel in a beautiful location

Posted Nov 10, 2015
Pros: Staff were really helpful, food in the restaurant was good and prices reasonable.
Location: There is a little local bar next door which is quaint and very cheap 1.6 euro's for a beer but after this the nearest bars and restaurants are 2kms
This small hotel is on the North of the Madeira which is much quieter and unspoiled than the Funchal side. It is in a wonderful location with stunning views of the mountains and sea and as it is a bit cooler after dark the staff light a real fire which was very romantic. One downside is its a bit out of the way so you do need to hire a car if you want to stay here.

A gem of a hotel in a fantastic setting

Posted Jun 21, 2015
Pros: Well appointed, comfortable and in a fantastic idylic location
Location: A quiet spot for those wishing peace and quiet. A number of walks nearby
A total contrast to the hustle and bustle of Funchal. Well worth a 2/3 night break during a longer stay on Madeira

Good location for exploring this part of island

by from Bucharest
Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pros: Covered outdoor pool Jacuzzi Gym room
Cons: No WiFi in the room No fridge Small TV Breakfast ok, but we missed veggies Few water infiltration signs on restaurant walls
Location: Sao Vicente caves A few levadas close by Porto Moniz, Santana nearby
After spending a week in Funchal, we moved to Sao Vicente for three days, so that our trips would be shorter. The hotel is not easy to find by searching for the address - both car's GPS and our own did not find it. However, searching for a POI (point of interest) did the trick. There are also a few road signs pointing to the hotel. The room we got had a view towards the beautiful valley. Room seemed to us a bit outdated, with the common parts of the hotel receiving most of the attention, for e.g. on the 1st floor there's a sledge similar to those used for the Toboggan Run in Funchal. Weather seems to be a bit chillier in this area than in south / Funchal. We did not expected all our mornings to be dull during June.
