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.

3/5

Great location, very outdated and sterile.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.

Pros: The beach.

Cons: Mostly everything.

Location: Beach
