We have just come back off a four night break staying at the Santa Catarina. The staff are super friendly and very efficient. The hotel is modern but maybe it's getting a little tired now. The bedrooms are spacious and biggish bathrooms. We had a problem in the first 24 hours with hot water but the hotel moved us to...

Just come back from a weeks stay in Madeira. Positives - 2 minute walk to the connecting buses to Funchal and other areas. 5 minute walk to the local restaurants and bars. Close access to sea front. Beds very comfortable. Excellent choice for breakfast. Negatives - A busy road and if front facing as we were, could be noisy at...

We stayed for ten days, bed & breakfast. I cannot fault the staff, who were all helpful and friendly. However the hotel is in need of some work. The pool area in particular was quite shabby. There were loose paving slabs, the toilet/changing rooms were dirty and, until our last day, the pool water was not very clean. On the...

Prior to booking here I had read both the negative and positive points and am absolutely certain I made the right decision to book. Far from being a problem the planes were fascinating to watch coming in to land at the VERY near by airport. The flyover was also no problem apart from it blocking the sun at 5.30 and...

This was the ideal base for our lovely holiday in Madeira and all credit to the staff here for being so efficient and friendly. Our room on the third floor, with a seaview balcony, was ideal for the three of us, while breakfast was delicious, with an extensive hot and cold choice, including some of the best bread rolls, orange...

Was not checked into this hotel until 2pm the day after arrival, was put into another hotel above a shop. Ruined our first two days.

Reviewed 24 July 2016

The Hotel is kept immaculately clean & tidy. The bedroom (208) was more than we expected with balcony & sea view at no additional cost. The pool area could just benefit from a little maintenance of the patio slabs as quite a few were loose & uneven. Our overwhelming memory will be of the friendly staff, for whom nothing is...

I can't believe some people moan about this hotel for the money they have paid. We just paid about 30EUR per night. It's obviously basic compared with the Vila Gale but that's 4 times the price AND they charge for parking which is free here. Staff all friendly and helpful, Breakfast is cooked or continental and adequate although same every...
