Stayed here at the Inatel hotel for the past couple of nights. Room was just gorgeous, very modern, clean and comfortable. Lovely big shower! Air con was lovely and quiet! Room was cleaned every day. We stayed half board, nice selection of food, very yummy! Our room was on the 0 level, with a balcony overlooking the pool. Still very lovely to stand out on. A higher floor would probably provide views of the beach, but we didn't mind!
Only five minutes walk to the beach. Spent most of our time there as it's just beautiful! Hotel provides you with an umbrella which you can take to the beach, very ideal for this very hot time of year! Had a couple of dips in the hotel pool, which is kept nice and clean!
Very impressed by how well kept this hotel is, should be more than 3 stars! Free wifi in every room too, which is just so ideal to get in touch with relatives.
It was a very quiet, peaceful hotel. You didn't see many of the staff but when needed, they were very helpful. 2 minutes walk up the road was a bus stop to get to the centre, only €1.60 each! We did actually walk it the first day, took about 40-45 minutes which is not too bad when you get to see a lot of the island!
Recommend this hotel, quite happily stay here again!

It´s a small hotel but perhaps that's why the hotel can provid a cosy staying.
The staff is amasing, always thinking in your needs. The suites are very confortable and everything is always very well cleaned. Imagine a beach hotek with children, it has to be cleaned.
It's a 3 star hotel witn rooms of some of the 4 stars I know. Very good value for money.

Room tip: If you are in a low budget chose room to mountain, but for a small amount more you can choose rooms that have a view to Calheta, and you will be able to have a little site to the ocean. The suite have a capacity for 4 adults - to in the beedroom and 2 in the living room

Difficult review this as the hotel was VERY quiet (as was the whole island) in December.
Sometimes we two were the only guests, so the ambience was all ours !
However, this is an excellent hotel that appears newly refurbished.
Friendly and efficient reception provided two access cards with no problems.
Not always English speaking staff available but this didn't present any problems.
Our balcony had a pleasant access overlooking the garden and (enormous) swimming pool.
The swimming pool appeared to have disabled access (a ramp into the water).
Childrens play area, nice gardens.
Free WIFI throughout, we got WIFI in the room but this may not apply to all rooms.
Lift
Our room didn't have a bath but an impressive shower.
Lots of storage space, air-con. TV.
Breakfast - coffee, choice cereal,bread ham cheese, Yoghurts. Scrambled eggs & little sausages, suspect I could have had a bigger (hot) choice if I spoke Portuguese.
Walk through to beach, suspect a beach bar but not open when we were there.
New building 200 mtrs (?) away rumoured to be a convalescent home.
Overall excellent hotel
I am told Porto Santo goes mad in July and August so suspect this could be a totally different experience then, but we enjoyed our (very) quiet break.

Room tip: Suggest a sea view would be excellent.

Highlights :
- rooms have been renovated very recently, light and fresh colours and design : unexpected for a 3 star hotel!
- it is the last hotel of the strip (seems like there one is in construction next to it, though), so you are closer from the wildest part of the incredibly long and wonderful golden sandy beach.
- good wifi everwhere

The personal was very friendly, and willing to help. However, very little or no foreign languages spoken, depending on the employees. There is an okay restaurant (Joao) down the road. For better gastronomic experiences, you have to have a car or a bike.

Have been over there in Inatel, while it wasn't yet renewed, the overall Hotel was really requiring refurbishment. It's just next to the beach, just walking about 200 meters, are you are on a great beach. Overall the food was average, and not bad but nothing special, the animation was limited.
