The quintessential tourgroup hotel. Once a luxury 4 star hideaway, now a deteriorated noisy and busy place with worn out rooms and intetiors. The best of the hotel: nice location; great views, very decent breakfast, large rooms. The worst: incredibly noisy: neighbour's bathroom, doors , footsteps. Noise increased by wooden floors and doors. Sleeping without earplugs is impossible. Staff is...

Stayed here for one night as part of an Explore walking group. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was a balcony and a good view. Local delicacies were served in the restaurant - I had black scabbard fish (in batter) with baked banana and passion fruit sauce. Everything was perfectly fine.

We had a one night stay in O Colmo while we were travelling around Madeira. We booked a double room, upon arrival we were placed in a twin room. The beds were apparently comfy but there were some issues with the heating, it proved to be a bit temperamental. In room 103 the furnitures are a bit old, as also...

At Last! A hotel that provides 1x firm and 1x soft pillow so you can choose your preference rather than either over-stuff or sink into the mattress! Coupled with an excellent evening menu this was a great place to stay only to be let down by a lack of a hot meal option at breakfast (with the exception of hard...

We stayed 1 night here as our apartment was not available on the day we arrived. The room was fine with a nice view of the town and mountains but the heating did not work but having just arrived it was no problem as it felt warm after the UK! Bed and furnishings were comfortable and a nice bathroom. OK...

The swimming pool was really warm and rarely used, same with the Jacuzzi. the staff were really friendly and arrange things...

Its not luxury but is a very nice place to stay for doing hiking trips and so on. We gave 3 stars because it wasnt as hygienic as we hoped. There were always aunts on the morning buffet around the table, not on the food itself. The bathroom was not cleaned that good and the tissues in the bathroom had...

Nice big enough room. The staff is very friendly. There was no airco in the room. Can't leave window open because of musquitos. Swimming pool is in the basement. Good breakfast and very big dining area.

It is a clean hotel. Decorated with antiques. Restaurant serves very good meals for supper and breakfast is good. Comfortable stay after long hike with clean bathrooms. Lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful. We used jacuzzi after hike. Great value for the money and good comfort. Stayed in 7 different hotel on the island.
