Thank you so much guys. I enjoyed my day. I felt like a family member in this house of Rodolfo and his wife, Paula. The hotel can't be closer to the beach and the rooms are comfortable and spacious. The quite surroundings and the sound of the ocean at night are the key for a relaxing sleep. For me, this is the place.
Hotel Vila Bela is a paradise located in a peaceful place of Porto da Cruz, surrounded by hills, ocean, and big rock. If you prefer rather quiet place with typical Madeira atmosphere, Hotel Vila Bela is a good choice. The view from the room is incredible, the cleanness is number one, and the staff is awesome. Porto da Cruz is also a good place for many trips around the island and for surfing (2 spots just around the corner). Highly recommended.
Everything is excellent. This is a small but very welcoming family hotel in a perfect location with clean and comfortable rooms, kind and friendly staff, and beautiful views. The greatest of it all is the ocean! It is the first thing you see in the morning. It looks so close and feels like the waves are coming to your bed. The owners' interest in their guests and spirit of sharing made our stay unforgettable. For example, there was an anniversary celebration of the hotel on our first evening. Paula and Rodolfo were so kind to invite their guests for grilled sardines. It was the best sardines I've ever eaten in my life. This is just one example of hospitality and friendliness of these people. Thank you so much! You need to note that this is 2-star hotel. So if you are expecting a mini bar in your room, continental breakfast, and 5-star hotel facilities, this is not your place. However, if you want to stay away from tourists' crowds and souvenir shops, enjoy the beauty of the island, and have relaxing and friendly atmosphere, I would kindly recommend you this hotel. For us coming from a busy city, it was a perfect getaway. I would be happy to stay there again.
